Are you already anticipating spring and summer of 2019? Perhaps you are planning a special event at your house, or maybe you know that the summer will bring many out-of-town guests. Whatever the reason that you are going to do some serious house cleaning, from making a cleaning schedule to arranging for chimney cleaning, here are some ideas that might help you.
Make A Cleaning Schedule - Will you be working on your cleaning project by yourself, maybe while kids are at school? On the other hand, maybe you've decided that you need the extra help that family members can give. There are pros and cons to both ideas, aren't there? For example, if you clean while your kids are at school, you won't have distractions that children can bring. On the other hand, if you plan to do the house cleaning project on a weekend, then kids can get rid of their own unwanted belongings and they can pitch in. Even little hands can do things like cleaning floor boards with a damp rag, right?
If you decide to clean the house by yourself, that's a pretty big job. Think of making a schedule so that you won't wear yourself out. For example, use Monday to dust and vacuum, use Tuesday to clean things like plantation shutters and mini blinds throughout your house, or to wash curtains and get them back onto the windows. Wednesday could be reserved for bathrooms, Thursday could be the day you clean the kitchen thoroughly and Friday could be a day when you assess what still needs to be done and complete those chores.
Hiring Professionals To Help - Have you ever considered how dirty your chimney gets? All you have to do is picture Dick Van Dyke as the chimney sweep in the classic Mary Poppins movie. He has soot all over. More than likely, it's not just soot that is in your chimney. In fact, you might not want to witness what the chimney cleaners will find. Besides branches and leaves from surrounding trees, there might actually be dead birds. Sad. A professional chimney cleaning service will send workers who are trained and who have the experience to thoroughly clean out your chimney. In addition, they will have the right equipment to do the job safely.
Consider also hiring a cleaning service to clean hard to reach windows. Hiring a service to clean your chimney and to clean your windows might cost some money, but it might be some of the best money you'll spend on your house this year.
