Spring is officially here! That
means it’s time to get all the Spring Cleaning chores done without getting
stressed out and feeling overwhelmed. Take a deep breath,
maintain a sense of calm, and enlist the help of family members and
professionals where needed.
a sample checklist to get you started;
1.Garage:This is the first place you
start. You don’t want to drag more dirt and blowing dust in your
fresh cleaned home. Most people use the garage as an entrance, so
technically it’s the best place to start. Empty everything in driveway, donate
or trash unused items. Organize, sweep and hose floor, and replace your items
more organized than before. If you don’t have the time or energy to
do the work, go to Valpak phone app or coupon mailer for a
cleaning service or professional organizer.
2.Windows and Screens:Get
a pro window squeegee and learn how to use on line. Wipe all screens
and windowsills with all-purpose cleaner in a bucket with a
cloth. Vacuum dead bugs and cobwebs. If you lack window
cleaner skills, call a pro.
3.Ceiling to Floor: Start high since dust and dirt fall. Start cleaning ceiling
fans, lights, then shelving and crown molding, wash walls with a flat
microfiber mop, then clean baseboards with damp cloth with all-purpose cleaner.
4.Clean the Carpets:Time to call
in the Pros! I go to my ValPak app on my phone to find savvy savings
and professional service. To maintain the carpet cleanliness,
purchase carpet protector spray at a home improvement store. Spills
will stay on top of carpet fibers and can be easily cleaned by patting with a
5.Closet Chaos: Organize the
closets. Remove everything. Throw out empty shoeboxes,
mismatched hangers. General rule: If you haven’t worn in 2
years, give away or donate. Wipe shelves and replace much more
organized than you found it!
6.Appliances: Clean interiors, exteriors. Be sure to clean dryer lint filter
in dryer and the liquid powder dispensers in your washing
machine. For HE washers use a special cleaner to remove odors.
