4 Cleaning Hacks to Try this Spring

4 Cleaning Hacks to Try this Spring

It’s hard to believe that spring has arrived, and now is the perfect time to start thinking about doing a little deep cleaning to your home. No matter how hard we want to believe that our homes could never be that dirty but it’s not always about cleaning. It’s about organizing it and more. We at North Beach Realty want to share four cleaning hacks that you can try out this spring in your home below.

Use White Vinegar to Deep Clean the Showerhead

4 Cleaning Hacks to Try this Spring

If you prefer to use an all-natural cleaner in your bathroom, we have the perfect solution for you. Fill a plastic Ziplock bag with white distilled vinegar and secure it over the showerhead with a rubber band and let it sit overnight. The next morning run the shower after removing the vinegar, and you will find that it may spray a little better.

Banish Water Rings with a Hair Dryer or Iron

Did you or someone you know to place a glass full of drink onto a wood table and they have left the water rings? If so, then we have the perfect hack for you to get rid of them. Take the hairdryer on high heat and blow the heat onto the water spots. Within a few minutes, you may find that they are disappearing. If that doesn’t work, then you can take an iron and place a washcloth of a hand towel on top of the water spots and continue to do so until they are gone.

Use a Lemon to Remove Water Stain from your Faucets

4 Cleaning Hacks to Try this Spring

Do you have those hard water stains on your faucets in your home, and not sure how to get rid of them? We know the struggle, and we have the perfect solution for you. Be sure to get a lemon or two when you head to the grocery store before trying this out. Take half of a lemon and rub it onto the faucet you’re trying to clean. And voila, the stains are gone!

Dusting Made Easy

If you’re like most of the adults out there, dusting the home has to be the one chore we all dislike. For many times when we might dust, it’s like the dust will automatically find another item in your home to make their new best friend. But did you know that if you take fabric softener sheets that they are a great way to clean your electronics, blinds, and more? Yes, that’s a much easier way to dust your home, and it’s a lot cheaper too.

While there are many other ways that you can deep clean your home this spring, these are the few we wanted to share with you. If you are still trying to find your dream home located on the Grand Strand, allow us with North Beach Realty to help you!

Top 5 Spring Cleaning Tasks for your Home in North Myrtle Beach

Top 5 Spring Cleaning Tasks for your Home in North Myrtle Beach

Now that spring has arrived on the coast of South Carolina, it’s time for a little spring cleaning. As homeowners, there will always be things to do around your property during certain times of the year. Spring time is the best for many different tasks as you can get a head start for the summer months. If you are selling your home this summer, then doing these things this spring is essential to complete these maintenance tasks. Let’s look below at what our top 5 spring cleaning tasks you can do around your home.

Cleaning the Gutters

Top 5 Spring Cleaning Tasks for your Home in North Myrtle Beach

During the course of the winter months, you may notice that your gutters on your home are blocked with debris. While it may not be a favorite task to do as a homeowner, it can help you save money in the long run. A good cleaning of the gutters will help you in the long run so that there is no damage to your roof. Having a good runoff away from your home will help keep the pooling of water from forming at the base of your home. This can be a danger when it freezes or can even cause extensive damage to the foundation of your home as it sits. Just grab a ladder, gloves and a water hose to clean up the gutters.

Clean the Dryer Vents

This is a task that many homeowners forget to do anytime of the year but cleaning your dryer vents can help prevent a fire. Having dirty dryer vents can cause fires and this is something that you don’t want to happen. Taking a look at the vents on both the dryer and where it leaves your home is going to be the key. This task will take less than a few minutes to make sure that the vents are clean and not dirty to help prevent a fire later down the road.

Pressure Wash the Siding

November into early December is when you will stop mowing your lawn, but it’s also time to put the mower up for the season. Now that it’s spring time, it’s a good idea to make sure that you have your mower ready for the season. Check the spark plugs and cables and make sure that the blades are ready to cut the grass for the season. This can allow for a more evenly cut lawn without missing patches throughout the yard or having to go over the same spot a few times. It will also help save you money by getting the mower ready now rather than having to have it fixed later during the summer months.

Lawn Gear Ready

The fall and winter months can be a little rough on your home’s siding and can take a beating. From the rain and cold weather, it can cause for a few things to collect on the side of your home such as dirt, dust and algae. This can make your home look dirty and unattractive and can increase the wear on the siding when it’s not cleaned for months or even years. This can be an easy clean up with a little soap, brush and water hose to get it cleaned up. Or to make things a little simpler than renting or purchasing a pressure washer can be a better investment for years to come.

Clean & Re-Stain the Deck

Part of a good spring cleaning of your home would be to clean the deck of the dirt, dust and grime and re-stain it. This can help give your deck a new look by pressure washing the deck and can help make the wood last longer. Re-staining your deck will also help protect against the rain, sun and other elements outdoors. If you have a screened in porch, then this can also help preserve the wood and last longer without having to replace pieces of the deck later down the road. There are so many different color stains or even sealants that you can choose from, so just head to the hardware store and choose the one you like.
