Summer means long, hot days full of sunshine and good times. Soaring temperatures mean your family spends a lot of time outdoors when it’s cool and anywhere it’s shady, especially around the pool. All that foot traffic coming in and out of the house all day means more dirt and debris being dragged through the house. Open windows and doors are great, but all that dust and pollen is blowing straight in the house. Keeping up with summer house cleaning in Arizona is easier when you use this handy checklist:

Essential Summer Cleaning Tasks

A clean house is vital to your family’s health, comfort, and well-being. But, that doesn’t mean you should have to spend all day, every day cleaning. By scheduling essential summer cleaning tasks and mixing in less frequent cleaning needs along the way, your house will be fresh and clean all season.

Floors and Carpets

Your floors take a beating during the warm months with everyone coming and going. Don’t let garden dirt, pet hair, yard trimmings, or anything else dampen your fun. Keep a broom and dustpan, or vacuum, and a mop near heavy traffic areas and entrances. Summer is the perfect time to deep clean carpets and rugs with a steam cleaner. If you leave the windows open and turn on a fan, the rugs will dry quickly and they’ll look great. 

Walls and Windows

Throughout the winter months, dust has settled on everything inside your home, including the walls and windows. This is a tough job, especially if you have high ceilings, lots of windows, or a large home so pace yourself. Start from the top and work your way down, washing the walls with a gentle soap and water solution. Clean windows, window ledges, and trim after the walls are done and you’ll have a sparkling clean room.

Kitchen and Grill Area

One area of your home that you should pay particular attention to is anywhere you prepare or eat food. That means your kitchen, dining room, and outdoor grill area. Burgers and hot dogs on the grill, potato salad, ice-cold beverages, and ice cream are favorite summertime foods, for people and pests. Carefully clean up after every meal, wash the dishes, remove the trash, and sweep the floor to keep pests away.

Bathrooms and Laundry Areas

It’s very important to manage the humidity levels in your bathroom and laundry area during the hottest months of the year. Otherwise, harmful mold and mildew will begin to grow, potentially causing health issues. Keep these areas clean, remove damp clothing and towels, wipe up water messes, and provide good ventilation. If moisture problems persist, a dehumidifier can help.
