How can you Get Started with Spring Cleaning This Year?
Starting your spring cleaning is a very important thing. It's a sign of warmer weather arriving and it usually means it's time to purge some of the garbage you don't need anymore. Here are a few tips to get you started with this year's round of spring cleaning.
Start with Smaller Projects
Since the weather isn't exactly warm yet, you can start inside the house with smaller projects. Tackle the closets and other storage areas first. This will allow you to go through some of the items you may not need anymore and get something done before the weather turns warm enough to handle other tasks.
Don't Forget the Ceilings
Often, we forget to clean the ceilings because they are above us and out of our way. However, they attract plenty of dust and dirt. It's actually a good idea to start high and work to the lower parts of your home. This ensures you get all the dust and dirt possible as it falls from higher areas to the floor.
Mattresses need Flipped or Replaced
Your bed is an important part of your house. You spend at least one-third of your life in it, so it needs refreshed. If your mattress is over 8 years old, you should consider replacing it. However, if it's not that old, it probably needs to be flipped and maybe cleaned.
Window Cleaning in Warm Weather
Windows get cold during lower temperatures and can be hard to clean during colder days. Once the weather is warmer, you should clean not only the glass, but also the frame. This is a very popular spot for dust, spider webs and all types of other dirty things.
Move Furniture and Create Space
When it comes time to tackle specific rooms, it's a good idea to remove or at least move the furniture before cleaning. This keeps dust from getting caught on it and allows you the necessary space to do a full cleaning.
Use these tips and get your spring cleaning started early. This will help you get the most out of cleaning and allow you to refresh your Calgary home.Posted by Justin Havre on
