It's that time of the year again when homeowners throughout the country look to their home and try to maintain the property ready for the warmer months. With your spring cleaning process ready to begin, let’s look at the steps you need to take to complete our spring cleaning checklist in 2017.
Clean the Dryer Vent
This is both a safety priority and a functional benefit within the home. Your home dryer vent can become clogged with lint and other materials. These elements can present a fire hazard if they’re not removed from the vent on a regular basis. Cleaning your dryer vent can also ensure your home dryer performs more efficiently, helping you minimize energy costs.
The home sofa is likely the space you’ve been using most in the home throughout the winter season. Make sure that you vacuum your sofas to ensure that all dust and other contaminants are removed from the material. You might also consider having your sofa covers dry-cleaned if you’re planning on having events in the home in the coming warmer months.
Clean Ceiling Fan Blades
One of the most common challenges homeowners face during the warm weather is the spread of dust and other contaminants throughout the home through their fans and ventilation systems. Make sure all ceiling fan blades are cleaned and the dust is removed with precision. This will help to limit allergies during spring season and ensure that the home remains clean for a longer period of time.
Clear Grease from Kitchen Cabinets
It's likely you’ve spent a lot of time during the winter season cooking meals in your kitchen space. Over time, grease and other debris can build-up on kitchen cabinets, limiting their appeal. Make sure to place a heavy focus on the kitchen when completing your spring cleaning checklist. Use a cabinet cream to clean deeply into the surface of cabinets and remove built-in materials that have been collected over previous months.
Take the Time to Brighten Stainless Steel
Now is the time to clean your stainless steel appliances and ensure they achieve that bright and brilliant shine once again. Try to use a wax-based aerosol spray as part of the cleaning process to ensure you don’t damage the material. Using the cleaner a few times per month will ensure your appliances look their peak best for all home events to come this summer.
