Winter’s chill is finally coming to an end, and we can now look forward to the warm weather and gentle breeze of Spring. Along with Spring’s fresh blooms comes a sense of renewal – and what better way to renew your space than with a little bit of spring cleaning? This cleaning tradition is the perfect way to freshen up your home ahead of the spring and summer seasons. If you’re looking to get a head start on your cleaning, you’re in the right place! We’ve put together a quick list to make this yearly clean-up an easy breezy process.
1. Get organized
Everyone knows that getting organized is the first step to accomplishing anything – spring cleaning included. Before you start vacuuming, dusting and throwing things out, you should probably assess your home. Make a list of the spaces that need the most cleaning and those that need the least. After this, you may want to create a cleaning schedule – we suggest tackling the toughest rooms first – but whatever works for you is best. Assessing your home and creating a cleaning schedule will prevent you from getting overwhelmed. Spring cleaning is a lot of work. Getting organized and pacing yourself is the best way to avoid stress and get the job done.
Before you dive head first into a deep clean, you’ve got to de-clutter your space. Getting rid of the clutter that’s piled up over the winter makes the cleaning process a lot easier. There won’t be any obstacles in your way, so you won’t miss any spots when you’re fiercely sweeping the floor or dusting down surfaces. So, organize your living room, clean out your closet and tidy up your home office, and if there’s anything you just don’t have a place for anymore, don’t hesitate to toss it out!
3. Gather your tools
There’s nothing worse than being ready for a day of spring cleaning only to realize that you’re not sure where you kept your cleaning supplies. If you’re like most people who stash their cleaning products in different places around the house, now’s the time to fetch them from their hiding spots. Having your cleaning tools easily accessible and ready to go makes the process much easier. This way, you’ll know which tools and products you have in your arsenal and won’t waste any valuable cleaning time wondering where they are.
4. Clean from top to bottom
Now it’s time to dust the shelves, shine the floors and buff the cushions, but, not so fast! Do you know that there’s an easy, hassle-free way to clean? When you start spring cleaning your home, it's essential to work from top to bottom. Start with your ceiling and work your way down to the floor. This will ensure that you don’t have to re-clean your space.
5. Share the work
As we’ve said before, spring cleaning is a big job, and sometimes it can be overwhelming. However, a great way to make to make things more manageable and more fun is to get the whole family involved. Don’t hesitate to get your loved ones involved in the cleaning process. You’ll get a lot more work done and have a great time while doing it!
Spring cleaning is a yearly tradition that lets you spruce up your home and gives it a fresh look. At the same time, it can be a lot to take on all at once. However, with a little organization and some willing team members, cleaning out your home can be a breeze.
