Spring is the time when most people stop to clean around the home in a thorough way, before summer starts. This tradition gives you an excuse to do some cleaning tasks that you might have been ignoring over the winter. A few tips for spring cleaning can make everything easier and leave your home spotless.
Use Squeegees and Dishwashing Liquid to Clean Windows
Get a squeegee for your windows. These tools are incredibly useful and make getting a streak free window as simple as possible. Mix some dishwashing liquid with warm water. Wipe down the window first and then wet the squeegee with the mixture. Use the squeegee in long and even strokes to remove dirt and make the window perfectly clean.
Carefully Clean Your Lampshades, Lighting Fixtures, and Light Bulbs
Use a soft duster, a slightly damp microfiber cloth, and a handheld vacuum to clean your lampshades, lighting fixtures, and light bulbs. The vacuum can be used to clean the lamp shades, along with a duster. The microfiber cloth should be used to wipe down all the light bulbs carefully. The cloth and duster are both good for getting your lighting fixtures as clean as possible.
Your carpets can become filled with dust, allergens, and debris over the course of the fall and winter. Spring cleaning should involve steaming your carpets and rugs. You can rent a steam cleaner or hire a professional service. Steam cleaning kills bacteria and allergens. It can destroy carpet odors and remove some stains. Steam cleaning the carpets should always be a part of your spring cleaning routine.
Work In Just One Room at a Time
A final tip is to work in just one room at a time when doing your spring cleaning. Do not move from room to room doing small tasks. Stay in one room and work until all the cleaning is done. This will keep you focused and prevent you from forgetting things. It also lets you work faster because all your cleaning supplies will be in just one room.
