When you think of spring cleaning, cleaning your home’s interior is probably the first thing that comes to mind – but your home’s exterior needs some love too. Creating an outdoor spring-cleaning checklist will help you get the outside of your home in shape for a worry-free spring and summer.

Don’t forget to add these 4 tasks to your spring cleaning checklist:

  1.  Gutters

Grab a ladder and get ready to rid your gutters of the dead leaves and debris that have been clogging them since last fall. Spring weather is unpredictable, and you never know when a rain storm might hit. Leaving your gutters uncared for prevents rain water from properly draining off of your roof, which can lead to roof damage, foundation problems, and more.

  1. Windows

Cleaning the inside of your windows is likely part of your regular in-home cleaning routine – but what about the outside? Set out to clean your windows’ exteriors this spring. It won’t take much more than a garden hose, a microfiber cloth, some mild soap, and a squeegee. The results? A squeaky-clean view of those bright spring days.

  1. Siding

After sitting untouched through the fall and winter months, your home’s siding is ready for a little TLC. Your go-to partner in crime for this task will be your trusty power washer. With the help of a power washer, cleaning siding becomes a quick and easy job. Don’t have a pressure washer? Shop our selection here.

  1. Patio Furniture

Whether you brought your outdoor furniture inside during the off season or protected it from the elements with furniture covers, it’s time to give it a little tune up. Freshen up your furniture before using it becomes part of your day-to-day routine – no one wants to dine at a dirty patio table.
