General Spring Cleaning Tips

general_cleaningWe also have a few more things you should bare in mind while having your spring clean.

Sliding door tracks.
Its not one of the first things you notice but once the party season gets started and you have guests around you don’t want your door tracks looking grubby.
Just take an old tooth brush and scrub at any debri or dirt once its loose just hoover it up and then spray with some antibacterial cleaner and wipe with a dry cloth.

Doorframes
Over the year we tent to overlook cleaning door frames and skirting boards so once a year we need to get some warm soapy water and give them a good wash. Take your sponge and some soap suds and wash the surfaces, once the surfaces are nice and clean take an old hand towel and buff dry.

Cleaning under your furniture and appliances
This will really get your blood pumping so make sure you’ve got a nice strong friend who is willing to help. Firstly you want to move your sofas and chairs so you can give the carpet a good hoover, lift the rugs and any other furniture you do not clean under regularly and finish up your hovering. It’s the same in the bedrooms you should move your bed, drawers and wardrobe and give the carpet a good hoover. You should do this in every room even the kitchen if you can move the appliances.

Smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.
While you are having your spring clean this is a good time to check all your batteries. Check your smoke alarms, carbon monoxide detector and even all your remote controls.

De-Cluttering your home before you start to clean is always a good idea.
Firstly you should start by gathering anything that is broken chipped or you know you wont use it again and either bin it or give to a charity shop. So lets look at what strategies we can use to get you started.

You will need 4 big boxes you can pick these up at your local shops. Mark them bin, charity, sell and keep

Pick your first room and have a look on the floor, book shelves and all surface areas. Be tough with yourself if you don’t use it,, loose it… If you have the time you can also look inside drawers and cupboard and get all those old handbags old gifts set you have never even opened out into your sell box.

Once you have filled up your boxes bin the rubbish and take your charity box to the charity shop and put your keep box in the loft with your sell box. Once you have finished cleaning you can go into your sell box and either have a car boot sale or there are lots of online website were you can sell your old belongings now, just take a pic and upload either give an asking prie or ask them to make you an offer.

Now your room is clutter free its time to roll up those sleeves and get down to the dirty work.
