Most probably, you don’t want to get to this point, do you? Fortunately, Merry Maids can help you out with some free advice. Let’s see some of the spots that tend to accumulate a lot of dust and learn how to keep them neat.
Bookshelves And Mantels
The are among the most cluttered places in a home. This is where you tend to pile up your photos, various decor items, and even unopened mail. You may already know that clutter is a huge dust magnet. Keep your clutter at the bare minimum and you’ll already improve the situation a great deal. Furthermore, don’t overlook dusting your mantels and bookshelves every week, during your regular home cleanings. For best results, avoid using wood and furniture polishes, as they usually create a thin film which attracts a lot of dust. Just wipe down these surfaces with a microfiber cloth and you should be fine.
The Top Of Your Fridge And The Coils Behind It
If you have a tall refrigerator, chances are you never think about its top surface. Well, dust loves this particular area and it loves to accumulate here, since there’s nothing to disturb it. The same applies to the coils that are located behind or under your fridge. Always keep the top of your fridge clear of clutter and clean. Wipe it down weekly or at least monthly. In addition, unplug your fridge and clean its coils at least once a year. If you need a professional cleaning, contact Merry Maids to learn more about our refrigerator cleaning service.

As for your light fixtures, you can easily see that stubborn dust piling up on them. Consider learning how to clean ceiling fans, light fixtures and other such difficult-to-reach places.
