Is spring cleaning still a “thing?” Actually, it is. Many people are motivated by the renewing feeling of spring to deep clean their homes and get rid of the dust, dirt, and mud brought on by winter. If you’re planning on tackling some spring cleaning, here are some areas you should focus on…
Air Ducts: Cleaning your air ducts can help you create a cleaner living environment, improve the air quality in your home, and reduce allergens. But this is not a DIY job. Be sure to hire a trusted duct cleaner that will give your system the attention it needs.
Appliances: Your oven may have a self-cleaning function. Same with your washer. Spring is a great time to use these settings to thoroughly clean these appliances that you use often. You may also want to clean out your refrigerator and wipe down all the shelves and drawers with warm, soapy water. And if your self-cleaning functions on your appliances don't work (or any other functions, for that matter), be sure to contact one of our skilled appliance repair companies.
High-touch areas: Light switches, stair railings, doorknobs, and cabinet hardware get touched daily, but they are often overlooked during regular cleanings. During your spring cleaning, wipe these down with your favorite germ-killing cleaner.
Carpets: With all the dirt and snow that gets tracked in, Colorado winters can be tough on our floors, especially our carpets. Hire an experienced carpet cleaner this spring to get your carpets back in tip-top shape.
Kid Toys: As much as we love our little ones, there’s no denying that their hands spread a lot of germs, which is why you should consider cleaning their toys at least once a year. Did you know you can wash their plastic toys in the dishwasher? Just be sure to use a quick cycle and turn off the “heated dry” setting.
