Something about spring and new beginnings is always a refreshing time of year. Blooming trees and flowers, open windows with the breeze of the fresh air inside and new adventures. But with all the action homeowners still set aside time for spring-cleaning.
Where to begin? Let’s start with the six spring cleaning tips.
Outside: This is a fun area since we’ve been cooped up with the winter weather. Walk the surroundings of your home. Clean gutters, sheds, hose off porches and bring out the patio furniture! Turn on your sprinkler system and walk the grass to ensure no leaks or floods in the backyard.
Dust: Oh the dreaded light coat of film we see when the sun peaks through the windows. Start from top to bottom of the room you are working in. This can ensure getting the light fixtures, ceiling fans, and baseboards. Dusting can help with allergens in your home. Don’t forget the air conditioning vents too!
Cabinets, Walls, and Appliances: Using a wet sponge or cloth wipe down the areas with soap and water. For your appliances, you can use bleach or stainless steel cleaner.
Floors, Carpets & Rugs: Tile and grout can be cleaned every couple years to get a deep cleaning. Carpets and rugs can be professionally cleaned to remove stain or odors. This also can preserve your flooring longer.
Mold: The basement, laundry room, and the bathroom are where mildew and mold linger. Wash or replace affected items such as shower curtains and rugs to keep mold and mildew under control. Any questions about mold, contact Peak Construction, the professionals to help you prevent the spread of mold.
The Heart of The Home – Kitchen: Remove the shelves and drawers from the refrigerator and freezer and don’t forget the ice bucket! Clean the oven and don’t forget vacuuming underneath and behind the fridge.
