A lot of people are spring cleaning, and I would like to add a few things that get overlooked oftentimes while cleaning up, and some how-to's.

Please, check and test your smoke detectors!

Most use a 9 volt battery.

Clean the filters on your AC system.

If you have window units, refer to the manual (if you still have it). Most are easy to clean, and this will decrease the energy costs.

If you have Central Air, change the filter on the air return. Also, have your system checked out. Some places will check it for little to nothing.

Clean around your outside unit also, removing any debris that may have gotten around or inside the unit.

Check and clean the vents above your stove. Also, while your at it, check under the range top and under the oven itself for anything that needs cleaning.

Now is also a good time to have your car completely cleaned. This includes inside as well as outside.

Most never clean the engine or trunk area. Make sure to get those cleaned also.

If you are having your car serviced, have them also check all hoses, cables, lights, and vents in the car to make sure they are in working order.

Get the AC checked and serviced if you have not done this in a few years. This will improve gas mileage and the life of the system.

Cleaning out the "junk drawer".

I know it's a mess, but GET RID of the clutter. Go through it and get rid of anything that is not needed. Receipts from 1998 are trash!

And speaking of trash, clean your garbage cans using a bleach solution, to disinfect them also.

All that yellow junk on your shower walls?

Here is a tip. Instead of scrubbing and scrubbing, get some toilet bowel cleaner and use that. Spray some on the stains, and let sit for about 1/2 hour, and just wipe clean.(Do wear gloves though.)

Computer cleaning.

Not only does your computer need to be kept clean against viruses and malware, but also from dust and dirt that gets in through the vents in the system.

This dust reduces the systems ability to get rid of heat, and heat is the number one killer of electronics.

If you are uneasy about opening electronics to clean them of dust and debris, take it to a professional.(Just not StarTech - read the reviews left all over.)

If your entire computer needs cleaning, insode and out, including virus removal and dust removal, I can always do that for you. Message me here on Topix.
