Don’t skip these three spring cleaning tasks

We regularly wipe, dust, sweep and mop our homes, but usually reserve that deep scrubbing and sanitising for only a few times each year. For many, spring is that time, so make sure you don’t miss these three very important jobs this spring.

We regularly wipe, dust, sweep and mop our homes, but usually reserve that deep scrubbing and sanitising for only a few times each year. For many, spring is that time, so make sure you don’t miss these three very important jobs this spring.

1. Steam your carpets and rugs

Carpets and rugs can store dust mites and allergens. While vacuuming can be very effective in removing most of these, your indoor air quality will suffer if you don’t steam your carpets and rugs every so often. That’s because without deep cleaning, bacteria and mould can grow.

2. Don’t forget your laundry machine and dishwasher

You can’t expect your dishwasher and laundry machine to clean your belongings if they themselves are filled with gunk.

Take some time to clean every part of your washing machine with a diluted vinegar spray, including areas like the tub, the detergent area and the plastic seal around the door.

Disassemble your dishwasher a bit as well and give all the parts a thorough scrub before running an empty cycle with vinegar and water.

3. Sometimes, just chuck it

If something is difficult to clean regularly – pillows, large duvets and bath mats – it might be time to throw it out. If these items are pushing a few years old, make spring the time you buy new.
