Spring cleaning is a great way to shake off the winter time blues. As the weather warms and the cool breeze carries floral notes through the air, it’s time to clean up, de-clutter, and prepare for the warm weather ahead. Try making a list to ensure that all of those annual or twice annual cleaning chores are not forgotten.

While air filters should be changed between 4 to 12 times a year depending on the type of filter, it’s a great idea to replace it as spring cleaning is being done.
