As spring approaches, homeowners are preparing for annual spring cleaning to refresh their homes. However, many people forget about a few vital things to do during spring cleanings like dusting the blinds, getting a carpet cleaning in Signal Hill, and more. So this season, don’t neglect the things on this list!
1. Clean Behind Appliances
Over time, crumbs, grease, and other unwanted particles accumulate behind and underneath your stove, refrigerator, and other appliances, providing a food source for insects. If possible, move the appliance out from the wall and unplug it. Using a long-handled, slightly damp sponge, mop the back of the appliance to lift dust from the surface and then wipe the floor and walls with hot soapy water.
2. Dust Blinds
Window curtains and blinds collect dust and dirt easily. Remove dust build-up by shutting blinds and dusting with a microfiber cloth. Next, close blinds in the opposite direction for a quick, thorough wipe-down using a non-toxic window cleaner and clean cloth.
3. Vacuum Mattress
Mattresses are a dust mite’s paradise as people sweat up to a half-pint of moisture each night and shed up to nine pounds of skin each year while they sleep, so make sure you clean it this spring! Vacuum the mattress thoroughly and turn it over. Ideally, your mattress should be vacuumed at least once a month and turned over every six months.
4. Clean Carpets and Upholstery
Carpets and upholstery pick up everything from pet urine to toenails. Dust and dirt hiding in carpet fibers are not cleaned by vacuuming alone and should be cleaned by a professional three times a year. Our healthier, drier carpet cleaning in Signal Hill, CA is your best bet when it comes to removing dirt and dust from your home this spring!
