I’m seriously trying to get as many Spring cleaning tasks done before it gets hot.
Once it get hot around here I want to spend my time having fun with my husband and kids, having friends over and enjoying the Summer.
So to prepare I’ve been tackling a different task from my Spring cleaning list each day until it’s complete.
Today task is getting the ceiling fans cleaned. Upon first look at my living room you can’t even tell the ceiling fan needs cleaning.
As a family, we generally tidy and clean daily, but not things such as the ceiling fan. Cleaning the ceiling fan is usually done twice a year, once before it gets warm and agin once it cools off in the Fall.
If you look a bit closer you’ll see that it’s pretty grimy and I don’t want that flying around once we begin using the fan in a couple of weeks.
Then I used a second swifter to dust around the lightbulb cover and area that houses the fan motor.
I gave everything a good scabbing and wiping with the Lysol wipes making sure to wipe the light and fan pulls as well. After that I inspected for overlooked dust or grime.
Because I could not see the tops of the fan blades I used my hand to feel it it felt clean and also my camera to take a photo of the top of the blade.
Once I saw there were traces of grime, I went back over it with a Lysol wipe until I was satisfied.
Aside from having to stop and gather more supplies, this Spring cleaning task took all of about 15 minutes from start to finish.
I’m just about finished with my living room Spring cleaning task and will continue working my way down the list room by room until I’m done.
