Spring will be upon us sooner than you think!
There comes a time in our family’s lives when we have to put our foot down and declare an ‘all out’ crusade against dust and grime. This is especially applicable to a home with children and pets running loose at every given time of the day.
Imagine putting on freshly laundered table cloths and seat covers to then have messy hands leave stains on them. What about a newly laid carpet or cleaned rug that ends up covered with paw print stains and hairs within a day or two?
It can’t be denied that it’s not all rainbows and daffodils in a home, especially a busy one at that. But, the need for professional cleaners have increased tenfold over the last years as families are more and more aware of the dangers that having an unclean residence brings. Plus, the toilet does not automatically clean itself, does it?
Unfortunately, not everyone can afford to have cleaners come in and out of their houses day by day to keep rooms spic and span. Also, with work and school as well as other activities, maintaining a home can end up last on our ‘to do’ lists.
This is why planning a regular quarterly or annual spring clean is a smart choice for homeowners. But, how often should we have our home taken care of by cleaning professionals?
Here are some quick tips on the important areas and materials around your house that need proper and professional attention and when it comes to springtime the cleaning will be a whole lot easier!
Carpets are one of the main catch basins of dirt and grime which can easily breed dust mites and bacteria that can harm the whole family. Everything from dust, food crumbs, pet dandruff and every imaginable dirt can get stuck within the fine fibres of a carpeted floor.
If we share our house with pets and children, professional cleaners suggest that we have our carpets treated and cleaned every 6 to 9 months. Pets can leave more than just dirt on your carpet. Our carpets can also host faecal and urine deposits especially if our pet is not house trained. We can temporarily clean by vacuuming but again; not all of us have the time to do it that often.
The air filter
The air conditioning systems in our homes can carry germs and bacteria all over in no time at all, especially if we have centralised Air Con. Therefore, having the filter and the units thoroughly cleaned by professionals is the only thing standing between our family’s health and the next bout of flu!
Having the filters cleaned professionally will depend on the frequency of its use. For the cooler season, it can be checked and cleaned after a month or two. However, for warmer seasons when we use the Air Con more, we have to have it cleaned at least twice in a month. It is also important to have the machine’s coils checked regularly to ensure that the unit is in tip top condition. Not only will this make our home’s air clean and fresh but can also lower our energy consumption.
Carpets and the air filters around the house are important since they cover large areas. RPC cleaners are always ready to provide professional services within quite reasonable prices. Call us today on 0208 994 4778 for more information and a whole lot of cleaning help!
