The Ultimate New Year Cleaning Checklist

There’s no better way to start the New Year fresh than by deep cleaning your home! A clean, tidy home inspires productivity and mental clarity, which is exactly what you’ll need to make 2019 great!

So what’s truly the difference between everyday cleaning and deep cleaning? Well, a lot of it has to do with finding dirt and maintaining things in places that you normally overlook. So whether you’re doing it yourself or are hiring Atlanta house cleaning services to do it for you, check out these forget-me-nots to help prepare you for a new, productive year! 

1. Clean Windows

Did you know that dirty windows block 20% more light than clean ones? With winter days becoming shorter and shorter, make your days count by cleaning them out. All that’s needed are a simple ammonia solution, a squeegee and a towel. Or of you want to make your own solution, use a 50/50 ratio of vinegar and water and wipe or wash off with a garden hose.

2. Check Batteries

With all the cooking and cozy fireplaces that are going to happen, you ought to check the batteries in your smoke detectors. It’s recommended that all smoke detectors should have their batteries changed out and tested every 6 months. While you’re at it, check portable holiday decorations and anything else battery operated in the house. This type of service is not usually covered by an Atlanta maid service.

3. Winterize your Entry

You’re working hard to clean your home, so don’t let Old Man Winter rain (or snow) on your parade with tracked dirt. Have a boot scraper and a bench nearby at the front door so guests can clean their boots and change at a convenient spot before they walk in the door.

4. Basket of Slippers

Here’s a neat idea. Have a basket of cozy slippers or socks (preferably new ones) next to the door inside. It’s a gentle encouragement for your guests to remove their winter boots after they cleaned them off outside. And who wouldn’t want to freebie soft duds for their tired dogs?

5. Don’t Forget to Look Up!

Dust and dirt are sneaky little buggers. If there’s any sort of flat surface area to be had, you will likely find it there. Now’s the time to clean those things you haven’t paid attention to over the summer. Wipe off the tops of doorways, and gently dust artwork. Ceiling fans are major dust magnets. You can wrap an old pillowcase around a ceiling fan blade and wipe it with the top end to help catch dust. Baseboards and behind furtuture are infamous spots, too. If an area is not easy to reach for you, ask your Atlanta house cleaning service to help you.
