There’s an old adage which suggests “tidy home, tidy mind” and with spring just around the corner now is the best time to give your home a clean. To give you a helping hand, we’ve compiled 7 tips which will help you clean your home easily.
Vacuum Dirt Away
A good quality vacuum cleaner with enough suction will make light work of cleaning your floors. If your vacuum is struggling for suction, find out how to rectify the fault by watching our “How to Fix Loss of Suction in a Vacuum Cleaner” video.
In addition to ensuring your vacuum has enough suction, you can make the most out of the appliance by utilising the accessories on offer, such as the crevice tool and dusting brush.
Don’t Just Vacuum…Steam Clean
Many of us run the vacuum over our floors to clean them. Whilst this will remove the top layer of dirt, to provide an even deeper clean we recommend you utilise the power of a steam cleaner.
Steam cleaners are proven to provide a thorough clean of the home, removing 99.9% of bacteria, and in our “Cleaning Made Easy with a Steam Cleaner” post we explain the key benefits of using such an appliance.
Smear Free Windows
Cleaning windows is as a chore, particularly when attempting to achieve streak free windows, but it needn’t be.
Using the Karcher WV50 Window Vac makes cleaning windows easy. As you glide the vac across your windows, it will remove excess liquid, leaving the windows squeaky clean and free from streaks.
Make Your Smelly Washing Machine a Thing of the Past
A common issue many of us face with our washing machine is the build up of unpleasant odours. Thankfully, this is easy to rectify – as explained in our “How to Cure a Smelly Washing Machine” video.
There are a number of tips and tricks to remove various stains from your home, such as using white wine to blot out red wine. But, if you want to guarantee blemishes are completely removed, utilising the power of a dedicated stain remover is a must.
There’s a vast range of stain removers available, including the Bissell Stomp ‘N Go Stain Lifting Pads, which make light work of removing all manner of stains; through to the one trigger Wellco Professional Carpet and Upholstery Stain Remover. Whatever stain you face, using a dedicated cleaner will help make it a thing of the past.
Odour Free Kitchen
The kitchen is considered the hub of the home. It’s therefore important to keep it clean and odour free. The key to achieving this, when cooking, is to use the cooker hood to draw out steam, odours and condensation. But, it’s worth remembering the cooker hood filter will need replacing from time to time to keep it working to its full potential.
As a rule of thumb, we recommend for the average family who cook one main meal a day; the cooker hood filter is replaced at least once every six months.
Clean Your Fridge…And Keep Food Fresh
As a result of being known as a reliable and trusted appliance, we often forget to provide the fridge with the TLC it needs, especially the cleaning of the appliance.
Our previous post “Clean Out Your Fridge Day” looks at 3 ways to clean your fridge. We recommend if you haven’t already, you give this post a quick read and follow the advice given. Not only will this keep your fridge clean, but it’ll go some way to helping keep your food fresh.
