Handy Tips To Make Spring Cleaning A Breeze

The brighter days and warm sunshine during Spring can actually help provide us with the motivation to finally get rid of all the clutter that has accumulated over the colder seasons. It’s a great opportunity to get organised and give your home the make-over it deserves. However, getting some spring cleaning done can become quite overwhelming when faced with messy piles and long to-do lists. We have provided some tips to help ease the burden and get the process started.

Have A Game Plan
By breaking it all down, you are able to have a clear vision on what to accomplish and make the most of the time you have set aside. As with any project, planning is an essential step. It can serve as a checklist or guide for all your spring cleaning tasks that need to get done. By gathering all the necessary cleaning supplies at the start, you won’t have to worry about searching for the right products later on. You can collect all the cleaning materials together or separate them according to what’s needed in each room. It would be best to begin from the top to the bottom of the house for an easier flow. Declutter as you move from one step to another!

What Should You Prioritise?
Once you have everything laid out, it’s time to sort out how to tackle each job. You need to figure out what is achievable and consider how long each task will take. Through being realistic and dividing up your checklist according to its priority level, you are able to increase productivity by focusing on one room at a time as you clean. It is tempting to get distracted and jump ahead to another job before finalising the initial task at hand. Although you might intend on coming back to it later, it can become even more challenging to start from scratch.

Smart And Savvy
There are a number of ways that can assist in enhancing the whole spring-cleaning process and lightening your workload. For instance, you can utilise carpet cleaners to take care of grout and remove difficult stains on appliances with baking soda and vinegar. It is also advisable to leave floors for last in order to avoid backtracking where you have already cleaned up. After completing the general cleaning, allow the dirt and dust to settle before you sweep or vacuum the entire house.

Keep It Clean
When moving things around, you will come across items and furniture that are either damaged or no longer being used. It may be time to toss it out of the house rather than moving it into a storage area never to be seen again. Spring cleaning is the space to get rid of unwanted items. You can free up some room by simply donating them to a charity or hosting a garage sale. Before sending it off to a second home, double-check what you’ll be getting rid of and be sure about your decision. It is important to maintain a tidy living area. Establish rules on what is needed and also set up a schedule for general upkeep.
