Spring Into Cleaning With These Tips

Spring cleaning

Spring is on its way, so it’s nearly time to tackle the season’s biggest job: spring cleaning! It’s the perfect time to refresh your living space and enjoy the benefits of improving your health (no dust!) and mental well-being (no clutter!). With these tips, you'll be well on the way to your spring-cleaning journey.

Declutter. The first step in spring cleaning is to toss anything that you no longer need or use. This includes old clothes, outdated electronics and anything else taking up space in your home. Take the time to reorganize your closets and drawers, rearranging what you do need. 

Dust and Vacuum. By attacking all the surfaces in your home with a duster and a vacuum including furniture, shelves and baseboards, you’ll be helping to remove allergens and improving the air quality in your home. Vacuum and steam clean your carpets and rugs to remove winter dirt, food bits, pet hair and dust. 

Clean Kitchen and Bathrooms. Scrub your kitchen and bathroom, including sinks, toilets and showers to remove built-up grime, water stains and bacteria. Clean your windows and mirrors inside and out, removing any streaks and smudges for a sparkling, clear finish. 

Wash Bedding and Curtains. Wash your bedding and curtains, including pillows, stuffed toys and cushions, to remove any allergens and dust while freshening up your sleeping space. 

Clean Outdoor Spaces and Tackle Deep Cleaning. Clean your outdoor spaces, including your deck, patio and yard to remove any debris. This refresher will make your outdoor spaces inviting. Tackle the tough stuff too you may have been putting off (until spring!) such as cleaning the oven or washing your walls. 

Get Professional Help. If you're feeling overwhelmed, lack time or would rather do something else, consider hiring a professional cleaning service to help you with your spring cleaning. They have the tools and experience to get the job done quickly and efficiently.
