Spring is fast approaching; the temperature is starting to warm up and spring bulbs are starting to appear. Along with the better weather comes the urge for some people to Spring clean their houses. There are many ways that you can tackle this and to save yourself time and fuel it is always worth contacting a Llanelli skip hire company to throw all your rubbish away.
Here are a few tips to help you on your Spring-cleaning journey:
First and foremost, you should plan to declutter your property. A good rule of thumb is that if you haven’t used something in the last six months, or they aren’t required for a special occasion such as Christmas decorations you should really consider either donating it to charity or placing it in the skip. Make space in your living room and make three piles of items that you are keeping, those to donate and those to throw away. Once you have completed decluttering one room you can the tidy that room up, place items back away and clear the space on your living room floor ready for working on the next room in your house.
Once you have worked through all of your rooms it is worth looking at deep cleaning your carpets, this can help to remove any stubborn stains as well as freshening and making your carpet more hygienic. You can do this yourself with an at home hoover, you can hire a carpet cleaning or contact a professional carpet cleaning firm. Removing the furniture from the rooms whilst you clean the carpets gives you the opportunity to rearrange the room once the carpets have dried, should you wish to do so.
If your oven is no longer sparkling like it used to you can clean it with a small amount of bicarbonate of soda. Place a small amount in a spray bottle and top it up with water. This way you can easily distribute it around the inside of your oven, but make sure you do not spray it directly onto any heat elements. It works best if you leave it to work its magic over night and then simply wipe clean with a damp cloth in the morning. If you find that there is some soda residue you can remove it by spraying a small amount of vinegar on it and wiping away.
If along the way you find items that need to be cleaned why not utilise the power of your dishwasher to save your hands from the effects of too much washing up liquid.
