Living Room Cleaning Tips

Written by Posted On Thursday, 04 April 2019 08:46

Many people like to relax in the living room, which means for most of us it's where we like to spend our free time and entertain guests. Yet with so many things going on in just one room it's inevitable that a lot of dust and dirt will accumulate. The following are some living room cleaning tips to help you.

Living Room Cleaning Tips - For a Tidy Home


1. Cleaning Mini Blinds


Blinds have replaced window curtains in many households. Blinds are durable and less prone to stains, plus they make curtains look like old-fashioned smocks. Blinds are quick to build upon dust and dirt if you don't take good care of them, though. Take that blind off the wall and out of the house where you can get it all cleaned up.


Hang the dirty blind on a wall, preferably at the back of the house. Turn the slats downwards and spray on them with a mixture of soap and water. Let them drip for a while, then dry clean using a sponge. Turn the slats over and repeat.


2. Another One Bites the Dust


Dust is very common, so there's no way you can get rid of it for good or keep it from collecting along the surfaces and crevices. Your best bet is too deep clean your house every three months or so, to make sure not so much dust has settled that it attracts mites and other tiny organisms into your home.


Sweep the living room using a sweeper or a duster. Cover your nose while doing so and if possible, try to spread a sheet of cloth over the furniture- the sofa, the couch, chairs - so the dust doesn't get on them. It's a foolproof way of keeping your living room dust-free.


3. Cleaning Glass Table Tops


Glass table tops have invaded almost every aspect of the common home. You'll find a glass table top on dining tables, nightstands, porch tables or coffee tables. They're the in-item these days. Many interior designers strive to incorporate tables with glass tops into his or her designs.


Cleaning glass table tops are easy: wipe using a lint-free towel with Windex or any other window cleaning solvent. Always remember to never spray directly on the glass surface. Spray some cleaner on the towel and use that to clean the surface to avoid scratching.


4. Removing Pet Hairs


Animal fur, like that from cats and dogs, can easily get stuck onto the couch upholstery and on the carpet. It takes time to get it all out, especially when you have pets running around all the time.


Take the vacuum out of the closet. Insert the nozzle attachment and use it to get at the pet hairs on the carpet and in hard-to-reach areas.


5. Cleaning TV and Computer Screens


Television has changed the way we live our lives and clean our houses. Like the PC monitor, the TV screen is a delicate piece of equipment, one that is sensitive to the touch. Fortunately, the cleaning process is not as complicated.


Dampen a piece of cloth made of flannel cotton into a mixture of 50 / 50 water and isopropyl alcohol, then use it to wipe the dirty TV or a computer screen. It's not a fabulous task by any means, but it gets the job done (unless you're looking for an excuse to buy a new TV set, that is).


Above are living room cleaning tips for you to follow. These tips will help keep your living room tidy without having to spend a lot of time cleaning.
