Don’t Forget to Spring Clean These Places
The official first day of spring has come and gone, and it’s time to start thinking about spring cleaning your home. While there are many obvious places we always clean, it’s important to remember those often forgotten spots in your home. We’ve compiled a list of the most neglected spaces to pay extra attention to as you clean your home for the new season.
Windows. While it’s normal to clean the glass in windows, don’t forget about the other components. The tops of windowsills and window coverings are prone to collecting dust. Curtains can be vacuumed and washed, and blinds can be wiped down. For a deeper clean, we can take your blinds and clean them using ultrasonic technology - a great way to ensure they’re completely free of grime and other debris.
Bedding. When was the last time you cleaned your bedding? Comforters, quilts, and pillows can collect germs over time. Comforters and quilts can be taken to a laundromat if they don’t fit in your washer, and pillows can benefit from being placed in the sun for a few hours to kill any bacteria. It’s also a great idea to flip your mattress to distribute the wear over time.
Upholstery. Upholstered furniture, such as your couch or chairs, are frequently used, yet not frequently cleaned. While these pieces can be vacuumed, that doesn’t always remove the underlying buildup. Don’t forget to schedule an occasional deep clean to ensure the germs have been removed.
Baseboards. When was the last time you thoroughly dusted and cleaned your baseboards? Since baseboards are so close to the ground, they regularly collect dirt, dust and other things floating around your floor. Now is a great time to vacuum and wipe them down so they look as good as new again.
Cabinets. The tops of kitchen cabinets and your refrigerator have a tendency to collect dust and other airborne debris over time. Make sure to regularly dust and clean them to ensure nothing is unknowingly falling onto your flooring and counters (or on your food!).
