5 Tips to Deep Cleaning Your Home
Deep Clean Your Home with These 5 Tips
Cleaning your home is an important weekly chore, wiping down surfaces, cleaning the floors, scrubbing down the bathroom are all necessary when keeping and maintaining a tidy home. However, there are certain areas of a home that even the most cleanliest of people forget about. These areas are easily overlooked for many reasons, either because they’re out of reach or just blend into a room and go unnoticed.
Take a look at these five deep cleaning tips for the forgotten cleaning spots in your home:
A simple way to remove any dust from your blinds is to spray all purpose cleaner onto a dry cloth. Use your thumb and forefinger and pinch one blind, run your fingers across the length of the blind and repeat for each one. You may have to go back over once more to remove any leftover dust or dirt. This may not be a weekly cleaning chore, but you should clean your blinds at least once a month, especially if you keep your windows open.
Your air ducts collect not only dust, but cobwebs, hair, and whatever else spreads throughout your home. So let’s just say they’re not the cleanest of things. To clean them, turn off your HVAC unit and unscrew the covers, then vacuum the ducts and wipe them down with a disinfectant. To extend the life of your HVAC unit and maintain healthy air quality, you should regularly wipe them down and change the filters.
If you’ve ever turned on your ceiling fan, and saw dust fly off, then it’s way overdue for a cleaning. To clean a ceiling fan, grab a step stool or small ladder and wipe the blades with a rag. Repeat this step with a new rag that has been sprayed with an all purpose cleaner. This may seem like a hassle to do frequently, but in order to keep dust from getting redistributed into the air, you should clean your ceiling fans weekly.
Baseboards are some of the most overlooked features in a home, but the fact of the matter is baseboards are just as susceptible to dust, dirt, and grime as floors. Keep your baseboards clean by vacuuming or sweeping away dirt and dust. Once you’ve removed any dirt and dust, use a sponge with warm water and soap to remove any stuck on stains.
Doorknobs, Handles and Light Switches
Opening doors and turning light switches on and off is part of our daily routine, however when it comes to cleaning these elements they tend to get overlooked. In order to fight off germs that spread on these areas, use an anti-bacterial cleaner to disinfect them. Spray cleaner onto a cloth or paper towel, then wipe down any light fixtures in your home, do the same for light switches and door knobs. You should regularly clean all the doorknobs and handles in your home to prevent germs from spreading.
