Spring Cleaning – Clean your Home and your Clothes
After a long winter indoors, Spring is nearly here. I’m sure you will agree that the season offers the perfect chance for you to spring clean your home to get rid of any dust and mess that may have built up during the Winter period.
Spring cleaning is a popular tradition that helps promote health and wellness through making sure your home is organized and clean whilst invigorates the idea of a fresh start now the days are becoming brighter and longer. Not only this, the Spring and Summer can play havoc for allergy sufferers so it’s important that dust and allergens are minimised in your household to keep symptoms at bay!
There may be parts of the house you have neglected during Winter however our top Spring-cleaning tips can help you freshen up your home for Spring and Summer.
Tackle your Winter Wardrobe
Although we do live in the UK, the days do still become warmer in Spring which means it’s time to put away the winter clothes for a few months at least. But before you stash them away in a bin bag, it’s always a good idea to ensure they are properly cleaned beforehand.
This ensures bitter smells don’t linger and will keep your clothes in good condition until you have to wear them again. Moreover, thick woollen jumpers, hats and scarfs can harbour bacteria and dust. If you or a family member suffer from hay-fever you want to make sure this is kept to a minimum so symptoms are not heightened when indoors.
Spring is the ideal time to deep clean your winter clothes as chances are they won’t get worn for another year (or 6 months at least).
Winter clothes can be more challenging to clean than regular clothes so it’s recommended that you use a professional dry cleaning service.
Curtain Cleaning and Care
It can sometimes be easy to forget about your curtains and the fact they also need cleaning! Over time, dirt and dust can be absorbed within curtains affecting the texture, colour and the overall quality. No-one wants drab curtains in their home! Cleaning your curtains is one way to ensure your home looks fresh for Spring and through the Summer.
Effective curtain cleaning will restore the colour, remove any foul odours and dust properly.
Cleaning curtains properly can take considerable effort and it can sometimes be difficult to know whether to hand wash, steam clean or machine wash your curtains depending on the material they are made from.
It’s always best to seek expert advice from professionals when it comes to cleaning your curtains to prevent any damage. Butlerz have years of experience providing high-quality curtain and blind cleaning to customers and will ensure your curtains look beautifully clean every time.
It’s time to clean your carpet
After the Winter period, your carpet has probably been through a lot. From the kids walking inside with muddy shoes on to family parties with accidental wine spillages your carpet is probably ready to be properly cleaned. Cleaning your carpet will bring it back to life restoring its quality, freshen it up and get rid of any dust and dirt embedded in it.
Although there are ways to remove carpet stains at home yourself, if you want the whole carpet cleaning you’ll need to find a professional carpet cleaning service to ensure it is revived!
Wash your winter duvet in Spring
Spring is the perfect time to wash your winter duvet; chances are you’re not going to use it! Washing your duvet will remove dust mites and sweat before you store it away for another year. If you are planning to use the same duvet it’s still a good idea to wash it as removing allergens within the duvet can help you sleep more easily at night.
Washing your duvet can be tricky when trying to squish it into a small washing machine. Stuffing it in will not wash the duvet correctly and thoroughly so it’s always best to seek help from your local dry cleaners.
