Spring Cleaning Survival Guide

Spring has dawned on us, a fresh start to the year. It’s the time of the year where the flowers start to bloom, new leaves and fresh grass make their appearance. It’s natures time to start anew, refresh itself. As the outdoors refreshes itself, shouldn’t our indoor environment do to?
Spring cleaning to many of us is a daunting and dreadful task. Sometimes we just need a little help to get started. Well, here we bring to you our top 3 tips to help you with your spring cleaning.

Tip #1 – Clean carpets & upholstery

Fabrics that have absorbed a year’s worth of dirt, body oil, and germs will need a deep cleaning to get them ready for another year of wear. When you’re shampooing carpets or cleaning upholstery make sure the treatment won’t discolor fabrics or cause dyes to run.

Move furniture just slightly—not out of the room or against the wall and place the legs of each piece back on top of small wax paper squares after shampooing. The wax paper will protect your carpet and keep the furniture legs from getting wet as the carpet dries. If you’re not the furniture-shifting and machine-renting type, change those carpets or upholstery.

Tip #2 – Refresh your flooring

To protect the floors in your kitchen from another year of wear and tear, wax or apply a sealer following label directions. The simplest method: Use a combination wash-and-wax floor cleaner. No-wax floors don’t need a polishing treatment, but an occasional makeover will keep them looking fresher and add a protective buffer that could help them last longer.

Tip #3 - Give your walls a fresh look!

The walls may not look as if they need a bath—dust and soot fall to the floor, right? Most of it does, but just enough clings to vertical surfaces to warrant a bath. Use a sponge and hand dishwashing detergent, washing the surface in sections. A sponge mop makes it easier to reach higher spots. If all that is too troublesome, simply install new wallcoverings.
