Spring Cleaning Tips for Your Florida Home

Spring Cleaning Tips for Your Florida Home

Cleanliness is a requirement to keep your home healthy and safe. This cannot be stressed enough, especially during these times when most people are working from home and are spending most of their time indoors. Spring has long begun, but it’s never too late to get the house cleaning done!

Sometimes there might be tough areas that need professional help, which is why there are cleaning service providers like ServiceMaster by Wright who have the skills and equipment to deliver a thorough cleanup. Nevertheless, you can ensure a healthier home this spring through these tips we have compiled from the Florida Department of Health and other experts.

Spring Cleaning Tips

Dust

Dust your home from top to bottom, including air conditioning ducts and vents, to reduce indoor air pollution and remove allergens.

Deep clean your carpets

Experts recommend professional carpet cleaning every 12 to 18 months, or as often as necessary. This is to ensure that your carpet is properly maintained, thereby reducing the risk of replacements. Regular vacuuming may not be enough, especially if your carpet hasn't been cleaned in a long time. Professional carpet cleaners like ServiceMaster by Wright utilize high-end equipment to remove tough stains and stubborn dirt and grime from rugs and carpeting.

Wash your windows

Wash windows on cloudy days to prevent the cleaning solution from drying too fast and leaving streaks.

Start organizing your medicine cabinet

Dispose of old prescription medications as well as expired medications that are no longer used. Ask your pharmacist about the proper way to discard old medications.

Have your home tested for radon

Radon is an invisible, odorless gas that can cause lung cancer in humans. One in five homes tested in Florida has elevated radon levels. Go to Radon.FloridaHealth.gov. to learn how to test your home today.

Clean your living areas

Start by sweeping or vacuuming then mopping the floor. Dust and polish furniture, appliances and other items. Organize items such as magazines and DVDs. Wash all carpets, draperies, and rugs. Wipe down and disinfect highly touched surfaces.

Clean your bedrooms

Wash bedding, blankets, bed skirts, comforters, mattresses, and pillowcases. Rotate or flip mattresses and take the time to clean and organize your closets to make sure that each item is in its place.

Clean your bathrooms

Wash bath mats, rugs, and shower curtains. Wipe down surfaces such as countertops and mirrors, as well as inside cupboards and drawers. Clean the toilet and floors. Look for the signs of mold and have it removed as soon as possible to prevent it from spreading to other areas of the home.

Clean your kitchen

A clean and organized kitchen helps prevent foodborne diseases. Practice proper hygiene by washing your hands before and after cooking and by keeping surfaces clean and disinfected. Prevent cross-contamination by using separate cutting boards and cutlery for meat and vegetables. Clean your refrigerator and freezer and dispose of expired or spoiled food products. Wipe down kitchen appliances, stoves, ovens, cupboards, and drawers.

Check your home for needed repairs

Inspect plumbing for leaks or cracks to prevent water damage and mold growth. Inspect other areas indoors and outdoors to address potential problems before they cause serious consequences.
