The Do’s and Don’ts of Spring Cleaning

A smiling mother and young daughter use an orange rag to clean the top of a couch cushion. You can see the blue spray bottle on top of the cushion and the yellow gloves worn by the mother as well.

Now that we’ve left the coldness of the winter months behind us, there are a few things that you should be doing during the resulting spring! There’s a reason why the term “spring cleaning” is so widespread: it’s a common practice in many households! If you’re looking to tidy up the messes in your home this spring, you should be aware of the right ways to go about things. To ensure that your home is in tip-top shape for the rest of the year, we give you some do’s and don’ts to improve your spring cleaning!

Don’t: Brush Off The Little Things

If you ever played a sport when you were younger, you’re likely familiar with the phrase “focus on the details”. If you leave all the little details out of your plan, they can add up and cause a huge disaster in the end! The same can be said for the little items when you’re spring cleaning. The more you leave little items around your room, the more likely it is that they’ll pile up into a ton of clutter later on! When you’re going from room to room, make sure you know where the little things go.

Do: Take It One Day At A Time

If you go into your spring cleaning expecting everything to get done in one weekend, you’ve already lost! You’ll likely feel overwhelmed and ignore big details to reach the end goal. In order to ensure that you do the most thorough cleaning job, make a plan of action before you start. Start with the rooms and items that bother you the most and move down the list from highest to lowest priority. Cleaning the big ticket rooms first will give you satisfaction knowing that the rest will be easier!

Don’t: Be Afraid To Ask For Help

Regardless of whether you live in an apartment, home or other living area, the space you have to clean is massive. It can often get overwhelming and stressful at times! One person isn’t enough to do the whole job. You should consider bringing in outside help, such as your friends, family, or a professional company.
