The winter months can feel stale, with so much time being spent indoors and out of the weather. It’s no surprise that our homes can start to feel like they're in a state of disarray. Clutter tends to accumulate around the house, and dirt and debris left over from autumn, then covered by snow becomes more obvious as the snow melts away. One of the best ways to shake off the dust is to do some spring cleaning.
Five Tips to Clean Up for Spring
1) Move and Organize.
The first thing you should do is any organizing or moving of furniture that you might want to do. Since organizing things can kick up dust, it’s best to start out with this. Vacuum or dust items before putting them away to prevent build up over time. Try rearranging the furniture to change up the feng shui and to give it a fresh look, or replace some of the old furniture and accessories to brighten up the room.
2) Grab a Duster
Next, try focusing on dusting off your furniture, TVs, and bookshelves. Don’t forget those hard-to-reach places that tend to accumulate dust bunnies. Dusting sends particles into the air that settle onto the floor, so we recommend dusting before vacuuming.
A good detailed vacuuming can make a huge difference. Vacuum your carpets and floors, and use the extension to get corners of rooms, baseboards, and underneath couches and tables. Also remember to hit the tops of things like microwaves and refrigerators.
4) Clean out the closets
Spring is also a great time to clean out your closets, especially ones that may have been neglected over the fall and winter such as outdoor storage or sheds. Organize your garden tools and get ready for planting your spring flowers!
5) Clean up the exterior
While you’re cleaning and organizing the rest of your home, it’s a great opportunity to clean up the exterior as well. Concrete cleaning and power washing, window cleaning, and gutter cleaning are popular cleaning services we offer at Agent Clean. You can also opt to have your siding and roof cleaned if you have mildew and mold growing on your house.
