Cleaning your home can be a big task especially all in one go! APC Pure has created our own guide for the top tricks and tips ensuring cleaning is made easy!

Our Top Tips:

Pick up clutter

A house can not be cleaned without moving some things around. Clutter being one of them! Simply start by going to each room and putting clutter or items that should not be out back to where they belong.

Dust

Give each room a quick dust before beginning to reduce the amount of spray and cloths you will need to use! This will help lower allergens and improve the air quality in your home.

Clothes

Face your fears with your wardrobe and drawers by sorting through any unwanted items! This will mean less washing and less cluttering!

Vacuum

Make sure the bag/compartment is not full and is emptied often.

Sweeping/Mopping

When mopping, we suggest starting at the furthest corner of the room and working your way backwards. Rinse mop after completing small areas.
