Spring is finally here! The weather is getting warmer, the sun is shining, and it's the perfect time to give your home a good clean. But where do you start? Don't worry, A Cleaning Service is here to help. We've put together our top tips for spring cleaning your home, so you can get your house looking and feeling fresh in no time.
Make a plan.
The first step to successful spring cleaning is to make a plan. It might seem obvious, but creating a checklist of all the areas you want to clean and the tasks you need to complete will help you stay organised and ensure that you don't forget anything, as well as giving you a satisfied feeling when you tick off a task. It's also a good idea to set a timeframe for each task, so you can stay on track.
Before you start cleaning, take some time to declutter your home. Go through your closets, drawers, and other storage areas and get rid of or donate anything to friends, family, or charity you no longer need or want. This will not only make cleaning easier, but it will also make your home feel more spacious and organised.
Clean from top to bottom.
When it comes to cleaning, always start at the top and work your way down. This means dusting ceiling fans, light fixtures, and the tops of cabinets before moving on to lower surfaces. This will prevent dust and dirt from falling on already cleaned areas and ruing your hard work!
Use the right tools.
Make sure you have the right tools for the job. This includes a vacuum cleaner with attachments for cleaning upholstery and hard-to-reach areas, a mop or steam cleaner for floors, and a range of cleaning products for different surfaces. We always recommend using natural products as choosing eco-friendly cleaning services, homeowners can enjoy the benefits of deep cleaning their homes without exposing themselves, their loved ones, or pets to harmful chemicals.
Focus on high-traffic areas.
Pay extra attention to high-traffic areas such as entryways, kitchens, and bathrooms. These areas tend to accumulate the most dirt and grime, so they may need more attention than other areas of your home and a little more elbow grease.
Don't forget the windows!
Spring is the perfect time to clean your windows and let in some natural light. Use a window cleaner and a squeegee or microfibre cloth to get your windows sparkling clean. We recommend working from the top down so you can avoid getting that streaky finish.
Freshen up soft furnishings.
Don't forget to freshen up your soft furnishings such as curtains, cushions, and throws. These items can collect dust and odours, as well as potential allergens so give them a good clean or consider having them professionally cleaned. We use a high-powered extraction method to really penetrate the material removing any stain, dust or dirt, as well as sanitising and deodorising the upholstery material too.
Deep clean your carpets
Carpets can harbour dirt, dust, and allergens, so it's important to give them a deep clean. You can hire a professional carpet cleaner (our systems are specifically designed to provide a deep clean of the carpets, no matter what type of fibre they are and even dry within 30 minutes ), or you can rent a machine and do it yourself.
Tackle the kitchen.
The kitchen is one of the most important areas to clean during spring cleaning. Clean the oven (read our blog on oven cleaning myths here), microwave, and refrigerator, and organise your pantry and cabinets. Don't forget to clean the sink and countertops too (scrub your sink with a sponge or brush and dish soap. If your sink is stainless steel, you can also use a mixture of baking soda and water to remove any stains.)
Finish with the bathroom
Last but not least, give your bathroom a thorough clean. Clean the toilet, sink, shower, and bathtub, and replace any old or worn-out towels and bathmats. Again, remember to consider using a natural cleaning product to avoid harsh chemicals in this sensitive area.
