A Cleaning Routine You Will Want To Stick To in 2021
As soon as the year begins, it also comes to an end, how quickly has it flown by? 2020 has been a tough year but we remain positive and hopeful for 2021 to bring some good news and prosper for all.
To kick off 2021 we want to offer our annual cleaning routine, that all homes in the UK should consider! Planning ahead and understanding the potential disasters that each season poses can save a lot of stress and money. Organisation is key!
As Spring is only hiding around the corner, it’s time to get rid of moss and algae that’s grown on pathways and walkways around your home or business property. Pressure washing your patio (requires a lot of elbow grease) or arranging for a professional patio cleaning service can help to avoid surfaces becoming overly slippery and hazardous, not to mention how your patio will be the talk of the town!
The term Spring cleaning comes to mind, as it is the perfect time to get rid of any dust and dirt of winter, to scrub away the dark gloomy nights and say hello to the fresh, new seasonal air with a good spring clean. You could choose to carry out a spring clean yourself, but if time is tight, or you aren’t able to carry out a thorough clean of your home, Rainbow International can come out to your home and carry out a full spring clean.
Tend to any obvious signs of damp in your home or business premises and arrange for any roof repairs to be carried out whilst the weather is still good. If you are struggling to find the cause of any damp, Rainbow International can use a number of different leak detection solutions to help you identify exactly where the moisture is coming from, as well as a comprehensive damp removal service.
After a long summer of enjoying the outdoors and tracking in various dirt and germs on shoes traipsing through the house, it may be time for a thorough carpet clean to get rid of any dirt that’s become deeply embedded in your carpet fibres, removing any health risks and odours. You can clean your own carpets using some of our tips, but commercial carpet cleaners, like the ones that Rainbow’s carpet cleaning team use, are able to clean more effectively and extract dirt from deeper within the carpet pile than other domestic cleaners.
Once all the leaves have fallen, and filled up your gutters, it’s time to get clearing them out. By promptly removing leaves from the gutters, you’ll keep the gutters working effectively to channel water away from the house for the rest of the year, as well as reduce the likelihood of damp issues arising. When it comes to gutter clearing, this is easy enough to DIY, however, the height can be an issue for some homeowners, which is why we would recommend hiring fully trained high access technicians to do the job, at Rainbow we have high access cleaning professionals who are trained to access those “hard to reach” places..
Winter is Coming...
In the famous words of Lord Stark, winter is coming and you need to prepare yourself for all the possibilities British weather will throw your way. Ensure all external pipes in unheated areas are effectively lagged to avoid frozen pipes and surprise leaks.
With the short days and long nights, you can use some of that extra time in the home to put together a home inventory. January is always a great time for new starts and a home inventory can be really useful should you ever need to call in fire or flood restoration specialists, or make a claim against your home insurance.
Know When To Enlist The Help of Professionals
Among everything else going on throughout the year, sometimes you just don’t have the time, energy or equipment to maintain your home, which is where we come in. Rainbow International are more than happy to give a helping hand to homes across the UK, no matter what their requirements, we can ensure you stick to your annual cleaning routine.
