After moving into a new home, you want to do everything you can to keep it looking fresh and clean. Completing regular spring cleaning tasks can not only improve the appearance of your home, but also help your HVAC system function more efficiently and enhance your family’s safety. Here’s a look at some deep cleaning tasks you don’t want to ignore:
The following should have a deep cleaning at least once a year
HVAC Vents & Filters
With the constant changing weather conditions, you may need to replace your HVAC filters as often as once per month. Cleaning your air vents, air ducts, and changing air filters ensures your HVAC system operates effectively and efficiently, so your energy bills are lower. It can also improve your indoor air quality and reduce allergens and pollutants in your home.
Ceiling Fans & Blinds
If anyone in your family suffers from allergies, asthma, or other respiratory problems, it’s important to keep your ceiling fans and blinds clean. By cleaning your fans and blinds seasonally, you’re reducing the airborne allergens that can infiltrate your home and contribute to breathing problems.
Upholstery, Carpeting, and Rugs
You should vacuum your upholstery, carpeting, and rugs often and steam clean them once per year. This not only gets rid of stains and extends the beauty of the fabric and material, but it also eliminates germs, pathogens, grime, bacteria, viruses, and allergens that are living in the fibers. Steam cleaning can even kill bugs and eggs, so you don’t have to worry about a pest infestation.
Cleaning your windows lets more light into your home, but it can also improve your home’s safety. Thorough window cleaning gives you a chance to inspect your windows for defects that could affect their integrity and security. Look for cracks in the glass, gaps, faulty locks, finicky springs, and windows that are hard to open and close.
