We tend to think about deep cleaning our homes when the “spring cleaning” season rolls around, but the winter is a great time to take care of indoor cleaning tasks. With colder weather driving Maryland homeowners indoors for the season, you can take care of some of the most important annual cleaning tasks. Plus, the winter is the season of holiday entertaining, and it’s important to make sure your home is clean and ready to handle the increased foot traffic this winter! Here are 5 ways to jumpstart your winter cleaning.
1. Deep Clean the Floors
With holiday guests and cold weather keeping us cooped up indoors, it’s important to pay attention to your flooring. Carpets and hardwood alike should get some deep cleaning this winter. Take the opportunity this winter to scrub down the floors and steam the carpeting.
Flooring isn’t the only thing that needs a deep clean in the winter. Dust builds up year round in the areas you may not notice. Be sure to check vents, ceiling fans, lighting fixtures, furniture, and storage in order to dust your house from top to bottom and keep those outdoor allergens from bothering your family indoors.
3. Clean the Windows
While cleaning the windows is typically saved for spring cleaning, the winter is an excellent time to take care of this task. Especially since your furnace, fireplace, or even candles can wind up leaving a film on the inside of your windows that can be scrubbed away with a vinegar mixture to increase the sunlight in your home this winter.
4. Keep an Eye on the Ceilings
One of the most overlooked areas to clean may be the kitchen ceiling. After a year of cooking, moisture and film can build up from fumes and smoke, as well as cooking splatter and dust. This can be a difficult area to clean, but hiring a professional cleaning service can help you ensure your kitchen is spotless and free of buildup this winter.
5. Maintain the Furnace
Making sure your furnace is clean is extremely important in the winter. Be sure to change out your furnace filter to keep it running efficiently, improve your home’s air quality, and improve fire safety in your home. When changing your filter, be sure to take a look around the furnace as well. Vacuum up any dust or dirt that may have built up around your furnace.
