Summer is in full swing and it’s the perfect time of year to enjoy the sun with friends and family. With outdoor activities back in action the chances of tracking in dirt or seeing accidental spills are higher than ever. Steemer of South Florida is here for you this summer with three tips to keep your home both clean and healthy:
1. Watch your window use:
With summer comes more humidity, which can wreak havoc on your home. An increase in humidity puts you at greater risk for mold growth. Mold spores are invisible to the naked eye but land on surfaces that have accumulated moisture and grow over time. This can lead to serious short and long-term effects, so be cautious on how long your windows are left open.
2. Take care of your floors:
The kids are out of school, the dogs are running around, and your floors are more susceptible to dirt and grime. With the increased foot traffic, your flooring could be taking a beating. Make sure you sweep at night and mop any spills. If your home has hardwood floors, you’re going to want to use specific hardwood cleaner to avoid wood damage.
3. Check your AC filter:
As Floridians, we know that summer means our AC unit is going to be putting in overtime to keep us cool. A dirty or misplaced filter can clog up your air flow and put stress on your HVAC system, so ensure you are properly cleaning and replacing your air filter on a monthly basis. A clean air filter will not only keep your AC running smoothly, it will also improve your units efficiency allowing you to breath cleaner air and stay cooler throughout the coming months while saving on cost.
Keep your home clean this summer with these three simple tips and you’ll be thanking yourself come autumn.
