February Home Maintenance Checklist

With the weather cold outside, February is a good month to put your nesting instinct to work and get your home as clean and cozy as possible. When the warm weather arrives, you’ll be glad you got a head start on these indoor tasks so you can spend more time outdoors.

Declutter and organize

- Consolidate half-empty containers of cleaning supplies and wipe down shelves before replacing items.

- Get rid of frayed, worn out towels and sheets in your linen closet.

- Sort, shred and file papers; back up digital files on your computer.


- Wipe down interior windows, window sills, vacuum walls, corners and baseboards.

- Wash or dry clean comforters, duvets and bed skirts.

- Pillows can be fluffed in the dryer on a no-heat setting.

- Open a window to let in some fresh air.

- Use an air purifier or buy some house plants to keep the indoor air clean.

Protect and maintain

- Place washable rugs at all entry doors to protect floors from melting snow, salt and sand.

- Test smoke and carbon dioxide detectors; change batteries as needed.

Also, if you’re planning to put your home on the market this spring, schedule your no obligation Pre-Market Consultation, where we would talk about any repairs or improvements you’ll need to make. We have found that February is a good month to hire any painters, contractors or landscapers and make a schedule of work to be done.
