How to make your spring cleaning more efficient

Spring CleaningIt is that time of the year again. You have to think about how to tackle the inevitable spring cleaning. Chances are that you have neither the time, nor the energy to invest in a large scale project like this. The easiest way to get things done is of course to hire a professional cleaning company like Cleaning to do the job for you. If you do not want to do that – the reasons might be various and they are of no importance here – there are several tips that you can follow in order to get things done easier and with as little hassle as possible.

  • Start with the doormats. They add a welcoming spirit to your home, but they also keep much of the dirt and dust off the premises of your home. So clean them carefully and thoroughly.

  • Pay special attention to your carpets and upholstery. Most of the unwelcomed guests in your home like dust, dirt, mites and bacteria live there, so rent a carpet cleaning machine, vacuum all surfaces and then use the power of steam to finish the job in the best way possible.

  • If you have wood floors anywhere in your home you can easily protect them and prolong their life by re-finishing the surface. There are wash-and-wax cleaners available on the market, and they are your safest bet for a hassle-free wood floor treatment.

  • You can safely use a sponge and dishwashing detergent to wash the walls in your home from any dust that had not fallen on the floor, thus preventing your walls from looking in the best shape possible.

  • Do not forget to vacuum under all big pieces of furniture in your living room. You will be surprised how much dirt and dust have been accumulated under them for the course of just one year.

  • Change the filters of the conditioner vents and use a soft cloth to remove any dust from the ceiling fixtures in order to provide fresh air in your home for another year. The same goes for the light fixtures as well.

  • Do not forget to get everything out of the refrigerator and thoroughly clean it. There is no better way to ensure you and your family are going to be healthy than to store your food supplies in a bacteria-free environment at any time.

  • If you don’t have the time and knowledge to clean the oven by yourself just don’t bother. It’s always better to leave  that specific task to a professional and have a mojito on the porch of your sparkling clean house.
