All year long you are busy with keeping the family fed and cared for; there can be little time left to take care of your home. Big cleaning projects can pile up until before you know it, winter is here and it is too late to finish certain tasks like cleaning the outside of a vinyl window in Nashville. Even though the weather may rule out easy accomplishment of certain household chores, there are some tasks you can do to make the winter season a little easier on your household. Just a bit of strategic cleaning will have you ready for cold weather.
Assess Cold Weather Gear
Your cold weather gear probably includes:
Get these out from the back of the closet and take a good look at them. How many of them are in poor condition? How many should be replaced or repaired? Get rid of items that are beyond repair and create a shopping list of items that need to be purchased new.
Once you have identified the cold weather items that can be used this year, launder them so they will be fresh and ready for your family members to use.
Clean Area Rugs
Area rugs placed in front of the door or in other high-traffic parts of the home are likely to get very dirty during the winter; give yourself a head start on keeping them clean by washing them before cold weather sets in. Vacuum them thoroughly and, if possible, launder them. Small rugs can usually be run through the washer and drier to restore their original appearance and remove ground-in dirt and grim. Larger rugs are best cleaned with a carpet shampooer.
