Why Spring Cleaning Should be Preventative, Too

You’ve devoted the time and effort to complete your spring-cleaning and give your home the fresh, clean feeling it deserves. Don’t let that sense of accomplishment disappear as your home gets dirty again. Instead, make sure you are spring-cleaning with preventative measures so that you can enjoy a deeper clean for a longer period of time.
The first step to making your efforts last is to use the right tools. Make sure you are using cleaning formulas and products that are proven to withstand the test of time. There are even products that can prevent future messes.
For example, carpet cleaning formulas containing Scotchgard™ protector can help protect your carpet from future stains, and it out cleans the others in the marketplace. The Scotchgard™ protector in the BISSELL Advanced carpet cleaning formula surrounds each individual carpet fiber, which helps protect against the future dirt and food stains warmer weather is sure to bring.
You’ll know it has done its job the next time a spill occurs on your carpet. Instead of soaking and absorbing right into your carpet, leaving a stain behind, the liquid will bead around the carpet fibers. Because the fibers have been treated with Scotchgard™ protector, they repel potential stains, giving you more time to deal with the spill and avoid a negative long-term impact.
Implement Organizing Tactics All Year Long
Spring cleaning isn’t just the time for completing tasks you don’t normally do—like deep cleaning your carpet—it’s also a great time to organize. Instead of simply organizing clutter that’s already there, take steps to prevent future disorganization.
For example, create a filing system for important papers and bills, and use plastic bins and boxes to keep toys and other accessories together and in place.
We love using glass or apothecary jars in the bathroom to store items like makeup brushes or cotton balls. Another helpful and beautiful way to organize is to use decorative trays to group together loose items (such as jewelry, perfume bottles or even remote controls) that don’t necessarily have a place of their own.
So, give it some thought. Whatever method you use for making your spring cleaning last, you’ll be glad you did.
