According to an article at glossyclean.com, “What to Consider During Spring Cleaning”
“It’s that time of year again – time to get your house ready for the warm, sunny months ahead with a little spring cleaning. However, as is the case with many things, spring house cleaning goes a lot more smoothly when you have a really good plan in place right from the get-go. Keep the following expert tips in mind while you go about yours. Your home will be magazine perfect in no time flat!
Cut Down on Clutter
Start by eliminating clutter on a systematic, room-to-room basis first. Put objects and tools away in their designated places if they have them. You may also find it helpful to pick up some additional storage containers before you begin to help you easily relocate specific items. Designate one container for items that will be going into the garage, one for items you plan on donating, and one for items you’re planning on taking to the dump altogether.
Make Your Windows Sparkle
Everyone knows that spring means it’s time to catch up on your window washing. However, beautiful, sunny days can make it harder than it has to be. Make things easier on yourself by choosing a cloudy, cool day to do yours. Otherwise, the sun might dry your cleaning solution too quickly, leaving unsightly streaks and spots.
Don’t forget your window treatments either! Most drapes and curtains won’t have gotten dirty enough to necessitate a full laundering. Try giving them a quick cleaning with the upholstery attachment on your vacuum instead to remove dust. Looking to freshen up sheer curtains? Try tossing them in the dryer with a softener sheet on a low setting to do the same job.
Give Carpets a Little TLC
If your carpets are under warranty, then you’ll want to make sure yours doesn’t require you to leave your deep cleaning to the professionals. If it doesn’t, then definitely save a buck or two by renting a deep cleaner and doing it yourself. Make sure you use stain-specific, dedicated cleaners to treat especially tough spots before you get started. Your carpet will be springtime fresh in no time flat!” To read the entire article click here.
