Spring Cleaning| Tax Reductions| Tax Season

Early Spring is tax season, and here at Property Tax Reduction Consultants, we know how hectic these days can be. Your property taxes are in good hands with our experts, but now it is your turn to step up to the plate. You need to get that house of yours in tip top shape so you can enjoy it to the fullest extent come Summer time. Here are some key areas to pay attention to»

One Step At a Time
The most important thing to remember is that pace is the key to success. If you try and get too much done in one day, you'll feel disappointed if you fall short. Set realistic goals for day one, day two and so on and so forth. Doing it this way allows for a deeper clean and you'll have greater satisfaction when the job is complete.
Curtain Call
Curtains are usually the buffer in between outdoor and indoor air throughout your home. This position leaves them vulnerable to dust and debris build up that you need to manage if you want allergen-free air. Cotton curtains can be washed the same way you would wash delicates, but don't forget to take out the hooks!
Deter Pests
Keeping a tidy home is automatically going to lower your risk for pest infestation, but during the Spring you should take it a step further. Get inside of your drawers and wipe them down with disinfectant to get rid of crumbs and eliminate a free meal for the neighborhood pests. This will also give you the opportunity to go in and eliminate the contents of your drawers that are unnecessary.
Deep Clean the Fridge
Take everything out of your fridge to start. Throw away any expired items and separate the leftovers into groups. Once this is complete, remove refrigerator drawers and soak them with soap and warm water in the sink. After they're washed and dried, place them back in and neatly restock the fridge in the groups you have designated.
Change HVAC Filters
Your HVAC system doesn't get much of a break here on Long Island. It goes right from the warming days of March to the cooling days of May, which makes April the perfect month to perform maintenance. Remove the filters from the unit and take them to the hardware store with you. Buy the same exact size filters and install them in your unit for cleaner Spring air!

We keep a pretty tight ship around here, but we are not claiming to be the cleaning experts by any stretch of the imagination. We just wanted to give our clients and readers some tips to help while they wait for their reductions to come in.
