When the birds start singing their spring songs, and the flowers begin to grow and bloom, it’s time to spring clean your home. The tradition of freshening up your home can often be an overwhelming thought, especially when it includes window cleaning, but it doesn’t have to be difficult.
Following these five spring cleaning tips for your home this season will get you off to a great start.
Make a Checklist for Each Room
Begin your spring cleaning task by going from room to room. Begin with a checklist for each room to ensure you perform a deep clean and help you stay organized and aware of areas needing extra attention. If you have been cleaning certain areas all year, these can be ignored for the time being. Window cleaning can be saved for the last task and you should consider a professional to complete this as most windows require a ladder to be completely washed.
Clear Out Clutter
Spring cleaning involves getting rid of clutter. These 4 steps will help you declutter almost any room:
- Identify the problem areas
- Analyze the reason for the clutter
- Determine solutions
- Implement remedies
One of the remedies will involve sorting your clutter into categories:
- Give away or donate
- Store (if the items may have a future purpose, but not an immediate one)
- Put away (if items are used regularly but have not been put in their spot)
Don’t hold on to the items you’ve put into the trash or give away piles. Remove them as soon as you can so they don’t wind up back in a cluttered mess.
Incorporate Seasonal Chores
Some chores have to be completed in a home on a seasonal basis. If you are getting ready for warmer weather, your window cleaning would be one of those tasks. You may even have stored screens that will need to come out of storage and be washed off. If they remained on your windows, you should remove and wash off debris that collected during the winter.
Window cleaning, however, should be completed by professionals, such as Gwyndow’s Window Cleaning Service. Professional window cleaning is not only safer, but it is also much more effective. These professionals have the right tools for window cleaning and the experience needed to safely get those hard-to-reach areas.
Don’t Forget About Heating and Cooling System
Replace your HVAC and furnace filters. This aspect is forgotten in many spring cleaning projects. Changing these filters will improve the air quality that you breathe and help you stay healthier as you enter the new season. Your air conditioner ducts will have built-up dust throughout the winter, so by upgrading your filter, they can catch all unwanted particles that would otherwise end up in your living space.
Work From the Top to the Bottom
When you spring clean your house, you should start at the ceiling and work your way down to the floors. This process will force debris downward and you won’t have to re-clean or re-dust any areas. You may want to add your extension hose to your vacuum and remove all spider webs or cobwebs that have collected in corners or on ceiling fans.
