A clean house is one of the gifts in life that just keeps giving. Truthfully, you have to clean more times in a year than just when Chris Kringle is set to arrive. But the holidays are a great time to do more thorough cleaning for your home.
There are endless home cleaning tips that we could cover, but we are going to stay in our lane and focus on steam cleaning services and other services we are well versed in. Here is how we would recommend approaching your cleaning this holiday season.
You are going to be cuddling up on the couch with a blanket, so that means you can’t use your blankets to disguise or cover up your upholstery stains. With nowhere to hide, this is a perfect time to get rid of those stains via upholstery cleaning.
Carpet & Rug Cleaning
It is so nice to relax on a rug or a carpeted floor during the cold winter months. You don’t need a bear skin rug and a roaring fireplace to have a good time, but you should have whatever floor covering cleaned. You don’t want smells or stains ruining the vibe.
There is a minor semantic difference between carpet cleaning and rug cleaning, with carpets being more permanently secured to the floor and rugs being free moving. In any case, these cozy floor coverings should be nice and clean as you are braving the magic winter months.
If you want to be dreaming of sugarplums this holiday season, you need a bed where you can get a good night’s sleep. And that requires having a clean bed. But a clean and non-odorous bed requires more than just cleaning your bedding (sheets and blankets). You need mattress cleaning!
Tile & Grout Cleaning
It doesn’t have to be snowing for you to have a white Christmas. Get your tile and grout back to their original pristine color. (Which is usually white and not that sickly yellow hue they start to take on.) But why is tile & grout cleaning more pressing during the winter months?
One of the most common stains that develop on tile is mold. Mold travels through spores, so any accumulation of these fungi has airborne irritants that can affect your health. With the cold weather leading to more closed windows, you are breathing in that polluted air without any impurities leaving the closed system.
Dryer Vent Cleaning
During the winter holidays, there is a greater need to run the heater and furnace. What does this have to do with your dryer vent? The more heat going through your vent, the greater the chance that your excess lint will act as kindling.
With dryer vent cleaning, you are removing anything that could potentially catch fire with the excess heat going through the system. But it is important that all the lint is removed from the vent, so your vacuum must be able to run the full length of the duct.
