A Texan’s Home Cleaning Guide

Whether you are working on home cleaning or cleaning for any other reason, it can be important to clean your home a little differently based on where you live. Texas is hot, dusty, and humid. Because of this, you will need to clean differently than you would have to clean a home in Alaska or Maine. Below are some home cleaning tips specific to Texas to keep your home looking great and feeling comfortable.

Clean Carpets 

When you’re tracking in mud and dirt, you are going to need to clean the carpet often. This doesn’t just include vacuuming often but doing deep cleaning (with carpet shampoo, etc.) as well. Depending on how many carpets you have in your home, you may want to invest in a carpet steam cleaner. However, if you don’t have many carpets, then it might be in your best interest to rent a cleaner, or hire a cleaning service like WOW Total Cleaning. If you want to rent a carpet cleaner or hire someone to clean your carpets for you, where should you look? Searching online is one of the easiest ways to find this. Simply search for your city and carpet cleaning, like Austin carpet cleaning.

Replace Air Filters

Having working air conditioners is key to living comfortably in Texas. One of the best things you can do to keep your air conditioner working well (and clean) is to replace the filter in your air conditioner. Generally speaking, you should replace your air filters every ninety days, or about every three months. This can both help to keep the air quality in your home better and to keep your home cooler. If you are not using your air conditioner often, you may be able to get away with replacing the filter less often. However, check your air conditioner guide to find out.

Wash Windows

The dust and grime of Texas can sometimes show itself well on your windows. So, you should try to clean your windows as often as needed. Unlike with air conditioners, there’s not really a set time when you should clean your windows. Instead, all you have to do is clean them whenever you need to. To get the best results, try to use streak-free cleaners. Another way to get fewer streaks when cleaning your windows is to wipe the windows with old newspapers, rather than with cloths. You’d be amazed at the difference it can make!

Try these three things to make your home a little cleaner. These tips can also make your home less dusty and make the air cleaner as well!
