A Vacuum Cleaner on Carpet

Clean all of your doormats

Did you know how much dust one doormat can accumulate in just a week? One way to keep dirt where it belongs is by using two mats. You can keep one mat right outside the door and one mat inside. Every once in a while, when they get dirty, clean them off with the hose and let them air dry before putting them back in place. This will ensure that dirt does not enter your home and you can keep it clean for a longer period of time. 

Dust off your blinds and clean your windows

If you want natural sunlight to enter your house and illuminate it, you should make sure that your windows are clean. Wait for a dreary or cloudy day before washing your windows. Start on the sides that don’t get any direct sunlight and use a glass cleaner with an all-purpose microfiber cloth. Lower the blinds and shades before dusting. Use a vacuum cleaner on fabric-covered shades. Dust off all of your blinds so that the dirt from the nooks and crannies is removed. You would actually be surprised to see the color difference in the cleaned and dirty blinds.

Fix your carpets

If you thought doormats can collect dust, do not get us started about carpets. Cleaning your carpets is not as easy. Hot water extraction is a challenging cleaning task. Some of the things you can do to make it easier are using a portable carpet cleaner with a rotating brush or spraying some baking soda or another deodorizer on your carpet near the smell. Brush the baking powder onto your carpet using a soft brush. Let it sit for 15-30 minutes and vacuum it up with a clean cloth or dirt cup.

Get pest control

We do not know how many critters and insects are hiding in our nooks and crannies. If you have seen one or two cockroaches running around, you might want to call some professionals in order to get your house fumigated from all of these nuances. You can search for 24/7 pest control in order to find good companies with referrals and recommendations. Make sure that you are not in the house while it is being fumigated.

Bring life to your granite kitchen countertops

Clean your kitchen countertops with granite polish to remove stains and make them shine again. For daily cleanings, use a specialized granite cleaner that ensures the integrity of your tiles. The mild formula will cut grease and will remove surface-level stains while avoiding the damaging effects of vinegar or ammonia. Additionally, it won’t leave behind an unpleasant film like soap scum.

Clean your pots and pans

To clean a pot or pan, first, add some water and dishwashing liquid. Apply the solution to the burnt-on residue, then simmer on the stove to allow it to soften. Use a scrub sponge or pad to remove the remaining bits. Vinegar and even ketchup can also help dislodge tarnish from your copper pots and pans! Add a little of the red sauce to your nail polish and add some salt to fix very stubborn spots.
