With the warmer weather starting to roll in, loads of people are thinking about their spring cleaning. This year, instead of just doing a little extra dusting, take some time to do some serious deep cleaning.
Deep cleaning your home a few times a year is an important step to ensure a healthy, hygienic environment and keep everything feeling fresh for the months to come. Spring is the perfect time to bring out the big guns when it comes to freshening up your home, so read on for our 5 deep cleaning steps.
Get Your Drains Cleaned
First of all, something that’s not easy to clean on your own throughout the year is your pipes. With food and goodness-knows what else going down there on a constant basis, drains can begin to smell and we all know it’s not a super clean space.
Clean out your own drains to the best of your ability using natural cleaning agents like bicarbonate of soda, vinegar and lemons. You can also call a professional to help you handle blocked drains, Beaconsfield, or any other area you might be living in.
Eliminate Pest Problems
This step is only necessary once you’ve noticed signs of pests in your home, but can be extremely important. Pests like insects and rodents can carry diseases, be poisonous or contaminate the food in our pantries – which nobody wants to deal with.
If you notice there might be any kind of infestations in your home, basement, attic or yard, call professionals to have it sorted out safely, and be sure to keep kids and pets away from the pests while you wait for them to be cleared away.
Hire a Professional Carpet Cleaner
A weekly vacuum is never quite enough, and even getting on your hands and knees to scrub your carpets from time to time can never do the job quite right. It’s a much better idea to hire a professional cleaning service. Carpet cleaning companies have the knowledge and equipment to tackle different types of dirt and stains in different types of carpets.
This will ensure a super clean finished product, safe for your children to crawl around on and it will look as good as new too.
Tackle the Big Jobs
There are always going to be big, strenuous tasks we don’t want to do, but now is the time to get to them.
Think of things like washing your curtains and the sofa, cleaning the mattress, emptying out the pantry, and moving all the furniture away to clean behind it.
Begin the Decluttering Process
Getting rid of unneeded and unwanted stuff is a cornerstone of spring cleaning that cannot be ignored. Online, you can find plenty of decluttering tips to help you through the process if you have a huge home with plenty of clutter.
This is a great opportunity to donate some items to a charity and even sell your unused clothing to make some money and space in your closet for some new pieces for the warmer season.
