It's that time again for the annual Spring Clean. While you already have your trusty list of items that you complete each year, have you ever wondered if there was something you were missing?

A Few Tricky Spots You May Have Missed During Your Spring Clean

Surely you managed to find each and every piece of dirt around your home? Or, maybe you forgot a spot or two? As thorough as your cleaning list likely is, Colonial Cleanpro is here with a post of spaces you likely forgot. This can help you make your next spring clean an even more thorough one.

Why Not Start at the Top?

  • Step back and take a look at those nice shiny glass cabinet windows you just cleaned. Don’t forget about the collection of dust sitting on top of it.
  • Your refrigerator sure looks and smells nice and clean. Don’t forget it has started a dust museum on top of it.
  • How about those stand alone closets that you were able to clean out finally? Yep, you guessed it, there’s going to be dust on top of them.
With so much cleaning work to do, it can be tempting to give your house a superficial clean. This is a clean only to the point where the home looks visually clean. While it can be easy to adopt the mentality that if you can’t see it, it can’t hurt you, excessive dust buildup can wreak havoc for residents with sensitive allergies.

While You’re up There

  • Despite how they might look, your light bulbs are quite good at collecting dust throughout their daily business.
  • Despite its constant spinning, fans do their fair share of collecting dust in your home.
    • Remember, when cleaning your fan, it’s important to use the right attachment to get on top of your blades. If you don’t have a brush with a long handle and an adjustable head, your vacuum cleaner is likely to come with an attachment that can do the job.

Carpet Cleaning

Every two weeks you routinely bring out the vacuum cleaner, turn it on, scare the dog, and then remove as much dirt and debris from your carpets as possible. However, try as you may have, there were some stains which you just couldn’t remove. Instead of hiring your own steam cleaning machine and causing damage to your carpet, take the mid-year opportunity to get your carpets professionally cleaned and treated. A professional clean can and will remove more dust than your regular vacuuming can, along with using a high-quality cleaning fluid that can remove even the most stubborn stains. If your carpets are looking old or worn, Colonial Cleanpro can help. Speak with a carpet cleaning expert by calling 804 324 6471 and ask about how Cleanpro's proprietary carpet cleaning system can treat your carpet to a professional clean without causing damage to its fibers or the environment.


Do you remember the sales agent in the mattress store who told you that your new mattress would mean peaceful night's sleep with minimal maintenance? While you likely heard ‘no maintenance,' the agent was actually telling you there would be some work involved. Remove any and all sheets and give your mattress a thorough vacuum on both sides. Be sure that you pay attention to any creases and stitched areas which could house dirt, debris, or even bugs! If you also have a wooden bed base, consider giving this a thorough clean, too.

Lamp Shades

It’s safe to safe that this one is already on your list. However, don’t stop reading just yet. While you may have cleaned what you could see of your lampshades, there is a lot of dust hiding on the other side of the shade. Additionally, the base of the lampshade along with the wiring and even the light bulb have likely accumulated dust and will need a clean. While it can be tempting to just wave your vacuum cleaner hose over your lampshades, be sure to use a cloth to wipe away the built up dust and allergens.
