After the harsh, snowy winter in Canada, there are a few warm months for us to enjoy. After staying home for a long period of time, no one can wait to start spending time outside again. Even if cleaning projects aren’t on our minds, they are a must though!

Make your house feel cool and comfortable so you are able to relax and enjoy the summer. If you are starting to feel overwhelmed by the amount of things that you have to do, we’re here to help you out! This is a guide on the things you should do to get organized. And you can always call a professional to assist! There’s no shame in that.

So let’s get started on the cleaning up projects to do this summer!

Carpets get dirty (really dirty) quickly. That’s because they experience a lot of foot traffic. To have a carpet in this condition makes you feel uncomfortable. 

Any type of carpet collects a lot of dirt, dust, crumbs, and even pet hair. Eventually, these will start to cause unpleasant scents, stains, and might damage the carpet completely. This is why it should be one of your cleaning projects. A proper deep clean is needed.

After this you will have a fresh looking and smelling house.

The amount of times you need to get your carpets deep cleaned varies depending on your situation. The average recommended time is once a year. But if you have any pets, or if you are a smoker or just have some allergies then you need to clean it twice a year. You can even clean it once every three months. 

The cost also depends on many factors. Some companies have a fixed price based on the room or per square foot. Others look at how dirty your carpet is and the amount of furniture in the room. 

The average cost is $300 for this cleaning project. 

Cleaning Up the Floors

If you thought since you don’t have carpet then you have less cleaning to do, you thought wrong. The floors still need to be thoroughly cleaned. For the same reasons you need to clean the carpet, you need to do the floors. 

Since summer is just around the corner, what a better time to refresh your floors and home. Sparkling clean floors will make your home look fresh and bright. Your house might even seem larger after cleaning and decluttering. Also, after a deep cleaning job, the light reflects on the polished floors which gives your home a polished look.

To have this cleaning project, it costs around $200 depending on the situation of your house.

Make the most of the sunny days by giving your windows a deep clean. The sun is shining bright in the summer so why not enjoy the sunlight on the inside as well. 

The windows will have unpleasant remnants from the season changes. But to do the windows, it’s not an easy cleaning project. It could even get dangerous especially if you need to climb a ladder to do the job. Have a professional come to do this job for you! 

To get your windows cleaned, most companies charge around $279. This price is determined on how many windows you have in your home. A rule of thumb is the more windows you have the higher the price you are going to pay. Always make sure you are hiring the right person for the job. 

While your windows are getting cleaned, there is no harm in checking if there are any damages. You might find out you need to change a window or two. So summertime is the right time to do this project!

Cleaning Up the Air Filters

Summer calls for the air conditioner to be turned on. But if you have dirt built up inside, it will not work effectively. So before you start using it, a professional might need to take a look at it. 

One important thing to get replaced frequently is the air filter. When they are old and damaged, they will make your AC work harder. A rise in your electricity bill will occur and that is totally something you can prevent. 

The recommended time to get the air filters replaced is once a month. So if you haven’t changed them, there is no time like now. On the other hand, if you have any pets, you need to replace them even more regularly. 

A new air filter costs around $10-$20. Make sure you get the right type depending on which AC model you have in your home.

Exterior Power wash

The exterior of your house is something you don’t want to miss out on cleaning this summer. After months of heavy snow and rain, your home has endured a lot. So wash away all the winter dirty and wear signs to refresh the exterior. 

Power washing is the solution. It is one of the simplest ways to get the outside of your house cleaned. To do this job, it’s going to be a bit expensive. The task costs around $600. It is going to be a big investment, but after seeing the results, you will be happy you did it! 

Get the help of a professional to make your home shine inside and out! After doing all these cleaning projects, you will be feeling refreshed and happy all summer long. Now get outside and enjoy the lovely weather!
