Although there is still cold temps, according to the calendar, spring has officially sprung. It won’t be long now before you can throw open the windows and let the fresh air in. It’s also the perfect time to get you house cleaned from top to bottom. Spring cleaning is all about taking those extra steps to make sure your house sparkles and shines. Here are some helpful spring cleaning tips you can add to your checklist:
Protecting Furniture and Carpets
Are your carpets and furniture protected? Sealants like Scotchguard and Utra-Guard can go a long way towards beading up spills. It keeps them from seeping into the fibers and fabrics. These protectors can also help with fading and prevent mold and mildew. Before you spray, do a deep cleaning of your upholstery and carpets. Then seal it all up!
Clean Your Oven the Old School Way
Of all the spring cleaning tasks, cleaning your oven is probably the most challenging. There are a lot of “quick” methods that involve abrasive chemical sprays. These always seem to give off noxious fumes. They also make a horrible mess. The best way to clean is the old school way: Use a wet pumice stone to scrape off dirt and grease then wipe down with a wet towel.
Do Quick Touch-Ups
Once you get your home clean, you should get into the habit of quick touch-ups. A few minutes of spot cleaning every other day can sustain all that hard work you did cleaning. Build yourself a spot-cleaning kit that includes micro-cloths, cleaning pads and dry sweeper clothes. These can all be use for fast removal of fingerprints on the wall, dust in the corners and grime everywhere else. The key is to clean when you see it instead of waiting.

A team of hard working movers will be dispatched to your home to efficiently remove all those designated items.
