6 Home Cleaning Jobs Not to Overlook


  1. General Cleanup
    It’s important to keep up with a general cleanup on a regular basis. Dust and dirt can collect on hardwood floors as well as bathroom tiles and fixtures. Maintenance is your key in helping avoid the buildup. Be sure to unclutter so as not to miss any impacted spots that become more and more challenging over time.
  2. Remember to Replace Air Filters
    Your heating and AC units will suffer if you neglect changing the air filters in a timely fashion. No only will you enjoy a downgraded quality of air in your home, but you may also find yourself dealing with expensive related appliance breakdowns.

  3. Wash your Dishwasher
    If you let food particles and soap scum accumulate, your dishwasher will not operate as it should. Schedule yourself for a cleanup every now and then. Remove the filter and rinse it thoroughly out then place it back in its position. Next, let your dishwasher run a cycle together with white vinegar for a brighter, cleaner, odor-free and better functioning appliance.

  4. Prevent Pipe-Drain Buildup
    Do not pour coffee sediments or oily matter down your drains or toilets. Place a drain cover over your shower and bath drains. Use drain-friendly toilet paper. If you do notice some clogging, pour a bit of baking soda, liquid dishwashing soap or purchased cleaner down the drain.

  5. Invest in Professional Carpet Cleaning
    Although you should always wipe and hand clean a spill on your carpet as soon as it occurs, an annual or year and half professional cleaning by a reputable company will give your carpets a rejuvenated look as it extends their lifespans.

  6. Examine Your Home for Leakage
    This practice can save you from the aggravation and great expense of water damage. Regularly check tub areas and bathroom and kitchen sinks, as well as walls and ceilings where staining may indicate a leaking problem that needs to be addressed.

Setting time to do the minor jobs can help you prevent major home damage and keep your home’s value on mark. No one could argue – in particular the insurance companies dealing with related claims – that it’s not a worthwhile thing to do!
