Is It Time to Give Your House A Thorough Cleaning?

Posted on: 29 May 2019

It's not too late to get your spring cleaning done. After all, even if it feels like summer in your part of the country, it's still springtime. Maybe you were super busy in the early part of spring. However, you have probably considered that soon the kids will be home from school for the summer. That means you'll be busy all over again and that it will be hard to find the time to get your house thoroughly cleaned.

No matter the scenario that has led you to do your major cleaning project, do you have a plan of action already? If not, from making a plan to tackling chores like window blind cleaning, here are some ideas that might help you.

Make A Cleaning Plan 

The first thing you might want to consider is how much time you want to take to get the house thoroughly cleaned. For example, do you want to use one entire day to get the job done? If so, choose a day where you won't have distractions like lunch with friends or going to a doctor's appointment. Block out that day on your calendar.

On the other hand, maybe you want to extend the cleaning job to an entire work week. If that's the case, consider taking just two or three hours each day to do your work. For instance, on Monday you could dust all of the wood in the house, including window sills. On Tuesday you could clean all of the bathrooms thoroughly. Wednesday could be reserved for cleaning the kitchen, including your oven and the refrigerator ā€” and so on.

Get The Work Done 

After you have set your cleaning schedule, pay attention to things like window blind cleaning. First of all, run your finger over the blinds to see what you find. Nasty, right? If it has been quite a bit of time since you've cleaned your window blinds, you'll probably be amazed at the dirt that has accumulated. Start with a feather duster that has a gentle cleanser on it that will literally attract the dust. If the window blinds need additional attention, water with a mild cleansing solution in it will more than likely do the trick.

Perhaps you are cleaning the window blinds for all of the windows in your house. If so, don't forget the blinds in the bedrooms and in your enclosed patio.

Do the same with the rest of the things that need dusting. For example, a feather duster for your wooden furniture will probably do the job. If not, use a product that is made especially for wood to do deeper cleaning.
