Dusting skirting boards

Skirting boards often get forgotten about as they are hard to see. This also means that lots of dust tends to build up on them before they get cleaned. 

However, cleaning them can be difficult as they are very low down. As skirting boards are a feature throughout the home, there will be lots of them to clean throughout your property, too.  

Wiping them down with a microfibre cloth can quickly get rid of any dust, particularly as its electrostatic properties attract dust. To avoid bending down, attach the cloth to a mop or pole. 

Cleaning out the bin

Bins provide germs with the moisture, warmth, and nutrients they need to thrive. Thorough, regular cleaning is essential to get rid of them, as well as any foul odours they produce. But cleaning inside the bin can be hard, particularly if it is a tall bin. 

It is recommended that you hose down your wheelie bin after collection day. You should also make sure food waste is wrapped up before you throw it away to minimise how much leaks out into the bin. 

Deep cleaning the microwave

Microwaves are notoriously hard to clean as any spilled food can end up being reheated and dried out with use, turning it into a stubborn stain. There are also looks of nooks and crannies that are difficult to get into. 

A popular cleaning hack is putting a cup of water mixed with vinegar in a bowl and microwaving it for several minutes. After the water is boiling and the window has steamed up, you should be able to simply wipe off any grease and stains. 

Cleaning under the sofa cushions

Plenty of dust, crumbs, and lost possessions end up tucked away inside the couch. But physically taking off the cushions and removing all the debris can be difficult and tedious. 

Firstly, always use a dry cloth to remove dust from timber and metal. Then, use a vacuum to get rid of all the debris from underneath the cushions. Vacuum extensions can ensure you get into those crevices, too. 

Some problems require professional cleaners, like mould or fire damage restoration. ICE Cleaning’s technicians can quickly restore your property a safe, clean space.
