It might not feel like it what with low temperatures dragging on and snow still covering the sidewalks, but spring is right around the corner. Punxsutawney Phil said so himself.
With six more weeks of winter under our belts it's time to start thinking about spring cleaning. But keeping your home in shape means more than just dusting and vacuuming the living room.
Here are the top spots you'll want to pay attention to during these next few weeks while your home thaws out.
Any area where allergens may be lurking
Spring cleaning isn't just about throwing open your windows to let in the warm air. It's about getting rid of the dust, dirt, and other allergens that have built up around your home year round. Surprise: being a winter hermit has its downside.
Go around your home and replace filters including those on your HVAC system, your faucet, and your range hood. This will help keep your air and water clean from contaminants.
In the bedroom and kids' rooms, replace the sheets with hypoallergenic sheets. This keeps allergens off your skin and away from your face, helping you breathe easier and giving you a better night's sleep.
Take a sponge to your walls, baseboards, and outlets
It might sound gross, but the air contaminants your filters don't catch around your house end up on the walls, baseboards, and outlets. Use a sponge or brush with some mild soap and water and gently scrub all your walls and baseboards.
Remove your outlet covers and give them a good scrub, too. But make sure they're completely dry before you replace them.
Don't forget faucets and showerheads
Outlet covers aren't the only covers that need to a good scrub. You also want to clean your faucets and showerheads to keep any gunk that's built up during the winter season from getting into your water.
Start by unscrewing your showerheads, sink sprayers, and faucet aerators and soaking them in a water and vinegar solution for an hour. Rinse them in warm water and replace them.
