Even with part of the country battling yet another Nor’easter, the rest of the country is welcoming in a new season. You know what that means! Yes, it’s already that time of year again. It’s time to bust open your windows, and your cleaning supplies. The time for spring cleaning has arrived! Don’t know where to start? We’re here to help you tackle those spots you’ve likely neglected for the past year.
Make a Schedule
Scope out your home looking for areas needing the most work. Where do you skip during routine cleaning? Those are the best places to start. Regardless of where you start, having a plan for when you’re tackling each room will keep you focused on the task at hand.
A disorganized home adds to your stress level. Spend some time organizing your closets, spring cleaning your office, and that junk drawer we all have to eliminate unnecessary stress from your life.
From Top Down
It’s important to start from the ceiling down. This will force debris downward and keep you from having to re-dust or re-clean your space. If you have the Shark Navigator Lift-Away Deluxe Vacuum from Buydig.com with a long extension hose, use it to get cobwebs and dust from your ceilings and fans. Then dust your furniture and other items before vacuuming all the dust from your floors. Hint: When dusting, wait for a sunny day, when particles will be easier to see.
You want to start spring off on a clean note, so don’t expose yourself to chemicals and toxins. This Shark Professional Steam Pocket Mop is one of the best green products for cleaning hard floor surfaces. Since steam cleaners only use hot water vapor, they are a 100% natural and chemical-free cleaning solution.
Wash Your Whole Bed
Pillows and comforters only need to be washed once a year, so now is the time to tackle this chore. Make sure you check the manufacturer’s label before tossing them into the washing machine. If you have to, just toss them in the dryer to get the surface dust off and give them a good fluff! The perfect time to pay attention to what’s under your bedding? When your sheets and comforter are being washed too. Use your vacuum’s crevice tool to clean the surface and sides.
Stop Dirt at the Door
Double up on doormats. You’ll trap the most dirt by using two mats, one outside the door and one inside. But if they’re dirty, they won’t do the job. Hose off and air-dry mats, and vacuum indoor ones on both sides. Vacuuming the back will push trapped dirt out onto the floor where it will be easier to pick up.
De-lint the Dryer
You should already be removing the fuzz from your dryer’s filter after every load. For the lint that gets stuck deeper inside your machine, use the crevice tool on the handheld part of your Shark Rocket DeluxePro Upright Vacuum from Buydig.com and suck up the debris.
Once you’ve covered these major tasks, you’ll have your home spring-cleaned in no time. Then to keep on top of your floors, let the Shark ION Robot 750 do the work of keeping your floors clean for you while you’re out enjoying the nice spring weather.
