Get Your Home Clean This Spring

As spring rolls in, take some time to clean your home after a long winter. Use these tips to get started on your spring cleaning.

General Spring Cleaning Tips

Before getting started on your cleaning tasks, get to know some basic cleaning tips that will make the job much easier.
  1. Be prepared for clutter. All homes house at least a small amount of clutter made up of items the household no longer needs, no longer uses, or that simply don't work anymore. As you make your way through your spring cleaning checklist, be sure to always have a couple of boxes or bags at your side for items you wish to sell, donate, or toss. This will make it much easier for you to get rid of the items that no longer need to be in your home.
  2. Take one room at a time. To simplify your cleaning, take it one room at a time. Focus your full attention on getting one room clean before moving on to the next. This will make it easier to note your progress and break up cleaning over a few days.
  3. Make dusting one of your first tasks. One of the first things you should do as you start on a room is dust. Because dust tends to float around and end up on the ground, it's best to remove it before getting any other cleaning done. Take your carpet as an example. If you start by cleaning your carpet and then dust, the dust may end up seeping into the carpet you just cleaned. Don't forget that the best way to maintain your carpet at its best is by getting it professionally cleaned at least a couple of times a year.

  4. Always work from top to bottom. For the same reason that dusting should be taken care of first, it's also wise to clean any space from top to bottom. You want to avoid cleaning lower surfaces first only to have them get dirty again after cleaning a higher surface. For example, while cleaning your living room, start by cleaning things near the ceiling, like a ceiling fan. Then move on to objects like light fixtures or the mantle before cleaning your couches and finally the flooring.

Have Your Carpets Professionally Cleaned

Cleaning your carpet should be one of the last steps in your spring cleaning schedule. To get the best deep cleaning, be sure to get your carpet professionally cleaned. Spring is the best time to get your carpet taken care of by a professional because the winter storms are now long gone, but the stains left behind by rough winter weather are likely still around. Trust a professional carpet cleaning service to get rid of the stains and have your carpet looking and smelling like new. Getting your carpet professionally cleaned at least twice a year can help keep it in better condition for longer. As you start on your spring cleaning, be sure to schedule your first carpet cleaning service of the year.

Take Care of Drapes and Upholstery

Whether you hosted some fun holiday parties that left punch stains in your upholstery or the winter weather left its mark on your drapes, get rid of these unsightly marks this spring. You can use vacuum attachments to remove dust and other particles left on your furniture or drapes. If your furniture has a removable cover, throw it in the wash to remove stains. Drapes don't need to be often washed, so if it's not quite time to wash yours, simply stick them in the dryer on a low setting to remove dust. If you need professional help getting your upholstery back to its best, be sure to check out Cleanpro's upholstery care services. Their pros can get not only your carpet looking great but also your upholstery.

Do a Safety Check

While taking care of your spring cleaning, it's a good idea to take the time to ensure the safety equipment in your home works. While you're working up high, test your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors to ensure they're in good working order. If necessary, replace old batteries and install detectors in rooms lacking them. Finally, check on your fire extinguishers. It's best to ensure they are still usable and not expired.

Hard to Reach Spaces

Once you feel like you're done with your spring cleaning checklist, take one last moment to ensure you reached every space in your home. Did you clean under items like the refrigerator or beds? Did you move furniture around in order to be able to inspect areas that are usually hidden? Did you clean items that are typically ignored, like baseboards and door frames? If you did all of this, chances are you're finally done and ready to enjoy this warmer season! For a more thorough spring cleaning checklist, check out this post from Good Housekeeping!
