Now that it is already summer, many people may be thinking that they had very little time to get their spring cleaning done. If you are like many people, you probably got caught up in work and family activities and forgot all about spring cleaning. No worries! With summer vacations planned, you probably do not have much time now to spend days cleaning the entire house, but that’s OK. We have quick house cleaning tips that will make your home shine.
Summer House Cleaning Tips
Not only is that little nook between the back of the washer and the wall an inconvenient place to lose little odds and ends it is also another space wasted. Why not practice a smart and convenient way to organize by mounting shelves over the top of a washer or dryer, creating a space-saving solution for laundry and cleaning supplies.
Whether you have a full house and need more room for dirty laundry, or if you want an easy way to keep your whites and colored clothing items separate, the overhead shelves or organizers will prove a big help for keeping things in order. This item features 2.5″ casters, a heavy duty steel frame with a wire frame bottom that keeps bags off the floor and three handy, removable bags
Cleaning the Fans
The next thing to check is your electric fan or ceiling fans. Using fans is the best way of distributing the cool air in the room during these hot muggy days. Hence, you must keep them clean so that you do not end up having the soot sprinkled all over your beautiful interiors and clean room. Remember to clean your fans from time to time, at least once a month so that whatever dust deposition is there on the ceiling fan, it can be taken care of without dirtying the room.
In the bathrooms, do a thorough cleaning of the tubs and showers. Disinfect around the toilets and sinks to prevent the spread of germs. As for shower doors, they are often breeding grounds for copious amounts of residue as well as soap scum. You can clean them by just rinsing and wiping them after you have stepped out of the shower. Use some lemon oil to get rid of soap scum on your shower doors. Then, apply the lemon oil to your shower doors about once a week to prevent soap scum and residue buildup in the future and you’re set.
Mildew can be prevented by ensuring that your bathroom has substantial ventilation. For instance, you can dry your shower and your tub after your shower or bath by running your bathroom’s fan. Then, sheath your tub area by wrapping the shower curtain around your tub. By closing off gaps, you will prevent mildew from getting into any damp and moist folds.
The kitchen and bathrooms are the rooms in the home that tend to get the dirtiest, so if you can’t tackle the entire house, focus on these areas first. Wipe down everything in the kitchen, including appliances and countertops. Don’t forget to clean the inside of the microwave, oven, and refrigerator.
Floors can gather dirt, dust, and musty smells quickly if not cleaned. Another house cleaning tip is shampooing the carpet and sweeping the hardwood floors to remove the smells and dirt of winter and make the floors more tolerable for the summer – when you walk around barefoot.
Windows and doors
Windows help bring in light to help the inside of the home look cleaner. So be sure to stock up window cleaner and get them sparkly clean. This can be a daunting task if you have high windows or many home windows, but the results will be worth it.
Clean and shining glass windows and doors reflect the cleanliness levels of your house. So make sure you scrub your glass windows and doors with proper cleaning agents to keep them clean and free of stains. Remember you need to clean them more frequently to keep them dust and spot-free.
Your home will be more comfortable if you replace filters, such as water, air, and furnace filters. Look for burnt-out light bulbs. Keep your home safe by replacing smoke detector batteries as well.
