Monthly House Maintenance Checklist for the month of March

Updated: Feb 27, 2022

Get your house ready for the spring and summer months by doing some of those inside chores in February! The air in your home will be fresher, and your furnace will run more effectively if you take a few minutes to do some essential maintenance on it. Make sure you have rubber gloves, a citrus cleaner, and baking soda on hand; then roll up your sleeves and go to work.

Start with your bedroom

You've heard that your bedroom has an impact on how well you sleep. A restful night's sleep is more likely when you're lying in a comfortable, freshly made bed. Once or twice every week, you can be assured that your sheets and pillowcases will be fresh and inviting when you go into bed at night. You can keep the air in your bedroom free of allergens and dust particles by vacuuming and dusting regularly. Bacteria and viruses can't hide in your house when you have this system in place.

Clean the kitchen

Infested kitchens are a breeding ground for cockroaches, rats, and mice. Preventing bugs from invading your kitchen may be done by keeping it clean. Pests are scared away by the strong smell of cleaning materials. It's much simpler to prepare meals when you don't have filthy dishes and empty wrappings all over the counters. It takes a lot of time and effort to cook in the middle of a mess in your kitchen. Having an untidy kitchen might also dampen your enthusiasm for preparing nutritious food. You'll always walk into a neat place if you maintain it clean every day. In addition to keeping it clean regularly, your kitchen must be well organized. Try to keep your counters and dishes clean by putting little gadgets in their proper places.

Clean the air filter

Asthma and allergy sufferers may be more sensitive to the effects of a dirty air filter. It can pollute the whole HVAC system if the filter is stopped. Replacement of the air filter is essential for maintaining a healthy indoor environment. Keeping a clean filter in the system can save you both time and money in the long run. For many homeowners, dirty furnace filters are the last straw as they threaten the efficiency of their heating and cooling system. When your filter is clogged, your system has to work harder to generate the same level of energy consumption. Filters get clogged with debris, making it difficult for air to circulate, ultimately leading to overheating. Your utility bills will increase as a result.
