Spring is in the air; there’s no doubt about that; the perfect time for a spot of house cleaning! As a nation, we’re officially jet-washing our paths and cleaning our cars – there’s nothing more satisfying than when things feel fresh. If you’re looking for the best house cleaning products to tackle each room, we’ve put together this handy checklist. Read on for five products we just know you will love to get your home sparkling.
PS87 PRO – a 3-in-1 degreasing floor cleaner
One of the most attractive things about tiled flooring is how easy it is to clean and maintain. The only downside is it can hide dirt and germs, so a deep clean is essential to your families overall health. PS87 PRO is FILA’s degreasing floor cleaner and a 3-in-1 solution for reviving tiled floors. Breaking down and removing the superficial biofilm that affects the tiles finish, with this cleaner, your home will be easily refreshed. It cannot be used, however, with polished stones or wood; for these surfaces, a ph neutral cleaner is recommended.
CLEANER PRO – the best cleaner for delicate surfaces
When it comes to home decor, it’s easy to see why homeowners choose natural stone. Polished marble offers a luxurious look with its natural veining but is sensitive, and needs additional care. The best cleaner for natural stone with a polished finish is FILA’s ph neutral cleaner, CLEANER PRO. A biodegradable detergent with a pleasant fragrance, CLEANER PRO is kind enough to clean any surface including the kitchen island.
DETERDEK PRO – a professional cleaner for outdoors and patio tiles
The fresher the home, the more pleasant it is but it’s also important to spring clean outside. The British weather is famously random and brings with it all types of conditions so regular maintenance will keep your property looking its best. FILA’s DETERDEK PRO is a powerful residue remover that can be used for the initial cleaning after the installation of tiles. In fact, it’s a very versatile product that does many things including removing limescale and salt residues left on the floor by rain or snow. If you also have stainless steel trims, DETERDEK PRO won’t tarnish the finish and is incredibly effective against rust stains. This product can also be used to remove swimming pool limescale and the inorganic part of smog, especially in the bigger cities.
DETERDEK PRO can be used on porcelain tiles, terracotta and stones that are resistant to acid. For acid-sensitive stones, we suggest PS87 PRO (for unpolished surfaces) or CLEANER PRO (for polished surfaces). Once the surface is clean we also recommend a maintenance plan; CLEANER PRO for ordinary maintenance and PS87 PRO for extraordinary maintenance.
BRIO – an all-surface cleaner for any room
The holy-grail of cleaning, an all-surface cleaner, will save you cluttering your cupboards with ten different products. A degreaser and glass cleaner all rolled into one; they can be used in pretty much any room. FILA’s BRIO cleans any surface from office furniture to cupboard doors and tiles. Our multi-purpose cleaner is also ideal for everyday use; simply spray and wipe clean with a soft, dry cloth.
RAPIDSAN – an eco and naturally scented disinfectant
Ever since the coronavirus pandemic, many homeowners have spent more time spraying and wiping. Things like handles and taps are high-touch surfaces that can carry bacteria and should be regularly cleaned. FILA’s eco-disinfectant RAPIDSAN is the best cleaner for the daily sanitation of objects. What’s more, it contains germ-fighting tea tree oil and is also pet safe, meaning your home will always smell naturally gorgeous!
5 tips for successful house cleaning:
Does the idea of spring cleaning feel daunting to you? Take it easy and go room by room. The end result will be a revitalised space in time for summer; here are five tips to get you started:
Clear the clutter
Studies have shown a disorganised home can have a negative effect on wellbeing. Before you begin, start by clearing the clutter – you’ll be surprised what it does for the soul!
Tackle the hard jobs first
‘Eat that frog’ is a saying that means do the worst job of the bunch first. Whether that’s cleaning the garden or bathroom, whatever you dislike, do it first, and the rest will be easy.
Get the whole house involved
Although they’re usually part of the problem, even small children can be big helpers when it comes to house cleaning. Make it fun by playing some music and rewarding hard work – there’s nothing better than quality family time.
Minimise your house cleaning products
Is your kitchen cupboard overflowing with too many products? It’s time to downsize your stash. At FILA, our range of core products includes protectors and cleaners, all highly-concentrated to go a long way!
Practise new cleaning habits
Although spring’s a great time to tackle house cleaning, it doesn’t mean you have to do it all at once. Just fifteen minutes a day can make a big difference, and deep cleaning more straightforward.
