With spring cleaning, you’re able to start fresh and get rid of any clutter that may be holding you back.

For many though, it can seem like a daunting task. However, there are a few tips and tricks that can help streamline the process. You may even find it fun!

Consider the following spring cleaning dos and don’ts to make this year’s spring cleaning a breeze!

Dust all furniture and surfaces

Dusting is important to keep your environment clean and free from allergens. Start by dusting high areas and work your way down. This will prevent you from having to dust the same areas twice. Use a feather duster or a microfiber cloth to avoid spreading the dust around. If there are any areas that are difficult to reach, use a vacuum cleaner with the correct attachment.

Clean out your closets

One of the best ways to eliminate clutter is to go through your closets and get rid of everything you don’t wear. Be honest in your decision-making process and if you haven’t worn something in the last year, then chances are that you never will. Donate those clothes to charity or sell them at a garage sale. You can even rent an affordable storage unit to keep seasonal items that would otherwise take up a lot of space!

Wipe windows and mirrors

An effective way to clean your windows and mirrors during spring cleaning is to use a glass cleaner and a paper towel or newspaper. Spray the glass cleaner on the surface and then wipe it off with a paper towel or newspaper.

Don’t wait until the last minute

Starting your spring cleaning early allows you to take your time and do a thorough job. Spending a little extra time on each task will ensure that your home is clean and organised by the time spring is in full swing. 

Don’t skip any areas

It’s important to clean every nook and cranny so that your home is as clean as possible. If you skip areas, it will be more difficult to clean them later on, and you may end up procrastinating on the task. By taking the time to clean every area of your home, you’ll ensure your entire home is spick and span. 

Don’t tackle the job alone 

Spring cleaning is a great opportunity to get the whole family involved.

Are you looking for places to store sentimental or seasonal items? Spring cleaning the home doesn’t mean that you have to be impulsive and get rid of valuable belongings. Instead, self storage can serve as an extension of your home by providing a safe and secure space to keep your household belongings for as long as you need.
