As we prepare for the upcoming holidays, we can’t help but look back and reflect on our most memorable. Why? Because we know this holiday will be unlike any we’ve ever known. But when we look to find some commonality, we recognize all of the wonderful years past shared something in common: some sort of mishap or mess! Like the year the Christmas tree fell not once, but twice, into the middle of the living room. Or that time the cat swatted and broke every single ornament hanging on the bottom level of the tree…

To say a lot of life happens on our floors doesn’t really begin to tell the story of how much our floors witness over the course of our lives. They are the foundation of our homes and the bedrock of our safe space. They get to see so many cute things, like babies learning to crawl and take their first steps, snoozing pups and playful kittens. They also get to see the not-so-cute things, like drool, shedding, mud, spills, accidents, and so much more. All of those memorable and not-so-memorable moments on our floors are exactly the reasons why keeping them clean is so important.

This may not be easy for you to hear, because it definitely wasn’t easy for us to write – deep cleaning in 2020 looks a little different than what you learned from mom all those years ago. Don’t get us wrong, we are in no way saying mom was mistaken. Her tried and true ‘deep clean every 6 months’ rule remains, but as people’s cleaning needs and routines continue to change, so do the cleaning ‘rules’.

While making mom feel special this year will be extra challenging given the current environment, it’ll be worth it if you’re able to pull it off. We’ve got a few tips and tricks to help!

At BISSELL®, we practice “spring cleaning” year-round, but we do up our game a little every year when the actual season arrives. After all these years, we’ve realized something important: not everyone has the same excitement that we do when it comes to spring cleaning. That’s why we created an easy-to-follow 20-day spring cleaning guide.

Spring Break is a much-anticipated time of year for all ages – kids look forward to it pretty much all year, and we know parents do, too! It doesn’t matter how excited you are for the trip; we know packing up your family and leaving for a week can be stressful. Regardless of if you’re hopping on a plane, loading up the car or kicking back on a train (or a combination of all of these!), each mode of transportation can come with its own set of stressors. While it would be easy for us to just tell you not to stress about the trip, we know that’s not a really helpful approach. What is helpful is setting you up for success before, during and after your trip, so let’s get to it.

When it comes to stain removers, and the best way to go about removing stains, the list is pretty much endless. Grape juice, pet accidents, motor oil, mud; we could go on and on. That means that how to get a stain out is a tough question to answer. We get asked all the time how to remove stains, what is the best stain remover for carpet, or how to remove set-in stains, and we usually start with the question: Do you have any idea what kind of stain it is? If not, that’s fine. We can help with that too. But there are also some common messes we think everyone should know how to clean up, so we’re sharing tips on how to get a stain out for three pretty popular messes.

Raise your hand if you have a busy schedule during the week. That’s what we thought. You can put your hand down now. How many times have you found yourself vowing to create, and stick to, some sort of weekly house cleaning schedule? We’ve been there too. A weekly cleaning schedule is a lot like a New Year’s Resolution. It sounds great during the cold winter months, and it actually works well for the first few weeks, but come the fourth or fifth week you may start to find yourself lagging. We got sick of feeling like our house cleaning schedules were a failure, so we put together the ultimate cleaning routine to help keep our spaces sparkling clean every day of the week.

When do you spay or neuter a dog or cat? For years, you’ve probably heard that the best age for this reproductive surgery is six months, but times change. Veterinary experts and pet owners are taking a closer look at when it should occur. And the answer isn’t what you might think.

It’s easy to get into a routine of cleaning the same areas over and over again. And certain common spaces, like the front hall, kitchen, and living room, should be regularly cleaned. However, if you are spring cleaning and looking to focus on more specific “once-a-year” type areas, do not skip over these must clean spaces.

Area rugs are the perfect way to add warmth to a living space without the hassle of wall-to-wall carpet. But just like everything else in high-traffic areas of your home, they can take quite a beating and become dirtier than you might think. Follow these tips and tricks to help rugs stay fresh and clean instead of old and dingy:

Let’s face it: Housecleaning for most can feel like a necessary evil. But here’s the thing—it doesn’t have to be an all-day Saturday affair. In fact, you can get your home looking clean in 20 minutes flat if you’re smart about it. Use this list to tackle your space quickly so you can get back to more exciting things (like Netflix and snacks).
