When it comes to seasonal cleaning, spring cleaning is the most popular. So, maybe you already deep-cleaned your place before summertime arrived.
However, the summer comes with its own challenges, and a seasonal cleaning addressing them might be more important than most people think.
Just consider summer months are not short on sun, heat, humidity, and rain; those four little things can badly affect your house if not appropriately addressed. Imagine a summer where you spend time fixing the damages to your home instead of relaxing.
Besides, taking care of your home during summer can help you be prepared for all the fun activities of the season.
So, check out these tips to tackle summer cleaning without issues!
Summer cleaning: not as complicated as you thought
Contrary to spring cleaning, summer cleaning can be more about specific chores. So you won’t be rearranging your entire home for these tasks. Summer is here, and you’ll be relaxing in the blink of an eye!
Tip #1. Get your patio ready
Your patio is a perfect spot to spend the warm summer days, whether alone or accompanied by friends or family. To leave it just perfect, dust the furniture and apply the adequate solution to clean it, then rinse it with a garden hose.

You can get rid of moss and lichen by sweeping your patio with a stiff brush. A riskier method to remove moss is spraying a mixture of warm water and bleach. Rinse after a few minutes with fresh water, and your patio will be ready for you to enjoy the sunny days.
Tip #2. Degrease your grill
Clean your grill by turning it on and closing it for 30 minutes; that way, stuck gunk will burn and fall off. For another cleaning layer, apply apple cider vinegar to the metal wiring and scrub it with a stiff brush or balled-up aluminum. Let it air-dry before putting it back in.
Tip #3. Clean the windows
How can you enjoy the summer sun with dirty windows? Make them see-through again with a solution consisting of one part vinegar and ten parts warm water.
Pour it into a spray bottle and cover your window with the solution. Then, wipe the entire surface clean with a microfiber cloth. Rinse the area with a dampened soft cloth and let the summer heat dry your windows.
Cleaning the outside of your windows will be more challenging. If necessary, scrub stubborn stains with a kitchen sponge.
Tip #4. Erase water rings
As you’ll be enjoying a lot of cold drinks this season, chances are water rings will end up on many surfaces.
If you spot water rings on your wood furniture, remove them by putting a cotton towel over them. Next, plug in your iron and let it heat. Once heated, place it over the cloth a few seconds before removing it. Repeat this process until the water ring is gone.
Tip #5. Prevent mildew
Warm weather and high humidity levels facilitate mildew growth, especially in areas with above-average humidity levels. Prevent this by frequently wiping areas prone to mold growth and letting the doors and windows open to create an adequate airflow.
