winter cleaning

We’ve touched on this topic before, but messy Rockford area winters can be really messy, so we wanted to make sure you knew how to handle it. I mean, one day its a blizzard dumping mounds of snow in 0 degrees, and the next we have a slushy mess of ice, snow, and road salt in 40 degrees.

With this mess comes a whole list of problems for your home during the winter. Do not fret though, we are your house cleaning professionals, and have compiled a list of some of the best tips for keeping your home clean this winter. You can also see our cleaning tips from November.

Winterize Your Entryway

This is an easy one. Get 2 different mats for your entryways. 1 rough mat for the outside, that can be used for wiping off snow, mud, and salt. 1 absorbent mat inside, to soak up the remaining moisture.

Get a Basket of Slippers

What is better than a nice cozy pair of slippers? A cozy pair of slippers that replaces a dirty pair of shoes. Keep a basket of slippers near your front door, for family and even guests. This way, your feet stay cozy, while your floors stay clean.

Clean Your Heating System

Its probably been a while since you’ve cleaned your duct work. With as much time as your heat will be running this winter, it is critical that it is blowing clean air and not dirt.

Organize Your Laundry Room

With winter comes layers and layers of clothes. This means that your average laundry load will be larger. Just organizing your laundry room will help make it easier to handle. And who knows – maybe you will actually enjoy doing laundry now.

Schedule Monthly Cleaning

Sometimes, you just don’t have the time to take care of all the things your home throws at you. That is where a professional maid service can help out. As it turns out – we know a really great one right here in the Rockford area.
