Spring Cleaning Checklist

Home Improvement

Whether you're getting ready for the next family party or planning to sell your home, below is a list of item to consider cleaning this Spring. My suggestion is to decide which to hire , split among loved ones or do yourself. Once the list is down to a reasonable size,  identify one or two items per week to finish. It will be simpler and you might have a chance to get most of them done. I'm sure there will be a few you can decide to leave for next year.
