These days, cleaning has been on everyone’s minds; but spring cleaning is something different. It’s a chance to dig deep into different sections of the home and really get the place shipshape. At Perfect Fit Window Fashions serving Estero, we’ll be happy to give you some ideas on where you can turn your spring cleaning attention. Read on to learn more!
Steps to Take
You’re probably a pro at cleaning the surfaces of your home. But what about other areas? Here are some steps to consider:
- Disinfect. As you’re cleaning door handles and other frequently touched surfaces, don’t forget light switches and TV remotes—both of which are touched by many hands quite often. And don’t forget to disinfect your cutting boards.
- Upkeep. If it’s been a while since you last changed the batteries in your smoke or carbon monoxide detectors, take the time to do it now. Change your furnace filter, and spend some time with your dryer vent—clear it of dust and lint.
- Appliances. Now’s the time to clean appliances in your home, such as the oven, computers (when was the last time you cleaned the keyboard?), and televisions. And don’t forget the fridge—be sure to clean the bottom, where everything drips, and pull it from the wall to clean up any dust bunnies there and beneath the unit.
Show Your Windows Some Love
Your windows are the gateway to the outside world, so now’s a great time to show them some love. Clean the interior and exterior of the windows, wash the screens, and clean off the sills. And don’t forget your window treatments. You can dust blinds and shades, use compressed air to clean out cellular shades such as Duette® Honeycomb Shades, and use the brush attachment on your vacuum to get at the dust on treatments like Silhouette® window shadings. If you have treatments like Everwood® Alternative Wood Blinds or Modern Precious Metals® Aluminum Blinds, you can remove them and clean them with lukewarm water in a bathtub or sink. Reinstall the treatment while it’s still damp, and lower it to let it completely dry.
