Advice from Hank – Cleaning List

Sometimes half of the struggle of maintenance around the home is figuring out what projects to tackle in the winter. Below, you’ll find a list of indoor cleaning projects. Consider it a checklist of suggestions, and reading this list may trigger other project ideas. At the very least, here’s a good start:

  • Clean the attic and basement. Give away or throw away unwanted items or clothing.
  • Wash Windows and repair screens.

  • Clean out the office and throw away any old files.
