Spring is associated with new beginnings and annual chore-fests. The beauty of spring cleaning, which often includes carpet cleaning and air duct cleaning, is that it helps to create a healthy living environment. Maintaining a clean home can substantially improve your mental and physical well-being. A clean house may also help to reduce poor system efficiency and, consequently, high energy bills.
You don’t have to wait until spring to notice these benefits, either. Extend spring cleaning benefits by adopting a daily, weekly, and monthly cleaning schedule as well as seasonal maintenance strategies. There are several handy house cleaning apps for iOS and Android that can help you effortlessly create a cleaning schedule to stay on top of things. These tasks and services can be added to your existing cleaning routine.
Beneficial Cleaning Tasks & Services
There is a reason that organization methods, such as KonMari, are so popular. Deep cleaning allows you to maximize space by selling, donating, or recycling/repurposing anything that is just taking up space. That includes items that no longer serve a useful purpose or that you possess multiple of. Once you’ve cleared the clutter, add in helpful storage solutions, so everything has a specific place in which it belongs. You’ll find that this task can also improve your productivity.
Tip: Extend this method to your iPhone or Android device.
Indoor air quality (IAQ), according to the EPA, “refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures.” Sources of airborne particles, such as combustion and aerosols, can impact your health. IAQ can be improved through professional air duct cleaning and carpet cleaning. The latter should be done every 12 to 18 months. Homes with heavy foot traffic or that are pet-friendly or have members with allergies or asthma may benefit from more frequent cleanings.
Tip: Vacuum three times weekly using equipment with a HEPA filter.
Air Duct Cleaning
Whether you’re running the heater or air conditioner, dust and other contaminants can buildup in your ductwork. Over time, this can potentially impact the efficiency of HVAC unit, along with the overall cleanliness of your home. Air duct cleaning is designed to remove an accumulated buildup of pet dander, dirt and debris, and other contaminants. Duct-cleaning involves cleaning all components of your home’s air ducts while adhering to strict NADCA guidelines.
Tip: Change your air filters every 60 to 90 days.
