The beauty and uniqueness of a room is in its details. Baseboards are one of the necessary accessories that smooth the visual transition from wall to floor. Yet, as pivotal as baseboards are for the finished look of a room, we rarely give them any thought and we hardly ever remember to clean them. Follow our guide for clean baseboards and let the details of your house shine.
Dust and Wash
First give those baseboards a good dusting. Wipe with a clean cloth. Once the molding is dust-free, wash with warm soapy water and a sponge. Make sure to squeeze out excess water then scrub until marks are gone and the surface is clean. Dry with a clean cloth.
Clean the Crevices
Baseboards differ in design, but they often have small curves and woodwork patterns that can be more difficult to clean. To clean these crevices, use a cotton swab dipped in warm soapy water.
It’s not fun stooping or crawling around on your knees in order to clean baseboards. Put off the next cleaning and make your handiwork last longer by repelling dust. Wipe down the baseboard with a dryer sheet. The sheet’s anti-static properties will repel dust.
Clean Baseboards Make the Room
Baseboards don’t need to be cleaned often, but they shouldn’t be totally forgotten about. If your schedule is too hectic for you to remember baseboards or any of the other million things to be cleaned, hire a professional maid cleaning service to help you with your house cleaning needs.
