Spring Cleaning
Home Maintenance
As a busy homeowner, it is easy to fall into the trap of pushing off tasks that maintain the long-term value of your home in favor of more pressing problems. That’s OK, to a point, as certain house-cleaning projects should be in the “long-term maintenance” category. But putting them on hold for too long can have disastrous results. As with so many things in life, preventive maintenance can save a lot of future effort and cost in your home, too.

We’ve put together the following checklist of cleaning projects that can save you headaches – and money – down the line.

Wellness is important for everyone.
Harmony Hill is a local non-profit that provides wellness retreats, workshops, and public events for all but the heart of their mission is to support the survivorship of people affected by cancer. In 2004 they began to offer cancer related programs at no charge. FiS employees have all been affected by someone in their lives with cancer and believe Harmony Hill is doing a great thing for those who need it most.
