Spring Cleaning Tips to Jump Start this Season

Even though spring cleaning has become an annual tradition for many people, some households are still having trouble completing the task. If you’re having a hard time with spring cleaning, let this article be your guide to jump start this season right.

Start Smart

Before doing any cleaning you need to make a plan first. A properly filled out and executed plan makes it easier and faster to clean your home. There are many ways you can improve your spring cleaning methods. Applying the following tips ensures that you won’t have a hard time cleaning:

  • Start Early. Your body is more attuned to begin cleaning when there’s sunlight.
  • Get help. More hands mean more cleaning is done.
  • Assign cleaning tasks to your team to lessen confusion and increase productivity.
  • Instead of cleaning room-to-room, use the top-down approach. Cleaning the highest areas first makes it easier to sweep up leftover debris after.
  • Don’t start cleaning without any of the essentials. Have the necessary cleaning products and equipment at hand.
  • Ready your rooms by decluttering the area. Clearing the rooms from any obstructions and distractions keeps the cleaning rhythm continuous and smooth.

Shake-Off and Remove Dirt and Dust

Dirt and dust that have accumulated throughout winter will make your indoor environment feel heavy and clogged. The only way to get rid of these irritants is to start dusting, sweeping, and vacuuming your property. Remember to clean every corner of the room and sweep under your furniture and appliances. When it comes to fabrics, upholstery, and carpets, they need to be treated with a deep clean. Deep cleaning readies them for another year of wear.

Finish Your Floors

If you want your floors to last another year, spring cleaning gives you the opportunity to have them waxed or sealed. Using the correct wax, floor cleaner or floor sealer improves the strength of your flooring while giving it a little shine at the same time. You can find the proper floor cleaning solutions in your local hardware stores.

Clean the Windows

It’s a given that clean windows invites sunlight into your home. However, when it comes to cleaning windows, it’s better to have as little sunshine as possible. Cleaning your windows during a bright sunny day dries up the cleaning solution quicker – creating streaks on the glass. The best weather to clean your windows is on a cloudy day.

Clean Light Fixtures and Ceiling Fans

Dust and particles can also settle behind or on top of your lighting and ceiling fans. Cleaning these areas might seem like an impossible task but they are doable. When dusting light fixtures you can reach, use a microfiber or lint-free cloth. For ceiling fans and lights that are out of your reach, ditch the ladder and use an extendable duster instead. As for grimy light bulbs, use a cloth that’s lightly damped with vinegar to make them clear. Just remember to wash the bulbs once they’re cool to the touch and your hands are dry.

Wash the Walls, Cabinets, and Woodwork

Your walls, cabinets, and woodwork might not be the type of things that need a good scrubbing. However, lathering them with a dishwashing detergent solution removes dirt that clings to the surfaces. For this tip, you need to use two buckets: one for the dishwashing detergent solution and the other for when you wring the sponge. Once the surfaces are clean, dry them with a clean cloth.

Stay Organized

To keep your indoor environment clean and tidy, you need to stay organized. Having designated containers and bins decreases the clutter in your surroundings throughout the year. Staying organized also lessens the workload of your next cleaning session.
