Spring Cleaning Tips for Your Kitchen

Spring Cleaning Tips for Your Kitchen

Around this time every year, many people begin to stir from their winter hibernation and discover a household in need of a good scrub down. While there are many rooms in your home deserving of attention, the kitchen is one of the most impactful locations to start. This room is an excellent selection because it represents a popular gathering place for friends and family while also ensuring your food stays free from contaminants. Here are some of our favorite spring-cleaning tips for your kitchen.

Preparing

Before beginning, it’s crucial to prepare yourself and the equipment you plan to use. Few things frustrate cleaning efforts like constant interruptions to find a cleaning product but preparing your tools in advance helps avoid this annoyance. So, throw on some tunes, remove the non-essential rugs and other objects cluttering the floor, and start with an empty garbage can.

Cleaning Basics

Start by individually removing each drawer and cabinet’s contents, performing a full wipe down of each surface. Starting from the top and working your way down, dust anywhere there is buildup and give it a chance to settle before continuing. Throw away any food that’s past its expiration date or kitchen equipment without necessary pieces and power cords. Next, wipe down all counters, inside of the refrigerator, and the oven. All the countertop items need a good wash, including the toaster, microwave, and coffeemaker. Remember to get deep into the nooks and crannies to prevent dirt and grime from reforming in the same locations. The final spring cleaning tip for your kitchen is to sweep and mop the floor to remove any remaining dirt.

When To Get Help

It’s possible to encounter certain situations that require outside assistance while cleaning. This can occur if you discover a mold outbreak somewhere. Many people suffer from the symptoms of a mold allergy for years before discovering a solution is within their grasp. Another problem commonly found is gaps around the windows, doors, and vents that allow air to escape freely. This is not only wasteful of electricity, but it also can allow moisture to seep in, causing many different varieties of fungi to invade.
