5 Tips for Successful Spring Cleaning

Spring has SPRUNG!

Does your home still feel stuck with winter blues... Well spring cleaning is the best way to freshen up your home & mood. Here is some cleaning tips our team uses & highly recommend!

Clean Room by Room
Approaching your house room by room is the most effective way to deep clean it. Create cleaning checklists for each room to help you get organized and to remind you of the areas that need extra attention. Feel free to skip the areas that have been cleaned recently, and focus on the parts of your home that were largely neglected over the winter.


Organize and Clear the Clutter
One of the biggest parts of spring cleaning is often getting rid of clutter. Sorting your belongings into four categories—trash, give away, store, or put away—can be effective as you go through the spring-cleaning process. Move the clutter out as soon as possible.


Get the Household Involved
Make spring cleaning a family activity. Even young children can be excellent helpers. Assign age-appropriate chores, so everyone feels included. Try throwing on some music as you all clean or establishing a household reward as an incentive to get the work done.


Tackle the Seasonal Chores
Many chores need to be done seasonally, especially in preparation for warmer weather. So, incorporate them into your spring-cleaning routine to get them out of the way early. For instance, tackle outdoor chores as soon as the weather warms up. Also, store winter clothing, bedding, decor, and other items.


Establish New Cleaning Habits
Spring cleaning is a great opportunity to establish ongoing cleaning habits, which can make the next spring cleaning even easier. For instance, don't try to do all of your spring cleaning in one day or even one weekend. Instead, tackle items on your spring cleaning to-do list for just 15 minutes each day. That will help to get you in the habit of tidying up for 10 to 15 minutes per day even after you're done with your spring cleaning tasks.
