Today is the first day of spring - traditionally a time when people make numerous positive changes to their lives. By spring cleaning your home, you can improve your frame of mind and make it a better place to live. Read on for key spring cleaning tips to help you enhance your mood and make your home seem more welcoming.
Divide your workload into chunks
It’s wise to take things one room at a time so each area gets the attention that it needs. You may wish to create checklists to ensure important locations are not forgotten. The longer you have neglected a part of your home, the bigger a priority it should be. Spring is also a great time to declutter. If you do have many items that you no longer need, now’s the time to dispose of them. You don’t have to throw everything away – there may be some items that you can give away or even sell.
Do you need extra help?
If the task in hand seems too big for you, consider asking for help. This assistance could come from your family or a professional cleaning company. Professional cleaners have a knack for spotting dirt that many other people cannot and really make a difference to your cleanliness levels. Once you have carried out your spring clean, it’s wise to keep on top of things so things don’t become overly daunting in the future. You can start by drawing up a cleaning rota and deciding which chores need to be carried out daily, weekly, monthly and annually.
