Spring is the perfect time of year for a fresh start! And what better way to start fresh than by doing some spring cleaning?
“The objective of cleaning is not just to clean, but to feel happiness living within that environment.”
Getting Started with Spring Cleaning
Let’s be honest, sometimes the idea of cleaning out your garage isn’t very appealing on a beautiful spring day. However, getting your home, garage, and life in order for spring is a great way to set the tone for the new season. Don’t drag your feet, take these 4 simple steps and feel inspired to start your season off right.
Make a schedule: Think about your home…What areas need the most work? What rooms are you avoiding? Where do you skip during routine cleaning? Those are typically the best places to start. No matter, where you start, having a plan will keep you focused on the task at hand.
Work from top to bottom: When you think about how to spring clean your home, it’s important to start from the ceiling down. This will force debris downward and keep you from having to re-dust or re-clean your space. If you have a vacuum with an extension hose, use it to get cobwebs and dust from your ceilings and fans first.Then dust your furniture and other items before vacuuming all the dust and debris off your floors. It will save you time.
Don’t forget to clean the air: Replacing furnace and HVAC filters is one of the most important and overlooked parts of spring cleaning. In fact, replacing a standard filter with a more robust one will help keep you healthier as you enter spring. It will catch smaller, irritating particles. Air conditioner ducts build up dust during winter, and upgraded filters catch unwanted particles so they don’t enter your space. It’s an inexpensive way to make sure you’re breathing clean, healthy air.
Your garage needs love too: Your garage works hard, especially in the winter months. It’s your workshop, your extra storage, your mudroom, your home gym, your office, and your favorite parking space. We ask alot of our garage floors, and concrete coatings can extend the life and durability of this vital part of the home. Spring cleaning means it’s time to clean your concrete garage floor too.
How to: Cleaning Garage Floor Coating
Your concrete coated floors are extremely easy to clean, yay! In fact, one of the primary reasons for having a floor coating is the ease of maintenance. Because our coatings are non-porous, oils and other fluids will not seep in and stain permanently. No special products needed here, all it takes is soap and water to clean a Webfoot coating.
One of the most important things you can do when caring for your concrete floor coating is to use the right tools. Because these coatings are typically easy to clean, you will not need any heavy-duty cleaning equipment or products. Instead, it is best to use soft brushes and mops to clean the surface of your floor. We recommend the following tools:
A quality 24” to 36” dust mop can really bring your concrete coated garage floors to life. You will likely find that a dust mop makes quick work of removing dust and loose dirt and will account for a large percentage of your floor cleaning duties
An easy way to further clean your concrete floor coating is with a microfiber cloth or mop. It is soft enough that it will not damage your floor, but it will effectively pick up any debris or dust on your floor. With a little soap and water, your garage floors will be sparkling clean.
For a concrete coated garage floor, a gas-powered pressure washer with a rating of 3,000 PSI and a water flow rate of 3 GPM or more is recommended. Spray directly onto the garage floor and out toward the door, allowing the water and debris to wash outward and away from your home.
