You’ve completed your home renovations and can’t wait to have the house to yourself again. With the tradespeople gone and cleaned up, it’s started to feel like home again. But there’s always a lingering of drywall, dust, and wood that seems to hang around. How do you get rid of that and get your home to feeling new again? We’ve outlined some of our top home and steam cleaning tips below so you can start enjoying your new home renovations.
Vacuum and wipe down all surfaces
When you initially start the cleaning process, start from the top down. Start by vacuuming the ceiling fans and tops of cabinets, before moving down to items that are at eye level. We recommend starting with vacuuming so you can suck up all of the dust instead of merely relocating it elsewhere. You can vacuum walls, cabinets, couches – anywhere the dust can settle. If possible, use a bristle brush attachment to do this so you don’t scratch the paint. After this step, you can move on to dusting and wiping down the surfaces with a wet cloth. Again, make sure you work from the top down so the dust doesn’t resettle on your clean floors.
Clean out your air filters
Construction causes a lot of dust and floating particles in the air. And if you haven’t cleaned out your air filters recently, they will certainly need a refresh or even a replacement after such heavy usage. Depending on how much work was done, you may want to think about this as a two-step process – once as an initial cleaning of the filters, and then again in a few weeks after all of the remaining dust particles have resettled and kicked back into the air from cleaning. This is an important step to help keep you and your family healthy by maintaining good air quality and flow in the house.
Schedule your next steam cleaning in Perth
Tradespeople always set down tarps and paper on the floor so they don’t ruin any of your surfaces. However, there’s always gaps, tears or other ways for those surfaces to catch the construction debris. Carpets are known for trapping bacteria, dust and other harmful particles inside. Tackle your carpet cleaning sooner rather than later so you can restore your home back to where it was. We’ve found that the most effective way to do this is through professional steam cleaning as it allows for a deep and thorough clean of the carpet fibres.
By methodically working through these steps, your home will feel good as new again. If you have any questions about our steam cleaning or split system cleaning services in Perth, don’t hesitate to reach out. You can call us on 0400 634 609 or leave us a message HERE.
