6 Tips for Cleaning Your Home

  1. Welcome Home


Spruce up your outdoor welcome mat by hosing it down and letting it air-dry. Another effective way of stopping dirt in its tracks is to use a mat on the inside of your door as well. If you already have one, vacuum both sides of it to really get the dirt out for a new season of visitors.


  1. Dust It Off


Even the most simple of tasks can make a big impact. Dusting off the surfaces of your home, from your coffee table to your kitchen counters to your window sills, can give your entire home a clean aura and feel. With a cloth, store-bought duster, or dusting gloves, get around places like coffee maker nooks, picture frames, and vases.


  1. Scrub it Out


Believe it not, your trash can needs some cleaning love too… Although this might not sound like the most fun chore, you’ll be singing its praises once your trash can is as good as new. Completely empty your kitchen trash can, spray it with a disinfectant, scrub it with a long-handled cleaning brush, and voila! The smells are long gone.


  1. Bedding Beauty


The place you go to for ultimate relaxation, your bed is one of the most special places in your home. Refresh this space by dressing your bed with cool, light fabrics like cotton or linen. A light-colored duvet or summer-themed pillows create an entirely fresh vibe.


  1. Flower Power


A sure sign of summer, fresh flowers make this season so lovable. Whether in your primary bedroom, guest bathroom, living room, or kitchen, sweet-smelling flowers like lilacs, tulips, and daffodils make your home feel fresh, light, and beautiful… And most of all, as happy as can be.


  1. Gut Your Garage


It’s easy to let the things in your garage pile up, but it’s difficult to clean it all up. With the start of summer officially here, make it a point to tackle the garage! After sorting items into piles (keep, donate, sell, recycle), do a little dusting, sweeping, and wiping down, and it’ll be as good as new in no time.



There’s nothing better this time of year than getting ready for a fun-filled summer! Make sure your home is up for the season with a little bit of deep cleaning. We can’t wait to see how you spruce up your home. From all of us at JC Jackson Homes, have a happy summer!
