Scrub Appliances to Eliminate Bacteria and Mold
Your water utilizing appliances can sometimes have areas of standing water, like in your washing machine or shower. This is where mold can start to grow, and bacteria can thrive there when it hasn’t been cleaned in a while. Don’t worry, it happens to the best of us and a dirty bathroom or laundry room is really nothing to scoff at.
Take some standard cleaning spray, or a mixture of vinegar and citrus peels, and get to work scrubbing that area down. Vinegar is strong enough to kill most bacteria and mold infestations, as long as you use it with a powerful scrubbing brush or sponge.
Clean Out the Filter in Your Dishwasher
Did you know that your dishwasher has a filter? All of those holiday meals and birthday events mean that your dishwasher has done some heavy lifting this year, and that filter is likely starting to clog things up.
Make sure you have your manual in hand to adequately detect where the dishwasher’s filter is so you can change it out and keep things clean for spring.
Clean Surfaces in Your Kitchen and Bathroom
What good is it having a clear drain if your kitchen or bathroom surfaces are dirty? This is a perfect opportunity to do some scrubbing so that your kitchen and bathroom surfaces are clean and look pretty for any new guests that might be arriving this season!
Get Your Drains Cleaned By a Professional
No, skip the drain cleaning chemicals at the grocery store. You don’t need them, and chances are they won’t work very well anyways. In this case, the best thing you can do for your drain system is to hire a professional plumber.
Plumbers can do something called “hydro jetting,” which is a process that involves a metal auger and a high-powered water spraying unit that removes any and all drain-clogging materials in record time. They can be in and out of your home all while you do other things. Then, you don’t have to worry about a drain clog in the near future!
