Spring Cleaning Musts

by Sales & Rentals at Abacoa 04/14/2019

Spring is approaching which means it's time to gather your cleaning supplies to get ready for spring cleaning. During this time you'll be cleaning areas in your home that you have overlooked in your day to day cleaning routine. Here are a few easily forgotten chores to add to your list this year.

Fridge

Take time this year to remove all the contents of your fridge and give your shelves a good scrub. Wipe the walls and shelving of your fridge to ensure your food is going back into a bacteria-free environment. Once you've cleaning the inside, take some time to move the refrigerator out of its designated spot and clean behind the refrigerator. Food and other items can easily get trapped behind the fridge and be quickly forgotten.

Drawers and Cabinets

Placing clean dishes in a dusty cabinet doesn't serve much of a purpose. Set aside some time to remove your dishes and kitchen tools from your cabinets and clean any dust that remains. While all of your items are out in the open, think about reorganizing your kitchen to operate more efficiently. For example, move the dishware next to the stove to make serving food more accessible. Also, organize drawers by using plastic containers to ensure nothing gets lost or misplaced.

Baseboards

Since baseboards sit near your floor, they effortlessly gather dirt and dust throughout the year. Start this big task by moving furniture into the center of each room as best as you can. Moving it all at once will make it easier to clean each room without having to stop each time something is blocking your way. Take advantage of this opportunity and also look for any places that may need a touch-up coat of paint. This attention is sure to make those normally out of sight baseboards stand out.

Vents, smoke detectors, light switches

Use this opportunity to clean areas that are utilized in your home every day. Clean dust buildup off of air vents to give your home a cleaner air supply. Disinfect light switches from any bacteria to ensure no sickness gets spread in the near future. Most importantly, be sure to check that your smoke detectors are in proper working order and are clean.

Pantry

Take some time to look through the contents of your pantry for stale and expired food items. It's simple to forget about an undesired packaged food you bought months ago. Once you remove the items off a shelf, wipe it clean of dust and food crumbs. Utilize this moment to organize the things in your pantry to prevent foods from going bad or being uneaten. You'll be surprised at how much room for new food purchases you'll have once it's clean and organized.

Spring cleaning doesn't always have to be something you put off. Set aside the weekend to complete these tasks quickly and effectively. Get the whole family involved by making a to-do list and assigning chores to each individual.
