Great Rainy Day Cleaning Projects
OVERHEAD LIGHT FIXTURES AND CEILING FANS.
One way to get an instant clean is to clean all of your light fixtures. You will be pleasantly suprised by how much more light your fixtures will give off when they are clean. Ceiling fans also need some cleaning and tlc.
WINDOWS AND DRAPES
If you are able to, wash your drapes and sheers at least twice a year. Some fabrics may need to be dry cleaned - this may need to be done only once a year. You might get by with beating your fabric in between times with a broom handle or even vacuuming them down. Windows need to be washed down - inside and out - quarterly? However, washing them during rainy or bad weather wouldn't be a good choice. However, getting the window sills cleaned is an awesome choice during bad weather.
BEHIND AND UNDERNEATH FURNITURE
If you have children, moving furniture during bad weather can be great fun. Reward your children by having them help you and afterwards they can be rewarded but putting up a tent, etc.
Air filters need regular replacing. Make sure you keep track of when yours were changed LAST so you know when to do it. Air filters are the best for helping reduce allergens, etc. Good news: it takes less than 5 minutes to change!
Choose the kind of bad weather (rain, snow, sleet, hail) whenever that weather happens - flip a mattress in your house. Try to keep a log so you know which one you are on and how long it has been since you did it last. This is a fun way to do something that can extend the life of your mattress.
Dryer vents and ducts need regular cleaning. This really is a must as clogged venting and duct work can be a fire hazard! Depending on how frequently you use your dryer - you should vacuum it out bi-yearly to yearly.
Whatever your cleaning needs are, good luck!
Make it a great one!
