Doing a bit of spring cleaning? Here are the cleaning tasks you should never overlook: 

1. Cleaning Your Washing Machine

Unfortunately, your washing machine can’t clean itself while washing your clothes. No need to worry though: cleaning a washing machine is easy enough. Just run a cycle with vinegar, and then use a solution made from dishwashing liquid and vinegar to clean the tub. 

2. Disinfecting Your Toilet

Homeowners usually start with the toilet bowl, seat and lid, but forget to clean the base, which is the dirtiest part of the toilet. It’s also not uncommon for mold and mildew to grow near the toilet base. Before disinfecting the toilet base, make sure to wipe dust and hair off using a multipurpose rag. 

3. Cleaning Your Shower Head

Don’t forget to clean the shower head and hose as well. There’s usually mold hiding in the braiding of the hose. 

4. Changing the AC or Furnace Filters

Dirty air filters can lower indoor air quality and comfort, not to mention reduce your AC’s energy efficiency. As a rule of thumb, you should change the air filters every three to six months. If, however, you keep pets inside, the filters should be changed every two months. 

5. Having Your Gutters Cleaned

Clogged gutters can cause rainwater to spill onto your exterior or back up onto your roof, potentially causing moisture damage. That’s why you need to keep your gutters free of leaves and twigs at all times. 

Don’t have time to clean your gutters? You can install gutter guards, which prevent leaves and other debris from entering and clogging your gutters. Keep in mind gutter covers can only reduce, not eliminate your gutter’s maintenance needs. That is except for Gutter Helmet®, the only gutter guards on the market with a Never Clean Your Gutters Again® guarantee. Our patented nose-forward design makes sure water flows in your gutters and debris is kept out.
