Many people get the deep-cleaning bug each spring, but is spring really the most important time to give your home a complete scrub-down? While you may track plenty of dust into the home in the spring and summer, you spend the most time indoors in the winter months. Trying to keep heat from escaping also means the same stagnate, dirty air recycles through your home all winter long.
Follow these pro deep-cleaning tips to remove dirt from hard-to-reach places, make sure your home is well-maintained and improve indoor air quality this winter.

After replacing the filters, soak dusty ventilation covers in a hot water and soap solution. Filters work to pull dust particles out of the air and create cleaner, healthier air for you to breathe. They also keep your floors and furniture from gathering dust, helping keep your home looking its best.
2. Clean Refrigerator Coils: Dirty refrigerator coils can raise your electric bill by $5–$10 a month. To clean your fridge coils, first unplug your fridge, then, locate your fridge coils either on the back or bottom of the unit.
