Everyone Knows About Spring Cleaning… But What About Winter Cleaning?
So many people wait until spring to begin their annual cleaning routine. Why is that? The hustle and bustle of the holidays make it the most important time to have your home clean and orderly. For a sparkling house this winter season, D’s Cleaning Service has prepared the four D’s of winter cleaning to ensure your home looks as fresh as newly fallen snow.
Declutter What You Don’t Need
The holidays are a time for giving and receiving. Make room for the new gifts that you will be receiving and get rid of the items you no longer need or use. In fact, you can even stick to the spirit of the season and you can even donate those unwanted items to a person in need. Once you declutter your home, you can bring those unwanted items that are still useable to a donation box within the Baton Rouge area.
The best places to start decluttering are:
- The Garage
- Under Furniture
- The Attic
Disinfect to Make Your Home Healthy
With the colder season coming, the season of viruses and illnesses is not far behind. As you are preparing for the winter holidays, you want to be sure that you are healthy so you can celebrate the festivities with friends and family. After all, you don’t want to miss any of the holiday parties or feasts that you may have scheduled.
There are so many areas of your home that would benefit from a disinfecting scrub to remove bacteria and viruses. However, the most important places to clean include:
- Bath Tubs and Showers
- Kitchen Appliances
- Door Knobs
- Blankets and Bed Sheets
Dust Away the Dirt and Dander
Just like how disinfecting is important to keep your home free from pathogens that can make you sick, dusting is just as important to rid your home of allergens. Because people tend to bundle up inside their homes during the wintertime, it is a good idea to make sure that dusting is a priority on your winter cleaning checklist. This is to make sure you can snuggle up in your favorite blanket without the extra sneezing and wheezing.
Dust hides in several places around the home. Perhaps the most common places dust hides in your house are:
- Window Blinds
- Ceiling Fans
- Shelves and Cabinets
Deep Clean the Floors
Tiles, wood, and carpet all need extra cleaning from time to time. Deep cleaning your floors goes beyond your routine sweeping and vacuuming. A good wash before the winter holidays will make your floors look like new and overall give a refreshed feeling to your home.
To effectively remove stains, dirt and grime from your floors, try:
- Vacuuming Under Furniture
- Shampooing or Steaming Carpets
- Mopping Tiles and Hardwoods
- Polishing Hardwoods
Although different floor types each need a different method of deep cleaning, it is important to properly dry your floors after they have been washed to prevent mold and mildew.
