Well its that time of year when we all start to thing about giving our homes a thorough spring clean. We at Cornwall Cleaning Services have come up with our top 10 tips to help you with this years clean.
Make sure you have the right products, as a minimum; an all-purpose cleaner, disinfecting wipes, rubber gloves, glass cleaner for showers and windows, carpet spot cleaner, microfiber cloths, a sponge, and a small duster.
Start with a 5 minute sweep removing any obvious items from rooms they shouldn't be in.
Tackle 1 room at a time, this way you can see the effects quicker which should help motivate you to continue but also it will help stop spreading dirt from one room to another.
Make sure you have the right brush for the job. Use a fine bristled brush for indoors and a firmer brush for outside.
Be brutal, get rid of everything you don't actually need or use. It will save you cleaning time in the future and whats more there are less things to find places for leaving your house feeling less over cluttered.
Fabric freshener can strip towels of their absorbance. Add the equivalent amount of white wine vinegar to washing powder to leave you with softer towels.
Use the dishwasher (if you have one) to reduce your workload, people forget they can be used to clean plastic toys, toothbrush holders, dog toys etc.
Get rid of stains on chopping boards by covering them in salt and then rubbing fresh lemon juice over them.
Don't forget to wash the walls, cabinets, baseboards and woodwork
Or just get us to do it for you to save yourself both time and effort.
We hope this can help you get started on this years spring clean but, we are always here to help if needs be.
