Spring may almost be over, but it isn’t too late to start thinking about spring cleaning your home. After all, when summer does get here, you’re hardly going to want to spend those hot, humid days deep cleaning your home.
If you want to freshen up your home and make it look and feel cleaner right now, here are some of the most effective things you can do:
Clean the Windows
The sun is shining, so why not take advantage of it by giving yourself a crystal clear view of its golden rays and the blue sky beyond? The best way to get your windows sparkling is to mix white vinegar with equal amounts of water. Pour the mixture into a spray bottle, apply to your windows and wipe.
Clear Out the Clutter
Now is the perfect time to take stock of your stuff. Most of us have way more stuff than we really need and a lot more stuff than we actually use. By cleaning out this clutter, we can create more space, minimize our dusting and cleaning duties and ensure that our property feels fresher than before.
Retouch the Walls
If the paint in your living room is starting to peel or the color of your kitchen walls has dulled since you first painted them, put on your coveralls and apply a fresh new coat to breathe a new lease of life into your home.
Clean the Carpet
If your home is carpeted, over the months, it will begin to collect all manner of dirt, grime and spring/summer allergens, which will leave it looking, smelling and feeling less than fresh, and posing a possible health risk. That’s why it’s the perfect time to call City Wide Chem-Dry and have a professional clean your carpet. They will be able to lift dirt and grime better than you can, no matter how often you vacuum or how hard you try, leaving your carpet looking as good as new for a fraction of the price!
Replace the Fixtures and Fittings
If you’re looking for an affordable way to freshen up your home’s look ahead of the summer, replacing old door knobs, cabinets and mirrors is a great way to do so that will make a surprisingly big difference.
Pick Up Some Plants
What could be fresher and more attractive than beautiful green plants and vibrant, bold flowers? Not much. Add a flourish of plants and flowers to your window sills, corners and cabinets and the room will not only feel fresher but the air you breathe will actually be fresher too!
Wax and Polish
If your furniture is looking a little worse for wear, a simple wax and polish will have it looking as good as new in no time at all. If your furniture features fabrics, covering it with baking soda and leaving it for a few minutes before vacuuming can get rid of unpleasant odors and improves the appearance of the material.
