Let Your House Shine With These Spring Cleaning Tips

Pulizie di primaveraSpring Cleaning Checklist

As the weather continues to warm up for spring, it is the perfect time to pull out your spring cleaning list to ensure that your house looks its best. To get your house shining from top to bottom, keep these simple spring cleaning tips in mind.

  • Wipe down your ceilings and walls. Use your vacuum to get rid of any dust, and a solvent free degreaser to get rid of any more stubborn spots.
  • Shampoo your rugs to get rid of any deep down dirt. Make sure to only shampoo rugs that have waterproof backings. Rugs that do not have any backings, such as Oriental rugs, need to be cleaned by a professional.
  • Check all of your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms throughout your house to ensure that they are working properly. If any of your alarms are more than 10 years old, replace them with new models.
  • Take down any machine washable curtains or drapes and send them through a wash cycle. Use a damp rag to clean any wooden or vinyl blinds that you have.
  • Wax your wooden furniture to keep it looking its best. Wipe down the piece first, and then use a soft cloth to apply a paste wax.
  • Wash your window screens by taking them off of the window and scrubbing them gently with a soft brush and mild soap.
  • Dust your entire house. Walk room to room and dust off all surfaces, including the top of your fan, baseboards, and window casings. Not only will dusting thoroughly help to keep your home looking its best, but it can also help if you have any spring allergies.

The new season is also the perfect time to look over your homeowner’s insurance policy to ensure that it is providing the right amount of coverage. Contact the independent insurance agents at Mayer Insurance in Apple Valley, Minnesota for all of your home insurance needs.
