There are so many spaces in our homes that we simply forget to clean. It’s not from laziness or procrastination but sheer forgetfulness. When you deep clean your house, scrub and mop the floors, clean out the fridge and shampoo the rugs, there are still many things you may forget to clean. If you use a maid service in Lafayette Hill to help with the heavy cleaning, make sure they know about the following forgotten spaces. Keep in mind, however, that not all cleaning companies will tackle all of these cleanings so be sure to hire a reliable professional company to do the work for you.
Even though windows are often the focal point of your home, we can forget to give them the good cleaning they deserve. Cleaning the glass is an obvious chore but opening them up and cleaning the outside, windowsill and even the frame need to be cleaned from time to time as well. Your cleaning company most likely knows to clean these areas when they do a deep cleaning in your home.
Your refrigerator and air conditioner coils are definitely something you probably don’t think about. These appliances create a cooling effect by circulating air through the coils. Over time, dust builds up on the coils and decreases your appliance’s efficiency. This makes them work a lot harder. You can do this yourself by unplugging the appliance, then vacuum out the coils. Your vacuum should have a special tool for these kinds of cleanings.
One of the most overlooked areas in our homes is the ceiling. More specifically, the ceiling fans. Cleaning ceiling fan blades to remove dust build up. The blades send air straight down, which creates a cooling effect. If there is dust build up on them they not only won’t cool effectively but they will disburse the dust around the house. Most cleaning services will offer this cleaning in their deep cleaning service.
Cleaning your dryer vent is easier than you think. Unplug your dryer from its power source. Clean out the vent with dryer-vent cleaning brush or a vacuum. For added security, have your vent ducts cleaned by a professional and make sure they are properly installed.
It is important that your roof, gutters, and chimneys are all in working order as well as the inside of your home. Check your roof for damage that may have occurred over the winter. If you think there may be some damage, call a professional roofer. You can clean your gutters out yourself but if you don’t have the time or are not able to climb a ladder, get a pro in to help with that also. Chimneys should be cleaned out yearly if you use them during the winter months.
All of these tasks can be handled by having your professional cleaning company or another professional that is qualified to handle the project. When looking for a maid service in Lafayette Hill to help with these forgotten spaces, look up Executive Maids for deep cleaning services.
