Spring is around the corner!

Its that time of year again, many homeowners dread spring cleaning, but it’s a necessary task when you consider how many things typically get overlooked as a part of every-day cleaning. You might vacuum, wash dishes, and do laundry regularly, but there are plenty of other tasks that probably don’t get done.

Here are a few things that you should include in your spring cleaning checklist:

Under the Stove:

Many avoid cleaning under the stove mainly because they know it’s going to be terrifying, and how are you supposed to get anything clean with a 5cm or so opening? However, if you do a lot of cooking on the stove, food, grease, grime and debris all find a way down in those crevices between your stove and countertops. Don’t forget your other big appliances in this process.


Under the stove is a place that is often forgotten

Ceiling Fan Blades:
You don’t realise just how much dust accumulates during winter on the ceiling fan until you turn it on for the first time in Spring and dust rains down on you, not very nice at all and makes for an even bigger clean up job, so don’t forget to add this to the list for Mister Clean before switching on that fan.

Drapery, Upholstery and Carpets
They are in use 24/7 yet they often get overlooked when it’s time to clean the house. Its easy for all your window treatments, upholstery and carpets to absorb odours in the home, not only that, they also get dusty and dirty over time, especially in high traffic areas of the home. In addition to being unsightly, this can also be a potential health issue for anyone in the home with allergies or asthma.

Your carpets and upholstery need extra special attention

Gutters, Fascia Boards and Roofs
Taking care of your home’s exterior has long-term benefits; making small repairs now before the Spring rains come can prevent larger and more expensive problems later. Start by ensuring your gutters are clear and functioning, your fascia boards are cleaned after all the dust from the dryness of Winter and that your Roof is free from debris collected by the winds and Monkeys that have been having a whale of a time on the roof.

Clogged gutters will cause expensive problems down the line

It is often the first and last room we step into every day but also often the room that gets neglected the most. Make sure you thoroughly clean both the inside and the outside of your bathroom cabinets as well as all the shelves and other storage areas in the room. Take down your shower curtain and clean it. You may be able to put it in the washing machine but keep in mind that it might get damaged so read the label first or check out some cleaning tips. Clean the bathroom rugs and mats as well.

Be sure to get to all the crooks and crannies in your bathroom, grime and dirt loves to hide
