It’s that time of year when you can freshen up your home and give it a thorough spring cleaning. While tackling the usual tasks like vacuuming and dusting is important, it’s also beneficial to go a little deeper in your cleaning routine. Here are some ideas from our HVAC service experts in Orange NSW and Bathurst NSW:

Start by changing the filter on your HVAC unit. This will help remove any winter dust, dirt, allergens, and other particles that have accumulated over the past few months. A clean filter will improve the air quality in your home and ensure proper HVAC system performance.

Take off the cover of your bathroom fans and wash them with soap and water. Before replacing the cover, make sure to clean the dust off the fan blades. This will help improve the efficiency of the fans and reduce the buildup of dust and allergens.

Dirty window screens can become weak and easily damaged. Remove the screens from your windows and spray them with a cleaning solution. Let them soak, then scrub away any grime using a toothbrush. Finally, rinse them with warm water and let them dry before putting them back.

Remove any twigs, leaves, or leftover ice that may have accumulated in your gutters. Clearing out the gutters will prevent blockages and ensure proper water drainage during spring showers.

Vacuum the coils at the back of your refrigerator and clean underneath your refrigerator and stove. Dust and dirt tend to build up in these areas, impacting their efficiency. Regular cleaning will help maintain optimal performance.

Set your washing machine to its hottest and longest cycle and add four cups of white vinegar. Let the vinegar and hot water agitate for a few minutes, then pause the cycle to allow the vinegar to soak into all the nooks and crannies. After about an hour, let your washer finish the cycle. This will help remove any built-up residue and odours.

Remove vent covers and register covers and clean them thoroughly with soapy water. Ensure they are completely dry before replacing them. This will improve air circulation and prevent dust buildup.

Empty out all the items from your kitchen drawers and wipe them down, both inside and out. This will remove any dirt or spills that may have accumulated and keep your kitchen organised.

If your oven is self-cleaning, start the cycle when the kitchen is least in use. After it’s done, let it cool for 2 hours and then wipe it down. For non-self-cleaning ovens, mix baking soda with water, spray it all over the oven, let it soak, then scrape off any debris and wipe it clean.

Spray glass cleaner on your mirrors and use a piece of newspaper to wipe it away. Newspaper absorbs more effectively and helps prevent streaks for a clear reflection.

Use warm water and dishwashing detergent to wash your walls. Dust the walls thoroughly before wiping them down with the soapy mixture. Clean a small area at a time, then wipe down with water to avoid streaks.

Remove the housing of your dehumidifier and allow the unit to dry. Vacuum all crevices and surfaces to remove any dust or debris that may have accumulated.

Alternatively, if you prefer to sit back and relax, you can hire a professional cleaning service to handle all these tasks for you. They have the expertise and equipment to ensure a thorough and efficient spring cleaning, allowing you to enjoy the upcoming summer season in a clean and fresh home.
