Winter is almost here, and while many people often put their deep cleaning off until Spring, you can actually do yourself a humongous favor by doing some winter cleaning so you have less to do. In this guide we’re going to give you some deep cleaning tips from Cleaning World that you can do to make sure you are getting the most out of your home this winter, and improve the way your home not only looks, but also how it feels.
What Else Do You Have to Do?
Winter is notorious for holidays, lounging, keeping warm, and so much more. But as the subject of this paragraph states, should you really put off everything later? If you can get a good start, you may want to start doing some home renovation projects, or even maximize the efficiency of your home’s electricity in order to get the best energy savings possible.
By weatherizing your home, cleaning and changing your furnace filters, and even covering and sealing windows, you can greatly increase the amount of heat that stays in your home during the winter, while keeping the cold out.
Declutter the Home
Winter is a great time to start getting rid of your clutter. Have a lot of wood items in your home you need to get out of the house? Throw them outside and make a bonfire in the snow. No, we’re joking honestly. But it is a great time to get rid of a lot of clutter in your home by getting rid of junk and possibly taking items to a second-hand store. This is also a great time to eliminate unused clothing that you wore earlier in the year.
Fix and Eliminate Dryer Hazards
Believe it or not, dryer lint can build up inside your vent hose, and end up being a fire hazard that is just a time bomb ticking to go off. Therefore, you want to take this time to remove the back off of your dryer, and look up ways to clean the outlet and the dryer vent hole in order to keep yourself safe, as well as make your dryer work more efficiently. Do your dryers take more than one cycle to get clothes dry? If so, you want to do this first and you may be surprised at the outcome.
Magic Dust Removal Hacks
Believe it or not, basin water vacuums can greatly help increase the air quality of your home and eliminate contaminants at the same time. There are both expensive and budget vacuum systems out there that you can literally just fill a little bit with water, then take the hose off, and run it for a while. Of course, you’ll want to possibly steam clean your carpets and floors, vacuum and dust your house as normal first, but while using an item like a Rainbow® vacuum or similar units, you can run it and it will suck up airborne dust and trap it in the inner container.
Winter is no time to just be lounging around, and at the same time, you can actually stay warmer with the more activity you have for starters, and at the same time benefit in the Spring when you don’t have so much to do, and can still relax a little bit!
