Sometimes spring cleaning may seem like a horribly long process which may lead do some unsatisfactory results. There are plenty of tricks you can use while doing the tedious home cleaning and make the process a bit easier. People often miss a few spots around the house which they realize only after they are done cleaning and have put all the gear and equipment away. Or they sometimes take the long way and make their own lives harder. You can avoid all that, and here is a small guide on how to avoid all the difficulties of home cleaning.
First of all, don’t burden yourself with too many cleaning products. Your kitchen already contains most of the things you need to have a clean and fresh home. Baking soda, salt, vinegar, and lemon juice are not only helpful, but they are eco-friendly, and you can only gain from using them. Use them to fight off stubborn stains, grease, grime, bad smells, bacteria, and pests. Carpet cleaning, oven cleaning, upholstery cleaning, it’s all an easy job when you apply these products the right way. There are plenty of sites that can tell you exactly how to implement all of them in a variety of ways for a variety of effects. Browse the web a bit and trade a tiresome trip to the store with a quick skip to the kitchen cupboard and take out all you need for a fast and productive cleaning.
Some of the things people miss while home cleaning include power outlets, which accumulate dirt on the inside and sometimes become sticky, and pulling a plug from them can become quite irksome. Not to mention that if you are using a household appliance that needs to be plugged out as soon as possible, this may turn into a problem. Ever have your oven plug melt your outlet because they were stuck together while doing too much cooking? Well, that certainly is a possibility which you should try and avoid.
Another thing people overlook is light switches. The sides of the switch are often ignored and this also leads to sticking and harder usage, and potential breaking, of the switch. Don’t overlook the small things; everything in your house may have some nasty effect if neglected long enough.
When carpet cleaning, people usually clean only the upper side of the carpet which is well enough. But neglecting the underside means not inspecting your floor for mold. If the carpet was ever damp and left unchecked, it could have transferred some moist to the floor. Accumulate enough moisture, and soon you will be walking over moldy floors.
Speaking of mold, this is something people rarely check for. Any surface that has suffered from moist is a subject of molding, so do frequent inspections. Mold appears slow, but you shouldn’t wait for it to appear – prevention is the easiest way to clean something.
Use drain and clog cleaners every once in a while even if there is no need for it. When a need arises, it is probably too late for cleaning and time for fixing. Don’t wait that long and again – prevent to avoid fixing and cleaning altogether.
And, of course, the easiest way to a clean house people overlook just because it costs them money, is calling up a cleaning agency. If your budget allows it, get a professional cleaner to do the maintenance for you. Resting is important as well.
