SPRING CLEANING

 

Image title Spring cleaning is the

perfect time to get your home back into tip-top shape after the winter

season. However, it can be very

overwhelming and time-consuming if you aren’t careful. In order to get everything tidy without it 

taking the entire spring season, follow the tips below to save time.


  Create a checklist for your

cleaning. This is the time to do all that

‘deep down’ cleaning that isn’t done. Therefore, it’s nice to have a list of everything you want to get done

while spring cleaning. Prioritize the list based on efficiency to get things done even faster. Here

are some Spring Cleaning Checklists for the rooms in your home.


  Get your whole family to pitch in. You shouldn’t be the only one getting your hands

dirty while cleaning the house. Kids can tidy up their rooms, and your spouse can do the

garage, kitchen, or other room. Getting everyone involved could have the spring cleaning done

in a single weekend. Just be sure each person has their own list – so you aren’t going back to

do extra work that they left behind later!



  Clean one room at a time. It can seem easier to sweep every room, or dust every

fan, at once. However, this can actually lead to you getting sidetracked, forgetting what you

were doing, or causing you to jump around in your spring cleaning. It’s much more time effective

to finish a room completely before moving on to the next.


   Don’t rush it. Most people will not be able to get all of their cleaning done in a single day.

In fact, many spend one day on each room in their home. This ensures that each room is

thoroughly cleaned, so you aren’t going back later to redo what’s already been done. Cleaning

as fast as possible may seem like a time-saver, but not when you aren’t getting things as clean

as you want them the first time around.


  Put all cleaning supplies in something portable. You can your cleaning

tools to be accessible at all times, and lugging them all in your arms just isn’t the best way to

transfer them. Get a basket or something similar that can house all of your cleaning supplies,

dusters, rags, and anything else you need while you clean. Once you finish a room, be sure to

grab the container so you have it as you begin the next space.


Clean from top to bottom…literally. This may seem like common sense, but if you are

in the cleaning groove and aren’t paying attention, you can create more work for yourself. Be

sure you start each room by cleaning the ceiling, fans, and walls. This way, all the dust, and

grime are on the floor when you are ready to sweep or vacuum.
