Late Winter Home Maintenance for February

February is the perfect month to start preparing for spring cleaning and gearing up for gardening.

Keeping Up With Your Monthly Improvements will Add Value to Your Home




Make a list of all major indoor projects that need to be done.  Make sure to prioritize them so you can get the most urgent out of the way. 

Here are a list of home improvements that I recommend:

Check and clean grout between tiles in kitchen and baths.  Re-grout if necessary.  This is most important in baths (near showers and tub) because water damage can be costly. 

Check flooring and carpet.  Does your carpet need to be cleaned or even better "replace it"...take advantage of sales now.

If you have a "GREEN thumb" ...start your seeds now - the best time to start seeds is in February!
So you can have those beautiful flowers in later months.

Prune roses - 18 inches is the optimum height.

Fertilize perennials and rototill empty garden beds if soil is dry enough.
