Tips for Cleaning the Hard-to-Reach Areas in Your Home

March 14, 2018
Published by

Spring is almost here! As we get ready to usher in a new season around our new homes in Inner Loop Houston communities it is important to clean those hard-to-reach areas in your home.

  1. Behind the toilet – You probably clean the inside of your toilet bowl quite often. But how many times do you actually clean behind it? The back of the toilet isn’t necessarily the easiest place to reach. But it is a place dust, hair, and other debris can build up quite frequently. Sweep behind the toilets, use a moistened microfiber cloth to clean off the sides of the toilets, and then mop behind that area to get it clean.
  2. Cabinet top – These can build up with dust and grime. Get on a step stool or a ladder and then use a microfiber ladder and multi-surface cleaning solution to wipe away all the grime.
  3. Ceiling fan – With warmer weather coming you’ll probably be turning your ceiling fans on. The last thing you want is dust from those ceiling fans flying around your room. Use a duster with an extended handle to wipe each blade. Then use a vacuum or broom to clean up the dust that has fallen off.
  4. Dishwasher filter – This can get downright nasty. Use an old toothbrush to get down in the nooks and crannies of the dishwasher filter and scrub away and buildup that may have built up.
  5. Mattress top – You may be inclined to wash your sheets and comforter frequently, but how many times have you cleaned your mattress? Sprinkle a little bit of baking soda on your mattress and then use the upholstery attachment on your vacuum to suck up any dirt, dust, and debris that may have built up in the crevices of your mattress.
  6. Top of the fridge – The top of the fridge can become a smorgasbord for dust, grease, debris and other grimy things. Break out the rubber gloves and a microfiber cloth that is dampened with mild detergent and wipe down the top of your refrigerator.
  7. Venetian blinds – These can definitely be tricky to clean. Grab tongs from your kitchen drawer, wrap microfiber cloths around them and then tie a rubber band around them to keep them secured. Next you should close your blinds and then dust away. Reverse your venetian blinds to clean the other side.

"We are so grateful to have found Sandcastle Homes! They’ve made the home-buying process so much easier and more enjoyable than we could have imagined. They are responsive, respectful, and always put the customer first. We truly appreciate the speed and accuracy with which they’ve addressed any concerns we’ve brought up throughout the process and can’t wait to officially own our first home. Sandcastle has a team that clearly values one another as much as they do their customers, and you can feel a sense of community when working with them."

"Sandcastle did an amazing job with my house. They came through on everything they promised. Jose Salas, the construction manager, is very helpful even after we closed on the house. He goes above and beyond. Getting to meet the owner, Salomon, during the closing was a great experience as many other builders don’t do this. We love our house and the quality of it!!"

Enrique and Judith

"We just moved into our new home by Sandcastle. Since the beginning of the process the whole Sandcastle team paid great attention to our requests and responded rapidly. We were lucky to get in contract in time for us to choose colors, kitchen design, finishes and other and all our requests were reflected in our new house. At the end of the closing, the team always kept the same great attitude towards us and helped us with any question or request. We would say one of the greatest things about Sandcastle is that they really back up what they sell: best price, best service, best quality in town. We ended up extremely pleased with our new house."

Andres and Marcela

"I just moved into my new Sandcastle home and I think it’s a wonderful place to live. They have been very helpful, particularly Lynette and Steve. From the owner Mike Salomen down, it has been a truly positive experience. I would highly recommend anyone who wants to buy a new home that is built of high quality to consider this home builder."
