  • Don't overlook ceiling fans, light fixtures, and window sills to improve indoor air quality.

Refresh Your Floors:

  • Sweep and mop hardwood floors, focusing on high-traffic spots.

  • Thoroughly vacuum carpets and rugs, considering professional cleaning for deeper dirt removal.

Clean Windows and Screens:

  • Clean both sides of windows for a streak-free shine, especially in sunny Southern California.

  • Wash window screens with mild detergent to ensure clear views and optimal airflow.

Tackle Outdoor Spaces:

Revive Outdoor Furniture and Decor:
