Deep Cleaning Time

We’re coming up on the end of summer. It’s hard to imagine with temperatures still being in the mid to high 90s, but in another month, we’re going to start seeing those temperature’s drop as summer moves into fall. With fall comes deep cleaning to get your house ready for the long, cramped winter. Here are 5 reasons why you’ll need deep cleaning this fall.

1. Bugs

There are plenty of reasons why bugs get into your home. Your kids drop crumbs that attract them. Cooler temperatures are more comfortable for them. They get inside through an open window and can’t find their way out. Box elder bugs get personal satisfaction out of covering every square inch of your home just to infuriate you. Whatever the reason, they eventually die and their bodies will be spread out around your home. You’re going to want to do some deep cleaning to get rid of them. Especially the box elder bugs.

2. Dust

Dust builds up over time. It just happens. Sure, you vacuum your house every week and pull out the old feather duster, but there are some places where dust builds up that you don’t do regularly. Places like under the fridge, on high shelves, backs of closets. While you’re spending more time outside in the spring and summer, this dust might not be as bothersome. As fall brings the cold and winter freezes up everything, that excess dust will become an irritating problem. You’ll need to do a deep cleaning to get rid of it. Then you’ll want to air out your house to get fresh air in. Best take care of it while the weather’s still good.

Do you have pets? If you do, then you know that pets shed. Some pets shed a lot. If you have pets, you’ll need to do deep cleaning just to get rid of all the fur and pet dander. You’ll definitely want to do this before winter comes, as you’ll be spending a lot more time indoors with your pets. You don’t want to have to deal with that mess once it gets cold.

4. Carpets

Carpets might as well be magnets for dirt and dust. Worse, because you’re constantly walking on them, you’re always packing it down. That makes hard, tightly packed spots that damage carpet fibers and shorten their lifespan. This becomes even worse in the winter, when you bring in melted snow from your shoes and salt from the roads. Carpets should be deep cleaned at least twice per year if you want them to last. Clean Freak doesn’t do deep cleaning of carpets, though; we recommend the experts at Alpine Cleaning and Restoration. They’ve been in the carpet cleaning business for over 20 years and know all the best tricks.

5. Back To School

Here in Cache Valley and other parts of Utah, school actually starts at the end of August, just a couple of weeks away. Your kids are going to be bringing home whatever sicknesses are going around, so you’ll want to make sure you have a clean environment for them to come back to. Deep cleaning before they go back to school can help make it easier to keep your house clean for your kids and family.
