Get a Head Start On Your Spring Cleaning

 

Nothing feels better than a clean and organized home. Check out our great ideas for getting a head start on your spring cleaning.

Are you approaching the major spring cleaning of your home that you try to tackle once a year? There’s nothing like the feeling of decluttering, organizing a deep clean and making your home fresh and new again. As much as the better weather and lighter mornings can energize you and make you want to dive in, there can also be a feeling of becoming a little overwhelmed if you have a lot of stuff to sort through or a larger home. It can seem like a large job for one person, with lots of different areas to tackle and a lot of accumulated possessions to sort through. So what is the best way to tackle it and get the job done in the most effective manner?

Create Your Plan

Deep cleaning a whole house effectively can cause a little bit of minor disruption. Some parts of the job depend on other parts, so if you simply dive in to the nearest thing without developing a plan of attack, you may find yourself having to do some things over again. To operate with the most efficiency, decide which room to focus on first and be methodical about it. List out the jobs in each room in the order they make sense, starting with window cleaning and dusting light fixtures through to jobs such as shampooing the carpet and steaming the upholstery. Room cleaning checklists will help to keep you focused and on track.

Below are some of our cleaning posts to help you make the spring cleaning or even daily cleaning much easier!

Delegate

If your spring cleaning chore list is looking huge, don’t be shy about parcelling some of it out. This might mean hiring some help if it’s in your budget! For example, finda company who deep cleans ovens, does windows or even  hiring a decorator to touch up your masonry paint. Or it could simply mean getting the family involved too. If you have kids, identify the age-appropriate jobs on your list and give them each one a couple of things to tick off. Sharing the tasks will help to lighten the load, and free you up to focus on the most important things. One thing that helps the most in keeping a home clean so that deeper cleaning is easier is making sure everything has a place.  The post below gives some great advice on how to do this.
