Spring Cleaning Tips you Shouldn’t Ignore
Everyone is busy. However, when spring arrives it is time to knock the dust off the shelves and renew the look and feel of your home. For most this means spring cleaning. Once you have gathered all the supplies it is time to roll up your sleeves and get busy. Some spring cleaning tasks you should be sure to do are highlighted here.
Change the Air Filter
Mould is a serious problem and in many cases a completely silent attacker. While you may know what mould looks like, there are some instances where its presence can go completely unnoticed in certain parts of your home – such as the air vents. If you are like most homeowners you likely do not check the vents regularly but this could be a breeding ground for its development due to the humidity and other factors inside of the space. You should not risk the potential breathing issues mould can cause. Instead, change your air filter regularly, which will prevent or eliminate most issues caused by mould.
Organise Your Storeroom
As spring arrives it is all time to throw out all that winter comfort food that may have added a few extra pounds around your waste. Throw away all the leftover sweets, crisps and any other food that may have been in the storeroom for more than a month opened. You should not settle for old and out-dated snacks when you can throw them out and get healthier options to ensure your body is beach-ready come summer.
Replace Your Pet’s Toys
In addition to cleaning your home and freshening it up for the spring, you should also consider purchasing new toys for your pets. After all, after being carried around all winter, dropped everywhere – including the toilet – and cleaned repeatedly, they have likely seen better days. Rather than trying to clean it again, simply purchase new toys and get rid of the older ones.
Donate Your Old Clothing
Do you really need all the clothes in your closet? Do you even wear them? There is a very good chance that the answer to this question is a resounding “no.” Rather than keeping them around for another season, donate them to a local charity. Someone can likely seriously benefit from the clothes you no longer want and it will free up quite a bit of space in your closet.
Spring cleaning can encompass a number of different activities. Be sure you use the tips here to ensure your home is summer-ready.
