Spring is here, it’s time to clean

Spring is right around the corner, which means now is the time for cleaning. Warmer weather and more sunlight seems to give much more energy to clean their homes and cars. We’ve put together a list of spring cleaning tips to help you make the most of your time, working as efficiently as possible.

Tips for cleaning

According to Reader’s Digest, you should start from square one: the doormat. Welcome mats take quite a beating over the winter, leaving them dingy and brittle by the spring. We recommend shaking it out, washing it, or simply replacing it. A new door mat will really signal to visitors that your house is clean inside and out.

Next, clean the fabrics. This includes things like carpets and upholstery, as well as drapes or heavy curtains. Start by vacuuming, but don’t be afraid to rent professional carpet cleaners. You can also do this in your car—start by sweeping out nooks and crannies, and consider buying new air fresheners.

Next, wash the hard surfaces, including baseboards, walls, windows, and more. Dirt and dust can accumulate in these areas, leaving the room with a darker look and a musky smell. By washing hard surfaces, you’ll get rid of the fine dust that accumulates there. Dish soap and a clean towel are usually enough.

These rules also apply to your vehicle, so be sure to clean out your car as well. Now is also the perfect time for regular maintenance, so be sure to stop by H&H Chevrolet today.
