How excited are you that it is finally spring? This means it is time to get busy in your garden and cleaning your home. Even if you do a good job with regular cleaning, your spring cleaning sessions are the time when you know you’re going to step up your game. It is time to go much deeper with the cleaning throughout the entire home. Whether you try to get your spring cleaning done in a single day or spread it out over a few weekends, you’ll want to put this checklist to work:
Make Doormats Welcoming
Your front door mat is the first line of defense against keeping dirt and grime out of your home. It might not work so well if that actual doormat is caked with the grime. You want to pull that mat off the porch and give it a good shake. Hosing it down is also recommended.
Clean Carpets and Upholstery
The furniture fabrics can carpets in your home might look clean on the surface but deep down tells another tale. There can be all kinds of dirt, oils and dust mites buried in your sofas, chairs and rugs. Instead of merely vacuuming, spring cleaning should be for shampooing. Most grocery stores have shampoo cleaners that you can rent for the weekend. This is a bit labor intensive and will mean you need to stay off those areas until they are dry but you’ll feel a lot better sitting on freshly shampooed furniture.
Reseal Your Floors
Any floor that doesn’t have a rug or carpeting on it should be resealed during spring cleaning. If you can contact the people who put in the floors, then they might be able to recommend the best polish for this task. Just remember that certain floors are actually no-wax floors. Before any resealing, be sure to mop everything to make sure you’re not trapping dust.
Wash Walls, Cabinets and Baseboards
The walls, cabinets and baseboards are more areas in your home that might look clean but really aren’t. It only takes one swipe with a sponge to reveal the dust culprit. As you make your way along the walls and baseboards, you should have two buckets: one for the soap and the other for wringing out the dirt.
Get Rid of Rubbish
There will be a lot of things going into the trash during spring cleaning but what about the stuff you can’t fit in the trash? Instead of cleaning around furniture you don’t want, you should let Junk King Phoenix take it away. Every junk removal session is handled by two movers. That’s all you need to get rid of all kinds of unwanted stuff from your home. The first item on your spring cleaning checklist should be a junk clearing session with Junk King Phoenix.
