Spring Cleaning – Vents & Accessories
This is another thing we don’t think to clean! (At least me… isn’t this gross?) Check your furnace filter first. More than likely it needs to be changed. Be sure to check your furnace filter. From what I have read the 1″ filters should be changed every month and 4″ ones are every 3 months. But there is much debate about that.
This doesn’t have to be hard to do. I again suggest making a sink full of hot soapy water. Arm yourself with a Phillips head screw driver and start going to the rooms that have the vents and take them off the wall.
Wash them and use a scrubby brush (but one that isn’t too course, you don’t want to scratch off any pain)
Make sure to dry it well.
Also get a rag and or your vacuum wand and clean inside the area of the vent.
Replace the vent and look how much nicer it looks!
There are so many things around our house that get dirty and dusty. I have a glass candle tube on my mantel and it was filthy too!
Instead of just dusting it like I normally do… This got a good hot soapy water bath along with all of the rocks inside it .
Now look at the difference just a little soap and water can make! You can also use a vinegar water mixture instead of soapy water if you’d prefer.
What can you find around your house that you don’t normally think of really cleaning well?
Get that soapy water going again and get a screw driver and tackle those vents.. and then let me know what other items you cleaned for spring!
