Ah, spring. The weather gets warmer, the flowers are blooming, and you know what that means– it’s time to start cleaning. Spring cleaning feels great when it’s over, but it isn’t always so fun while you’re in the midst of it. However, there are things you can do to make the process go more smoothly. Regardless of the season, if you’re thinking about doing a thorough home cleaning, check out these tips.
Clean Every Corner
If the thought of giving your home a deep thorough clean gives you nightmares, enlist some help! Home deep cleaning services exist, and they can take a huge load off of your plate. A home deep clean tackles more than just surface dirt and dust, but it really takes care of the hidden dirt and germs tucked into every crevice of your home. After it’s done, you’ll be able to focus on more manageable tasks.
Once your home is deep cleaned, it is much easier to keep up on cleaning the day-to-day messes that occur. The task doesn’t seem as overwhelming because you are starting from a fresh slate! Keep up on it a little bit each day and next year’s cleaning will be a breeze.
Do A Closet Overhaul
If your closet is jammed with clothes and shoes and you can’t fit another thing, that means it’s time to give your closet some extra attention. Unload everything that you haven’t worn in a year; yes, even those beloved jeans that you swear you’ll fit into again. If the items are gently worn, in good condition, or still have tags, donate them to a homeless shelter or clothing drive in your area. Everything else? Toss in the trash.
If you want to keep on top of your closet and not overfill it in the future, here’s a tip: Start out by facing all of your hangers the same way. When you wear an item of clothing and return it to the closet, turn the hanger the opposite way. During your next closet clean-out session, you can easily see what has been worn and what hasn’t.
Take it Outside
Now that the inside of your house is looking spiffy, it’s time to show the outside some love! If you hate yard work, hire a landscaper to do some basic cleanup. A fresh mow, a little weeding, and some mulch can turn a plain-looking yard into the talk of the neighborhood.
While you’re out there, don’t forget the exterior of the house itself. Shine the outer windows, clean out the gutters, and, if necessary, powerwash the outside of your house. This, along with the lawn cleanup, will go a long way in improving the outside aesthetics of your home.
Spring cleaning can seem overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be! Break your house into sections and focus on one task at a time. If you still need assistance, there are plenty of professionals out there who have the tools to help you get the job done. Springtime is a time of renewal, and giving your living space an overhaul is a perfect way to embrace the season.
