While many of us love a deep spring clean when the weather improves, this doesn’t mean forgetting about the housework in the winter. In fact, it’s at this time of year when we spend most of our time indoors, so creating a clean and welcoming environment is more important than ever to help with our mood and comfort levels.
Here are some of our best winter cleaning tips for your home.
Deep clean your kitchen
With Christmas and New Year’s cleaning and cooking regimes out of the way and decorations packed away in boxes, starting afresh with a clean kitchen is a must-do winter task. The festive season is a time when the kitchen is constantly in use, creating extra crumbs, stains and grime build-up. Assess your kitchen and think about all those hidden spots that could do with a vacuum or clean, including under bins, behind your fridge and your hob. You could even hire a professional cleaner to give your kitchen a deep clean.
Stop germs in their tracks
Winter is a time when having clean and hygienic surfaces is essential for a healthy home, with germs and viruses on the rise. Consider all the places bacteria can harbour, including touchpoints that everyone in the family uses, like light switches, door handles and staircase bannisters. These spots may need a regular wipe-over during the winter.
Clean your radiators
With the chill setting in, it’s important to keep your home warm while ensuring all your fixtures and appliances work as efficiently as possible. Letting your radiators gather dust is a no-no. The airflow must be kept clear around them to help heat disperse properly. During your winter cleaning routine, ensure radiators aren’t forgotten when dusting and vacuum underneath them.
Declutter your home
One of the reasons many households struggle with the relentless regime of cleaning tasks required to keep spaces looking fresh is clutter. Items you don’t use, old boxes and other non-essentials can make even the simplest of tasks, like dusting or mopping floors, much harder than they need to be. Consider a winter home clear-out to start the year with the best intentions.
Outsource your cleaning tasks
Many people have New Year’s resolutions to spend more time with family or pursue hobbies, but the week can soon be taken up with work and household chores. This year, if you want more time for the things you love, outsource your cleaning to a professional. There’s nothing better than coming home to a clean and tidy home each week without lifting a finger. The first step is to speak to a trusted cleaning company and request a quote.
