6 Essential Cleaning Chores to Make Your Billericay Home Shine ready for sale

If you are dreading the thought of cleaning your Billericay home, join the biggest club in the world. To get the ball rolling, we have outlined a shortlist of the six crucial spring-cleaning chores. (not just for the spring) 

Store winter/summer clothes 

Organise your clothes into seasons, pack your winter/summer clothes, and put them in the loft. We are talking about coats, sweaters, and other bulkier clothing, which you must assess, clean, and then pack away. Always store your clothes in a place that is clean, cool, dark, and dry. 

Wash window treatments 

With proper window cleaning, you will be able to remove the maximum amount of dirt and grime. Remember to wash the blinds, clean the curtains, and drop your drapes at the dry cleaners. We also recommend dusting the window casing, washing windowsills, and cleaning up any window hardware. ]

Clean carpets and upholstery

Another crucial step involves deep cleaning all the fabrics that absorb a lot of dust and germs, especially if coming out of the winter season. Use shampoo to clean your carpets as well as cloth-based furniture. To accelerate the process of drying up, open up the windows. 

Wash woodwork, walls, baseboards, and cabinets

Although the walls of your  home do not look like they require cleaning, they still do. There is enough dust being collected by the vertical surfaces of your home to require a seasonal bath. Make use of a sponge and dishwashing soap to clean the surface in sections, ensuring that a spot is not missed. 

Clean light and ceiling fixtures 

For cleaning of the light fixtures, remove the light bulb as well as fixture whenever possible. Use soap and water to rinse the glass fixtures. If the fixture is affixed to the ceiling, make use of a moist cloth to wipe it off before you dry the fixtures. Use a rag to wipe the light bulbs. For easy cleaning of any ceiling fans, use a vacuum with a soft nozzle attachment. 

Check your coils 

Your refrigerator will overheat due to caked-on dust. Therefore, you must take adequate time to clean the condenser coil, which is typically placed behind the toe grille. Make use of a long-handled bottle brush as well as a vacuum cleaner with an attachment hose. 

Play some good music and begin your cleaning today, and it will soon be over. You’ll quickly be able to relax in a clean home.
