It’s that time of year when the weather turns warmer and the plants start to bloom and blossom. Spring is a great time to open the windows and let some fresh air into your house. It also is the time of year that most people do their spring cleaning. This can include going through closets and clothes and putting up cold weather items. It could be the time to complete “honey do” lists and light maintenance tasks that may have been neglected during the winter. Finally, spring is the perfect time for spring cleaning; major cleaning projects and clean outs.
Start outside with the entrance to your home. Now that the leaves have stopped falling off the trees you can make sure that your doorway is inviting. Start by sweeping the pathway up your front walk, wash down the door and door jam, then sweep off and clean the door mat or get a new one to welcome your guests. You can clean off light fixtures and signs by polishing them to a bright shine.
Bathroom & Kitchen Cleaning
Once inside it is always nice to give the bathrooms and kitchen a good once over. You can clear out and organize cupboards and make sure that anything you don’t need is discarded. Making sure that the counters and sinks are washed out and if they are stainless steel you can use a special cleaner to make them gleam.
Floors are usually a big part of spring cleaning. Tile and grout can take a beating during the winter months with everyone walking in after the rain and snow. Cleaning the tile and grout and adding a good grout sealer can help keep it looking clean all spring long. Carpets take just as bad of a beating with all the extra indoor traffic during the cold months. Going over the carpet and cleaning any stains is the best way to start. Then taking the time to edge and clear behind large pieces of furniture can help keep the dust from floating back up.
Dusting can be the best way to feel good about spring cleaning. All the dust that has settled down can be wiped away, and letting in some fresh air through windows and doors can help improve air quality. Making sure that you clear off bookshelves and rearranging the books can leave the room looking clean and organized.
