Tips for Outdoor Spring Cleaning

Tips for Outdoor Spring Cleaning

What is a Spring clean? Spring is a great time for cleaning, optimizing, and refreshing your space. But don’t forget that it’s not just the inside of your house that needs an upgrade, it’s the outside too! From gutters, windows, and decks to your patio furniture – we’ve got you covered. Check out the spring cleaning tips that will help you get your house ready inside and out!


You’d be surprised what you can find in your gutters after a long winter. Springtime is the perfect time to clear out debris, leaves, and any other gunk that could be plugging up your gutters. It may not seem important to get this done before summer, but once the heavy rains start in the next few months, the water will need a clear passage. And don’t forget to check for potential leaks. We recommend flushing both gutters and downspouts with a hose to see if there is a place where water leaks out.

Leaf Bunnies

Although the name might sound cute, “leaf bunnies” are not something you want laying around. “Leaf bunnies” are accumulations of leaves clumped together, and you can find them all around the outside of your house. Deep cleaning flower beds and tree trunk areas will make an aesthetic improvement and also prevent the leaves from rotting and spoiling your outdoor greenery.


Warmer weather is a perfect opportunity to powerwash the side of your house. Cleaning off the dirt and grime build-up can help prevent mildew and mold damage. And the fact that your wall will look much nicer when they are clean is certainly an added bonus!

Garden and Landscape

You will want to hang out outside more now that the weather is warmer. So it’s a good idea to remove weeds, trim greenery, mulch your garden and beds, and plant new greenery. This will help make your outdoor space – a space where you want to be!

Porch and Patio

Make your porch or patio spring ready by sweeping away debris and cobwebs. Additionally, you’ll be surprised how much difference rinsing your walkway can make! Also, a great time to look for a new, fun and fresh doormat to welcome visitors.

Patio Furniture

If you have outdoor furniture, it might need some attention before you can start using it again. Spend time removing dirt and cobwebs from chairs and tables with a damp cloth. And check all cushions for dirt and tears. If you notice that any furniture is in poor condition, it is best to toss it rather than risk someone getting hurt. Also, look for deals on patio décor and add in fresh new lighting or table accents to help enjoy Spring evenings.


With the advancement of warmer weather, you can finally inspect the outside of your home and your garden for any damages that may have occurred during winter. Your walls and other structures may need a bit of paint, your garden could use some power raking and aerating, and the trees and brushes may need a little bit of extra care to bounce back from winter weather.


Windows are a focal point of any house, and making sure they are clean is a simple thing you can do to freshen up the look of your house. After months of rain and snow, windows lose their shine, so giving them a thorough wash is essential. Cleaning your windows will not only make the outside of your house look nicer, but it will also allow more light to come in inside. And who doesn’t want that spring/summer sunlight streaming freely into their homes?
