As the cold fades away and warmer weather moves in, it’s time to start thinking about spring cleaning. Every home can benefit from a good deep clean this time of year, especially if you suffer from seasonal allergies.
Give your family and yourself a fresh start with our best deep cleaning tips below.
Deep cleaning and organizing your home all at once can be overwhelming, so we recommend mapping out a schedule and list of tasks before you get started. Pay special attention to areas you miss in your routine cleanings, like your home office and laundry room.
Clutter and disorganization can add unnecessary stress and chaos to your life. Before grabbing a mop or sponge, take time to declutter your home.
Throw away trash, expired food and cosmetics, and broken items that cannot be repaired. Organize closets by donating clothes that no longer fit and other items you don’t want or need to keep.
Use this opportunity to deep clean the most used areas of your home, like your kitchen and bathrooms:
Don’t forget about your walls, windows, blinds, and curtains. Use a damp towel to remove dust from hard surfaces and wash fabric window treatments according to manufacturer guidelines.
You should also dust ceilings, fans, and light fixtures, working top to bottom, so you don’t dirty recently cleaned surfaces.
When cleaning your home, don’t forget about your indoor air quality. Eliminate dust, mold, allergens, and pet dander by changing your air and vacuum filters.
Choose an HVAC filter with a high MERV rating and a high-quality HEPA filter for your vacuum.
