The summer is almost over and it’s time to get ready for the new school year. Whether your kids are going back to the classroom or continuing with online learning, you want to make sure your home is clean and organized for a smooth transition. Here are some back to school cleaning tips from Eco Valley Chem-Dry, your trusted carpet and upholstery cleaning service in Chestermere, Alberta.

Declutter and Donate

One of the first steps to a successful back to school cleaning is to declutter your home and get rid of any unwanted or unused items. You can start by sorting through your kids’ clothes, shoes, toys, books, and school supplies and donating anything that they have outgrown or no longer need. This will free up some space in your closets, drawers, shelves, and storage bins and make it easier to find what you need.

Organize Your Entryway

Your entryway is the place where your kids will store their backpacks, coats, shoes, and other essentials when they come home from school. To avoid clutter and mess, you need to have a system in place to keep everything organized. You can install a shoe rack, hooks, shelves, or baskets to store these items and label them with your kids’ names. You can also designate a spot for important papers, such as permission slips, homework assignments, or reminders.

Sanitize High-Touch Surfaces

With the ongoing pandemic, it’s important to sanitize high-touch surfaces regularly to prevent the spread of germs and viruses. These include door handles, light switches, faucets, countertops, keyboards, remote controls, phones, and tablets. You can use disinfecting wipes or sprays to clean these surfaces and make sure to wash your hands frequently.

Clean Your Carpets and Upholstery

Your carpets and upholstery are the largest filters in your home. They trap dust, dirt, allergens, bacteria, and other contaminants that can affect your indoor air quality and health. To keep them clean and fresh, you need to vacuum them regularly and have them professionally cleaned at least once a year. Eco Valley Chem-Dry offers a superior carpet and upholstery cleaning service that uses a green-certified solution and hot carbonating extraction process that removes 98% of allergens and 89% of airborne bacteria from your home. Our cleaning method also uses 80% less water than steam cleaning and dries in 1-2 hours instead of days.
