Spring Cleaning Tips
It is spring cleaning season, but tackling your whole house at once can be overwhelming. During the winter we spend more time indoors, which allows allergens, dust and mold to thrive in your home. Before you start cleaning this spring, make an action plan. It’s best to focus on room to room to make sure you get your house spotless in no time. It’s also important to make sure you have the best cleaning products to help you along the way. We have tips on how to tackle each room of your house this spring.
The kitchen can be one of the dirtiest rooms in the house. To start you should go through your pantry, and dispose of any expired food. This is also a good time to reorganize your cabinet space. After you are all organized, it’s time to clean your appliances. You should start with your refrigerator. Make sure to clear out old and unwanted food, and clean the shelves. LivePure Magic Clean Disinfectant Spray is great to use to clean your fridge’s shelves. Magic Clean is safe to use on surfaces that come in contact with food. It is a 100% biodegradable multi-surface disinfectant that kills bacteria, inactivates viruses, and controls mold and mildew. It has a subtle clean fresh scent featuring no added fragrance, which can eliminate odors on almost any surface. It is also EPA approved and safe to use around your family and pets. After you are done with the fridge, next tackle the other appliances in your kitchen, with an emphasis on the microwave. The microwave can be a harbor for bacteria and smells. Magic Clean can help you easily wipe away residue inside your microwave with ease. The last step is to wipe down the countertops, to polish off your freshly cleaned space.
One of the most important rooms to clean is your bedroom. Dust mites are one of the major indoor triggers for people with allergies and asthma. According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, about 20 million Americans have a dust mite allergy. Hundreds of thousands of dust mites can live in the bedding, mattresses, upholstered furniture, carpets, curtains and clothing in your bedroom. They feed on dead human skin cells found in dust. The number one way to alleviate dust mite allergy symptoms is to reduce the amount of dust in your bedroom. Fabric garment bags are a great option to keep clothing protected from debris. This is especially true for garments with details like lace, pleats, beading, or other surface treatments. It also helps washing your clothes after taking them out of storage. We recommend using an allergen removing laundry additive to keep the dust mites away after you’ve hung your clothes up in the closet, consider purchasing a True HEPA air purifier. It can clean the air in your dust mites and remove up to 99.97% of airborne particles including dust mite debris. A recent study found cleaning the air in your bedroom can lead to better quality sleep.
The Living Room
The air inside your home most likely is more polluted than the air outside. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air can be five times as polluted as outdoor air. This is due to the indoor air not being circulated as often, allowing airborne pollutants to thrive. Most families tend to spend more time in their living rooms than other rooms in their home. This is why it is important to make sure that the space is clean. The first step to cleaning your living room is to declutter. Clean up items on the floor, and store other items in their appropriate spots. Next it’s time to dust. If you have a dust mite allergy, make sure to wear a mask to avoid exposure to the allergen. It’s also smart to run an air purifier to clean the air. While dusting, make sure to reach all spaces, including wall art and ceiling fans. You should make sure to clean your curtains and draperies. You can wash the curtains according to the manufacturer’s instructions, or you can use an allergen fabric spray. You will also want to vacuum your space, including your furniture and upholstery. The LivePure Ultramite UVC Dust Mite Vacuum neutralizes allergens living deep inside your furniture and carpet. The combined efficiency of the UVC light, covered rolling brush and HEPA filter makes the vacuum more efficient at removing allergens than a regular vacuum. The technology is designed to clean deep inside household fabrics instead of only on the surface. The UVC light kills dust mites and allergens. The covered rolling brush vibrates the particles from soft surfaces without disrupting the fabric, such as a made bed. The true HEPA filter then captures 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns from the air.
The last room to tackle in the house is the bathroom. While this may be the smallest room, it can also be the dirtiest. Due to water, steam and added grime, your space can easily become home to bacteria, fungus, and unwanted odors. It’s important to have the appropriate cleaning supplies before tackling your bathroom. LivePure Magic Clean Disinfectant Spray is a great all-in-one cleaner for your bathroom. The multi-surface disinfectant kills bacteria, inactivates viruses, and controls mold and mildew. It also works to eliminate unwanted odors. Magic Clean is easy to use with no harsh chemicals or fumes and is safe to use around your family and pets. It’s also important to clean your bathroom fan. Vacuum the dust from the grill and clean the rest with a soap and water solution. Make sure to not wet any of the internal parts. If the grill is removable, soak it in sudsy water for cleaning and then rinse and dry.
