The Spring season is here, and just how well prepared are you to keep you home clean, healthier and safer for you and your family to live in. Cleanliness is paramount for healthy living. For example, clean carpets provide a safe ground for your kids to play on without the worry of sniffing harmful dust or dirt particles. The following are cleaning tips to get your home in shape ready for spring. However, always remember that if you need some thorough cleaning in your house, professional cleaning services are only a call away!

1. Clean in an Organized Manner

It is not logical to clean your floor and then dust the ceiling fan afterwards; depositing a grey film over everything again. To clean well, meaning healthily, you need a systematic approach that will help you clean the house effectively. Begin with the ceilings, head to the walls, and then work your way down to the furniture before finishing with the floors.

2. Clean carpets and Upholstery

By the end of the winter season, it is typical that fabrics have absorbed a winter’s worth of dirt, body oil, and germs that will need some deep cleaning to get them ready for Spring. When you are shampooing your carpets or cleaning upholstery, it is important to note if any of the products has some cleaning specifications from the manufacturer. You do not want to find your fabrics discolored or bleached by a cleaning agent you used innocently. Unless you are completely certain of the effectiveness of a particular cleaning detergent, consult first. Hiring a professional to handle the cleaning process relives you of all the stress and worries of what is right and not.

A professional will also offer you sanitization of your carpets and upholstery to reduce the unhealthy bacteria that may have collected in them.

3. Thoroughly dust your house

You will need to thoroughly dust your home while cleaning and replacing the air conditioning systems and heating filters. Clean all the air ducts and vents to minimize the risk of exposure to pollens and other airborne allergens.

4. Clean all mildew and mold from bathrooms and other damp areas of the house

Mold is a fungus that is known to cause allergic reactions to many people. Clean these dumpy areas with non-toxic cleaning products. Make sure that laundry rooms, kitchens, and bathrooms are completely free of any unhealthy mold.

5. Clean your Drains the Non-toxic way

Chemical drain cleaners are excessively corrosive and dangerous. They contain toxic ingredients such as lyre or sulphuric acid whose vapors are equally harmful. Instead of using these drain cleaners, simply pour a basin of boiling water or toss a handful of bicarbonate together with 125ml of vinegar down the drain weekly.

6. Disinfect your Chopping board

This may look silly and negligible but trust me it’s not! Research shows that there 200 times more faecal bacteria on the average chopping board than on the toilet seat. Clean it by spraying with straight 5% vinegar and let it set overnight. Alternatively, swab it with alcohol.

Celebrate the warm weather this Spring with a peace of mind. With your home clean, safe, and healthier to live in, you can enjoy the warmth of the season in a relaxed state. Remember, Doiggs Cleaning professionals are here to offer you advice and exceptional cleaning service any time, any day!
