Planning Your Spring Cleaning

Written by 

Is it too early to start spring cleaning? Even if you aren't ready to start cleaning in the still-chilly weather, planning what you're going to do for your spring cleaning is not a bad idea. Planning for cleaning might seem silly, but planning is what makes maid services so effective.

The idea behind spring cleaning is to clean things that don't normally get cleaned during your everyday chores. When you think in those terms, which things are most important to you when you start your cleaning? Prioritizing ahead of time will make you feel victorious as you achieve each of your goals!

Ideas to Get You Started

If you aren't sure where to start with your list of priorities (like this one from Clean Mama), walk through your house, and try to see it with an extremely critical eye. Look at the areas you normally avoid. This will help give you an idea of where to start that's really going to matter to you.

Here are a few places to look as you inspect your house:

  • Dust on light fixtures, ceiling fans, the tops of bookshelves, the TV, or cabinets.
  • The carpet or condition of hard floors.
  • HVAC vents.
  • Doors and windows.
  • Baseboards & molding.
  • Sinks.
  • Light switches and outlets.

Quick Guide to Cleaning

If you just want to jump in and get started, that's great! In 5 minutes, you could be cleaning if you know which tools and techniques will serve you best. 

A bottle of vinegar, a box of baking soda, and a microfiber cloth are going to be the best things for handling almost any mess. Dirty hard floors? Vinegar and water make a great floor wash that both breaks up dirt and disinfects. 

A microfiber cloth with a bit of vinegar and water will take care of baseboards, molding, doors, and windows. Baking soda sprinkled down the drain becomes a cleaner and deodorizer when you pour vinegar over it. 

Grab a vacuum for the carpet and furniture, and you're already halfway there—even if the temperatures don't yet feel spring-like, your house will!
