It’s never too late in the year to do a little spring cleaning. These tips will help you get it done effectively and effortlessly.
Cleaning Equipment & Consumables
Make sure that you have the appropriate equipment and cleaning consumables handy before you start your clean. Using the wrong cleaning products and appliances can end up causing more harm than good, especially where harmful chemicals and your furniture and walls are concerned. Rather than talking about the damage – talk about how using the wrong things can take so much longer.
Take care, when moving free standing ovens, not to scratch the floor. These types of ovens can be gently slid out so that you can get in behind them and clean properly. Always use an approved oven cleaner for cleaning the oven, and take care not to leave the solution on the oven for too long, lest it gets damaged.
Use non-abrasive cleaners and soft cloths or scrubbers. When using a new cleaning product?, take care to test it out on an isolated spot in the shower first, to ensure that it is both effective and not harmful to the shower should we not say tile? Harmful to shower sounds funny.
Carpets & Upholstery
Following the cleaning of carpets and upholstery, always leave a windows open to facilitate air flow that will dry the fabrics out, even if they don’t feel wet afterwards. Take care not to use too much water, and only use gentle cleaning products on carpets and upholstery.
Curtains and Drapes
Curtains can be removed and washed in a tub or even in the washing machine, depending on the material they are made from. Blinds should be gently wiped down with water and a damp cloth; (just now they soak it in the bath. If you find any mould or mildew on your curtains, remove them and have them cleaned immediately, to prevent these pathogens from spreading throughout your indoor spaces.
