Spring Cleaning Tips

 

Getting started is always the hardest part of initiating your chore of spring cleaning. If you create a checklist of tasks you need to complete you will make your life a lot easier. This way you can check off the tasks that you have already completed. Making a spring cleaning checklist is as easy as walking through your home and adding the tasks that you need to do to your checklist.     You probably already know what needs to be addressed, but sometimes we tend to overlook things when it is not on paper. And you will be able to see what you have accomplished by looking at your checklist when it is all finished.

 

 

 

First, make sure that you have all of the cleaning supplies that you will need. Also gather all the tools you will need to clean like: a broom, mop, rags, etc. 

It is best to clean from top to bottom (ceilings and high places first, move on to dusting, and save floors for last).

 

Kitchen and Dining Room

 

Start by clearing your cabinets and drawers out so you can wipe out the crumbs and dirt that has accumulated. Then move on to cleaning your appliances (refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, etc). While you are cleaning the inside of the refrigerator and freezer you might as well get rid of any food that is bad or has been in the refrigerator too long. After you have wiped the counters down it is time to clean your walls, baseboards, doors, door jams, dust cobwebs off the ceiling, and wash the windows. This will complete the kitchen after you have mopped the floors. 

 

Living room, Den, Great room, Bedrooms, Office

 

Polish any wood furniture, clean the television screens, paddle fans, and blinds or curtains.

 

Bathroom

 

When cleaning your bathrooms start by taking your shower curtain down and either bleach it in the washing machine or replace it with a new one. Then scrub your toilet and your bathtub. Next clean the cabinets and sinks. Wash the baseboards, walls, doors and don’t forget to clean the mirror. Lastly mop or vacuum the floor in your bathroom, and you are done.

 

Tip: Spring cleaning not only involves cleaning inside your home, it also needs to be carried to the outside porch, sunroom, deck, etc”¦ Usually this only requires sweeping the floor, dusting for cobwebs, and washing windows. This will be noticed, and it will add to the cleanliness of the inside of your home. for more cleaning tips please follow this link
