Today we’re continuing on with our summer cleaning checklist for you to follow. It’s always a good idea to follow a detailed checklist during whilst carrying out a thorough household cleaning schedule. The three we’ve gone for today are less to do with the season itself but more focused on getting those jobs done that are often ignored. It’s quite easy to forget about some of the simpler household cleaning tasks when you’re caught up in the furore of the summer holidays.

Scrubbing Windows

Windows play a huge role during the summer, especially if you own a conservatory. Windows provide us with the stunning natural light that we love to bask in during the warmer weather. It also creates a pleasant homely atmosphere throughout your home. However, windows need to be cleaned as much as any other household furnishing or appliance, as any dirt marks or stains can really show up when the sun is shining on them. Make sure you clean the windows on both the inside and outside using your preferred window cleaning solution. Try and wipe horizontally on one side and vertically on the other so that you can clearly see which side needs a few final touches. It’s also vital to wipe away any dust particles and cobwebs before applying the solution.

Cleaning the Garage

If you have a garage then this is one that will apply to you. Garages provide plenty of space for all kinds of things, from carrying out DIY work, storing vehicles and carrying out important maintenance work to music practice, home gyms and much more. It’s always a good idea to keep your garage in top shape for whatever project comes next and with the weather at its best throughout the summer, there’s no better time to organise shelves, sweep away dust and throw out any loose item.

Cleaning Sliding Doors

Many people have sliding doors in their property which require extra attention due to their regular use throughout the summer. If you have other forms of patio doors that are also regularly used, this tip will apply to you as well. The sliding mechanism on any sliding patio door can cause dirt from outdoors to get caught in the grooves, which can make it difficult to open them smoothly. You can use a stick or screwdriver wrapped in cloth to scrub away at any hardened dirt or you can apply some cleaning solutions in the grooves to loosen mud.
