Your Guide To Beginning Your Spring Cleaning
Spring is the perfect time for home maintenance and cleaning. As the weather warms, you get to throw open the windows, let in the fresh air, and shake of all of the dust and stagnation that accumulated over the winter months. When you do, here are a few spring cleaning tips to help you make the most of the elbow grease you put in.
- Windows: So the spring sun can shine in, cleaning your windows is important. Choose to wash the windows themselves on a cloudy day so the solution you use will not dry too quickly. Also, take off your screens and clean them with warm water and dishwashing liquid. Finally, clean your window treatments. Many fabric varieties can be thrown in the dishwasher. Blinds are best cleaned with a damp cloth.
- Under Furniture And Appliances: You might need a helper to tackle this task, but the accomplished feeling you will get after makes it well worth it. Roll up your rugs, move furniture, and pull out kitchen appliances to clean the floors underneath. Doing so once a year ensures excessive grime does not build up.
- Safety Devices: Speaking of things you should do at least once a year (though we recommend performing these checks monthly), as you move from room to room in your house check the smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. Test that they are working properly, and swap out the batteries so your family will stay safe this spring.
With all of the effort that you put into maintaining your home, it deserves to be fully protected.
