Spring is here which means its time for a deep cleaning of your home. It is a satisfying way to prepare for the warm weather and fresh up after a long winter inside. Here are some tips to get the best out of your spring cleaning.
Taking some time every so often to de-clutter your items is a great way to stay organize and be more efficient. Studies have also shown that a disorganized home can lead to increased stress. Getting rid of items can help release weight off your shoulders and help you start the year off fresh. A great way to start is to split your items into items you want to trash, give-away, store or put-away.
For some, the idea of spring cleaning your entire home can be a daunting task. However, if you break it down room-by-room it can help you focus on going through one small specific area at a time, finishing small goals along the way.
Clean Top to Bottom
When cleaning your home, it’s important to work starting at the ceiling. This will make sure all the debris and dust will fall down and prevent you from having to re-dust or re-clean. Next, dust your furniture and other items to get rid of all the fallen dust and debris.
Keep Cleaning Products to a Minimum
There are a ton of cleaning products in stores right now and it can be overwhelming. Keeping your cabinet stocked with only a few essentials will help simplify your cleaning strategy. All-purpose cleaner and microfiber cloths are two of the best products that can be used to clean multiple items.
Don’t Forget About Your Air
One of the most important tasks during spring cleaning is replacing your HVAC and furnace filters. This helps prevent dust and germ particles to be spread around your home. This improves your air quality and helps keep you healthier.
