Spring has arrived, and millions of Americans are spending weekends cleaning their homes from head to toe.
If you look closely as you drive through your surrounding neighborhoods, you'll see anything from window washing on ladders to boxes upon boxes stacked outside as the basement, attic or spare room suggesting that spring cleaning is more than just a few laps around the living room with the vacuum cleaner.
In addition to the cleaning, spring often sparks interest from home owners to upgrade their homes with projects that go beyond buying Windex or throwing away old books or magazines. But alas, not everyone falls into the category of an expert or even competent when it comes to do it yourself. That's when the majority of home owners turn to ask for help when it comes to upgrading their house or attempt to find fixes that even the most novice of would be handy men and women can handle.
First on that list is painting, an endeavor that most everyone assume they can handle on their own. That sentiment seems realistic, but only if you're ceiling are modest as far as height and you aren't tackling the entire house. Painting and subsequent products have afforded the home owner the ability to mix and match colors and actually complete the job without splattering paint or their dreams and aspirations of a newly remodeled room as far as color scheme goes.
From inside to outside, landscaping is much like the outdoor version of painting in that everyone feels that it's something that can do. Most of the time, that mentality makes perfect sense. Mulch or river rocks by the bags, coupled with a five gallon bucket, rake and shovel, can easily transform your drab outdoor area into something sizzling for summer.
