It’s spring time! The sun is out, flowers are blooming but your home is still cluttered. One of the best ways to refresh your living space after a cold and busy winter is through Spring Cleaning! Below are some often, overlooked tips to help you make the most out of your spring cleaning.

Tip 1: Make a schedule

Evaluate the work that needs to be done. Which areas of your home require the most work? Which areas do you skip during your routine cleaning? Those are the the best places to start.

Tip 2: Declutter

Clutter often brings psychological stress of from being disorganized.

Set time aside to:

  • organize your closets
  • dust and organize your office
  • look through your junk drawer

Tip 3: Always work top to bottom

It’s important to work from the ceiling down. This will force debris downward and keep you from having to re-dust or re-clean your space.

Tip 4: Use a HEPA vaccuum

A high-quality HEPA vacuum catches particles you can’t even see. It traps pet dander, allergens and all household particles in your home.

Tip 5: Go green

Want to start your spring cleaning off right? You could do this by avoiding exposure to chemicals and toxins. A steam cleaner is one of the most versatile and best tools to do this with.

Tip 6: Don’t forget the windows and walls

People always clean their floors and surface areas but not all dust settles there. It’s important to wipe down blinds, walls and even the window screens outside (starting from the top).

Tip 7: Kitchen and bathroom help

Kitchen

  • wipe down cabinets
  • go through pantry and refridgerator
  • use gentle cleaners or a steam cleaner on stainless steel

  • go through medicine cabinet and remove expired items

Tip 8: Don’t forget about YOUR AIR

Tip 9: Have allergies? Protect yourself

Cleaning can unsettle dust, if you suffer from allergies wear gloves, masks, scarves and even hairnets to avoid skin irritations and allergic reactions.
