Spring Cleaning in Your Home

Spring is the perfect time to freshen up your home and get rid of all the clutter that has accumulated over the winter months. Here are some tips to help you get started on your spring cleaning:

Start with a Plan

Make a list of all the areas you want to tackle, and create a schedule for cleaning each one. Be honest with yourself when making deadlines, and give yourself enough time to accomplish each task. Identify which rooms you want to prioritize to get done early.

Dust & Vacuum the Nooks and Crannies, Especially with Pets

Pay special attention to doorways, windowsills, and baseboards. With allergy season already in full bloom, try your best to stay as dust-free as you can.

Don’t Forget About Outdoor Spaces

Now is a good time to give your porch or patio a good scrubbing and wash any outdoor furniture that has been collecting dirt all winter. You will want to sit out and enjoy the summer nights ahead, so create a space that makes you comfortable.

Once Cleaned & Sanitized, Take Time to Organize

Declutter closets, drawers, and cabinets from clothes that do not fit and items that you no longer need. Donate items that no longer serve you, and find homes for everything else. Also, look for areas in your home that are overwhelming you, and brainstorm systems you can put into place to better handle those belongings.
