Greetings!  

It's that time of year where we all look forward to freshening up our home. A little Spring cleaning and a new paint color can work wonders. Read on for helpful tips on picking a new shade of paint, cleaning tile grout and coping with seasonal allergies.
 
CHOOSING A NEW PAINT COLOR 
The saying "opposites attract" holds true when using a paint color wheel. Try picking colors on the opposite end to compliment each other. For example a green shade of paint would compliment reddish tones in mahogany cabinets. If your counter tops are a blue hue, try a shade of orange on the walls. This also works for decorative accent pieces. A violet throw pillow would look beautiful against a yellow shade of paint.
 
CLEANING TILE GROUT WITH STEAM 
Years of cooking grease, mold and dirty snow boots can darken the grout color in the kitchen, bathroom and foyer. Try a steam cleaner to bring back the original grout color. Since grout is relatively porous heat and steam can penetrate deep into the grout to lift the dirt and residue to the surface to be easily wiped away.
 
SEASONAL ALLERGY TIPS
This time of year, who isn't sneezing more? Try these simple home tips to combat nasty allergens. Try cleaning or changing the filters in your cooling and heating system. Check with the manufacturer for your unit's specific requirements. If dust is one of your offenders, try a dust mite cover for your mattress and pillows. Who couldn't use a better night's sleep? Most air pollutants settle in rugs and furniture. Consider having your rugs and couches professionally cleaned.
 
I hope you find these tips helpful for a happy and healthy Spring season.

 
Sincerely,
Gerry
