Germ Warfare: Replace your air filter! Taking in all your exhaled germs, pet-hair, and anything else floating around your home in microscopic particles, your furnace has been diligently keeping you and your family from turning into icesicles all winter long. Treat it (and yourself) to a new filter. Check out the size you need and take a stroll to your local hardware store. Your furnace will thank you, your immune system will like you as well.
Bug and Pest Removal
Battle the Bugs: It’s time to put away the heavy quilts, blankets and bear-skin rugs for the spring and summer. Be sure to wash and thoroughly dry all bedding before storing. Dirty bedding is a great way to attract moths and insects. Utilize zippered or vacuum-seal storage bags, it’ll save space and also protect you from the aforementioned bug friends.

With the warm weather bringing rain and humidity, attics and basements could become tenants for this nastiness, causing health problems and structural damage to your home.
