Summer is here! And after years of heavy restrictions related to the pandemic, it feels like this is the first true summer in a very long time, so we gotta make the best of it, right!? Well, yes... and no. As much as we want to ignore the fact that the pandemic is not over, we can't. Social media and the news keep us up to date with the situation as new cases and hospitalizations fluctuate, and even though most people are able to recover fairly quickly thanks to vaccinations and increased medical knowledge, it is still a good idea to keep our spaces, surfaces, and hands clean and disinfected. With that being said, here are our best summer cleaning tips for you to keep your family and everyone around you safe and healthy this sunny season.
Summer Cleaning Tips for 2022
Disinfect your patio furniture
If you haven't done it already, make sure to deep clean and disinfect your patio furniture, throw pillows, and other outdoor items that were stored for months and now are back in full use. Keep in mind that dust and bacteria build-up can have adverse effects on people's skin (rashes, allergies), airways (asthma attacks), and overall health.
Disinfect and sanitize the grill
Nothing makes food taste worse than burnt residues from last summer. Avoid this unpleasant situation by cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitizing the grill before using it this summer. Trust us, it will make a huge difference.
Clean and disinfect air conditioner filters
Summer is the time to be outdoors, but when we are indoors, air conditioners become our best friends to survive the hotter days, so take some time to properly clean and disinfect all the air conditioner filters around your house to ensure nobody will get sick from breathing in contaminants or allergens coming from a dusty AC. The same goes for fans. Now is the time to give them a good clean and sanitize them to keep them from spreading dust, allergens and contaminants everywhere in your house.
Wash windows and screens
Summer comes with brighter and longer days, so your house is now filled with beautiful natural light that makes everything look better... unless your windows are dusty and dirty. Don't let this happen to you, so clean and disinfect your windows and don't forget to spend some time on the screens that keep those unwanted bugs out of your house.
Kitchens and bathrooms
Last, but not least on this list is keeping those high-traffic and high-touch areas clean and disinfected. This is a year-round task, and for good reason, since kitchens and bathrooms can become the source of harmful bacteria, viruses and other germs if not treated properly, so don't let your guard down.
A clean home is a happy home, so take these summer cleaning tips and put them to practice to guarantee that your family will have, not only a COVID-free summer but also a safer and healthier season all around.
