Across the country, millions of households are prepping for spring. This is basically the “sweet spot” of the year when the cold weather is gone and the hot weather hasn’t quite arrived. That makes it the perfect time to roll up your sleeves and clean up your home prior to enlisting professional house cleaning.
Cleaning and organizing will definitely take some effort on your part and we’d like to help you get started. That’s why we’ve compiled some of our favorite spring cleaning tips!
Always Use Microfiber Cloths
Dust will always be a big part of house cleaning, but it’s important that you avoid the use of feather dusters because they have a tendency to spread dust around, rather than collecting it. Microfiber cloths, on the other hand, have an electromagnetic charge that will attract and capture the dust, preventing it from getting back into your air.
Routinely Replace Filters
Your HVAC system’s filter captures dust and other types of debris and stops these contaminants from being recirculated into the air. By checking the filter once per month and changing it as needed, you’ll reduce the number of particulates present in your home.
De-Clutter Every Room
Even if you are a relatively tidy person, house cleaning will often begin with the removal of clutter around your home. This is an excellent place to start because it will remove objects where dust has settled while also giving you easier access to areas where dust and debris are hiding, making it easier to clean. Also, don’t forget smaller areas such as closets.
Think About the Environment
Professional home cleaning services always consider the effects of toxic chemicals on the environment and so should you. There are a wide variety of cleaning products that are friendly to the environment that will not only make your home spic-and-span but won’t irritate people who suffer from asthma, allergies, and other breathing issues.
Choose a HEPA Vacuum Cleaner
If you’re not in the position to replace your carpeted floor with wood or tile, then you should definitely invest in a vacuum cleaner that uses a HEPA filter. A high-efficiency particulate air filter will remove the majority of particles and contaminants in your air, which will help keep your home clean and ensure the health of everyone in your household.
Use a Whole-House Purifier
There are two types of air purifiers that will help keep your home clean. The first are portable devices that you can move from room to room or leave in a room that is typically occupied by household members. The second option is to install a whole-house purifier that will clean your entire home. Just keep in mind that even though the latter system works much better, it is more expensive.
Thoroughly Clean Trash Cans
It’s probably a no-brainer that your trash cans should be washed during spring cleaning, but we bet a lot of people reading this right now have just realized that they often forget. After all, that’s where trash goes and the trash gets taken out, so there’s nothing left, right? The truth is that bags often leak, which means that the bottom might just be the source of germs and that mysterious odor in the kitchen.
Don’t Forget Your Ceiling Fans
Ceiling fans are something else that people often forget because the dust isn’t within their eyeline. Anyone who’s ever wiped off a ceiling fan will tell you that dust quickly accumulates. Since this dust gets scattered around the room whenever the fan is turned on, it’s definitely time to grab a microfiber cloth and clean it up!
