If you’re like most people, then you’re probably growing tired of the snow and cold. Thankfully, spring is right around the corner. That means now is the perfect time to roll up your sleeves and get some cleaning done to welcome in the warmer weather.
At Minch Professional Cleaning Services, LLC, we help both residential and commercial customers by providing a full line of cleaning services for any budget. We know that our customers lead busy lives but still want to enjoy a fresh, clean home. That’s why we’ve got a few spring cleaning tips to help you prepare for the new season:
1. Clean the carpets.
One of the best ways to get a jumpstart on your spring cleaning is by starting with your carpets. Most carpets absorb their fair share of dirt, germs, and dander in the course of a year. A deep cleaning is the best way to ensure that they’re ready for another season of wear.
You can make shampooing or cleaning upholstery easy by renting a carpet cleaner. Move all of the furniture just slightly and place some wax paper under the legs of chairs and couches. This will ensure that the carpet is protected and that the legs don’t get wet. If you don’t want to rent an industrial carpet cleaner, you can still get your carpets fresh and clean using a store-bought carpet shampoo.
2. Wipe the walls and woodwork.
Another great way to clean for spring is by giving your walls and woodwork some attention. Even surfaces that don’t necessarily look grimy will most likely have their share of dust and dirt embedded into them.
Use a sponge and a non-toxic cleaner, such as vinegar and water, to wipe down any large surface areas. You can use two buckets to make it easier. Fill one with the cleaning solution and use the other bucket to wring out your sponge.
3. Don’t forget the fixtures.
Cleaning your fixtures will add brightness to your space. All you need is a small stepladder, some non-toxic cleaning supplies, and a sponge. Carefully wipe down all fixtures, such as skylights and tall ceilings, that are reachable on your step ladder. Dry them with a clean cloth.
You can make the task easier with an extended dust removal tool if you’re feeling ambitious. Remember to remove dust and dirt from any ceiling fans that you might have, as well. A vacuum attachment usually does the trick.
