At Floor Coverings International of Madison, we couldn’t be happier that spring is nearly upon us. Although we may spend most of our time indoors, installing gorgeous hardwood and carpet flooring, we’re still just as excited as anyone else about the return of the sunshine. In the spirit of this, we’ve put together a few tips for getting your home ready for the season, from getting your lawn in order to taking the plunge on the new tile or hardwood flooring you’ve been dreaming about.

Give Your Lawn a Manicure

Much in the same way that the flooring in your home tends to ground the entire aesthetic, your lawn acts as the anchor of your exterior look. Because of this, you’ll want to make sure that your lawn is in tip-top shape, especially heading into the warmer months. First things first: a bit of weeding and mowing is clearly essential. If your grass is quite as green as you’d like it to be at this point in the season, consider hiring a professional lawn painting service to add the color you’re looking for. In the same way that you wouldn’t let your hardwood floor go scuffed up and dirty, you’ll want to keep your lawn reflective of your home’s overall charm.

Check Your Interior Systems

The oncoming season is a perfect time to go over the interior systems in your home. Your major HVAC – heating, ventilation, and air conditioning – systems require some maintenance once a year, and spring is a perfect season for it. Not only will prices be lower for dealing with your heating system, you’ll also want to get your air conditioning set and ready to go for the hot summer waiting around the corner. Make sure that your air filters have been replaced or cleaned and stock up on new ones if your system requires disposable filters.

Spring Cleaning

It’s become tradition throughout America to give your home a good, deep clean as soon as spring comes around. Not only should you hit on all the major tasks, from reorganizing closets to cleaning your windows, you should also go over parts of your home that may have taken a beating over the winter, such as your fireplace. Aside from giving your flooring a good once over, you’ll also want to check the batteries on your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. There’s no better way to start the new season than with a well kept home!

Spring for New Flooring

Once you’ve taken care of your deep clean, you may be left finding your home wanting. One thing to consider is that a new flooring option may be just what your home is looking for. From new carpet in the master bedroom to perfectly laid hardwood in the kitchen, a fresh start to your home’s floors can inject a great deal of vigor into the general decor. Floor Coverings International of Madison offers only the best in hardwood, carpet, tile, and laminate flooring, and we always offer free in home estimates.
