It’s assured by many that winter is the most and -at the same time- the least favorite season among New York citizens. Its reasons vary from having beautiful sight views all over the city and also having difficulties with mounds of snow. Certainly, Winter has its charms and flaws.
Besides, our home tends to be full of clutter since there is no choice but to close all doors and windows.
Are you the kind of person that gets frustrated by seasonal cleanings? Don’t worry even a bit! Cleany has the best and easiest tips to assist you in your cleaning routine.
- Clean Your Radiators
Cleaning your radiators is also important to allow heat to circulate properly. Would you have guessed that dust trapped in the radiator can reduce the heating power by up to 30 per cent? A neat trick is to use a damp cloth and some vinegar-based cleaner to wipe down the radiator. Afterwards, make sure to dry it off and voilà – enjoy a warm, cozy home.
2. Get the Dust out of Your Carpets
If not cleaned regularly, carpets can harbour dust, dirt, bacteria and pet hair. To really be able to enjoy the warm and soft feeling underneath your feet in winter, make sure you clean your carpets thoroughly. Larger carpets or rugs should be shaken outdoors over a fence at least two to four times a year.
3. Check Your Fireplace before Lightning
It’s really important to make sure your smoke alarms are working and in good order to quickly alert you to any danger. In addition, before you use your fireplace for the first time this year, make sure it’s working properly and clean!
4. Clean and Degrease the Oven
In colder months your oven probably sees a lot of action. With Holiday cooking and baking, plus preparing comfort foods for chilly days, it can become quite a sticky mess. Cleaning your oven prevents smoking and fires and reduces strong food odors.
5. Reduce the Clutter
We cannot express to you more: if you want your house to stay tidy between cleanings, organization is key! The more clutter laying around, the more items get dirty and dusty. If nothing else, consider seasonal storage — no need to have swim gear laying around in winter, or snow boots in the summer.
