Not only does your home feel, look and be cleaner, but it improves the mood of everyone in your household. So let’s roll up our sleeves and dive into the best tips n tricks of spring cleaning 101.
Step One: Develop a Plan
You must make a game plan for your spring cleaning process, allowing you to prioritize your task, identify problem areas, and list needed cleaning products and an estimated timeline. Spring cleaning can be overwhelming by itself, recruit friends and family, and make it enjoyable! Alongside organizing what you need and make it enjoyable!
Step Two: Declutter
The most vital part of spring cleaning happens before you officially start the physical cleaning process. The process of decluttering your home seems like a daunting task, especially when you are thinking of your home as a whole. The best plan of action is to begin by focusing on one space or room at a time. Start at the top or bottom of your home, choose a room, and get rid of anything you no longer want, need, or use; either donate, sell, or trash anything you find in this process. Once you have completed one room, move on to the next and continue until you have hit every room in your home.
Step Three: Deep Clean
Now that you have a game plan and got rid of clutter that you no longer need, it’s time to begin the process of deep cleaning your home. This means hitting every nook and cranny of your place, focusing on one room at a time to make it less overwhelming, and hitting every spot, nook, and cranny of every room you cover. Start high and move low; begin scrubbing, dusting, or vacuuming ceiling fans, drapes, top of shelves, and anywhere high. Then move towards medium height, wiping dressers, countertops, windows, and desks. Finally, vacuum the low parts of your home, mop, and sweep under counters, floors, carpets, and more. Starting high and moving low will ensure no rocks are unturned and you hit every spot of your home. Once again, when you finish a room, move on to the next until everything has been cleaned.
