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 Southside Chem-Dry has been in the cleaning industry for years now, and we have done our fair share of keeping homes clean. 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 things you must do while cleaning your home in VA Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake, and the surrounding area this summer!
Give Your Blinds a Thorough Dusting
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.
Schedule a Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning
Upholstery and carpet cleaning in VA Beach 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. With us, your home can be a healthier, safer place just in time for summer entertaining!
Move Kitchen Appliances & Mop Underneath Them
Over time, crumbs, grease, and other unwanted dirt accumulate behind and underneath your stove, refrigerator, and other appliances, providing a food source for insects. 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.
Vacuum all the Mattresses in Your Home
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 spring! 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.
