The Federal Reserve Board has approved a plan to let homeowners sweep their houses without the use of costly tools, like chisels and hammers, to do it.
The board on Tuesday approved the plan, which will be approved by Congress next month.
The new tool, which is being called the “street sweepers” program, is similar to the program that was recently rolled out in California, according to a press release.
The program, which was originally set to be implemented by the end of the year, is expected to save homeowners hundreds of dollars and allow them to do their own housecleaning, which could reduce their mortgage payment and potentially lower their property tax bills.
It will be an affordable option for those who do not have the time to perform routine housecleans.
Homeowners can also sweep their floors, kitchen, bathroom and living room without having to use costly tools such as a broom, crowbar or chisel.
The federal bank, which regulates mortgage servicing, has been pushing for more affordable tools and other tools that could help homeowners sweep.
