It’s amazing how fast a year comes and goes. And here we are, right on the cusp of spring. We may be glad for the end of winter, but we know very few people who relish the thought of spring cleaning.
Even though most of us clean our homes routinely, that usually doesn’t take care of those deep cleans. No matter how often we clean our house throughout the year, there are those areas that collect dirt in hidden areas or those hard to clean areas that get put off until the “big clean”.
Cleaning Doesn’t Have to Be an Overwhelming Task
Spring cleaning the house can be overwhelming if you’re tackling it alone. Get the family involved. Make it fun by offering an incentive. Once you have some helpers assembled, spring cleaning seems a little less daunting.
Start with a Checklist
Have you ever cleaned and cleaned and felt like you made little headway? Take each room one at a time.
Start with a checklist, by room. Ascertain what areas will require cleaning, starting at one corner of the room and go around the room in a circular fashion. By thoroughly cleaning each room and checking it off your list, you get a feeling of accomplishment. You can skip over areas that get cleaned as part of a weekly routine. Focus on those areas that get neglected most of the year.
As Nike Says, Just Do It
Bite the bullet. There are those areas of your home that need to be cleaned once the weather gets nice. But don’t wait until a beautiful summer day when you could be spending it on better things than cleaning. It’s a great time to get some of those outdoor areas done like patios and windows so they’ll be ready for those summer days when you’d rather just be enjoying yourself.
Organization is Key
Get organized. So much of cleaning is just having things put in their place. But what happens if you don’t have a designated place? Time to clear out the clutter and unused items that you’ve been hanging on to. What’s left can now be stored properly in an organized way, so you know exactly where everything is. And purging makes cleaning so much simpler.
Upholstery and Carpeting
What about your upholstery and carpet? This is a perfect time to get that layer of winter dirt off everything, including your furniture and rugs. Rented carpet cleaners are easy to use and can make your home look and smell fresh and clean.
Hire a Professional
The easiest way to deal with dirt that has accumulated over the winter months is to hire a professional. When your life is busy (whose isn’t?), then having a professional cleaning service attend to your spring cleaning can be a lifesaver.
