The words “Spring Cleaning” sometimes can strike fear into the minds of lots of people. Memories of Mom and Dad waking you up early on a Saturday for a day full of cleaning aren’t exactly the most motivating things to remember as an adult. But in our opinion at Premiere Roofing Services, Spring Cleaning gets a bad rap. There’s nothing like coming home on a perfect day to a sparkling clean home on the inside and on the outside. Here are 4 tips for quick and easy Spring cleaning that will last all year.
- Organize Using Bins
It may seem simple, but using small bins to separate and control the clutter that builds up in your home over the winter can make a huge difference. Small baskets and drawers are inexpensive, and make it easy to stow away those random knick-knacks that always seem to find their way onto your coffee table or kitchen counter.
- Wash The OUTSIDE of Your Windows
Washing the windows can make a big difference. Doing this can not only improve the way other people see your house, it can improve your own opinion of it! But here’s a tip to take your window washing to the next level: wash the outsides too! Rain, wildlife, dust, and normal wear & tear can make your windows much dirtier than you’d expect. For those pesky second and third floor windows, using a pressure washer with streak-free soap can make washing your windows easy and fun.
- Vacuum Your Mattress
We spend almost a third of our lives sleeping. That’s a HUGE chunk! This means your mattress is full of bacteria, dead skin cells, and even microscopic insects (gross). Running over your mattress with a handheld vacuum is quick and easy, and can instantly improve the quality of your sleep. Imagine crawling into bed with freshly cleaned sheets AND a freshly cleaned mattress. Bliss.
- Wax The Floors
Sometimes, mopping only goes so far. You can break out every trick in the book to clean your hardwood floors, but after a few hours they’re still as dull as ever. Waxing your hardwood floors once a year is a wonderful way to keep your house looking brand new. Don’t have a huge floor waxing machine? You’re not alone. Luckily, renting a floor waxer is cheap and inexpensive. Not to mention, using a floor waxer is a lot more fun than it should be (don’t be afraid to be a kid again).
Dive head first into Spring Cleaning this year unafraid and determined. Along with these 4 Spring Cleaning Tips, make sure to inspect your siding, roof, guttering system, landscaping, and driveway to make sure your home is top-notch. Making sure your home is protected on the outside is even more important than how it looks on the inside. Now get to work! Spring is almost here!
