Spring is just around the corner and we all know what’s amazing about warmer seasons. We all love it when the sun is out and we hear the singing of the birds, not to mention the moments we get to enjoy both indoors and outdoors, whether it is barbecuing, swimming or any other activity. Spring, however, makes it an excellent time to clean your home, declutter and have everything looking like it is brand new, making it ready for the summer. You may want to get help from professionals such as commercial cleaning services in Hampshire. First, though, here are a few cleaning tips to beautify your home.
Under the Bed
‘Out of sight, out of mind’ is a pretty common phrase and there’s no better place where it applies than under the bed. We shove things in this region by accident, or to put them out of the way temporarily. However, it does not take long to lose track and the pile of stuff under the bed gets bigger and bigger. This ultimately creates a breeding ground for germs and dust and can cause a serious issue to anyone with respiratory problems. So, instead of shoving things under your bed, you may want to take the time to sort out the clutter and get rid of things that you do not use or need. If there is something that you are not ready to part with, you may want to look for another storage space like the garage or rent a storage unit.
Fridge and Freezer
How often do you clean your fridge or freezer? Unless you count getting rid of old food or rinsing the drawers every now and then, probably not very often. This is something that most of us a guilty of, but it can be pretty dangerous due to the sickness it can cause. You should take time to thoroughly clean your fridge or freezer, ensuring that you remove all shelves and deep clean them. Once everything is clean, you’ll want to ensure that you wipe it on a regular basis and clean after every 2 to 3 months.
Most individuals remember that the exterior of cupboards needs to be cleaned, but forget that the inside requires similar attention. The interior of cupboards can become really grimy with time and while you may clean those where you keep food, there are many in your household that will become cluttered over time. For example, the cupboard under the sink is usually used to store cleaning products, but it’s usually the most disorganised.
When did you last pay attention to your bins, other than disposing of garbage? We all like to avoid this job, but as much as we dislike it, it is imperative to keep bins clean to prevent mould from growing and disease-causing micro-organisms from developing. You may use bin bags in order to protect leaks from happening, but they still get dirty and can leave your house smelling bad. They often attract flies and other undesirable creatures which spread germs around your house. With this in mind, you’ll want to get your bins out and soak them with hot water. Once the water has cooled down and the bins have been out for several hours, empty them completely and give them a good scrub. Ensure you finish up with a scented spray, leaving them sparkling clean.
Now that you’ve organised everything and your house is clean, the next thing is to handle your storage. While sorting out everything, you obviously came across things that you have not used in months or years, or probably do not need them on a daily basis. This is where self-storage solutions come in handy. Keeping items that you do not use on a regular basis on a rental storage container will ensure that your home is spacious and free of clutter. All you have to do is research a few solutions and pick one that meets your space and accessibility needs.
If you have a mould problem, it’s best to take care of the situation as soon as possible. With time, mould can weaken drywall and even wood! Unfortunately these materials are costly if they need replacing quickly because there is no other alternative but to replace them with new ones from scratch.
