Winter House Cleaning Tips
Now that Thanksgiving has passed, homeowners are starting to prepare their home for the upcoming winter. One of the areas they will be focusing on is cleaning the entire house to get the area ready for any holiday parties. While some will hire a maid service in Philadelphia to do the cleaning, others want to take on the arduous task themselves. If you choose to take on the chore of cleaning your house this winter, here are a few tips from our cleaners to help get your house looking its best.
Dusting: One of the most notable signs your house needs a good cleaning, is the accumulation of dust. It is more likely to accumulate during the winter months thanks to the warm, dry air. Dusting all of your home’s surfaces should be the first thing you clean. You should work from top to bottom, so the falling dust does not cover areas that you have already wiped down. Removing the debris from your home will not only make your home look cleaner, but it will also improve the overall air quality in each room.
Windows: If you have a fireplace or you frequently light candles, you should regularly clean your windows. While it may not be noticeable from a distance, the windows are likely covered with a thin layer of soot.
Carpets/Hardwood: Once there is a mention of snow or ice, towns will be pouring pounds of salt, which will end up being dragged into your house. The salt is highly corrosive and can eat away at the finish on wood floors, as well as stain the carpets. To prevent any potential damage, you should steam clean your carpets and scrub the floors when you notice salt beginning to build up.
Using these tips, your house will maintain its unblemished appearance during the harsh winter months. Montgomery County, PA residents in need of maid service can hand these duties over to our cleaners at Executive Maids.
