Secret Spring-Cleaning Tips

Keeping your home clean and organized year-round is difficult, but not impossible.


Many homeowners start cleaning their home with energy and enthusiasm, but lose interest midway as they do not know how to proceed. It is important that you create a plan before starting to clean your home. When you have a plan, it is easier to create (and follow) a workflow.


Spring is already here. Now is the right time to give every room in your home a deep clean in order to prepare your home for summer. Before you get to work, take a look at our cleaning checklist for Santa Rosa homeowners.


Clean Inside Your Fridge

Over time, dirt collects on coils and other parts of refrigerators affecting their efficiency.  A dirty refrigerator can become a breeding ground for disease-causing germs.


To deep clean your refrigerator, first create a mixture of baking soda, white vinegar and water. Pour a few drops of the cleaning solution on a sponge or a cloth and scrub through your refrigerator.


Give Your Cabinets a Deep Clean 

When cleaning the kitchen, many people ignore their cabinets. This mistake can lead to long-term consequences. Everyday food splatters, water stains, and fingerprints can affect the appearance of cabinets and cause them to become an eyesore.


Before cleaning cabinets, empty them of all contents. Then pour a few drops of a mild cleaner on a microfiber and wipe down the inside of your cabinets and drawers. Use vinegar and baking soda for stubborn stains.


Vacuum Under Furniture


Over time, dust, pollen, and other allergens can build up under your furniture. To keep your house clean, vacuum under your beds, couches, and other furniture. You may need help moving bulky furniture. Use a vacuum with a longer and narrower attachment to access hard-to-reach areas.


Many house cleaning professionals recommend cleaning underneath furniture every week. How frequently you should vacuum under your furniture depends on the number of residents, if you have pets, and if someone in your home has a seasonal allergy.


Do Not Forget Your Windows


Dirt and dust can accumulate on your windows over time. Smudges and streaks on your windows can make them look older than they are.


Natural light can barely pass-through dirty windows. In addition to affecting the curb appeal of your home, dirty windows can affect your health in a variety of ways. They can become a breeding ground for fungus and mold. Exposure to a large number of mold spores can cause health problems.


Clean your windows with a microfiber cloth or sponge soaked in a cleaning solution. Once you have gotten rid of dirt, dry your windows completely using a lint-free towel.
