Get your spring cleaning on!

Floorcare, Help & Advice

As spring arrives, it’s time to break out the brooms and dusters to get your house in prime condition for summer. But before you begin sweeping and dusting, take some time to create a plan.

Cleaning your house will be much simpler if you break it up into smaller tasks rather than trying to complete everything at once, especially if you’re busy with kids or work.

Catch the Cobwebs

Cobwebs are a common sight in homes. They’re usually found in the upper corners, behind furniture and around light fixtures.

But they are more than a visual issue; they also attract spiders. Spiders are renowned for their incredible web-building abilities, so it’s imperative to eliminate them as soon as possible.

Thankfully, there are numerous non-chemical ways to remove and clean cobwebs without using anything unpleasant. Furthermore, keeping your home free of dust and allergens is essential for a healthy home environment.

Avoiding Dust and Allergens

Dust and allergens can be the triggers for many allergy symptoms, so it’s best to steer clear of them while you do your spring cleaning.

Vacuum frequently and use a HEPA filter to reduce dust accumulation in your air.

Another effective way to minimise your exposure to allergens is by clearing unused or unwanted items from your home. Clutter can also contribute to keeping the air cleaner, since things don’t accumulate as quickly and there’s less dirt for you to vacuum.

Clean your Rugs and Carpets

Rugs and carpets accumulate dust, dirt, and other pollutants which can negatively impact air quality. With spring in full swing, now is the ideal time to give your rugs and carpets some extra attention so they are ready for you and your family!

Homemade cleaning solutions such as vinegar and water can help remove stains on natural fibre rugs. However, if the stain persists, you may need to try a specialist floor care detergent instead.

Then Upholstery

Upholstered furniture can become a breeding ground for spills and dirt over time, leading to fabric fiber wear that makes cleaning harder.

Your upholstery furniture will always look its best with regular cleaning and prevent the need for costly replacement.

Also Car Seats

Car seats can get a lot of grime over time, from food crumbs to sun cream streaks. Little messes like these add up over time and make your seat appear worse for wear.

Begin by vacuuming your car seats to eliminate all dirt and debris. Doing this will prevent them from being pushed deeper into the upholstery when using wet cleaners.

Cordless Vacuum Cleaners

Cordless vacuum cleaners are an ideal choice if you want to quickly and easily clean your home without the strain of having to haul out a heavy-duty vacuum. Plus, their small design allows for easier access into tight places that a corded upright cleaner may not be able to reach.

A reliable cordless vacuum should possess strong suction power and an impressive battery life. Furthermore, it should be able to reach into tight places like under furniture with ease.

Carpet Washers

Spring is again the ideal time for a deep clean of your carpets. Doing this will get rid of dust, pollen and other particles that have built up during the winter.

Carpet cleaners can also remove stains left behind by children and pets. Investing in a quality carpet cleaner this season for optimal cleanliness and freshness throughout your home.

Multi Surface Cleaners

Having the correct cleaning products in your home will save you both time and money. Instead of purchasing different cleaners for each surface, invest in a multi-surface cleaner that works across all surfaces.

These products come with a range of features and are ideal for any season. They can be used on countertops, tile and wood; some even work on granite and sealed stone surfaces! Just remember to read the directions thoroughly and test it on an inconspicuous area before use.
