Summer is quickly approaching and it’s time to get prepared! Cleaning in the summer heat is not always ideal, get a head start and prep your home for the summer fun! While you may already have a long list of chores, you might be missing some important spots. This list will help make sure your home is in tip-top shape for summer and your homes maintenance is the last thing you need to worry about!
Clean The Air Conditioning Filter
During the summer it is essential to have the air conditioning fully functional. This is the most important item on the list! Having a clogged and dirty with dust and dirt will lead to less effective air conditioning, or worse, a broken air conditioning system. You can’t be left in the hot, uncomfortable summer heat in your own home! Simply clean the filter with warm soapy water or with a vacuum cleaner.
Clean & Reverse The Fans
Fans can collect a large amount of dust and pollen, without the proper cleaning fans will continue to spread the dust and pollen around your home. Having additional dust and pollen in your home can enhance the already bad summer allergies and hay fever symptoms! When cleaning the fans, make sure to also change the direction of the fan to counterclockwise. This tip helps to push the cold air down ultimately saving you money on energy costs by making your air conditioner more effective.
Wash The Windows & Window Screens
Take advantage of the good weather and spend some time cleaning your windows. Have your windows nice and spotless to let in that summer sunshine! If it’s been a while since you cleaned your windows, opt for soapy water and a sponge instead of just relying on window cleaner. Cleaning your window screens is also an important step during the summer when your windows are open more and the humidity can encourage mold growth. Take the time to clean up your window screens and enjoy the fresh air!
Clear Out The Freezer
Clearing our your freezer is not only useful but it will also cool you down in the process! Empty out your freezer and remove all the built up frost with some hot water and a scraper, along with cleaning up any liquid or food spills. Also, clear out room in your freezer to make way for the summer essentials! Throw out anything with obvious signs of freezer burn like grayish-brown spots and thick layers of frost. If anything is open, it’s probably best to ditch it. Or, if you no longer need something, toss it!
