Spring is here in Odessa and Midland, and that means we’re already seeing temperatures in the 90s. Before it gets too hot, it’s probably a good idea for you to tackle a few home improvement projects. In this post, we’ll discuss some of the advantages of a good spring cleaning and how it can benefit you and your household.

STOP THE SNIFFLES

Allergies are notoriously bad in the springtime. All that new pollen in the air can wreak havoc on your nose! The good news is that there are a few things you can do around the house that can help. The key point is keeping those outdoor allergens away from the inside of your home and letting your HVAC system manage the air you’re breathing. This includes things like regularly washing your clothes and bedsheets. Take your shoes off when you’re inside to prevent allergens from sticking to your carpet. Mop and dust your home regularly, and make sure to keep screens in any open windows or doors.

A whole-home air purifier, such as the HALO-LED can help keep the air in your home as clean as possible!

DUCT INSPECTION

Your air ducts carry treated air from your HVAC unit to the living spaces in your home. Over time, they can accumulate dust, pollon, mold, or other allergens. It’s a good idea to get them professionally cleaned every few years, but there is a simple step you can take on your own. Remove the register grates from each vent and reach in and wipe away any dust you can reach. While you’re at it, clean the register, too.

SEALING AIR LEAKS

If sunlight or water can get through the cracks in your doors or windows, that means air can get through too! Make sure they’re good and sealed. During the summer this will keep the cool air inside, and the hot air outside!

CLEAN AND TEST

Preparing your air conditioner for the busy summer season is perhaps the most important thing you can do to get ready for the heat. The Darville Company’s Clean and Test will professionally inspect and test your entire system, making sure it’s ready for the summer ahead. Regular tune-ups also ensure that your system will last longer and won’t need replacing as quickly. A couple of simple things you can do to help include regularly changing your air filters, and making sure your outdoor unit is clear of leaves or other debris.
