“Failing to plan is planning to fail”…a catchy quote that’s been attributed to a few folks, but typically is credited to Alan Lakein. The moral of this story is that planning is important! Whether you’re planning your dream vacation to Ireland, saving for college, or planning your spring cleaning, it’s important to get ahead of the game whenever possible. If you have a big summer planned, why not start scheduling your spring cleaning chores today? Little steps like this will free up time in the future to enjoy some much-deserved down time!

After a tough Idaho winter, your home’s exterior will be more than ready for a little TLC! Start with power washing the dirt and grime away, leaving your home free of the leftover winter filth. Once that task is done, look at your windows. How did they hold up over the cold winter months? They are also likely to need a professional cleaning. While many of us believe we can handle this chore ourselves, window cleaning in the Boise area should be left to a professional. There are many hazards associated with cleaning windows. If you have multiple stories in your home or business, you’ll face a significant fall hazard if you don’t have the right equipment. It also gets windy here in the Treasure Valley at times. Being on a ladder doesn’t seem to be the best idea on those days.

Take a moment today to break out your calendar and schedule these spring cleaning tasks. Other considerations may include spring junk removal, yard waste cleanup, and purging overflowing closets. Minimizing some of these areas will give you a sense of accomplishment and set you up for a great summer! Don’t wait…another great quote says, “procrastination makes easy things hard, hard things harder”. Take charge and set yourself up for success!
