Time to Take Stock of Your Home as Spring Arrives

Time to Take Stock of Your Home as Spring Arrives

No doubt about it, spring is energizing. It’s hard to get going sometimes during the winter because of inclement weather and the desire to hibernate. But now that it’s milder and there is more daylight, it is time to take on those tasks that you’ve been putting off.

As you embark on your spring clean, you may want to tackle a few extra tasks that can help get your home organized and improve the indoor air quality at the same time.

Reduce Dust in your Home

One of the major goals in a clean home is to reduce dust. If you’ve got allergies, then reducing dust is even more important, because dust mites exacerbate allergies.

Your carpets harbor dust mites. If you don’t already, get in the habit of vacuuming at least once a week with a HEPA filter vacuum. Wear a protective mask while performing this job. When you are done, then dust surfaces, trim and blinds with a damp rag. Clean the walls, going from top to bottom.

This spring, reduce clutter and purge unwanted items. They will only sit around and collect dust. Take rugs and cushions beat them outside. Every week, launder your bedding in very hot water and seal pillows in hypo-allergenic covers.
Consider getting an air purifier with a cleanable HEPA filter. There are room-only and whole-home models available.

Get Rid of Pet Danderundefined

If you have a cat or dog and allergies, you’ve got to stay on top of hair and dander. Make sure that you groom and bathe them at least once a week. Keep them outside as much as possible. Limit where they are allowed in your home.

Preferably only let them in areas that have wood or vinyl flooring, so that you can clean more easily. Cover your furniture with washable slipcovers.

On your HVAC system, change the filter every month. A clean filter is important in removing pet dander from the air. This spring get your ducts cleaned as well, which will eliminate hair that has accumulated.

Spring Time is a New Beginning for Your Home

Nature is starting over again during the spring. Why not give your home a fresh start with a deep clean?

Include extra tasks that will help get your home shiny clean. In your bathroom, remove wallpaper and replace with tile. Clean out grout from any mold growth. Clean any mold that has gathered in the basement.

Clean out your linen closet and launder items in there (they may get dusty over the winter). In the kitchen, clean tile grout (walls and floor). Pull out appliances to clean those hard to reach areas. Don’t forget to dust coils on the back of the fridge.

When you are cleaning, use natural products instead of heavily perfumed cleaners. If you have allergies, these strong scents will cause you to react.
