Tips for Successful Spring Cleaning

March 10, 2020

Spring is in the air! Well… almost. Why not get a head start on your spring cleaning? It’s the perfect time to tidy up your home before the busy days of spring and summer roll around. Everybody goes about cleaning and decluttering their home a little differently, but here’s some tips to help you be successful!

Clean and Clear Clutter

When it comes to spring cleaning, not only should you clean your house, you should take that time to declutter as well. It’s a great time to purge some items in your home you don’t have use for that are simply taking up space when they don’t need to be. Whether you want to donate or throw unneeded items in the trash, get rid of it! This is a great way to clear up space and freshen up your home.

Clean in Sections

Don’t let the big picture of having to do a deep clean of your entire home stress you out. Focusing on one room at a time will make your task more manageable. You also don’t need to do all of your spring cleaning in one day. Rather than trying to do it in one day, pick a few rooms in your home that you are going to clean during that particular day. Then, pick a few dates in the near future to clean the remaining rooms in your home.

Get the Family Involved

You shouldn’t have to do the cleaning alone! Besides, your family members live in the home too so they should put in the time and effort to get the place in good shape. You could assign each person to handle a specific room or tackle each room together. Either way, you could make it a project for the whole family!

Make New Cleaning Habits

Now that you’ve gone through the entire process of deep cleaning your home, it may be time to make some new rules to keep your home cleaner year-round. You could set aside 10-15 minutes each day to dedicate to routine cleaning, so your home is always looking it’s best. You could also make it a habit to get rid of things you don’t use or need by setting aside time once a month to go through your closet or other areas of your house to get rid of those unneeded items. This will make your spring-cleaning task much easier the following year.
