3 Areas of Your Home That Could Use a Deep Clean
Refresh Your Home with a Deep Clean
Every season is different and they all leave behind things to clean. Some seasons there will be lots of entertaining or traveling, and others will be calmer but life is always hectic, and with everything that is going on, it’s hard to make time to clean every corner of the house.
Spring is a very representative season for starting over and starting to clean. We’re about a month into spring, but surely, there are still things in your home that need some TLC. Three areas, in particular, could benefit from a deep clean:
If there’s one area that tends to get very messy in every house, that’s the kitchen. From the cabinets and drawers to the fridge, there is undoubtedly a lot to take care of. You’d be surprised how dirty kitchen windows tend to get from the combination of kitchen grease and dirt. That same mix of elements gets stuck to your countertops and shelves. Scrub those surfaces with soapy water, rinse them thoroughly and make sure you dry them all the way.
The refrigerator also requires attention as its cleanliness ensures food safety. Take time to clean everything out of there, scrub all the shelves, rinse and dry them. Oh, and throw out everything that has expired.
Carpets can easily become your home’s dust central. They get full of allergens and dirt —especially if you’ve been entertaining a lot— and that can ruin the look of your home. Deep cleaning all area rugs and carpets in your home will not only make everything look nicer, but it will also minimize your chances of getting allergies.
The garage is usually the place everything that has no specific purpose in your home goes to —and of course, where your vehicles are. That is typically an area that is semi-exposed to the outdoors and can easily collect so much dirt and debris from the outside. Everything, from the walls to the floors, gets permeated with dirt and needs some love every so often. Marie Kondo-ing the entire room is the best idea, but before doing so, it would be great to pressure wash the floors to get rid of all the dirt that might be trapped there, so you don’t bring it into the house.
There’s no denying that there’s a lot of effort in keeping a tidy and pristine home. What other areas of your home do you think could use a deep clean?
