Believe it or not, the time for spring cleaning is just around the corner. Spring cleaning is more than just throwing out unused items. It’s also about deep cleaning and reorganizing your home to make your living space comfortable and pleasant. If you’re dreading spring cleaning, here are our top tips and tricks to make the annual big clean a little easier this time around.

Make A Schedule

Scope out each area of your home and figure out which areas need the most work or require more cleaning. Those are often great places to start. Having a plan of when and how you’re tackling each room will help keep you focused throughout the cleaning process.

Gather Supplies

Before you get started, make sure to gather all the needed supplies and equipment. This way, you can be in your cleaning groove with as few distractions as possible. You may also want to call a waste solutions company for a garbage bin rental. It’ll save you from having all your junk piled up around the front of your house until the next scheduled pick-up.

Declutter

Did you know that a disorganized home can subconsciously add to your stress levels? Not to mention the health implications of inhaling collected dust on untouched belongings. Decluttering is the first step in your spring cleaning process. Set aside time to go through your clothes, paperwork and the dreaded junk drawer to get rid of anything you no longer need. Whether it’s for recycling, your local charity or the junk, you’ll feel lighter afterwards, we promise!

Work From Top To Bottom

When thinking about how to spring clean your home, the most efficient and effective way is to start from the ceiling down so that you will not have to re-clean your space. Using a vacuum with an extension hose, get the cobwebs and any collected dust from your ceilings and fans. Then move on to your furniture and other household items before finally cleaning all dust and debris off the floors.

Windows And Walls

Walls and windows can also collect dust over time. You can use a damp towel to wipe down walls, blinds and window screens (starting from the top!).

Kitchen And Bathroom

The kitchen and bathroom can feel the most intimidating to deep clean. Here are some common trouble areas:

  • Wipe down the cabinets
  • Go through the pantry and refrigerator- it’s time to throw away that jar of jam that’s been sitting there for a year!
  • Change or wash the shower curtains
  • Go through all your cosmetics and skincare products as well as the medicine cabinets and throw away any expired items
