There’s nothing quite like living in a cozy living room, with the fireplace burning and the sound of Christmas carols playing. However, living rooms are also where we spend most of our time so they can get dirty!
The living room is the living, breathing heart of your home. It’s where you spend most of your time relaxing with family and friends, so it needs to be a clean and welcoming space.
In this blog post we’re giving you seven smart living room cleaning tips that will make your living room look fresh and ready for company again.
Here are Best 5 Tips For You
Tip 1: DE-CLUTTER
The living room is a classic area for junk to gather. It’s important not to let it get out of control.
So consider investing in shelving that will hide away items you don’t need or want lying around the house and actively developing habits like being mindful about bringing new things into your home.
Will they be easy enough to maintain/use regularly without having them pile up on top of each other?
Tip 2: SURFACES
Dust is the number one reason for allergies, so it’s important to keep your living room clean. One way to do this is by wiping down all surfaces including curtains and blinds as well as skirting boards, cornices, light fittings and ceiling fans with a damp cloth or vacuum cleaner attachment.
This will help you cut back on airborne allergens such as dust that can build up in the air-conditioning vents. Especially during hot weather conditions where windows are left open most of time while you’re not at home!
You may also want invest in an air purifier unit or fan which helps ventilate the space from pollutants like cigarette smoke. But also keeps pesky pollen particles out too.
Tip 3: BOOK SHELVES
Dust collects on the shelves of your home and can make it look dingy or dusty. The book shelf is an often neglected area to clean so we will start there.
Remove books from shelves and dust with a soft, clean brush for best results. Because any dirt that you may have missed could be swept up into the air where.
It would become airborne again causing respiratory problems down the line.
Tip 4: VACUUM
A quick vacuum session can make your home feel a bit cleaner. When vacuuming, do not neglect the furniture and corners of rooms as these are often left neglected by other cleaning routines.
Also be sure to shake out any rugs or mats where possible so that fuzz doesn’t build up too much in one place! You may want to invest in a handheld vacuum for those hard-to-reach areas.
Such as under couches, tight spaces between chairs and tables, behind appliances like washers and dryers. Don’t forget about all that dust you’re missing otherwise!
Tip 5: WINDOWS
The good news is that glass surfaces usually only need to be cleaned once a year. There are some exceptions, such as sliding windows or doors and any other surface.
With dust accumulation, but it’s not necessary to worry about these until next winter rolls around again! For the time being though.
Just remember, if you’ve got dirty window panes cluttering up your home interior, scrape them down for an initial clean. Then use paper towels dipped in vinegar water and squeegee off all traces of dirt before they build up on top of one another.
That should leave those walls sparkling like new!
