Specialists advise that you get your household thoroughly and completely cleaned at least twice a year. But this is a much harder task than it sounds. There are many factors you have to consider and prepare for if you want your spring cleaning to have any (positive) effect.
The first thing you can do is to check out who the local professional cleaners are. Hiring a cleaning company like Carpet Cleaning Orpington once or twice a year would not be that expensive, and you can be sure that the job is going to be carried out properly and up to the most satisfactory results.
Of course, there could be many reasons you might want to tackle the task on your own. In that case, you will have to prepare by gathering all the necessary tools – cleaning products, towels, rugs, a ladder, a vacuum cleaner etc. Make a list of the things you are going to need, as well as those that need to get done so that you do not miss anything.
Your home cleaning is going to be more or less complete when you have gone through every single one of the rooms in your house. It is preferable not to leave a room before you have finished cleaning everything in it. This means that you should not, for instance, vacuum the whole house at once. Vacuum the living room first, then proceed to de-cluttering, cleaning the upholstery, windows, light fixtures etc. Then you can move on to the next area in your home.
Spring cleaning is the time when you have to do things you do not usually do on a regular cleaning day. This includes such tasks as washing baseboards, door ceilings, window sills, all doors and walls in your home. Check out all vents in your household – vacuum and clean them carefully in order to refresh the air in your home. In the kitchen, move the fridge, vacuum and clean underneath it – doing this at least twice a year will make miracles with your home’s hygiene. Another thing to do is to go through all the items that have accumulated in your home for the past year. Decide what you are going to use in the future and dispose of everything unnecessary – you can sell it online, give it away, throw it in the trash or recycle it. Just get rid of the useless possessions and reduce the clutter in your home.
