Everyone knows about Spring Cleaning, it’s the most famous time for cleaning in the entire year! But now that summer is starting taper into fall, it’s time to start thinking about how you’re going to keep your house tidy and dust free on a regular basis once everyone is back at school and grinding away at work.
Here at Toronto Refrigeration appliance repairs, we understand as well as anyone else that a lot of responsibilities get swept under the rug when life is plugging along full force. It’s easy enough to gather everyone together and perform a big clean in the springtime or even over labour day; what’s much trickier is learning how to maintain a clean and tidy environment on a day-to-day basis. Allowing dirt and grime to build up in your home is a surefire way to end up with malfunctioning appliances, and while we are happy to swing by and repair an appliance in your home or condo, we’d just as soon see you take better care of your appliances.
You may be asking yourself if we are living in a fantasy world: the idea of maintaining order and cleanliness on a daily basis is the stuff of science fiction and fantasy, you might say. Not so! Over our fourteen years as Toronto’s top appliance repair service, we’ve come up with a pretty great bag of tricks for keeping your space clean on a day to day basis. The key, we’ve found, is habit – it’s really not that hard to set aside a few moments everyday to perform these quick easy steps. In the end, they will have a profoundly positive effect on your life; an uncluttered home means an uncluttered mind and good feng shui that the whole family can enjoy.
Without further ado, a list of tips for day-to-day home care:
Spray your shower daily: Keep a bottle of cleaner in the bathroom and spray down your shower each day to avoid mildew buildup. If you have a detachable shower head you can rinse off the cleaner with it.
Always Air-Dry Towels & Robes: make sure not to leave wet towels and robes lying around. Towels can quickly deteriorate and become smelly if they are not properly air dried after each use.
Put Away the Dishes While You Brew Your Coffee: we’ve found that there is a scientific correlation between the time it takes a pot of coffee to brew and the time it takes to put away a load of clean dishes. If you make a habit of this, you can start reloading the dishwasher after breakfast so that no dishes end up marinating in the sink.
Clean while You Cook: This goes along with the current trend of mindfulness; make all of your movements while you’re cooking useful movements. While the pasta’s boiling and the sauce is simmering, clean whatever peripheral dishes are lying around and start loading that dishwasher (which, of course, is completely empty from the morning!). By the time dinner’s ready, the kitchen should also be in pretty good condition.
Wipe Down all Surfaces: It’s good practice to put some hot soapy water in the sink and wipe down all surfaces with a J-Cloth. You will minimize the buildup of crumbs and grime that often attract bugs. Plus, your kitchen will gleam!
