Get Your Home Ready for Back to School
Summer is coming to and end, the kids are heading back to school and soon you’ll be left with a quiet and let’s face it, messy household. Their return to school presents a great opportunity – to get your home cleaned before the cooler months settle in. Are you ready to get started?
Organize and Declutter
Unnecessary objects can accumulate quickly. Sort through your belongings, clothes and anything you no longer use or need. Not only will this create more space, but eliminating these items will limit the amount of dirt buildup in your home. Decluttering is a good exercise for the whole family!
Kids Cleaning Checklist
To hold your kids accountable for their chores, create a list of cleaning tasks to be accomplished every month. Include weekly room cleanings and household chores. To keep them motivated, you can establish an award system.
Clean those appliances used on a regular basis to remove any dirt, built-up residue and unpleasant odours. Appliances such as washing machines and dishwashers should be a top priority. The end result? More effective machines.
Carpet and Upholstery
During the summer, with guests coming and going, it’s easy to bring in dirt and allergens like pollen. Those particles then settle into your home, specifically on carpeting and furniture. We recommend cleaning these at the end of every summer. For best results give Winmar a call – we provide professional carpet and furniture cleaning services.
Windows and Blinds
Dust and dirt can easily accumulate on windows and blinds in your home. To keep the mess at bay, we recommend wiping them down once a month. Use a one-part water, one-part vinegar solution or liquid dish soap to clean away any dirt and stains that have built-up over the summer.
Keep these tips in mind as you prepare for the crisp fall air ahead. If your busy schedule prevents you from following through with these tasks, contact your local Winmar office and we’ll be happy to help out.
