Winter House Cleaning Essentials
During the gloomy freezing Chicagoland winters, many of us will only see the light of day through our windows in the comfort of our homes. In Chicago, we won’t get nearly as much sun or vitamin D in the winter, which can cause health issues. Throughout the months, weeks, and even throughout the day, your windows will collect dust, dirt, and soot especially if you have a fire in the fireplace or you’re cooking dinner. Since one of the only sources of vitamin D comes from sunlight through the windows in your home, it's important to keep them clean throughout the month. Proper window washing will allow the most amount of sunlight into your home, improving vitamin D intake and your overall health. If you don’t want to take on this task alone, give the experts at Bubbles a call for a professional window cleaning service.
In addition to window washing, additional house cleaning should be a priority for homeowners during the winter months. As you know, allergens and bacteria are constantly flowing around your home, looking for a place to land or hide. Besides hiding under your furniture, one of the highest traffic areas for dust and bacteria to accumulate is ceiling fans and chandeliers. While you may think it’s a good idea to turn on the ceiling fan to circulate warm air through your home, dusty fans can spread allergens and bacteria everywhere. Taking the time to clean your ceiling fans properly each month can significantly improve the air quality and reduce the bacteria from circulating throughout your home. Because ceiling fans and chandeliers are most often out of arms reach, they can be tough to clean regularly. If you’re uncomfortable with cleaning these areas yourself, in addition to our window cleaning service, we would be happy to clean and dust those surfaces for you.
Finally, when house cleaning, it’s also important to disinfect the most touched surfaces in your house. Surfaces like sinks, counters, and doors are prone to bacteria build up because of how frequently we use them. With the regular wintertime cold and flu viruses and COVID-19, house cleaning is important for homeowners all season long.
