Spring cleaning is an opportunity to rid your home of dust and prepare for the hot Florida weather that’s only a few short weeks away. Deep cleaning doesn’t have to stress your budget, though. With these four money-saving tips, you can clean your Sarasota home in a cost-efficient way.

Mix Your Own Cleaners

If you want to save a few bucks, make your own cleaners using common household items. A half cup of vinegar and a quarter cup of baking soda mixed with water produces an effective all-purpose cleaner. In addition to being nontoxic, the cleaner effectively removes hard-water stains and grime from your shower. It also cleans chrome fixtures and bathroom mirrors.

Change Your Air Filter

Your health depends on your home having good indoor air quality. For only $10, you can reduce allergens in the air by installing a new air filter. If you find yourself sneezing or getting a runny nose, consider hiring a professional to clean your HVAC system’s air ducts. We can do it quickly for an affordable price. Cleaner air means better health and fewer doctor’s bills.

Have Your Indoor Air Quality Checked and Improved

Over time, the air quality inside your home deteriorates, even if you change your air filter regularly. During spring cleaning, hire a professional to check your indoor air quality and recommend ways to improve it. You can decide whether to tackle the problem all at once or little by little to spread out the cost.

Use Microfiber Cleaning Rags

Because microfiber rags do an incredible job of capturing dust and dirt, you can use less cleaning solution. Many of the rags are washable and reusable, making them a great cleaning tool to use for spring cleaning.

As you go about spring cleaning, check your home’s major systems such as the security alarms, smoke detectors, and HVAC. If you find your HVAC system isn’t functioning properly, call Custom Air and Plumbing in Sarasota, Florida, at 888-856-4507.
