Many people welcome spring by giving their house a good deep clean. There’s just something wonderful about getting your house completely clean right when the weather warms up. If you’re wondering where to start, we can help. Read on to learn the best way to tackle your spring cleaning this year.
Create a List
Before starting to clean, create a checklist tailored to your home and needs. A list helps keep you organized and ensures you don’t miss anything when cleaning your home. Who wants to finish cleaning only to look up and see cobwebs in the corner? A checklist can ensure you get everything done the first time.
Wash Windows on a Cloudy Day
If it’s too sunny when you wash your windows, you’ll end up with lots of streaks. Washing your windows on a cloudy day prevents the cleaning solution from drying too fast, ensuring a streak-free clean.
Don’t Forget Sliding Door Tracks
Many people forget to clean the tracks of their sliding door, but this can lead to problems later. If too much debris builds up in the tracks, it can transfer to your carpets or cause issues with slider operation. Scrub the tracks of your slider with a toothbrush then use your vacuum to remove the debris. Finish with a wet sponge.
Clean Your Baseboards
Spring cleaning is the perfect opportunity to address all of the areas you overlook on a daily basis. Use a sponge and a squirt of dish soap and scrub your baseboards, door frames, and walls.
Deep Clean Carpets
Using a quality carpet deep cleaner, clean all carpets with an appropriate cleaning solution. Make sure you follow the directions on your carpet cleaner and let carpets dry completely before re-entering freshly cleaned rooms.
Replace Window Treatments
Curtains and other window treatments can collect a lot of dust over time. If you don’t regularly clean these items with your vacuum, it might be a good idea to replace them in the spring.
Organize Your Belongings
Using storage units and shelves, declutter and organize your belongings. If you feel overwhelmed by clutter, break your organizing into short power sessions.
