Spring in Payson, Arizona is the perfect time of year for an annual cleanup of your house and yard. The weather hasn’t yet turned hot, the ground is still soft from recent snow and rain (making weeding and raking easier) and it’s a good idea to get it out of the way earlier in the year before the summer holidays and events arrive.
Maintaining Clutter Inside
Taking time to manage the clutter inside your house is always a positive thing to do, especially when you’re able to take the clothes and items you’re getting rid of and donate them to one of the local thrift stores here in town — you’re doing something good for you, and for your community.
Yard Maintenance Outside
It’s also important to keep the outside of your house clean and clutter-free; this includes your attic, shed, or garage, as the less clutter you have, the less attraction you’ll have for mice and insects. A few simple ways you can do this are:
- keeping rain gutters clean
- raking leaves and branches in your yard
- sweeping your driveway and porch or deck area
- trimming back trees or shrubs
By following a few simple tricks to maintaining your home and yard, it not only saves you time and money in the long run, but keeps your property looking fresh and inviting!
