Summer is the perfect time to refresh your home and clean, especially if you never got around to spring cleaning this year. With the warmer temperatures and longer days, summer cleaning should be a breeze!
Our team at CJ’s Chem-Dry has been in the cleaning industry for years now, and we have done our fair share of keeping homes tidy. There are a few things year after year that we notice homeowners forget to do, so we’ve finally put them into a list for you. Here are 5 tips to keep your home clean this summer!
1. Dust Your Blinds
Quickly remove dust build-up by shutting blinds and dusting with a microfiber cloth. Next, close blinds in the opposite direction for a quick, thorough wipe-down using a non-toxic window cleaner and clean cloth.
2. Schedule a Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning
Upholstery and carpet cleaning in Brooklyn Park, MN is in high demand this summer! With warm temperatures, you can open your windows and your carpet and upholstery will dry even faster than in other seasons. We also remove allergens and airborne bacteria as part of our standard cleaning process. That means that with us, your home can be a healthier, safer place just in time for summer entertaining!
3. Move Kitchen Appliances & Mop Floors Underneath
Over time, crumbs, grease, and other unwanted particles accumulate behind and underneath your stove, refrigerator, and other appliances, providing a food source for insects and other pests. If possible, move your kitchen appliances out from the wall and unplug them. Using a long-handled, slightly damp sponge, mop the back of the appliance to lift dust from the surface and then wipe the floor and walls with hot soapy water. If your tile or wood floors are still dirty, we suggest getting a professional tile cleaning or wood floor in Hennepin County, MN, and surrounding areas.
5. Sanitize Frequently-Touched Surfaces
Keeping a clean home this summer also means getting rid of contaminants that have the potential to make your family sick. There are quite a few ways to sanitize and disinfect your home. You can purchase wipes, aerosol sprays, or have a company do their sanitizing service in Maple Grove, MN in your home.
4. Vacuum all the Mattresses in Your Home
The average bed holds up to 10,000 dust mites, which can cause hay fever, asthma, and allergies. Mattresses are a dust mite’s paradise as people sweat up to a half-pint of moisture each night and shed up to nine pounds of skin each year while they sleep, so make sure you clean it this summer! Vacuum the mattress thoroughly and turn it over. Ideally, your mattress should be vacuumed at least once a month and turned over every six months to reduce dust mites.
