Depending on where you live this year you may have likely experienced your share of extreme weather, some of the polar vortex, ice storms, freezing rain or record-breaking snow falls. But cheer up! Spring is almost here and so are longer and warmer days.
The official first day of Spring this year is on Tuesday, March 20 but planning for Spring Cleaning should start right about now.
Planning should include what areas you want to tackle without breaking your back. Some of these tasks will need professional help like grouting and window washing but if planned well you can do it!
Kitchen and Bathroom
Stubborn surface grime, especially prevalent in kitchens and bathroom needs to be tackled.
The cement-based material between the wall, floor, and countertop tiles is extremely porous and stains easily. Protect it with a penetrating grout sealer.
Deep Clean Carpet
Synthetic carpets and rugs need to be deep-cleaned. You can rent these special vacuums at home improvement stores. These vacuums come with a rotary shampoo machine and a hot-water extraction machine. Rugs without backings, including Orientals, require professional cleaning.
Change batteries in smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors units, change air/furnace filter and make sure units are free of dust.
If you want to let the sun shine in on the bright days to come, window washing is a must. Use warm water and a mild dishwashing liquid to scrub each screen and rinse thoroughly.
Wax Non-Wood Floors
If you have Vinyl and linoleum floors in your home they need to be waxed with a polish to regain their old shine. Specially designed wax polishes are available just for these kinds of surfaces.
Spring cleaning is labor intensive and backbreaking, we will match the right pro to the right job and put the Spring back in your step.
