Spring Cleaning & Decluttering

Happy Spring! Spring is a time for renewal, brighter days and cleaning after a long winter. Whether you own a single-family home or manage a larger set of properties, there is routine maintenance and cleaning that can be done to make the rest of the year go smoothly.

You may already have a long to-do list. Don't forget these additional tips!  

  1. Cut back tree limbs and shrubs growing close to the structure to reduce potential damage from storms and assist with drainage. 
  2. Check for damage to the roof or gutters before spring storms tear loose additional roofing or create leaks in the property.
  3. Test the air conditioning system and clean/replace the furnace filter to improve the efficiency of the HVAC system.
  4. Check windows inside and out for possible re-caulking and screen repairs prior to windows being opened and to reduce AC bills.
  5. Check the garbage disposal and clean/repair if needed - this is an often-needed maintenance and cleaning item ignored until it is too late and a costly repair.
  6. Maintain landscaping and check the perimeter of the property for external signs of rodents.
  7. Communicate routinely with your tenants about cleaning and repairs.

If you are doing routine maintenance or spring-cleaning tasks and find yourself faced with piles of clutter, strong odors, rodent droppings or unexpected biohazard materials, please call Bio-One Columbus for assistance. We are experts in professionally and efficiently cleaning spaces of all sizes and in varying degrees of disorder. Call us today at 614-743-1795 for a free consultation.

Spring Cleaning Fun Facts

  • You are never alone in bed! The average mattress contains sweat and skin flakes, which attract mites. Clean sheets routinely and vacuum your least once a week.
  • Spring cleaning is a great workout. It works out all major muscle groups, requires balance and coordination and can burn up to 200 calories per hour. 
  • The average household carpet can store a huge amount of dirt — most of which is usually hidden deep within the pile. According to one estimate, each square meter of carpet is capable of holding up to a kilo of dirt. 
  • Melatonin, the hormone that causes sleepiness, is highest during the winter. During spring, the increase in sunlight and decrease in melatonin gives us a natural energy boost -- making spring a time many of us feel energized to clean!
