Friday May 21st, 2021


In case you are dreading the thought of cleaning your GTHA home, join the biggest club in the world. To get the ball rolling, we have outlined a shortlist of the six crucial spring-cleaning chores.


1. Store winter clothes. 

Now is the right time to pack your winter clothes and put them in the attic or basement or locker - basically, put them a.w.a.y. We are talking about coats, sweaters, as well as other bulkier clothing, which you must assess, clean, and then pack away. Always store your clothes in a place that is clean, cool, dark, and dry. 


2. Wash window treatments.

With proper window cleaning, you will be able to remove the amount of dirt and grime that is removed. Remember to wash the blinds, clean the curtains, and drop your drapes at the dry cleaners. We also recommend dusting the window casing, washing window sills, and cleaning up any window hardware. 


3. Clean carpets and upholstery.

Another crucial step involves deep cleaning all the fabrics that have managed to absorb a lot of dust and germs that winters have collected. Use shampoo to clean your carpets as well as the cloth-based furniture. To accelerate the process of drying up, open up the windows.


4. Wash woodwork, walls, baseboards, and cabinets.

Although the walls of your GTHA home do not look like they require cleaning, they still do. There is enough dust being collected by the vertical surfaces of your home to require a seasonal bath. Make use of a sponge and dishwashing soap to clean the surface in sections, which will make sure that a spot is not missed.


5. Clean light and ceiling fixtures.

For cleaning of the light fixtures, remove the light bulb as well as fixture whenever possible. Use soap and water to rinse the glass fixtures. In case the fixture is affixed to the ceiling, make use of a moist cloth for wiping it off, before you dry the fixtures. Use a rag to wipe the light bulbs. For easy cleaning of your ceiling fans, use a vacuum with a soft nozzle attachment. 


6. Check your coils.

Your refrigerator will overheat due to caked-on dust. Therefore, you must take adequate time to clean the condenser coil, which is typically placed behind the toe grille. Make use of a long-handled bottle brush as well as a vacuum cleaner with an attachment hose.
