You may want to start with simple spring cleaning tasks:
- Change and/or service your furnace filters, HVAC, smoke and CO detector batteries
- Deep-clean your oven, dishwasher, coffee maker and outdoor grill, as well as drapes, upholstery, cabinets, floors, vents and baseboards
- Clean your mudroom, garage and outbuildings, and, in the process, inventory items that need replacing
Check out the Chubb Insurance brochures: How to Prepare your Home and Garden for Spring and Summer infographic or their Top 10 Spring Cleaning Tasks for more ideas and tips. Also, it’s important to remember there are common household cleaning products you should never mix, such as bleach and ammonia or bleach and rubbing alcohol. Learn more.

You may be better off leaving projects with electrical components or those at heights, for example, to professionals who have the right equipment and skillset.
