Spring Cleaning Tips

don’t know about you, but by this time each year, I am excited to feel Spring in the air and can’t wait for the warmer weather to hit. I want to kick off my shoes and hang out on my deck. My house feels musty and it’s time for the annual spring clean. Time to restore and renew. We’ve put together a Sun Dry Carpet Cleaning & Pest Control that you should do around your house this spring to ensure a healthier home.


The first thing to do is to declutter. Start with your clothes. Put away the winter stuff and sort the rest while you do it, giving away anything you no longer wear. Other things that should be decluttered include:

  • Desks – documents & papers;
  • Books, toys;
  • Kitchen benchtops, cupboards and pantries;
  • Bathroom cupboards and linen press;
  • Bedside cabinets;
  • Hallways;
  • Garages.

Spring Cleaning

Dust & Tidy Furniture

Time to dust and tidy all your furniture inside and out. While you’re at it dust doorframes, skirting boards, mouldings, pictures and paintings and don’t forget your ceiling fans.

Wash the Windows

Wash the windows inside and out, clean the surrounds and wash or dry clean the curtains and blinds. If this is too difficult, Sun Dry Carpet Cleaning & Pest Control offer a drapery cleaning service that provides amazing results.

Clean Upholstery

We shed 1.5 million skin cells every hour. That’s a lot of yummy food for dust mites and bacteria and guess where a lot of it ends up? In your favourite chair or lounge – that’s where. It’s dirtier than you think. Electrodry Melbourne cleans fabric or leather upholstery, eliminating dust mites and bacteria as well as removing stains and markings. Your upholstery will look completely restored.


Our appliances need cleaning too. We often take them for granted. Clean the lint from your dryer and washing machine, the scale from your kettle and the crumbs from your toaster. Wipe down the outside of everything. Clean the inside of your oven, dishwasher and microwave. And don’t forget your air conditioner. Sun Dry Carpet Cleaning & Pest Control can save you more than 20% off your energy usage this coming summer if you have your air conditioner filter cleaned. It won’t just save you dollars, it will also ensure that the air you breathe is healthier as it will remove contaminants from your air conditioner.

Bedding & Mattresses

In addition to the 1.5 million skin cells shed every hour, the average person also perspires up to 1 litre of sweat and fluids as they sleep each night. The build-up of skin and sweat is a perfect environment for mould, dust mites and bacteria to thrive. Yet cleaning mattresses is something we tend to neglect. Electrodry Melbourne can clean your mattress for you, removing the contaminants and leaving you with a much healthier bed to sleep on. Don’t forget to regularly replace your pillow and to clean your doonas and quilts.

Rugs & Carpets

Obviously Electrodry Melbourne can clean your carpets and rugs professionally but did you know that regular acuuming will only remove 60% of dirt and debris and that over time, this leaves carpets clogged with contaminants. The contaminants then become airborne again because there is no longer any room for them to be trapped in the pile. We breathe them in and this can cause ill health or allergy symptoms. An annual professional clean by Electrodry Melbourne is highly recommended to maintain your carpets and a healthy environment. Our process will leave carpets walk-on dry and is guaranteed to satisfy.

Tile & Grout Cleaning

Grubby grout can creep up on us and look a lot more unsightly than we realise. It’s a back breaking chore but we’ve got the solution. Electrodry Melbourne can clean your tiles and grout and reseal the grout lines so that you never have to scrub them again. If you’ve been thinking of retiling why not have the grout recoloured instead? It will completely transform the space and there are a wide range of colours to choose from.


Never neglect mould as it can be the cause of ill health and you may not realise it. It’s impossible to remove mould completely and unlikely that home treatments will do anything much except stir up the mould spores and spread it further. Electrodry Melbourne offers a mould remediation service that uses an antimicrobial that will remove 95 – 100% of floating spores and prevent them from re-growing.

Outdoor Spaces

You’ve finished the spring clean inside but don’t neglect the outdoor living spaces. Clean out the garage and check for repairs around the yard. What about oiling the deck? Repairing or painting fences? Pruning, weeding, mulching and readying the garden for the warmer months? And don’t forget your bbq and pool.
