When it comes to cleaning, we at National Spring Cleaning Week are always trying to find new and creative ways to speed up the process. Around 70% of leaf blowers are cordless, meaning they are versatile, mobile and can be used in many different parts of your home and garden. Rather than buying many different electrical tools, which can be dangerous for your children, you can keep your tools to a minimum by finding multiple uses for the same thing. Below a few ways you can use your leaf blower for other cleaning tasks.
Cleaning the Car
A leaf blower can be useful in two main ways for cleaning both the interior and exterior. For inside the car, a powerful blast with a leaf blower is a quick way to remove any dust. Open the doors and blow in one direction to get all of the dust off the seats. You can also dust down the dashboard much more quickly this way.
For the exterior, the leaf blower will help you to dry off the car. Once it has been completely cleaned, you need to get the car dry as quickly as possible to prevent dirt from sticking to it. If it is a cloudy day, a leaf blower can help speed up the drying process.
It is not just the inside of your car that needs dusting. There are areas of the house which can become completely clogged. Every month or so, check your air vents. Lint building up in the clothes dryer can be a fire hazard, so effective cleaning is a matter of safety as well as cleanliness.
Use the leaf blower to remove any dust that has gathered around the home. Blast it in one direction until the blockage is clear. However, be careful not to damage any tubing when using the leaf blower on ventilation systems.
If you use your leaf blower when there are no leaves, then you will be getting the most out of it. Winter is a perfect time for this. While there are no fallen leaves at this time of year, there will likely be snow which needs to be cleared. Whether it’s on your car, driveway or roof, the leaf blower could be a quicker method than the old fashioned shovel.
A great spring cleaner is able to be creative with their tools. Just because it is called a leaf blower, does not mean it should be limited to that function. The powerful blow is great for drying and clearing dust, snow or anything else that needs removing quickly.
