The spring is about to start, and when the house owners come to know about cleaning the house, apartment or flat they feel really uncomfortable. Sometimes it becomes troublesome for them. However, if you love a place and want to see it neat and clean, you will have to spend a small portion of your time on cleaning.
We have listed ten useful tips on how to successfully clean houses in the spring. Let’s have a look at them.
- Work Down
You have to divide the whole spring cleaning into simple and easy steps so that you may work with ease and comfort. You can’t simply clean the house in one go. Start cleaning from top and move down. The simple steps may involve tidying, dusting, cleaning, vacuuming and washing the necessary things.
You will have a lot of junk in the house if you have not disposed it off in the last few weeks. So pay attention to that. Separate the useful and those objects that can be recycled. You may submit the useful things like clothes, toys or teddy bear in the nearby charity office.
- Clean Curtains
Curtains need attention because if you don’t pay attention to them for long, they may be damaged. Try to clean them once a year. Remove the hooks, take them out and clean in the best possible way. If they need washing, don’t forget that as well.
- Thorough Clean
The carpets and floor need detailed and deep cleaning at least thrice a year. You may do it and if you are not comfortable with cleaning and washing, you go for a cleaner or buy the carpet-cleaning machine. This deep cleaning will refresh the house, bedrooms and they will present a new look to the visitors.
- Invigorate Lights
The lights, lamps and other things about electricity may be covered with shades, dust and dirt. Remove them with care, separate the removable parts, if any, and wash them with ordinary dish washing soap. After drying, put them in their places.
- Don’t forget Mattress
Your mattress gets dirty with time, and it may have a lot of dust. So don’t forget to use a low pressure vacuum on them. Cleaning of the mattress will be fine after every three to four months. Bright them up before they get too dirty.
- Renew Beds
Your beds, sheets, quilts, duvets and pillows also need cleaning and proper washing. If you have already done this, that’s fine and you may do with ease. Otherwise, you should go to a professional cleaner.
- Clean Furniture
Furniture is an important part of every house. With time, the furniture gets all dusty, if not taken care of. The covers of upholstery should be dry-cleaned or washed if needed.
- Protect Yourself
When you do detailed spring cleaning, don’t forget to put on gloves and cover yourself to be safe from germs, dust and other infections.
- Share the Burden
It might be quite difficult for you to do all this alone, so ask someone to assist you and share your burden. If you get a help, it will get easier to perform and all the cleaning will be done in lesser time.
