No one goes into the office after the weekend bragging about cleaning their baseboards, but it’s a necessary project that makes your home look better. Our lives are so busy that cleaning projects often get put on the backburner. But everyone needs to find time to clean so that they can show off the millwork in their home. Here are four tips to get you started.
Quick Baseboard Cleaning
It may seem a little wasteful, but the quickest and easiest way to clean millwork is to get a box of cleaning wipes and go to town. If you have enough time or a very large home, this isn’t going to be the most effective or thorough method in cleaning your baseboards. But if you have a small home or just don’t have the time, this method is still a way to make your baseboards look much better.
Dry Baseboard Cleaning Method
If your baseboards aren’t excessively dirty, you may only need to do a light dusting. For this baseboard cleaning method, you just need to make sure you have the right tools. You can use a mini handheld broom or a clean paintbrush. Once you dust your baseboards, you can use a vacuum to collect any hair or dust that was swept off from the baseboards.
Innovative Cleaning Method
This is one of the most innovative, yet surprisingly effective ways to clean your baseboards and show off that great millwork in your home. You can take an old sock and place a disposable toilet wand into the sock. After the sock is covering the wand, spray it with a cleaning solution. It may look weird while you’re doing it, but you’ll be shocked at how effective it is at cleaning your baseboards.
Very Thorough Baseboard Cleaning Method
If you have the time, being extremely thorough is always going to be the best way to clean your baseboards. You want to fist make sure all the dust is brushed off, clean the millwork with a warm washcloth and soap and use cotton swabs in hard-to-clean corners.
