The Best Way to Spring Clean

8 Tips for a Fresh Start to the Season

It’s spring! Time for a fresh start—or at least a rejuvenated living space. If a deep clean is on your to-do list this season, here are some spring cleaning tips to help tackle this tradition.

Spring Cleaning Tips

While some may look forward to this time of year and save many chores for this specific reason, others may be overwhelmed with the amount of work needing to be done. Don’t fret, help is on the way. Take a deep breath, then take some of these spring cleaning tips into consideration.

  1. Create a Cleaning Schedule. To make the process more manageable, break down tasks by room. Start with the rooms that need the most attention and work your way down the list. Be realistic about what you can accomplish in a day and pace yourself to avoid burnout.
  2. Declutter. Cleaning is easier without all the clutter. Follow your room by room schedule from above. Remove the items you no longer need—trash what’s broken and donate what’s not. Then when the space is clear, give it a deep clean before you bring back what you’re keeping.
  3. Focus on High-Traffic Areas. Pay special attention to the kitchen, bathroom, and living room. This is where the most dirt, grime, and effort are usually required. A deep clean includes getting into the grout and making it shine. Also focus on frequently touched surfaces such as doorknobs, light switches, and countertops.
  4. Deep Clean Carpets and Upholstery. Remove built-up dirt, allergens, and lingering odors that can absorb into textile areas. Regular vacuuming can help keep your carpets looking fresh, but a deep clean will help remove any set-in stains.
  5. Tackle Outdoor Spaces. Now that the weather is getting warming, you’ll be venturing out more often. Spruce up your outdoor space by sweeping away debris from your patio or deck, cleaning outdoor furniture, and pruning overgrown plants.
  6. Focus on the Little Things. Typically, everyday cleaning overlooks areas like light fixtures, ceiling fans, and baseboards. Make sure you hit these spots to help your home feel truly clean and fresh.
  7. Reward Yourself. Remember that schedule you created? Check off each item as it’s completed and pat yourself on the back. You don’t have to get it all done in one day. Technically spring lasts till summer, so pace yourself. Then treat yourself! Take a moment to celebrate your hard work with something you enjoy, whether it’s a relaxing bath, a movie night, or a delicious meal. You deserve it!
  8. Maintain a Clean Environment. Make an effort to maintain a regular cleaning routine throughout the year. This will help prevent dirt and clutter from building up and make future spring cleaning tasks easier to manage.
