Nothing summarizes spring cleaning more than what Margaret Atwood once said, “In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.” This is the season when homeowners start to break out their gardening tools and cleaning equipment to shed the ravages of winter. If you’re one of the many people participating in this annual tradition, our expert craftsmen from Handyman Connection® of Carmel Indiana have a few tips for you.
Polish Metal Accessories
Your door knobs and window latches can tarnish under harsh winter conditions. This year, give them a little attention with a cleaning cloth and a liquid polisher. For heavier tarnish stains, you can choose a stronger paste or cream instead.
Wax On, Wax Off
Make wooden surfaces shine brighter with a new coat of wax. Paste-type wax products like Butcher’s wax work well on wooden furniture while hardwood floors (and even vinyl and linoleum) enjoy a good buffing with regular wood wax. Clean all surfaces with a damp cloth and liquid detergent, and allow them to dry fully before applying a wax coating.
Reseal Your Grout
Tile grout is porous and crumbles easily with a little wear and tear. Reapply worn-out grout between your wall and floor tiles. Afterward, give them some extra protection with a layer of penetrating grout sealer. You can ask our craftsmen for their best recommendations.
Dust Away Everything
While winter weather is usually cold, it’s actually surprisingly dry. This means you can expect a lot of dust deposits to cover almost every nook and cranny of your home. As spring can also be the season for hay fever, it’s a good idea to vacuum all dust-ridden articles to minimize those nasty sniffles.
