Chirping birds signify that spring has sprung. The smell of freshly mowed grass is wafting in through open windows, and all things in nature are preparing their nests for warm days filled with sunshine.
As you open your windows to let in the fresh scent of spring, does the sun shines through and highlighting every bit of dust and dander in your home?
From dusting to mopping, you need a plan, and keeping the blinds down just isn’t an option.
Roll up your sleeves and get the spring cleaning checklist tips you need from expert cleaners in Greensboro to prepare your nest for the season.
Delete the dust
Dust — it’s the indicator of a dirty home when someone does a “white glove” inspection. The two-finger swipe across the top of a table and repulsed reaction is all too familiar.
Dust every surface in the house — those you can see, and those you have to reach up or down for, such as the blades of your ceiling fans. While you’re dusting is a good time to make a pile of things you don’t need to declutter your home. Go through your items to determine what you want to keep versus donate, recycle, or throw away.
Pull down drapes and run them through a fluff cycle in the dryer to remove dust from them, and while they’re down, take care of the dust on blinds, baseboards, and décor.
Deep clean furniture and floors
Deep clean carpets and furniture to remove stains and odors. Mop wood floors to renew their appearance and enhance your spotless home.
Clean that kitchen
The kitchen is used daily — and it shows. Especially in bright sunlight.
Clean out the fridge by removing items and scrubbing the shelving areas. Scrub all appliances inside and out, scour the sink, faucets, and the hard to reach places with toothbrushes that won’t be so hard to see with the natural light shining through. Give those counters a thorough scrubbing. Burners, appliance knobs, and handles are easily forgotten during kitchen cleaning.
Pick through the pantry
Another great decluttering tactic while cleaning: pick through that pantry. Get rid of expired foods and reorganize your pantry for a clean orderly closet.
Bathe the bathroom
You use it to clean yourself daily, it’s time you pay it back.
Soak shower heads in vinegar while you scrub the tub and toilet. Wipe down walls, baseboards, and mirrors to make them shine. Get behind faucets with that handy toothbrush you used in the kitchen. With a little sweat and determination, you can successfully eradicate mold, mildew, stains, and odors leaving your bathroom sparkling and smelling fresh.
Beautify the bedroom
The bedroom can be the one of the dirtiest places because we spend so much time in it. Giving it attention during spring cleaning will give you a better night’s sleep.
Wash all bedding and vacuum and dust along the baseboards.
Don’t forget the closet. It’s full of winter clothes.
Reorganize your closet by pulling out winter items and replacing them with your warm weather wardrobe.
Store your cold weather clothes in the attic or vacuum sealed bags under the bed. You’ll rest easier at night because a clear space begets a clear mind.
Wash those windows
As sunlight pours through windows, the smudge and stains on glass can be unsightly even if the rest of the home is spotless. Scrub windows inside and out to make sure the sun can actually get through them.
Finish with flair
Houses are filled with nooks, crannies, and features we rarely notice. Finish your spring cleaning checklist in flair by paying attention to the details.
Dust light fixtures, lampshades, wipe down light switch plates, baseboards, walls, trim, mirrors, and vent covers in every room. This finishing touch will bring your freshly cleaned home full circle to “spring ready”.
