Believe it or not, it’s the time of the year to think about spring cleaning your home. We spend the most time indoors during winter months, trying to keep warm also means the same dirty air recycles through your home all winter long. Cleaning is important for everyone and you owe it to yourself and a good cleaning routine is essential. Especially when most of us now working from home, having a clean house is even more important than usual to make it as comfortable and cozy as possible. Here are spring cleaning tips to add to your routine.

Use a checklist

I believe most of us already have a checklist since we have been constantly cleaning our home. Checklists will help you to never forget a spot again, you can write it on a whiteboard or a paper maybe download a free checklist on the internet. A cleaning checklist will help you organize like a pro.

Declutter

Trying to clean an area that is over-cluttered is not a good way to start, it will take you longer than expected to clean up try to start cleaning room per room. It would be good practice to allow yourself some minutes before you clean to have a quick rundown of things you need to do.

Set aside some time to organize your closets, dust, and organize your office, You may be surprised how fresh you feel after you eliminate unnecessary stress from your life.

Always Work from Top to Bottom

It’s important to start from the ceiling down. This will force dirt downward and keep you from having to re-dust or re-clean your space. Horizontal surfaces in your house like tables and countertops are not just household items, this area is often forgotten so dust and dirt will nestle and build-up.

Look underneath the furniture

It would be very easy to just run the vacuum over the floor, mop the tiles and call it a day, but every now and then you need to give some extra attention to the floor, once a month, move the furniture and get the hoover nozzle under, in between and behind the cupboards. A lot of dust lying around that you’re breathing in every day, and you may even find some lost treasures.

Deep Clean the Kitchen

Spring is the perfect time to take everything out and wipe them down before using that special occasion cutlery for your parties. Delve into the deepest corners of the kitchen cupboards and get rid of those tins, jars and sachets, if you have items that are in date but you know you’re never going to eat, gather them all into a bag and donate them to a food

Refresh the Bed

Your bed is likely the most used piece of furniture in your house. Although we regularly clean our sheets, most people forget to give any attention to the mattress itself. Every few months try to include your mattress in your cleaning routine. You can flip or turn the mattress to avoid sleeping in your body shape dent over and over again. You’ll help protect your mattress by investing in a mattress topper also.

Clean the guttering and windows

Clean window treatments like curtains and valences, which can hold an unhealthy amount of dust and allergens, scrub both the insides and outsides of your windows to let in more light and brighten up your home. Over time, guttering becomes clogged with leaves, twigs, and debris, resulting in an inefficient drainage system. It also creates an inviting home for unwanted pests and rodents, cleaning your gutters depends on your surroundings but as a general rule, they should be cleaned in autumn and spring.

In addition, wash removable items, like bins and shelves, in warm, soapy water. Then, wipe down the interior with a clean soapy cloth. Follow these cleaning tips to make your season change a breeze.
