Winter brings with it the holidays, snowstorms, and colder weather. It also is the time of year when people spend more time indoors. This combination makes it the perfect time to get some extra deep cleaning done at home. Getting some of this cleaning done during the cold, winter months will help you start the year off right.
Here’s a complete winter cleaning checklist to help you get started.
Deep Clean Carpets
Carpets are great for the winter months. They keep your feet warm and make your space look cozy. Carpets, however, collect a lot of dirt and debris over the summer and fall months, which can make your carpet look dull and dirty. Make good use of the winter months by giving your carpet a makeover. Schedule a deep carpet cleaning service to restore your carpets original beauty and to extend its lifetime.
Clean Furnace Filters and Vents
Winter is the ideal time to have your furnace serviced and the vents and filters cleaned. This one little step can ensure your furnace works at peak performance all winter long. Dirty vents and filters also can cause some people to have respiratory problems, such as allergies and asthma. Taking the time to clean your vents and filters can keep everyone healthy during the winter.
Refresh Your Upholstery
Just like your carpets, upholstery can attract dirt, grime, and debris, which can make your furniture look old and worn. Before you spend money on new furniture, invest in upholstery cleaning. This deep cleaning process can remove much of this unwanted dirt and grime and leave your furniture looking and smelling great.
Wipe Your Windows Clean
While it may be too cold to spend a lot of time outdoors during the winter, that doesn’t mean that you still can’t enjoy the sites around your home. Clean your windows from the inside out. This step will make sure that you can still enjoy your natural surroundings no matter how cold it is outside.
Tidy Up Closets
When was the last time you tidied up your closet? If it’s been more than a few months, don’t wait until spring. Winter is a great time to donate all your unwanted items to charity. Sort through your bedroom closets and pantry at home and the supply closet and breakroom at work. Get rid of or donate anything that you don’t need anymore or haven’t used over the past year.
Once you’ve checked these things off your cleaning list, you can sit back and enjoy the rest of your winter.
