February is finally here, which means we’re inching closer towards spring every day. The worst of the winter chill isn’t quite over yet, so there are plenty of seasonal tasks to continue throughout the month. If you’re looking for fresh ways to maintain a clean and healthy home this February, read on!
Tackle the Linens
Maryland residents are no stranger to the low temperatures of February. Often, snowfall persists throughout February and even into March! It’s okay to embrace the nesting instinct, but it’s important to maintain all of the bedding in your home thoroughly. At least once or twice this February, remove all bed linens (including comforters, duvets, pillows, etc.) and launder the load on a warm to hot cycle. Washing the bedding reduces the allergens that collect during the winter months. It also limits the spread of cold and flu germs throughout the house!
If you have a Netflix account, you might be familiar with the new series, Tidying Up with Marie Kondo. We can’t all be as organized as Marie Kondo, but we can take heed of her advice! As you organize the bookshelf and coordinate your closet, ask yourself if you need everything you own. If not, consider donating your books, sweaters, or shoes to a local charity. Not only will you be helping those in need, but you’ll learn to de-clutter your home!
HVAC experts recommend that homeowners change their air filters every three months, but it’s advisable to change them more often during heavy usage months! If your heat has been running consistently, change the air filter this February to ensure that the air in your home is clean and healthy.
