Spring cleaning is a necessary chore and a great way to start the season. However, some essential tasks are often overlooked, which can eventually have a negative impact on your home.
In this post, Mass-Tech Roofing and Building Co. lists three essential spring cleaning tasks that you shouldn’t forget.
1. Dusting Door Frames, Trim and Bookcases
The top surfaces of bookcases, trim and doorframes are often overlooked as they are hard to reach. It is important to dust off these surfaces as they tend to accumulate a lot of dirt, especially if you weren’t able to clean them at all during the previous seasons. A good microfiber cloth will make the task easier as dust clings to this type of cloth much easier. Additionally, if you’re planning to clean all the trim that are hard to reach, you can tie a microfiber cloth on one end of a stick using a rubber band. This makeshift tool will help you clean tight areas and spaces.
2. Clean Out Your Gutters
Most homeowners overlook gutters until they break down or the roof begins to leak. Cleaning your gutters doesn’t only improve their appearance, but it will also ensure that your gutter system performs properly. Regular inspections and repairs also reduce gutter and roof damage, and adding gutter protection can improve the durability and longevity of your gutters even more.
3. Cleaning Areas Around Electronics
Dust can settle anywhere in your home, but it’s more common on electronic gadgets like your television. This is because heavy-duty electrical equipment and appliances have exhaust fans that draw in air to maintain a consistent temperature. Aside from that, these electronic gadgets are charged, either positively or negatively, attracting dust particles with the opposite charge. As a result, they collect dust more quickly than the rest of your home. Wipe, vacuum and dust your devices regularly to lessen the accumulation of dust and reduce health problems such as allergies.
