9 Tips for Effective Spring Cleaning

9 Tips for Effective Spring Cleaning

It’s the time of year that we all love. The weather is perfect, not too hot, not too cold. Family events seem to happen every day. That’s why it’s so important to join into the dreaded “spring cleaning” ritual. You’ve done it before, but it seems overwhelming every time the next year comes. However, here are a few tips to make your spring cleaning incredibly quick and easy.

1. Just start.

This is always the hardest part for most people, whether it be homework, a task at work, or a chore you have to do at home, starting that task always seems to be the hardest part of the entire task. Once you start cleaning, you may find that you won’t want to stop until you are completely finished.

2. Start at the top of your house and move down.

If you have a two story house, this tip can help you reduce the stress you might have during spring cleaning. Starting with the part of your house that no one can see will also motivate you to finish the other, more visible half.

3. Wash all of your windows.

When you get rid of all of the streaks it makes the whole house look more tidy.

4. Wipe down any countertops and appliances you have.

Countertops and appliances are fingerprint magnets, try to wash any grease or oils off these as well.

5. Mop the floors in your house.

Clean floors make the entire house feel more hygienic, you don’t want someone to feel like they can’t walk barefoot in your house.

6. Clean all of the bathrooms.

Scrub the toilets, showers, sinks, etc. Refill any used toilet paper and soap you might have in your bathrooms.

7. Clear out your fridge and pantry of old food.

You may be holding on to food that you will never eat, or food that has simply gone bad. Be sure to empty and organize your fridge and pantries to feel more on top of controlling your household’s food.

8. Replace your air conditioner’s filters.

Many air filters for your home will have a recommended interval to replace them at. Most of which recommend replacing them at the beginning of a new season, or every three months. Replacing your filters during spring cleaning can be a great way to get this simple task out of the way, and according to certain studies, changing your filters at the recommended interval can actually save you money.

9. Get rid of your old junk.

While reorganizing all of your things, you may find a lot of different things that you are certain you don’t need. It never hurts to make a pile of all of this stuff so it can be easily removed from your home. This is where a junk removal service can come in handy with your spring cleaning. You may be unable to do the junk hauling yourself because you may not have the right vehicle for the job. A trash hauling company makes quick work of the final part of your spring cleaning, and takes all of the stress out of it. In many cases, it’s as easy as pointing at what you want removed and watching it get taken out of your house.

Following these simple tips can make spring cleaning a lot quicker and a lot less stressful. Happy cleaning!
