Your February Checklist

Now is the perfect time to get a head start on your spring cleaning. See below for a February home maintenance checklist that will get you started.

  • Freshen indoor paint on walls, cabinets, doors, and trim.
  • Clean and reorganize your laundry room, so it’s clutter-free and more efficient.
  • Clean the air duct that connects the back of your dryer to the outside vents.
  • Clean the refrigerator condenser coils at the back or on the bottom of the appliance.
  • Clean the range hood filter and fan.
  • Clean and degrease kitchen cabinets.
  • Clean garbage disposal by running it with crushed ice to sharpen, then with baking soda and citrus peels.
  • Vacuum the box springs and the mattress top and bottom. Rotate or flip the mattress.
  • Check caulking and grout around sinks, showers, and tubs.
  • Inspect the roof (with a friend’s help holding the ladder) for missing shingles and damaged vent boots.
  • Check the foundation for cracks that can cause significant issues when spring rains arrive.
  • Test carbon monoxide and smoke detectors; replace batteries as needed.
