Prepare Your Home for the Summer
When the days are longer and the weather gets warmer you might be in the mood to enjoy the sunshine outside, but June is also the ideal time to get your home ready for the summer. In fact, during warmer weather, harmful bacteria thrive and continue to replicate1 – so your cleaning routine is just as important now as during other times of the year.
Take advantage of those extra daylight hours, and use our simple tips and tricks to keep your home looking and feeling fresh all summer long.
Give carpets a refresh
Now is the perfect time to clean the carpets in your home, so consider using a carpet washer such as the Vax Platinum Power Max to freshen up your carpets ready for summer. Not only does it clean carpets 5 times better than a high performance vacuum cleaner^, when used with Vax Platinum Professional Solution it also removes up to 93% of bacteria.
To leave your carpets clean and dry in as little as 1 hour*, simply use the Platinum Power Max in quick clean mode. Plus if it’s warm outside, you can open the windows to ventilate the room with fresh air which may speed up drying time.
Use the right solution
If you’re going to wash your carpets, you’ll want people to know they’ve been cleaned. To get the best results and leave carpets looking and smelling fresh, we recommend using Platinum Professional Solution with your Vax Platinum. This is our best performing solution, which deep cleans carpets and neutralises bad odours.
Stay on top of busy areas
When the weather starts to get warmer there may be more traffic in and out of the house, causing the hard floors in hallways and entrances to get dirty easily.
For a quick and hygienic way to clean up any dirt and mess, use Vax ONEPWR Glide which kills 99.9% of bacteria** with our Multi-Floor Solution as it vacuums, washes and dries at the same time – leaving you extra time to enjoy the sunshine!
Clean with steam
Steam cleaning is a fast and easy way to hygienically clean a variety of household surfaces. Get the most out of your steam cleaner by using one that comes with a range of attachments, such as the Vax Steam Fresh Combi which includes a window tool for cleaning windows and glass. This means there’s no need to switch between cloths, sprays and brushes when cleaning the windows around your home before summer.
Don’t forget car interiors
It’s not just the areas inside your home that need attention, you may also want to freshen up the inside of your car in preparation for summer. A cordless vacuum such as the Vax ONEPWR Blade 4 is ideal for doing just that, as it transforms into a handheld to allow you to clean car boots and more.
For those hard to reach or confined spaces, make sure you take advantage of any extra tools too – such as a textile tool for car seats, and a crevice tool for any awkward gaps.
