Cleaning may not be everyone’s favourite task, however, it’s always satisfying to have your place sparkling and germ-free. If your house or workplace is in desperate need of a good spring cleaning, then you’ve come to the right place. Before you begin, you have to know what needs to be cleaned and what equipment you’ll need to get it done. Not sure where to start? Follow these handy tips so you can have your place spotless in no time.
How to Clean Floors – Hardwood, Ceramic and Vinyl
There’s possibly nothing better than having a smooth, sparkling, clean floor. First of all, it’s important to know what type of floor you have. If you’ve got hardwood floors, all you need is a bit of dishwashing liquid and a damp sponge or mop. Make sure you use liquids labelled for hardwood floors. Typically you should avoid using a wet mop because you wan to use as little moisture as possible when cleaning hardwood floors.
On ceramic and vinyl floors, just some water will do the trick. However, if you’re getting tired of mopping up water or if you’ve got a large area to clean then you can use a floor scrubber depending on the floor space. Using a floor scrubber takes much less effort than using a mop and bucket. Before you use one, ensure sure you get rid of any dirt, crumbs, stones or anything else that could cause damage to the floor scrubber or your floor.
How to Clean Carpet
Carpets can be very tough to clean, especially with those annoying stains that won’t come out. Luckily, there are things you can do to prevent unsightly, grimy carpets. By following these steps, carpet cleaning will be a breeze. Aim to clean your carpets regularly with a good vacuum cleaner. It is recommended to do this at least twice a week to prevent excess dirt build up. If you want to properly remove allergens and greasy residues, then it’s best to use a carpet cleaner. A carpet cleaner saturates your carpet with detergent, then uses a rinse solution to deeply clean your carpet. You can also use it to clean your furniture. It’s best to use a vacuum cleaner before and after to remove dirt and other nasties that may rise to the surface of your carpet. To dry wet carpets, use a carpet dryer along with a ceiling or pedestal fan to prevent moisture from building up.
Best Way to Clean Windows, Walls and Driveways
Cleaning dirt and grime off walls, windows, driveways and even your vehicle isn’t as hard as it sounds. By using a water pressure cleaner, you can get quick results if used correctly. Pressure cleaners are run by either a petrol or diesel engine or by an electric motor that runs a pump to pressurise water. This water is pushed through a specialised pressure hose and lance out a small adjustable nozzle. To ensure it won’t cause any damage, test your pressure cleaner on a separate surface before using it on your wall, window, driveway or vehicle. Once you’re confident the machine is working correctly, start on a small area and then expand out from there. When cleaning a wall, window or vehicle, start from the bottom and work upwards to prevent streaks. Make sure you keep the hose level to prevent water build up and don’t have the nozzle too close to the surface as you may damage the surface.
