Yes, Spring is here. That can only mean one thing...Time for a Spring Clean!

Time to pull back the furniture, flip the mattresses and put into practice some of your yoga positions to get to those hard to reach places for your annual Spring Clean.

Here are 7 dirt harbouring hot spots you may have forgot about when doing your spring clean and some helpful tips in how to banish the filth until next time.

Ceiling Fixtures

Just because they're above our eye view, doesn't mean they don't need attention. You can easily vacuum dust and dirt from light fixtures and decorative ceiling mouldings using our Dusting Brush with Soft Bristles. Also don't forget any smoke alarms that may be risking your safety because of built-up dirt and grime. Warm soapy water to remove fixed on dirt will do the trick.

Vacuum your refrigerator coils

Everyone uses their fridge on a daily basis but do you ever check to see what is behind it? Pull out the fridge to clean the coils but make sure you unplug the fridge first. Vacuum away any dust or dirt build-up around the coils and along the floor with the appropriate vacuum nozzle. It may be hard to reach so the Curved Handle Tube will do the trick.

Flip the Mattress

Our mattresses harbour millions of nasty little dust mites which build up very quickly. Zap them up and away using the handy Upholstery Nozzle Attachment. No home needs these unwelcomed visitors. Flip the mattress and repeat for a better night's sleep.

Skirting boards

You always mean to do it, well now is the time! Attach our handy Crevice Nozzle to get around all shapes and sizes of skirting boards ensuring you get right into the corners of every room. To finish off, wipe clean with warm soapy water. Build up of dust in these areas may not be obvious but are a breading ground for dust mites to live in your home - RENT FREE!

Tumble Dryer

This is something that should be done more often than just Spring but a quick reminder that we need to vacuum out the lint trap of the dryer and clean the vents and exhaust as well. Tumble dryers can be a safety hazard in the home so this is important to remember. Use the Crevice Nozzle to get all the dirt away from those narrow places.

Doormats & Carpets

Welcome your visitors with a perfectly vacuumed door mat. Using a Premium Combi-Floor Tool to lift away all that ground-in dirt. First impressions are everything! For all those thick carpets in the house you can use the NEW Air Driven Turbo Brush to get that deep clean.

Don't Forget Your Pets

Phew - thank goodness spring only comes once a year!
