When making your to-do list for “Fun Things to Do This Summer,” odds are “keeping my house clean” isn’t one of them. And who can blame you? Your mind is fixated on summer barbecues, poolside suntans and Fourth of July fireworks. Keeping your windows spotless and streak-free? Not so much. However, with all of our summer social engagements stacking up alongside one another, automating mundane (but mandatory) tasks, such as keeping your home clean, can help you spend less time cleaning up and more time soaking up those sweet summer rays.

Here are some tips to consider:

1.      Keep That Shower Clean: Maybe your family spends the summer lounging in Smith Mountain Lake or taking a dip in a nearby pool. All of those trips in and out of the water means more showers throughout the day. And unless they spend the entire day in the shade beneath an umbrella, they’re probably going to be rinsing off sand, dirt, lake water and/or chlorine. All of that summertime shower traffic can cause your tile to get grubby real quick. Give your shower a quick spray with a heavy-duty cleaner and spray it down so that soap scum doesn’t have a chance to manifest. Or if you’re feeling fancy, invest in an automatic shower cleaner to do your dirty work for you.

2.      Mirror, Mirror on the Wall: Summers in the South are known for their humidity, which causes mirrors to glaze over with a gunky film. Keep some window cleaning wipes underneath your sink and give that mirror a showroom shine with a couple of swipes.

3.      Step on It: One of the joys of summer is spending time outdoors. However, activities like mowing the lawn or digging in the garden can cause us to track in grass, dirt and mud. Invest in a high-quality door mat at every entrance of your home and in high-traffic areas inside as well.

4.      Think Ahead: Now’s the time to begin thinking about cold weather maintenance. It may seem counterintuitive, but better now than when that first ice storm hits. Schedule a local professional to check up on your HVAC so you don’t have to wait in line during October with the rest of the procrastinators.

Above all, remember to stay safe this season and enjoy time with friends and family. And if the thought of summertime cleaning seems stressful a midst all of your social activities, then call the professionals at CleanSmart, LLC for a free estimate.

You stare longingly out your office window, hoping that this afternoon thunderstorm breezes by quickly so that you can make it to Smith Mountain Lake in enough time to get in a few quick wake boarding sessions before sundown. The last thing on your mind is making sure your office is clean. But just as the old saying goes, an ounce of prevention truly is worth a pound of cure and protecting your investment via safe summer cleaning practices is just good business.

Keep an eye on your outdoor lighting fixtures. Take them apart and wipe off any dust, pollen and debris (plus those pesky insects love congregating around that bright light.) While we’re outside, turn your attention to the exterior of your building. It may be time to schedule a pressure washing.

Pay close attention to your walkways. Are there any boards that need to be replaced or nails sticking up that could cause damage? Are there chips in your concrete that might cause someone to trip? You’ll want to ensure that your walkway is as safe as it is clean.

And while you’re daydreaming out your office window, check to see if it needs cleaning. Those afternoon thunderstorms can throw all kinds of dirt and debris on your window, not to mention little surprises by our featured friends.

It may be tempting to try to do all of this yourself. However, scaling high surfaces to clean windows or clean out gutters can be dangerous. Consider calling the professionals at CleanSmart, LLC to take care of all of your summer cleaning needs. Our team is educated on the safest, most effective solutions to use to clean a variety of surfaces. Our state-of-the-art equipment allows us to complete the job safely and quickly, saving you time and money.

Spring weather brings about an energizing feeling of being productive. We get excited about previously shunned tasks, like window washing and dusting, for favor of a freshened up home. But before you grab a mop and bucket, sit down and make a list of what you’d like to accomplish. Set realistic goals and take it easy on yourself. Consider tackling the things that absolutely drive you crazy, like cluttered junk drawers and closets, and chip away at your list whenever you have the time. If your list is overwhelming, consider hiring a professional cleaning company, such as CleanSmart, LLC., to help you with your cleaning needs.

Even though the snow falling from the sky begs to differ, it is officially spring. Daffodils, tulips and various springtime flowers are beginning to emerge bringing with them gorgeous bright colors, thoughts of afternoon picnics on the Blue Ridge Parkway…and fabulous seasonal allergies.

If you suffer from springtime allergies, take a look at this list. You’ll find some helpful tips to keep your rapid-fire sneezing to a minimum.

 

At Work:

  • If your employer is up for it, ask them if they’d be willing to remove or replace any old, worn down carpet from your office or cubicle.
  • Keep soft items, like pillows, out of your office. They absorb allergens.
  • Check to see if there is any water damage in your office. Mold likes to hang out around stagnant water.
  • Pay attention to the weather. If the pollen count looks high, consider scheduling outings toward the end of the day instead of the morning. Pollen counts are highest in the morning.

 

 

 

 

At Home:

  • Remember to sweep your entryway and porches so that dust and pollen don’t get tracked in.
  • Clean your bathroom regularly so that mold doesn’t have a chance to grow.
  • Use fragrance-free products. Scented cleaners and air fresheners may trigger your allergies.
  • Keep your clutter to a minimum. Piles of boxes and clothes hide dust mites and other allergens.
