Spring Cleaning Checklist

Real Estate


Spring is here, at least on the calendar!   Those warmer days are coming for outdoor work, but while it's still cool, finish the spring cleaning jobs inside. 
Regular maintenance on your home is very important, especially if you are going to sell in a few years.  Keep it up and there will be less to worry about when the time comes.
You learn something new everyday...so here is my new tip....if you are on private well, then you have a well pressure tank and maybe some water conditioner equipment.
Take a close look at what they look like....are they getting a black color on them?  If so, it could be mold.  Get some moldicide and clean the equipment thoroughly.  Be sure to follow 
the directions closely.   Happy Spring!
