A widely forgotten area to clean; light fixtures, ceiling fans and high corners collect tons of dust. Clean these hard-to-reach spots with the long reach dusting system; it extends up to 8 feet and even has a closed loop duster to get all sides of the fan blades. You’ll be astonished how much dust accumulates in your lights, but pleased at how bright the room becomes.
Achieve sparkling clean windows with a cleaner (white vinegar and water work great here) and a squeegee, working from top to bottom. This leaves the window glass streak-free. For any leftover residue, let the cleaning solution sit for a few extra minutes and then scrub away with an antimicrobial scrubber that won’t damage the glass.
Dust Down Low
You’ve managed to get rid of the dust up high, but now it’s time to look down and take on the floors.
- Sweep the floors and under furniture. Don’t forget your baseboards; a thin line of dust tends to always build up there!
- Use a cleaning solution (we like to create our own) for mopping the floors. For stubborn spots of dirt, use the scrubber to help remove the stains.
- Let floors dry. It should only take a few minutes until you’ll be left with sparkling clean, glistening floors.
Give Furniture Some TLC
We know how living room furniture can take a beating – whether it’s natural wear, children or pets, couches and chairs can get pretty bent out of shape.
- Take off any couch cushions and pillows. Sweep or vacuum any crumbs and dirt that has made its way between cushions. If you have pets, run the Furlifter Furniture Brush on any upholstery to get rid of fur and debris. You’ll be amazed how quickly your furniture will transform.
- Wipe any surfaces – coffee tables and side tables – with a cleaner and towel. Use a duster to capture dust on book shelves, picture frames or any other items in the room.
