Let’s Spring Into Action: How You Can Get Ahead With The Spring Clean
January is coming to an end, and we are officially heading into the second month of 2017. It seems we are just about getting over the hurdle of winter so there is no surprise that our thoughts may be drawn to Spring. Brighter and warmer days are nearly here, but Spring also presents the perfect time to get our homes in order. The spring clean could have become a bit of a tradition, but let’s be honest it can also feel like a lot of chores to do in such a short space of time. So why not get ahead of yourself this year and start it now. After all, those warmer days are there to be enjoyed, not cooped up in your home with a sponge and mop in your hand.
Declutter your home for good
It is very difficult to give your home that deep clean when you have so many things everywhere. We can all be hoarders in some way and so now we would be the ideal time to start the decluttering process in your home. It may be as simple as spending five minutes each day decluttering a cupboard or a room, or you may want to categorize it like some tutorials online suggest. However you tackle it, you won’t believe the difference it will make, and how easy it will be to do all those other chores.
Get those odd jobs boxed off
Sometimes we have chores on our “to do” list that would be classed as yearly jobs. That may be clearing out the gutters, tidying away leaves in the garden or steam cleaning your driveway or exterior of your home. All of these things can make a big difference to your home, so why not start ticking those big jobs off before Spring? This way your home can start to look amazing, with very little effort.
Dust until you can dust know more
Winter means that our homes can get so dusty. It’s surprising really, but when you have moved boxes from your loft for Christmas decorations, or haven’t wanted to move the furniture to clean underneath, the dust can mount up. Again tackling each room as you go is the best course of action. It will enable you to keep a track of what you have done, and also make sure you dust everywhere, including under furniture and along the skirting.
Give those floors some TLC
The flooring in your home could have taken a bit of a beating during the winter months. Muddy shoes, icy water being brought in, it can certainly create a lot of marks that you may want to focus your attention on. This is why now would be an ideal time to get the carpet cleaner out or your steam cleaner for the wooden or tiled floors. If you haven’t got one already, then it might be worth checking out steam cleaner reviews to obtain some information.
Finally, spring cleaning doesn’t have to necessarily happen in spring. You could always just spring into action yourself and get your home in order. When everything feels tidy, and in its place, you may actually feel better within yourself.
