Cleaning should not just be restricted to inside the house. Especially now that summer is upon us. We will want to spend more time enjoying ourselves in the open air, and so need to make sure that the equipment and furniture we need is clean, scrubbed and fit for purpose.
Of course, the best way to ensure your exterior looks tits best, but with minimal effort needed by you is to employ a domestic cleaning company with expertise in tackling outdoor jobs.
However, if you want to prepare, or even handle the whole job yourself, here are some tips.
Drains, gutters and wastepipes
This crucial job will help safeguard the structural integrity of your entire home. Clear out any rotting leaves, twigs and other visible debris first, using a sturdy ladder to reach the gutters. Then, pour soda crystals down the drain and leave for ten minutes before rinsing with boiling water. This will cut down on grease and blockages. Wash out with water and the garden hose.
Drives, patios and paving stones
Use a broom to sweep away leaves, twigs and other debris. Scrub with hot water or a proprietary cleaner to restore the area’s look and remove any mildew, pollen or fungus. Treat and unwanted moss or weeds with the appropriate spray.
Washing the inside of your windows is a good start, but to make them really shine you will need to look after the outside surfaces too. You can employ professional window cleaning companies to do this for you, or tackle the job yourself.
Always make sure you re using the right ladder(s) for the job and that you know how to put them up and use them safely. Start by removing any cobwebs or larger bits of dirt with a mob or soft broom. After that, wash the windows with a soft cloth and hot water mixed with a dash of vinegar. Dry them, then polish to a shine with a sheet of old newspaper.
Always take time to store garden furniture properly at the end of the summer season. Use a multi-purpose outdoor cleaner to clean plastic and metal furniture. Don’t forget the cushions too. Clean plastic garden toys and equipment with hot water and a disinfectant and dry well before giving to a child.
You can hire power washers, or engage a professional cleaning company to use theirs if you want to really spruce up your home’s external appearance. These high-pressured machines will get rid of dirt you never even knew was there. Always make sure you read and follow the manufacturer’s instructions to get the best results.
