Easy Spring Cleaning Tips

Posted by:

Spring-cleaning is the practice of thoroughly cleaning a house in the springtime. The practice of spring-cleaning is especially prevalent in climates with a cold winter. In many cultures, annual cleaning occurs at the end of the year, which may be in spring or winter, depending on the calendar. The spring cleaning tips below outline basic techniques that will help you clean almost every surface (or object) in any house.

Windows

Instead of just wiping down the inside, make sure you take to the outdoors, that you do not usually have time to tackle. Using warm water and a mild dishwashing liquid scrub each window glass with a brush; rinse thoroughly.

Cabinets

Over time, build-up can collect on your kitchen cabinets — especially if you do not run the exhaust hood over your range while you cook to keep grease from settling. To remove, use cleaner to cut through the dirt and leave wood moisturized.

Upholstery Furniture

Take cushions outside and gently beat them by hand to remove dust. If there are stains, check the pieces for care labels. Use a vacuum’s upholstery and crevice tools to clean under seat cushions. For deep cleaning, take help of professionals.

Bookshelves

Take everything off the Shelves, and brush shelves and books with a feather duster. Use the dust-brush or crevice tool on a vacuum to reach into tight spots. Wipe the spines of leather-bound books with a clean, soft cloth. Sort books by size and subject. Line books, some vertically, some horizontally, in a rhythmic pattern. This will relieve the dullness of rows.

Oven

If you ever start to smell something burning when you turn on your oven, it might be time to give it a deep clean. First, chip off loose pieces from your range, and then spritz burnt-on food with ammonia. Sprinkle baking soda and a few drops of white vinegar on the bottom, let it bubble up, and then whisk away the grime with a sponge.

Mattress

The perfect time to pay attention to what is under your bedding? When your sheets being washed too. Use your vacuum’s crevice tool to clean the surface and sides, then spot-clean stains with Pet Stain and Odor Remover. Sanitize with a Disinfectant Spray afterwards.

Washing Machine

Do not wash your clothes in a smelly machine. Instead, disinfect it with distilled white vinegar and baking soda to keep it fresh and high functioning. Run the machine with hot water, then add the cleaning agents, and let it sit for 30 to 60 minutes. Afterwards, restart your machine, let the water drain, and wipe it dry.

Closet

Organizing your closet is the first step to organizing the rest of your home. Get rid of unused clothes and accessories, and organize the rest by how you get dressed in the morning and by color. Your closet will look appealing, and your everyday routine will be easier.

Refrigerator

This means the outside and inside. Pull out all of your fridge’s interior shelving and wash them with warm soapy water. Then wipe down the surfaces that can’t be removed on the inside with a sponge before putting shelves back in their place.

Area Rugs

Synthetic carpets and rugs with waterproof backings can be deep cleaned with a rotary shampoo machine and a hot-water extraction machine. Rugs without backings, including Orientals, require professional cleaning.

Walls and Ceilings

Use a vacuum to remove dust. Tackle stubborn surface grime, especially prevalent in kitchens, with a solvent-free degreaser (test it first in an inconspicuous area to ensure it will not mar the surface).

Cleaning bathroom and kitchen tiles with a cleaner that has “neutral pH” on the label. You can also mix baking soda and water for a homemade cleaner: Pour 1/2 cup baking soda into 2 gallons water and mix very well. Then apply the liquid with a string mop or sponge mop. For grout, use the same baking soda and water mixture, but for tough stains, call in the professionals.

Carpet

You are going to love this: Less-trafficked areas of your carpet only have to be cleaned once or twice a year, and every 18 months for a bedroom. For higher-traffic areas, the most often you would need to bring in professionals would be three or four times a year, although once you see that your carpet is dirty, you probably should have it cleaned for health reasons.

Wood Floors

Even though you might think you should mop your wooden floors every week, this chore could ruin them. Instead, you should only wet-clean them once every one to two months with Hardwood Floor Cleaner, and spot-clean as needed.

Countertops

The first step to preventing granite stains: Seal your countertops as soon as they are installed. You will know they are sealed properly when water beads and forms droplets on the surface. To maintain, have them sealed again a year later and make sure you wipe up accidental spills as soon as they happen.
