Refresh Your Home With These Spring Cleaning Tips

Spring cleaning is all about a big thorough clean. Getting rid of dirt, dust and mites from the most hidden places.

Having a clean and tidy home has nothing but upsides. This spring, follow Dyson’s top 5 tips to ensure your home gets that spring fresh feeling.

1. Rugs are dust collectors

Rugs collect a lot of dust, skin-cells and dirt. People can lose up to 28g of skin a week – that’s the equivalent of a bag of chips – a dust mite’s paradise. Shake rugs outside to get rid of dust and dirt and then vacuum thoroughly to make sure you remove the dust mites and their droppings.

2. Pets can get allergies too

You can help alleviate allergy triggers through regularly grooming your pet. Don’t forget to clean your pet’s bedding to remove hair and other allergens.

3. Stuffed toys are a favourite hiding place for dust mites

Once a month, place soft toys in a plastic bag and put in the freezer for 12 hours. Dust mites hate the cold. Then leave toys to thaw naturally, this will kill adult dust mites and stop them breeding.

4. Curtains and blinds harbour dust and pollen

So, clean them regularly using Dyson’s soft dusting brush attached to the wand of your Dyson vacuum cleaner.

5. Don’t neglect your stairs

Dust, dirt, hair and fibres collect on these well-walked areas. A stair tool, attached to your vacuum cleaner, is perfect for getting into all those nooks and crannies.

Dyson barrel vacuums house cyclones that capture more dirt and microscopic dust than any other. They also expel clean air making sure that allergens and bacteria don’t pass straight through the machine and out back into the room.
