If you don't know where to start this spring, consider these tips.

Clean Upholstery and Carpets

Fabrics that have taken in a winter's worth of body oil, dirt and germs will require deep cleaning to prepare them for another year. Begin with vacuuming and follow up with shampooing for the best results.  When you're cleaning upholstery or shampooing carpets with a rented cleaner, it's advisable you practice in an unobtrusive area initially to ensure you have the knack of the machine and that discoloration won't occur.

It’s time to pull the furniture out into the room and clean behind couches, sofas, easy chairs, lamps on stands, and other stationary objects. You may be surprised what you find behind and under them or how dusty or dirty the areas are. If it is hard to move the furniture by yourself, you can try tipping it over on the fronts. If this won’t work for you, ask someone to help. Be sure to wear a mask if you have allergies or you will get choked up. Pull the seat cushions out and thoroughly vacuum all areas including crevices. Time your time when vacuuming carpets and vacuum in two different directions at 90 degrees to each other. This will not only clean better, but it will help pull up the carpet fibers that make them look better. It's also important you open the windows to hasten the drying process, which could take a day or more. If you don’t like machine-renting and furniture-shifting, use a professional upholstery and carpet cleaning business.

Seal Your Kitchen and Bath Countertops

Natural stone countertops, including marble and granite, are porous. Therefore, if you don't seal them, liquids such as soy sauce, juices, or red wine can stain them. A sealer repels stains by preventing absorption and causes the spills to bead instead. Although sealing takes place during the installation of most countertops, you'll discover that the sealant wears down. To maintain your countertops in excellent shape, re-apply a sealer twice annually. If you wish to determine whether you require a fresh coat, pour some water on the countertop. You'll know it's time for resealing if the water does not bead or remains beaded for 2-3 minutes.

Clean the Oven

Forget cleaners that guarantee an easy task. You'll find that most cleaners emit harmful fumes and make a nasty mess. Remember, the fundamental ingredient in numerous cleaners is lye, which can burn your skin and eyes; it's typically deadly if swallowed. Consider wetting a pumice stone and use it to scrape off grease and dirt or another natural product. You'll find it's faster and toxin-free.

We find that most people always think about cleaning their floors but usually forget about windows and walls. You'll also find most dust on the floor and other surfaces though not all of it. Clean blinds by vacuuming and wiping down with a damp cloth and vacuum walls beginning from the top. On the outside, take out and wipe the window screens clean. Use a steam cleaner along with a squeegee for the windows. You should hose down any dirty parts of the house siding.
