Spring Cleaning Tips SUNDAY, APRIL 21, 2024 Many people dread spring cleaning, but it’s an important chore that shouldn’t be postponed. With the right strategy, you can enjoy a straightforward and effective spring cleaning process with results that last. The tips below, from our expert carpet cleaners at Johnson County Chem-Dry, can help you not only get your home back in shape for the spring and summer but also make it a fresher and more welcoming place for your family to live in. Start with the Spring Cleaning Basics When it comes to spring cleaning, the first step is to go deep while covering all your bases. After all, what makes spring cleaning special isn’t the season in which it is done, but the extent to which cleaning is performed. This means you’ll need to block out some time in your schedule to get your hands dirty. The good news? The results are totally worth it, and the newfound calmness and freshness in your home will give you a deep sense of satisfaction. Here are a few tips from our experienced team of carpet cleaners to help get you started: Tackle Dust Thoroughly dust your home; this includes cleaning or replacing air conditioning and heating filters. Don’t forget to clean all ducts and vents to decrease exposure to pollen and other airborne particles. Other commonly overlooked areas such as ceiling fan blades, baseboards, blinds, lampshades, and behind the oven and fridge are also key during spring cleaning. Stop the Spread of Mold Remove mold and mildew in moist areas of the home. Mold is a fungus that can spark allergic reactions for many people, and spring is a tough time of year for anyone with allergies of any kind. Use non-toxic cleaning products and make sure bathrooms, laundry rooms, and kitchens are free of harmful mold. Deep Clean Your Shower Give yourself the luxury of a deeply cleaned space in which to bathe. In addition to scrubbing the surfaces of the shower, consider bagging up the shower head in a vinegar bath to remove mineral deposits and reveal the sparkling metal beneath. Get Grime Out of Grout Don’t forget the tile, stone, and grout. High traffic areas collect lots of dirt and most weekly cleanings don’t do the job when it comes to giving these surfaces a thorough, healthy cleaning. The grout between tiles and stone can be the toughest to get clean, which is why we recommend looking to our experts at Johnson County Chem-Dry to get the job done right. We can provide your tile, stone, and grout with a professional cleaning that eliminates stains and grime from extremely porous surfaces, helping you start spring off on a cleaner foot. Call Professional Carpet Cleaners If you really want to deep clean your carpets and eliminate the dirt that has accumulated over the winter months, vacuuming isn’t going to cut it. Instead, call the professionals at Chem-Dry to provide thorough results that will make your home feel fresher instantly. Our carpet cleaners use a gentle, proprietary cleaning method, also known as our Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) process.  This low-water, carbonated cleaning process delivers a deep, long-lasting clean directly to your carpets.  In addition to being incredibly effective, the carpet cleaning process employed by our team at Johnson County Chem-Dry uses 80% less water than typical steam cleaning. You’re sure to love the convenience of our speedy dry times – just a couple of hours rather than a couple of days. Freshen Up Rugs and Upholstery You can also reach out to our carpet cleaners to conduct the spring cleaning task of removing dust and soil from upholstery and rugs. These textiles accumulate much more dander, pollen, and soil throughout the year than you may think. An annual deep clean from our experienced team can make a huge difference in how your home looks and feels after spring cleaning. This spring, celebrate the start of nicer weather by making your home feel equally inviting and refreshing. BACK TO BLOGS
