It might not feel like it quite yet – but spring is on the way! Spring cleaning is the perfect way to celebrate the change of seasons. Let DealDash help you make a plan for cleaning up.
The weather might still feel chilly, but it is slowly warming up. Daylight Savings Time is coming soon, on March 14th at 2 AM. You’ll have an extra hour of sun, and everything will be so much brighter after you give the house a good spring cleaning. DealDash has some suggestions for making your spring cleaning plans. Read on for some cleaning suggestions.
(Please) Clean Your Mattress
First on your spring cleaning plan should be giving all of the mattresses in the house a good cleaning. Begin by removing all of the blankets, pillows, and sheets. These will all need to be laundered. I find that washing two pillows in the washing machine at a time creates a nice balance, so you won’t hear a “thump thump thump” when they are washing. Be sure to check all of your pillows and blankets for the proper setting on the washing machine to use.
While the bedding is washing, it’s paramount that you vacuum the mattress. Additionally, I like to use a steam cleaner on the mattresses in my home. You will need to do this task as early in the day as possible, as it takes a few hours for the mattress to be completely dry after steam cleaning. As with the pillows, be sure to check the tag on your mattress for cleaning instructions.
Spring Cleaning Carpets and Rugs
Next, another important item that might be neglected around the house is your carpets and also your rugs. Giving your carpets and rugs a good cleaning is very important when you are spring cleaning. Throughout the year there are spills and dirt that can occur that might not be easily vacuumed up. You will want to begin by giving them a very thorough vacuuming.
I don’t know about you, but since I vacuum every (or every 2nd!) day, it tends to be a very quick chore. I don’t get every square inch and probably miss a few crumbs here and there. It’s not a big deal, since I know that I will be vacuuming the next day, anyway. However, during this carpet and rug vacuuming, be very meticulous. After you have done a thorough vacuum, you will want to check each and every bit to make sure there are no stains that need to be cleaned. If there are, then you will want to get a rug “spot cleaner”, and follow the directions on the container.
Finally, if you have (or want to rent) a carpet steam cleaner, then spring cleaning is a perfect time! The website Simply Designing has an article that will give you the step-by-step carpet cleaning directions you need to make your endeavor a success.
