With the onset of warmer weather, spring is the perfect time to tackle
home cleaning projects. At Bay Home & Window, we offer organization
solutions such as
custom closets and home office design for our Bay Area clients. Home organization systems
are key to maintaining a clean and tidy home. Here are some ideas for
terrific spring cleaning projects:
Clean Windows, Screens, and Blinds
Spring is the perfect time for window cleaning. Windows are best cleaned
with a dish soap and water solution. Simply sponge the panes to remove
dirt and then use a squeegee to wipe the water away. Window screens and
blinds should be cleaned once or twice a year. With the warmer weather,
screens and aluminum blinds can be hosed off outside and laid on a flat
surface to dry with a towel. If you have wooden blinds, clean with a gentle
wood cleaning solution.
Clean Carpets and Rugs
Our rugs are subjected to constant use all year long, so deep-cleaning
your area rugs and carpets is the perfect springtime task. Many people rent a
steam vacuum or shampooer for this task, while others prefer to call in a professional
for the job. Whatever you choose, there’s nothing like the feel
and look of a clean carpet.
Dust Ceiling Fans and Lightbulbs
During the winter months when ceiling fans go unused, an amazing amount
of dust can collect on the blades. The same goes for lightbulbs, especially
ones that are set in recessed fixtures. Depending on the amount of dust,
you can use either a damp rag or feather duster to remove dust particles
from ceiling fans. For lightbulbs, make sure to remove the lightbulbs
before dusting the bulbs with a microfiber cloth.
Switch Out Your Linens
It’s time to retire your down comforter and flannel sheet set for
the season. Many people find it a great mood booster to change out the
bed linens in favor of lighter sheets and blankets. If it’s time
to replace your linens, consider opting for lighter summery colors, which
add to a clean feel to any bedroom. Switching out linens is a great way
to give an instant makeover to a tired old room.
