Why should you change your cleaning routine with the seasons?
As the weather changes, new types of dirt, dust, and grime enter our homes. In the colder months, for example, we keep our windows closed to stop heat escaping, but this traps in dust, allergens, and pollutants.
Poor ventilation can also lead to problems like stale indoor air which can result in mould growth. Moisture tends to build up during autumn and winter thanks to the wetter weather which might cause mould in your home, as well, and lead to other issues.
When it gets warmer, on the other hand, pollen invades our home, triggering allergies. Outdoor pollutants can enter our home through our open windows, too.
You must reflect these changing threats in your cleaning routine to protect your health and minimise potential damage to your property.
How to clean your home in the different seasons
Declutter and deep clean your home to get rid of the dirt and dust that will have accumulated during the winter months.
Make sure you air out your property, too, to get rid of any musty odours. You should also keep an eye out for mould growth and have it remediated as soon as possible.
If you have a fireplace, remove any ashes that may have built up with use during the winter. Vacuum regularly, as well, to get rid of any allergens that collect during the season.
Dust is a big problem during the drier seasons, and if not removed with regular dusting and cleaning can lead to asthma, allergies, and respiratory problems. Make sure your air conditioning units and fans are free of it, too.
It is also recommended that you have curtains laundered and upholstery furniture deep cleaned to get rid of any built-up dust.
Deep clean your property again to ensure any dust from the summer has been eliminated from your home. You should also have your chimney swept in preparation for using your fireplace in the upcoming colder months if you have one.
Don’t forget to thoroughly clean your kitchen and the appliances in it, too, in preparation for heavier use in the festive season later in the year.
Your main focus during this season should be preventing and removing mould. Keep an eye out for any signs of growth and have it remediated by professionals as soon as you spot it. Make sure you clean regularly to get rid of dust, debris, and dead bugs that it can feed off, as well.
If you require expert cleaning services, ICE Cleaning can help. Its professional cleaners have been accredited by a number of organisations including Dewpoint Professional, BICSc, and the National Academy of Crime Scene Cleaners.
