Spring cleaning is that yearly ritual that everybody dreads, but a satisfactory feeling after a thorough and deep clean of your house is one unlike no other. This deep clean is a way to improve the quality of air in your home, it allows you to feel less stressed, more focused, and inherently more productive.
1. Make a List and Check it Twice
You don’t want to spend weeks conducting your deep clean. The best way to be efficient when handling such a large task is by writing a list and checking it twice.
We recommend you divide the workload by rooms and start from top to bottom. A great way to do this is by creating a checklist for each area of the house.
2. Don’t Just Clean, Organize and De-Clutter
Housework is only the first hurdle when it comes to spring cleaning. You also need to organize and de-clutter your home. You may as well get it all over with at once.
Identify the problem areas in your home (like your garage, pantry, wardrobe, or attic) and sort your personal items into four piles. Either throw away, donate, organize, or put items away in storage to give your home an instant refresh.
3. Hire Professionals for Certain Jobs
Some jobs just won’t look as immaculate as they could because they require a team of professionals. The best jobs that you could pay for include professional carpet cleaning, driveway pressure washing, air duct cleaning, and upholstery cleaning.
If you have pets at home, getting rid of stains or smells can be difficult on your own. Using a team of professionals will allow you to relax and know that the job will be executed perfectly.
4. Get to Grips with Seasonal Tasks
Although it’s called a spring clean, you can really do this whenever you please. If you do more than once a year, it’s worth getting the seasonal tasks done and dusted too.
For example, you may want to put your winter wardrobe and decor away to welcome spring. Other seasonal tasks include cleaning the grill, cleaning the gutter, and setting up the patio.
5. Stick to New Cleaning Habits
Once you have completed most of your spring cleaning, you should create a new schedule and develop proactive habits. Include the most important tasks in your weekly plan and less vital chores in your monthly plan. This way, when spring comes around again, you won’t have nearly half as much work to do.
Not only will you feel more at ease in a clean and de-cluttered home, but you will also reduce the risk of allergies from dust that has built up over the past months. You will feel more inclined to receive visitors and welcome them into your squeaky clean home.
Having an organized home can even help you prevent any nasty accidents, such as falls or bumps, from happening. What are you waiting for? Make your list and breeze through your spring cleaning with our 5 simple steps.
