Spring begins this week, and that can only mean one thing – it’s time for a good o’l fashioned cleaning! To help motivate you for this process we want to point out some important tips to for you to keep in mind before you break out the rags. Follow these tips as your clean your home for the spring season.

Organize
We’d bet that you acquired a lot more stuff over the holidays and throughout the year.
It’s time to put that stuff where it belongs. Purchase some clear plastic containers, and get to organizing your things! You’ll be amazed how easy it is to find stuff when
everything is in its place.

Clean
Alright, now you can break out the dust rags. Start with your appliances. When was the last time you cleaned your refrigerator’s coils using a vacuum? Or what what about replacing the filters in your
furnace/air conditioner and stove hood? Clean and maintained
appliances run more efficiently, which can mean a lower electric
bill.

Update Your Home Inventory
You might as well kill two birds with one stone here. Since you’re organizing and cleaning – update your home inventory, or create one. An up-to-date home inventory can help make the recovery
process easier if you need to file an NJ homeowners insurance claim. It’s really easy too! You just have to make a
list of your stuff and take pictures!!

Prepare for an Emergency
Spring is an excellent time to replace the batteries in your smoke and
carbon monoxide detectors, and make sure they are working properly. It’s also a great time to check the expiration dates and charges of your home’s fire
extinguishers.

Make Sure You Are Covered
Now that your home is spring cleaned, take a few minutes to make sure your NJ homeowners insurance orNJ renters insurance
is too. If you’ve done some renovating, or acquired some new expensive
jewelry or taken on some new a policy
upgrade may be in order. Talk to an agent today!
