To help you achieve a stress-free deep clean this spring season, here’s a 10-day cleaning tip sheet on how to clean room by room.
Set aside time to clean up high. Ceilings and appliances mounted up high such as ceiling fans, chandeliers, or air-conditioning units are some of the dustiest places due to the inconvenient height. Remove anything mounted to your walls (photo frames or clocks) and vacuum the dust that has built up on the walls. Don’t forget to vacuum around the crevices of any immovable furniture (bookcases, televisions).
Dust walls by using a vacuum with advanced filtration to ensure that the dust you’re removing stays trapped in the bin and is not expelled back into the home. Dust on certain wall types can also contribute towards the growth of mould.
Don’t forget the curtains and blinds as well. Using the mini soft dusting brush, vacuum dust away before washing curtains at 60-90 degree Celsius to kill any germs and bacteria. Carpets are the perfect hiding place for dustmites, where they cling deeply in the fibres. Vacuum to reduce the number of dust mites and to remove their food source.
