Spring is only a week away. The weather may not agree, but before we know it, the temperatures will start rising and flowers will begin to peek from beneath the ground. This is also a great time of year to open up the windows and start letting in the fresh air. And as we do that, it’s also time to do a little deep cleaning and decluttering.
As if you don’t already have a few items on your list, here are some ideas of what to do to start the clean-up. I call them my Super Seven Spring Cleaning Tips.
- Wash the windows inside and out.
- Wipe down walls and baseboards.
- Steam clean the carpet.
- Remove the cobwebs from the corners of your ceiling.
- Power wash the exterior of your home.
- Dust/wipe down the blades on your ceiling fans.
- Clean out the garage.
Taking on a deep cleaning can be a bit of a daunting task, but doing it in small bits will make it more manageable. Also, don’t do it alone. Make each project a family event with a fun reward upon completion. Not only will you have a clean home, but you’ll have spent quality family time together as a result.
So, go ahead, and make it a Super Spring. After the winter we’ve had, you deserve it.
