Discounted Moving wishes you a happy spring cleaning season. Our team recognizes the importance of this time of year, and asks that you let us handle spring cleaning for you with our junk removal, heavy lifting, and cleaning services. But if you prefer to do most of the dirty work:
Here are a few tips from the pros that will make this year’s spring cleaning more efficient and effective.
- Work Down.
Start from the top of your home and work your way down. Make categories of items that you want to keep, donate, and throw away. Move these items out of the designated room then organize the room, dust, clean, and vacuum.
- Clean the Curtains.
Curtains should be cleaned at least once a year to remove dust and dirt. Pay attention to how your particular curtains should be cleaned. Some can be washed; others must be dry-cleaned.
- Clean the Carpets.
Carpets should be deep cleaned twice a year. You can rent a deep cleaner, or hire a professional cleaning service if you don’t own a machine.
- Beat the Moths.
Cleanliness is the best defense against moths. Moths love closets and drawers full of cashmere, wool, and cotton, but can be killed by washing objects in hot water, dry-cleaning, or scrubbing.
- Flip the Mattress.
Every three months flip over the mattress and switch its direction. This will help maintain its shape.
- Spruce Up the Bed.
Wash your sheets, comforters, and pillows. Pay careful attention to the washing instructions for each item as they may differ.
Once your spring cleaning is done, contact Discounted Moving to discard or donate your old items. We guarantee fast, efficient, and stress free service that will make the start of spring that much sweeter.
