Spring is upon us…Life is starting again! Flowers are in bloom, the days are longer, outdoor temperatures are perfect…With so much energy and excitement in the air after a gloomy winter, it’s the perfect time for your home to be deep cleaned. Below are recommendations Fabulous Cleaning Services suggests when it’s time for Spring cleaning.
Clean windows in and out
The purpose of windows is to bring light in and to give us nice, unobstructed views of the outdoor. When Spring is here, being able to enjoy the outdoor from the comfort of your home is a must. You should arrange for your windows to be cleaned inside and out, especially with the pollen season upon us. Doing so will bring more life in your home and beautiful views of your yard. You should have your window screens cleaned since they have accumulated dirt during the winter and now pollen from the early Spring.
Thoroughly dust your entire home
Most likely, the heat in your home has been running during the cold months and dust has accumulated in hard to reach places in your home. With the pollen season about to start, it’s a good idea to have your home dusted thoroughly. Dust accumulates especially in hard to reach places like on top of ceiling fans, window casings, and tall furniture. Keeping up with dusting, especially at the beginning of the Spring will make your home look and feel super clean and keep allergens away.
Freshen up window treatment
Curtains and draperies don’t usually get dirty, but they do get dusty, especially after a long winter season when the heat has been on, blowing warm air non-stop. Going over your curtains and draperies with an upholstery attachment is best to remove dust. TIP: to remove dust from sheer curtains, put your curtains in the dryer on low – important – with a fabric-softener sheet.
Aerate your home
Early Spring in Charlotte is usually very pleasant. Open your windows and aerate your home. Rotate your bed mattress, change your blankets, open your bathroom window(s) and bring in the fresh air to invigorate your home and freshen it up.
Clean under furniture and appliances
Spring cleaning is your opportunity to clean those places where unwanted dirt accumulates – underneath appliances (stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, washer and dryer) and underneath furniture. This deep cleaning could be done at any time of the year, but in the spirit of freshen up your home, why not do it during your annual Spring cleaning.
Deep clean your kitchen
A change of season means a change of routine in the kitchen. Take this time to deep clean your kitchen including cleaning inside your kitchen cabinets and get it rid of what you don’t need anymore. Empty your fridge and freezer so you can deep clean them. You will be using a lot more fresh produce in your cooking in the Spring and Summer than you did in the Fall and Winter. Disinfecting the inside of your fridge and freezer will go a long way and you’ll like how clean your fridge is. You should also clean the coils behind your fridge, as well as the stove inside and out.
De-clutter your home
Use some that excess energy you have in the Spring to declutter your home. Review what you need and don’t need anymore. A cluttered home can deplete your energy, whereas an organized home will give you plenty of energy. For tips on de-cluttering, read our blog on de-cluttering your home.
