Today, I’m sharing easy cleaning tips for those overlooked areas of the home, or the ones we tend to avoid. 😉
When we moved into our brand new home last year, I was so excited about the extra space for our family. We were gaining a second floor with a bonus room just for the kids. It sounded perfect…..until I realized how much more space I would have to clean. I’ve never lived in a home with stairs so cleaning them seemed impossible to me. I have a very heavy vacuum that doesn’t offer a helpful way to clean stairs. And ceiling fans – forget it! The new home has higher ceilings making it extra difficult to clean them, until now!
I should point out that cleaning is not something I enjoy doing. I’m sure many of you out there can relate. With 3 boys (including hubby) in the home, it is quite a feat to keep this place spotless. Many times I do the basics, but you can only put off those areas for so long.
6 Overlooked Areas of the Home & Easy Cleaning Tips
- Under furniture
- Window blinds
- Ceiling fans
- Outdoor furniture
Do you notice all of those handy tools at the bottom of the stairs? They belong to my new Dirt Devil® 360° Reach™. This product is a game-changer and my secret weapon!
First, let me share some of the benefits of the Dirt Devil 360° Reach:
- 4-in-1 lightweight stick vac
- Cyclonic Filtration
- Extended reach that can stretch from floors to ceilings and everything in between
- Reusable quick-rinse filter
- Vac+dust tools with SWIPES™
- Powered stair and upholstery tool
- 27 foot power cord
- 3 year limited warranty
With so many attachments, there’s really no excuse for skipping those problematic areas any longer. The powered stair and upholstery tool quickly snaps onto the vacuum base and is ready to go in seconds. It swivels 180° for convenient cleaning both vertically and horizontally.
The vac+dust tool with swipes is great for cleaning window blinds. It fits conveniently between the slats cleaning both the top and bottom of the blinds. The microfiber pad is removable and washable too!
Ceiling fans are easily overlooked because they’re above you and out of sight for the most part. However, they are dust collectors and once switched on they can circulate dust around your home, causing allergy flair ups for many. With the powered wand snapped onto the base and fan tool attached, you can clean any ceiling fan. It not only dusts, but vacuums the dust up, leaving no mess behind. The fan tool is open-ended on one side, allowing you to clean any fan type.
The vac+dust tool with swipes is also handy for dusting. It sucks up the dust as your cleaning any surface space in your home. It’s great for cleaning all of those picture frames you love displaying around your home as well. Don’t forget air vents – those are another item that require dusting maintenance.
Furniture is another overlooked area, especially outdoor furniture. Whether your cleaning pet hair off your couch or dirt on outdoor furniture, the Dirt Devil 360° Reach can clean it! We use the powered stair and upholstery tool plus attached crevice tool for tight spaces.
The vac+dust hard floor tool with swipes offers a convenient way to clean under furniture that you can’t otherwise get to without moving it. Plus the microfiber pad can be tossed in the washing machine too!
This bagless vacuum can easily be cleaned by emptying the dirt cup and rinsing out the filters. And all of it comes with a handy Dirt Devil bag for easy storage. Need to clean? The Dirt Devil 360° Reach has a tool for it! Master your home cleaning in a snap with this handy vacuum.
I hope these easy cleaning tips have made your job a success!

I need one of those!! I’m so tired of wrestling a monster of a vacuum up the stairs. I shudder to think of how much dust we have accumulated.
Me too, I am so grateful to have the Dirt Devil now. It’s so lightweight!

Oh that thing is AWESOME! We have a HUGE king size sleigh bed which I love… but I mean it is an all day event go get UNDER it enough to clean the tile – drives me insane. I do it and log it as my cardio workout for that day LOL
Haha love that Lynsey! The Dirt Devil is incredibly easy to use and clean with.
Great tips – so many times, you pass by and forget. Looks like a great tool to use for those spots, too! 🙂
