The Importance of Annual Cleaning

There are some things we cleaning daily such as making our beds, doing dishes, or wiping countertops. There are other things that we cleaning weekly such as bathrooms, floors, or bedding. However, there are a variety of household items that often get overlooked when it comes to cleaning. One of the best ways to make sure that these spaces actually gets cleaned is to set up an annual cleaning schedule. You will certainly enjoy your Moorpark home that much more if it is cleaned and organized. Below are a few recommendations for setting up an annual cleaning schedule.
January: Clean the inside of your medicine cabinets and toss all expired medications. This is also a helpful time to replace and update over-the-counter medications.
February: Cover all the hard to reach places! Pull out your stove and vacuum up what has accumulated. Do the same with your fridge and washer and dryer. You will thank yourself later.
March: Have your carpets professionally steam cleaned. However, if you have pets and kids you may want to consider doing this task bi-annually.
April: Wash all of your windows inside and out. Make sure that you have your screens washed as well.
May: Organize your kitchen pantry and toss expired foods. Wipe out any drawers and countertops. Make a point to clean all of your cabinets in the kitchen inside and out.
June: Organize the garage! This can be a large undertaking if you have a lot of storage in your garage. Start small and try not to conquer the world in one day.
July: Wash large duvets and heavy blankets that may not fit in your standard washing machine. Make sure you include your comforters and pillows.
August: Go through your closets. Purge any clothes that you no longer want or wear and donate to a good cause.
September: Wash the walls in your home and touch up any spots as needed.
October: Defrost your freezer so that you can clean it out entirely. Clean the inside of your oven and microwave.
November: Polish any antique silver that you may have and wash and dust your china. Follow up with dusting your glass cabinets.
December: Organize all of your personal files and toss anything that is no longer needed.
