Every year, you hear about the famous spring cleaning. Whether you live in a house, a condominium or have a business, the end of winter makes us want to clean every corner of our house, condo or business. That’s why Pro-Sec provides you with a list of steps to help you get ready.
1. Get equipped!
First of all, it is fair to say that you must be well equipped. This will make cleaning easier and more efficient. So you will need the following items:
- Garbage bag
- Scrubbing brush
- Cleaning products (dishwashing liquid, glass cleaner, floor cleaner, carpet, rug and furniture cleaner, etc.)
Next, you will need to choose the room or rooms you wish to clean. Obviously, the cleaning is done one room at a time, so you don’t get lost in the cleaning.
2. Tidy up
Once you have chosen a room, you must start by tidying it up. This means picking up what is on the floor and on the furniture and putting it in the right place. For example, you can put away items that are rarely used in order to de-clutter the room. In addition, this step allows you to sort out what you want to keep and what you no longer need. To ensure that the sorting is effective, you can also ask yourself some questions. Do I need this? Does it work? Is this product past its expiration date? Depending on the answers, you can keep, recycle, donate or simply throw away.
3. Dusting and cleaning
For this step, the first thing to do is to remove the dust that has accumulated on the surfaces. To do this, we recommend working from top to bottom, to ensure that dust does not spread on surfaces that have already been cleaned. For example, start with the ceiling fan. Next, dust the walls and baseboards, not forgetting the pictures and frames. Next, clean windows and mirrors. Finally, wipe down shelves and furniture.
Afterwards, your mattresses, carpets, rugs and fabric furniture also need a good cleaning. If you can, we recommend that you call in an expert. This expert will also be able to provide you with a customized maintenance program to meet your needs. If not, Pro-Sec has a variety of tips to help you with this step.
4. The floor and the garbage
Finally, all you have to do is vacuum and scrub your floors. To finish, just take out the garbage and that’s it! Your house spring cleaning is now completed.
