Save Your Floors Till Last – giving your house a clean for summer

Whether you have wooden floors, tiles, or carpets, when it comes to doing a spring clean, you should leave cleaning your flooring till last. You can have the best hard floor cleaner machine that leaves your floors spotless, but when it comes to moving furniture, ornaments, and taking everything out of the cupboards, it will cause a lot of dust, no matter how clean your home is. You should ensure that you finish off all the other tasks before you look to clean your floors so that you do not have to do them more than once.

Cleaning Your Windows

Ideally, you will want to clean your windows on a day that is overcast as direct sunlight can leave streaks on your windows. Start with the side of your house that is not in the sun and work your way through your home. There are many different cleaning products that you can use for your windows but one of the best ones is white vinegar and a soft microfiber cloth.

Give The Kitchen A Clear Out

When you go into the kitchen in many people’s homes, there is always going to be things in the cupboards that are out of date and have gone off. You should go through all your cabinets, your fridge, and your freezer, and check the use by dates on all the products. Anything that is out of date, throw it away and get rid of it. You may be surprised at how much you find to throw away, and it could also help to change your shopping habits to prevent from throwing away food in the future.

Work On One Room At A Time

Rather than try to clean all of the floors at the same time, get rid of junk at the same time, or any other cleaning tasks. You should start with one room in your home and do all of the cleaning tasks in it before you move onto the next room in your home. Doing this will mean you can breakdown the task into manageable bits and will make it much easier going for you.
