Now that spring has finally returned, we begin looking at our houses and wondering what steps we can take to clean our home as much as is possible. There are so many little things we can do to improve the way we clean our homes.
Cobwebs can impact the look of your home. Whether you are cleaning your personal home, or a local cleaning business looking to clean homes for clients, sweeping out the cobwebs habitually improves the overall state of the home. Cobwebs form when a spider has abandoned their home and dust, lint, and other particles become trapped in the web. These cobwebs are distinct from spiderwebs since cobwebs have been abandoned by the spiders.
Cleaning Out the Cobwebs
Routinely checking around a house, searching for cobwebs is an important cleaning habit. We don’t always notice when cobwebs creep up, but creep up they do. And you’ll only need a few tools for the job:
· a duster
· a step ladder
· an extension tool for your duster (optional)
It is incredibly helpful to have an extension tool for your duster when you want to dust away any cobwebs or other high up places. If you don’t have this, a step ladder that lets you reach the highest parts of the house with your duster will work, too.
Where to Look for Cobwebs
It helps knowing where to look for cobwebs. They typically don’t hide in obvious places. Begin by searching for cobwebs up high, in the corners of rooms, around ceiling fans, light fixtures, where the wall meets the ceiling, etc. Check the nooks that are rarely used or seen: the corners of rooms, behind furniture, and places where extra bits of clutter are stored.
Meticulously check each room for cobwebs in these critical areas, bringing your duster and step ladder along with you. Check the entire room by starting at the entrance, and moving to the right. This helps you go over every inch of the room so that you don’t miss any cobwebs. Work your way around the room back to your original starting point. Don’t forget to check any light fixtures or ceiling fans in the middle of the room. Dust away the cobwebs as you come across them. Use your step ladder or extension tool whenever you come across cobwebs that are too high for you to reach on your own.
If you’d rather not deal with the cobwebs, you can hire professional home cleaners to deal with the cobwebs for you. Local maid services, such as Maid to Shine, are happy to come help with your regular home cleanings and the cobwebs!
