Our Top Tips For Spring Cleaning Your Home

< Blog list

In regard to cleaning, it can feel a little overwhelming when spring comes in after a long winter. Do we all get that little burst of excitement and motivation for longer days, warmer weather and sunshine? It can be difficult to know where to start though, so we have compiled some top tips to get you started:

Make a List
Having a solid plan works with almost everything in life and it’s no different when it comes to spring cleaning. To avoid overwhelm and start off on the right foot, a list is vital. Walk around the inside and outside of your house and make a list of everything that needs to be done; If a task will take less than 5 minutes, do it now. For everything else, work out how much time it will take, when you have that amount of time in your schedule and tick off tasks one by one.

De-clutter First
It’s impossible to start cleaning on top of mess and clutter. Create a blank canvas! Before you begin your spring clean, try de-cluttering and removing the items you no longer need or want. This could also include washing and safely storing winter items like coats and heavy blankets away until next year.

Gather Your Essentials Before You Start
Stopping and starting is one of the biggest motivation killers when it comes to cleaning so make sure you have everything you need before you begin so you can get the job done in one session. You might be missing cleaning items such as window cleaner if you haven’t cleaned your windows for a while so check what you have now and buy or make up your own organic cleaning solutions ahead of time.

Start from the Top
It makes sense to always start at the top when you begin cleaning and work your way down, you can do this from room to room, within each room and even outside the house. Start upstairs or at the top of the house if working outside and ensure all the grime heads down so you don’t find yourself going over old ground.

Protect Yourself
This sounds self-explanatory but you would be amazed at how many people fail to protect themselves in the most basic of ways. If you are climbing ladders, always make sure you have someone else present with you, if you are sensitive to dust or have allergies, wear a mask, if you are using chemicals, use gloves, masks, protect your furniture and remove pets.

We wish you the very best of luck with your spring clean!
