How To Prepare For The Big Spring Cleaning

The weather is getting warmer, the sun is shining and you’re feeling refreshed. You know that Spring is just around the corner. Some people love this season, while others aren’t as eagerly anticipating it for one reason: spring cleaning.

However, if you prepare the right way spring cleaning does not have to be something to fear. Of course, it will go much easier if you put some effort into keeping your home clean every day throughout the year. But if not, don’t fear because we’ve talked to the experts at That’s Clean Maids to give you some useful advice on how to prepare for the spring cleaning.

Don’t Panic!

The reason why many homeowners feel anxious about spring cleaning is that they don’t do much cleaning at all. This means that by the time spring comes, your home is a mess of clutter, dirt and grime. Therefore, the first tip to start this year’s spring cleaning right is simply “don’t panic”. With a good plan and a few helping hands, you’ll get it done in no time.

Create a Plan

Take as much time as you need to create a cleaning plan. The easiest way to do this is to create a to-do list and detail everything that needs to be done around the home. From kitchen and bathroom cleaning to garage decluttering and gardening, take everything into account and create a plan. This will give you a better insight into how much time you need to dedicate to clean your home. Plan your activities day by day, and you’ll find cleaning is easier than ever.

Assign Tasks

Spring cleaning is a family effort, and everyone needs to contribute if you want the spring cleaning to be as quick and painless as possible. Make sure everyone has an assignment, your kids included! The least they could do is help clean and declutter their own rooms.

Schedule Appointments

If you plan on hiring a house cleaning service this spring or a carpet cleaning company make sure you call ahead and see if there are any available terms. Spring is a busy time for these companies and if you wait for the last minute, you likely won’t find an available slot or have to pay a lot for it.

Get The Supplies

When it comes to spring cleaning, you’re only as effective as your cleaning products. That’s why you need to create a shopping list and figure out which cleaning products you have from last year and which ones you have to get. These include both cleaning chemicals and powerful household items like baking soda and vinegar.

Start Decluttering

Arguably, the most difficult part of the spring cleaning routine is decluttering. If you’re like most people you’ve likely hoarded a lot of unnecessary items you rarely or never use. These are probably gathering dust in your garage and attic. And that’s ok as long as there’s enough room to fit them. But what happens when you run out of room. It’s time to declutter.

Get everything out and separate them in categories. Some items you’ll want to keep, others you can donate, sell or throw away. If you have enough things to sell, you can throw a garage sale and have your kids sell everything. You can reward them by letting them keep the earnings as allowance money.
