With longer days, warmer evenings and plenty of time for friends and family, spring is the perfect time to give your home a once over and leave it looking as good as new. While no one wants to be stuck in all bank holiday weekend, the extra work-free days make it the perfect time to dig out the cleaning kit.
With our bank holiday cleaning tips, you can get your home looking sparkling in no time, leaving plenty of time spare to spend with your family and friends.
1. Let there be light
Open windows are the best way to make the most of the extra daylight hours. That said, any grimy streaks or fingerprints will become much more apparent with the sun shining through. Be sure to give all windows a good clean – inside and out – for a brighter home.
Don’t forget your curtains or blinds, too! These can gather dust fairly quickly and spring is the perfect time to freshen them up. You could even hire a professional for a quick, fuss-free and high quality clean.
2. Somewhere to sit
Bank holidays – and the summer that follows – provide the perfect chance to spend time with family and friends. Whether you’re entertaining guests, or simply cosying up on an evening, you’ll definitely want somewhere comfortable and clean to sit. Make sure your sofas and chairs have had a deep spring clean – and don’t forget your patio furniture cushions!
3. Deep kitchen clean
Your kitchen is the hub of your home, especially when it comes to cooking up feasts for your visitors. If you wash floors and wipe surfaces weekly, or even daily, your appliances and cupboards should be the centre of your focus.
Open the windows, let some fresh air in and get to work. Clean out the fridge and freezer, sort through all cupboards, sweep and mop under any removable appliances and don’t forget to give your oven a deep clean.
4. Fresh new carpets
Your carpets make a huge impact on the overall look – and smell – of your home. It goes without saying that you should vacuum your home every few days or so to keep your house looking clean. But there’s a lot of dirt that vacuuming simply can’t remove. An professional carpet clean once a year will leave your rugs and carpets looking as good as new. Any tough, stubborn stains will be a thing of the past, leaving you with a fresh, clean and hygienic home ready for the warmer months.
