When it comes to Spring Cleaning, each room in your home requires attention to detail. To ensure a thorough deep clean, it's essential to employ the right techniques and products. Here's a breakdown of deep cleaning tips and tasks for each area:

Kitchen:

Kitchen:

The kitchen is a great first stop on your Spring cleaning journey. Begin by attacking the dirt and grime from your large appliances. Run a self-cleaning cycle on your oven and dishwasher while you clean out the refrigerator. This is the perfect time to swap out the water filter in the fridge!

Transition from cleaning the appliances to tackling the countertops and backsplashes, using a citrus-scented cleaning agent to infuse your kitchen with a delightful fragrance while removing grease from surfaces.

Once your elevated surfaces are gleaming, tackle your floors with the EasyWring RinseClean Spin Mop. This ingenious mop utilizes a two-bucket system to keep clean and dirty water separate, ensuring you're always mopping with clean water! Additionally, its innovative foot pedal allows you to adjust the mop's moisture level without any mess – another win!

We like to pair with Vileda® PACS Hard Floor Cleaner, a perfectly-portioned enzyme cleaner specially designed for Vileda® buckets. Just drop and mop for a quick and efficient cleaning experience.

Bathrooms:

Bathrooms:

Although cleaning the bathroom might not top the list of enjoyable tasks, keeping it sparkling clean is definitely a must. Start by tackling the bathtub or shower to banish soap scum, then move on to thoroughly sanitizing the toilet.

Continue the cleaning journey by addressing countertop surfaces and sinks before turning attention to often-overlooked tasks like cleaning mirrors and replacing the shower curtain liner – the finishing touches that contribute to a truly sparkling bathroom. Finish up by mopping the floors.

Pro tip: Use a different mop refill for each room of the house to avoid spreading germs from one room to another.

Bedrooms:

Bedrooms:

Give your bedding a crisp clean, vacuum your mattresses, and dust off and wipe down furniture to breathe new life into your bedroom. Foster a peaceful ambiance by tidying up closets and drawers, and donate any older/unused clothing.

Lastly, for non-carpeted floors, use your EasyWring RinseClean Spin Mop to ensure a spotless finish. Switching from the kitchen to the bedroom is a breeze with Vileda Mop Refills – just swap out the mop for a fresh one!

Living Areas:

Living Areas:

Revitalize your living space effortlessly by targeting dust and grime beginning with cleaning your electronics. Follow that by vacuuming upholstery and wiping down surfaces for an immaculate finish. Add a touch of order and style by organizing your books and magazines.

Enhance your cleaning efficiency with quality tools like the Super Angle® Pet Pro Broom & Step-On Dust Pan, ensuring a thorough and effective cleaning process, even with a house full of furry loved ones! This fan-favourite broom is specially designed to pick up pet hair, and the step-on dustpan means no more bending over to finish the clean.

Additional Areas:

Additional Areas:

Don't neglect spaces like the garage, attic, and basement. Declutter and deep clean these areas as needed to maintain a clean and organized home.
