The sun is shining and it’s finally spring. This is the time of year when we fling open our windows, let the fresh air in and tackle cleaning the house. It may seem like a mammoth task when you’re not sure where to start, but we can help. Below we share a quick spring cleaning guide and how to do it right:

One room at a time

Remember to pace yourself, as you don’t need to clean the entire house in one go. Focus on one room at a time and begin by giving the room a simple tidy and discarding those items that are no longer needed. Then, work from top to bottom, dusting, cleaning and then finally mopping or vacuuming the floor.

Tackle those carpets and upholstery

Carpets and fabric upholstery can be given a new lease of life by having a deep clean. This is best done with the use of a specialist machine, and even better a cleaning company which specialises in carpet cleaning, as they have the correct tools and natural chemicals to get rid of any marks and stains.

Don’t forget the beds

Your mattress should be flipped over and turned. Open the window to fully air the bed and wash any duvets or pillows. You can also clean the mattress with a steam cleaner, but it may be best to use a professional cleaner for this task, so as not to damage the mattress.

Wash down paintwork and cupboards

Use soapy water to clean skirting boards and to thoroughly wash down any paintwork surrounding doors. Kitchen cabinets should also be thoroughly cleaned, both inside and out. You’ll be amazed at the number of stains and spilt food that may have accumulated.

Hire the professionals

If you don’t feel up to spring cleaning the entire house, or you simply don’t have the time, then call in the professionals. They can quickly clean carpets so that they are touch dry in two hours, they can move all of that heavy furniture, and they can clean your house to the very highest standard.
