Cleaning is something that can make your home feel cozy and happy. However, if you forget about areas that should be cleaned at least annually, the chores can add up and leave you with health ramifications or worse. Here are four things that you probably forgot to clean during your last bout of spring cleaning.
If you forgot to clean your air ducts this year, you’re not alone. Many people fail to clean their air ducts regularly, and the quality of their home’s air suffers for it. If you want to keep the air in your home as clean as possible and be as healthy as you can, you should clean your air ducts at least once a year. While there are some DIY options, many people prefer to trust professionals with cleaning their air ducts out.
The Garage Fridge
Your garage or basement might have an extra refrigerator or freezer for excess food and drinks. While these appliances are handy, they can also be in dire need of a cleaning. Clean out your indoor and outdoor fridge regularly as spills and sticky spots happen. It’s also advisable to do a deep clean of an outdoor refrigerator every few months to find any messes that might be hiding out of sight.
While they’re beautiful, vaulted ceilings can be a pain to clean. The height of many vaulted ceilings is a particular challenge for homeowners. Cobwebs and dust can build up over time. Cleaning your vaulted ceilings might feel like an undertaking, but your home will feel cleaner and probably look a lot brighter after a deep clean of walls and vaulted ceilings.
The Laundry Room
Having a washer and dryer at home is a blessing, a mess can quickly accumulate if the area that these appliances are stored in isn’t cleaned regularly. Detergents and other cleaning products should be stored properly to avoid spills and leaks that can stain flooring or potentially damage the washer and dryer. You should also check regularly for water leaks. Leaks in laundry rooms often go unnoticed, which can lead to mold growth.
These areas are all easy to forget to clean and might seem daunting if they’ve been left alone too long. If your air ducts are problematic or you have mold or water damage, contact AF Environmental. Our team of professionals is excited to help keep your home as happy and healthy as possible.
