Every month, we share easy tasks you can do to keep your home in tip-top shape all year long. In August, we still have warm weather and a few summer days left to enjoy. So, here are 4 things you can do for your home this month:
1. Get Rid of Allergens: Many people suffer from allergies due to dust mites. But there are ways to rid your home of the dust without spending all day cleaning! Look for where dust lurks. Use a damp cloth to clean all window blinds and fan blades (here is a link to the pillowcase trick http://lifehacker.com/5823341/clean-your-ceiling-fan-easily-with-a-pillow-case ) once a month. If you have carpet, make it a priority to vacuum on a regular basis. These things will get rid of the dust and help to prevent allergies.
2. Clean the Grill: After a summer of heavy use, make sure your grill is still in good shape. Heat it up for 10-15 minutes to burn off any residue and then scrub the grill with a wire brush. Cover it with a grill cover when not in use to keep it protected.
3. Plan a Fun Labor Day Weekend! Okay, this isn't really a home maintenance item but it's fun! Labor Day weekend is getting close! Why not schedule a cookout or party with family an friends?
