A checklist for spring organizing

Start your spring organizing now and then relax…

Thanks to Cindy Bernstein of Aim4Order for this episode of Tips from the Pros with a checklist for spring organizing.

Spring is finally here and I’ve created a checklist of things to do to get rid of the clutter around the house. Some things might have to wait – like putting away the winter boots and coats – until the weather gets a little warmer. The less clutter you have, the less time you spend looking for lost items and the more time you have to spend with your family and friends.

Entryway

  • Put away winter mittens, snow boots, hats and coats you won’t need any more.
  • Make sure you have enough space in the closet for everything. If not, add a shelf or hooks.
  • If you have a cabinet or drawers in your entry, go through ...

The Importance of a Chimney Cap

Thanks to Clean Sweep for this episode of Tips from the Pros about chimney caps.

Chimney caps are a relatively small and inexpensive thing to install, but they play a vital role in the safety of your home and chimney. The small piece of metal installed at the top of your chimney prevents numerous potential mishaps from occurring, including animals entering your home and excess moisture accumulating.

Keep Critters Outside

During the colder months, animals spending time on your roof or near your gutters will sense the warmth from your chimney when you have a fire lit. As a result, the critters will make nests close to or inside of the chimney flue...

Thanks to Clean Sweep for this episode of Tips from the Pros about inspecting your home after a storm.

When preparing to list a home, many home buyers have the most critical and expensive pieces of the property inspected—the roof, the chimney, the foundation and more. However, a major storm can completely change the safety of these essential parts of a home. It’s better to fix problems before you have an offer and you’re sitting at a table with a home inspection report.

Roof and Exterior Siding

Even if you have durable slate roofing, a great deal of damage can be done in a short period of time. Have the roof inspected for missing or broken shingles, holes, dents and any other damage...
