Top tips to spring clean your home

Get rid of the winter blues by freshening up your home with a good ol’ Spring cleaning. Yes, it is that time of the year! Time for giving your home an inside out, thorough cleaning. This means windows, doors, walls, floors, everything! If you don’t know where to start or maybe want to cut down on your cleaning time – I’ve put together some Spring Cleaning tips and tricks.

Schedule it and organise it.

It’s important to have a plan of action to know which room to tackle first and what areas need your focus. Schedule your time accordingly to the tasks you have to do in each room. This article on Oprah shares a Spring cleaning checklist to guarantee you’ll finish your Spring cleaning in one day.

Clear the clutter.

Declutter your home before starting to clean. Otherwise, once your home is sparkling clean the last thing you’ll want to do is to take everything out of the drawers and wardrobes to sort them out (even more if it is that one miscellaneous drawer in the kitchen!).

The Handy Squad, London handyman business, published an article on their blog about easy winter home improvement projects, in which they mention the importance of decluttering your home, even before Spring starts. They refer to Marie Kondo’s method of asking yourself if you need and love certain belongings, if the answer is yes, keep them, if no, either throw them away, sell them or give them to charity.

From top to bottom.

Do your cleaning from the ceiling down, this will ensure that any dust and debris will fall on the floor and can easily be vacuumed after. This will prevent you from having to clean your floors again, so don’t forget to start from top to bottom.

If this is something you struggle with for various reasons, you might consider using a cleaning service such as Cleandy to help you out with this.

Think about seasonal chores.

As the warm weather is on its way, Good House Keeping recommends starting to get your garden and patio furniture ready for lounging. But don’t stop there! Whilst you are taking care of your outdoor area, why not do some other seasonal outdoor chores? From pressure washing patios, and cleaning the windows to treating outdoor wooden furniture and more.
