Home Cleaning – 5 Ways to Make Your Home Sparkly Clean Home Cleaning Services Home Improvement by Lizzie Weakley - October 19, 2022October 19, 2022 Home Cleaning – 5 Ways to Make Your Home Sparkly Clean Every once in a while, you need to take stock of our surroundings and do a little bit of deep cleaning to put some life back into your habitat. Sometimes you don’t notice when your home has gotten a little stale. A good house cleaning can make your home sparkle and will likely improve your mood and your health. There are 5 basic things you can do to make your home sparkly clean. Wash the Windows and Use Window Treatments One of the best ways to literally make your home sparkle is to clean water spots, dust, pollution, and fingerprints on the window panes. Clean windows immediately allow for more natural daylight to filter into the house. While you are at it, wash drapes and curtains and wipe down blinds. It is amazing how much dust and allergens accumulate on window dressings. Dust Everything Routine dusting of furniture is great. But you actually need to dust every surface of the home to remove the accumulation of particulates. Think beyond tabletops and hit the walls, crown and base moldings, window sills, and ceiling fan blades. If this feels daunting, try aiming for dusting one room a day. That way, every week your surfaces are clean without wearing you out all at once. No doubt, you’ll notice a difference in your home’s air quality. Deep Clean Carpets and Floors – Call Home Cleaning Services! Routine vacuuming, sweeping, and mopping only go so far. It is always a good idea to hire a professional to steam clean your carpets and to mechanically clean tile floors. Periodic steam cleaning extracts dirt, dust mites, and mildew from both soft and hard surfaces. It also extends the life of carpet fibers. A shiny tile floor with clean grout lines is bright and sanitary. Professional services like Dumpson’s Cleaning Services, LLC are equipped and skilled at cleaning all flooring surfaces with care. Wipe Down Appliances There is nothing more annoying than appliances with dull surfaces and fingerprint smudges. Appliances beg to be wiped free of surface grime and polished to a shiny finish, especially stainless steel. At the same time, the interior of all appliances must be cleaned to prevent mold overgrowth and buildup of grease. At least 2x a year, you should consider cleaning the rubber seals on your washing machine, the entire interior of your refrigerator, the range hood, and the inside of your ovens and microwave. Clear and Deodorize Drains Do you have a funky smell in your home that you can’t identify? This could be coming from your drains and garbage disposal. These can all benefit from a good cleaning with a simple solution of baking soda and white vinegar. Giving your home a good cleaning every once in a while can make it sparkle. It can also provide health benefits by removing irritants, allergens, and odors. If this seems like a daunting task, consider hiring a professional cleaning service that can do this in one day. The end result will make you happy and healthy and will impress your guests. About Author – Lizzie Weakley is a freelance writer from Columbus, Ohio.
