Spring Cleaning Your Home Inside and Out in 2024

As the first blossoms of spring bring colour back to the world, it’s time to shake off the dust of winter and refresh our homes. 

Spring cleaning in 2024 isn’t just about clearing clutter and wiping away winter’s grime; it’s about ensuring our homes are safe, efficient, and ready for the year ahead.

Interior Cleaning: Spring Cleaning Your Living Space

Decluttering and Organising

Spring cleaning is an excellent opportunity to declutter. Go room by room, sorting items to keep, donate, or throw away. This process not only frees up space but also makes deep cleaning easier. Once decluttered, organise your space to maintain a tidy and efficient home environment.

Deep Cleaning: Beyond the Surface

Focus on areas that are often overlooked during regular cleaning. Dust and wash walls, clean windows and window treatments, and shampoo carpets.

Pay special attention to high-traffic areas and surfaces that accumulate germs, like doorknobs, light switches, and remote controls.

Updating Home Safety Devices

Spring cleaning is also a good time to check and maintain home safety devices. Test smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, and fire extinguishers, replacing batteries or units as necessary.

Ensure your first aid kit is stocked and everyone knows where it is.

Embracing Eco-Friendly Cleaning

In 2024, eco-friendly cleaning is more than a trend; it’s a responsibility. Opt for natural, biodegradable cleaning products, and consider home-made solutions like vinegar and baking soda.

These choices are not only better for the environment but also safer for your family and pets.

Exterior Cleaning:

The Importance of Roof Cleaning and Inspection

The roof, often ignored, is crucial in protecting your home from the elements. Winter weather can be harsh on roofing materials, and without proper inspection and maintenance, minor issues can quickly become costly problems. 

A professional roof cleaning removes debris, like fallen branches and leaves as well as moss and lichen that can lift your tiles and slates. Anything apart from roofing materials, can trap moisture and lead to rot or mould. Additionally, a clean roof is more efficient at reflecting sunlight, potentially lowering the temperature of your home and cooling costs in the warmer months.

An inspection alongside cleaning the roof can identify potential issues like cracked or missing tiles, damage to the roof flashing, or other wear and tear. Early detection of these problems can save you from unexpected leaks, water damage, and the high costs associated with major roof repairs or replacement. The roof is not a visible area of your home from the ground, so sometimes the first sign you have that there is an issue, is once expensive and extensive works are needed.

It is possible to book a full Roof Inspection with Sam’s Gutters & Roofs to receive a full report about what exactly is happening above your head and protecting your family and possessions.

Gutter Maintenance: A Key Aspect of Home Care

Gutters play a vital role in directing water away from your home’s foundation, walls, and landscaping. Spring is the perfect time to clean and inspect your gutters. Winter can leave them clogged with leaves, twigs, and sediment, causing water to overflow and potentially damage your home’s exterior or foundation.

During the cleaning process, it’s also essential to inspect gutters for signs of damage, such as cracks, sagging, or detachment from the house. Ensuring that your gutters are in good condition and securely attached will prevent water infiltration issues, which can be especially problematic during spring showers.

If you book a gutter clearing with Sam’s Gutters & Roofs, we can inspect for any gutter repairs that may need carrying out and we may even be able to complete them in the same appointment – with your approval of course.
