It’s that time of year again. In fact, in many places winter has already hit. Snow has fallen and temperatures are below freezing. Hopefully you got your winterization done. That’s one of the most important things you can do to keep your RV healthy over the winter, in addition to winterizing, is to clean it. Giving your RV a good, deep cleaning removes any grime and dirt and allows you to bring it out of storage in the spring time knowing it’s clean and ready to go.
These RV cleaning tips should help you get a good head start on cleaning your RV.
Seal All Holes
If there’s one thing we hear from RV owners every year, it’s that mice and other critters found their way into their RV over the winter. Think about it: if you’re a tiny, cold mouse looking for a warm place to hide out wouldn’t you find a way into an RV if possible? Before putting your RV away in storage make sure all holes are sealed. Look around your unit and think like a mouse. Seal everything, even the tiniest hole.
Remove All Linens and Food
Linens and blankets provide a welcome home for pests. Do yourself a favor and remove them from your RV. If a critter finds its way in, it’ll be less likely to stay without a warm place to burrow.
Because your hungry guests might be looking for food, be sure to also remove any non-perishable foods that animals might find appealing. Crackers, spices, and anything else that you might consider keeping in over the winter should come out. We’re assuming that you’ll have already removed perishable foods.
Scrub and Vacuum Everything
After spending a summer cooking and living in your RV, chances are it could use a deep cleaning. Scrub every hard surface with a safe disinfectant and thoroughly vacuum any carpeted areas.
