Your Spring Carpet Cleaning Checklist

Spring is the perfect time of year to have your carpet cleaning done. The air is sweet with new blooms, the weather is growing warmer, and the days are longer. But if you’re wondering where to start, we’ve created a checklist that you can refer to for a thorough spring cleaning. After all, spring is the perfect season to give your home a fresh start. Let’s get started!

Sweep and Mop

There’s something about the cold and dark of winter that just doesn’t motivate us to clean as much. So, if it’s been awhile since you’ve picked up a mop or broom, you’re not the only one. Maybe it’s that we’re wearing slippers and don’t notice the grime, but winter weather conditions can make a mess of your floors when it’s tracked inside.

Spring is the perfect time to sweep and mop. Don’t forget your dustpan and trash bin, and be sure to disinfect all the flooring in your home that isn’t carpeted.

Have Your Carpets Cleaned

Cleaning your carpets is tough during the winter. It’s such a rainy season that it’s harder to stay on top of the mess that accumulates in our carpets. So, by the time spring finally comes around, we’re usually overdue for a carpet cleaning appointment.

But carpet cleaning should be handled by a professional. DIY homemade cleaning solutions can make a mess of your rugs. You need to find the right carpet cleaning company to restore your carpets and get down deep into the fibers. A quick mobile search of “carpet cleaning near me” will give you a lot of options.

Dust and Go Over Surfaces with a Damp Cloth

Dust also tends to build up quickly during the winter. So, take some time to dust off surfaces and furniture with a damp cloth. You can also use commercial cleaners to sterilize surfaces, or wood polish formulas.

Wipe Off Dirt in Nooks and Crannies

Aside from surfaces and furniture, grime can also accumulate in window sills, and on baseboards, or ceiling fans. These areas are easy to overlook, but details like these can really make your home feel a lot cleaner.

Use Vacuum Cleaner Attachments

Before you schedule a professional carpet cleaning appointment, it doesn’t hurt to give your flooring a once-over with the vacuum cleaner. The extra attachments are also useful for cleaning areas that are hard to reach, like between furniture cushions, or around the fridge. If you’re feeling ambitious, you can even vacuum out your vehicle.

Clean Your Cleaners

And, of course, when you’re done with your spring cleaning, your tools and equipment need a break. Clean them, too. This will preserve their quality and longevity. For example, replace your vacuum’s bag, or remove pet hair that’s stuck on your broom’s bristles. You’ll be glad you did next time your home needs to be spruced up.
