Whilst many of us spend time organising and cleaning the inside of our homes on a regular basis, the outside of our property can often be overlooked, with greenhouses being one of the biggest culprits. However, whilst regular greenhouse cleaning may seem like a chore, there are a huge number of advantages having a clean greenhouse can bring.
Greenhouse air vents can gather dust and other debris which can cause the air to have greater difficulty circulating in and out of the space. This stale, unmoving air will slowly start to affect the growth of your plants. Regular cleaning of air vents will help your plants stay healthy and grow better.
As the green-fingered amongst us know, pests are the bane of most gardeners’ lives. Greenhouses attract a variety of pests, including slugs, red spider mites and mealy bugs. Whilst there are no magic solutions for complete pest avoidance, keeping your greenhouse clean will help to keep the pesky bugs at bay.
Over time, greenhouse windows can get start to get grubby. Not only does this look unappealing, but it will start to affect the light entering the greenhouse which will cause issues with your plant growth as well as the ambient temperature of the space. Regular glass cleaning will help keep your Victorian greenhouse light, bright and warm.
Cleaning also means tidying, and tidying is essential in a greenhouse, especially with chemicals and tools around. Ensure all items have a home, off the floor, to avoid tripping hazards and make sure they are tidied away regularly.
