Cleaning your home in the wintertime can be a challenging task when you’re still dealing with cleaning snow and ice off of your driveway regularly and spending time clearing off your vehicle before leaving for work in the morning. That’s why you need to make the process less time-consuming. To guide you through this process we’re offering a guide to winter cleaning for your home within our latest post.
Commit to Carpet Cleaning
Carpets throughout your home are more prone to holding bacteria than other surfaces. That’s because of the fibers within the carpet, and their density. Try to clean all home carpets during these first few weeks of winter, and then you can ensure they’re in optimal condition ready to handle the cooler temperatures and moisture that arrives over the winter months.
Maintain Your Furnace
Your furnace is the element keeping your home heated during these cooler months. By maintaining the furnace effectively you can reduce your home heating bills and ensure the system works at peak efficiency throughout the winter months. Remember to change the furnace filter regularly and to dust under and around the furnace to assure optimal air circulation.
Keep the Ceiling Clean
During the winter you’re probably spending more time at home cooking rather than going out to that favourite local restaurant. Make sure your additional cooking doesn’t negatively impact your property by keeping the kitchen ceiling clean. Use dish soap and bleach to gently rub away any dirt or grime build-up on the ceiling and keep the space in peak condition.
Wash Couches and Upholstery Regularly
With most of the family staying inside during the cooler months, couches and their upholstery can become a breeding ground for germs and bacteria. Clean these areas carefully on a regular basis to protect the family and ensure that any food spills and left over odours are quickly eliminated.
Choose One Family Cleaning Day a Month
It can be difficult to maintain a cleaning regimen over time when there is no set timetable for the cleaning work to take place. That’s why it’s important you stick with one family cleaning day a month. This day should be set at a time when all members of the family are available and the work should include everyone living in the house. This will ensure all family members take ownership of the cleaning process.
