Spring is almost here and that means a lot of cleaning and preparing at home. With the perfect temperature, it’s finally the time to do some deep cleaning and organization. But if you don’t want to spend lots of money as well as your free time on this, there are really easy ways to get your home ready for spring using simple materials that you probably have at home.
Declutter your house
The first step in spring cleaning is to declutter your home. Start by cleaning out your closets, drawers and cabinets so that you can organize them better. If you have kids at home, this is also a great way to help them learn about responsibility and organization. When they’re done with their toys and clothes, they’ll feel proud knowing that everything has its place and there’s no clutter around anymore!
Clean your windows and screens
The first thing you need to do is remove all the furniture and other items from the room. Then, wipe down the window frames with a damp cloth. Next, use paper towels or newspaper to clean off any remaining dirt or dust from the outside of the windows. You can also use a squeegee or microfiber cloth to buff off streaks from inside your windows. Once you’re done cleaning, make sure that you dry off all excess water from inside and out before replacing any furniture in the room in order to avoid mold growth on your wood flooring.
You should also clean your screens as well as your glass! It’s important because when there are cracks in your screen or holes, bugs can find their way into your home through those gaps during springtime. To clean them, wipe down both sides of each screen with a damp rag and then dry them off with another clean rag after cleaning each side of each screen panel until they are completely dry before replacing them back into place again once
Fix your broken appliances
Spring cleaning should always include checking all of your appliances for any potential issues. Make sure that all of your electronics are up to date and working properly. If you have older appliances, now is a great time to replace them with newer models that use less energy and save money on your energy bills.
Consider contacting an appliance repair service if the appliance is only slightly damaged.
Clean your rugs
Spring is a great time to clean your carpets. Since you spend more time in the living room during spring, it’s important that it looks good and feels clean. A quick vacuum will help remove dust and dirt that has accumulated over winter. You can also schedule professional carpet cleaning to keep your carpets looking their best all year long.
Vacuum under furniture
Even though you might not be using this space during winter, it’s still important to keep it clean and free of dust and dirt. A good vacuum under furniture will clear away dust bunnies and other debris from under sofas, chairs and tables. Vacuuming is also an easy way to freshen up the air around these items without having to open windows or doors for fresh air.
There are a lot of things you can do to spruce up your home, and while the weather is transitioning from cold winter to warm spring, there are some things you should be doing right away. These tips will help you get your house ready for spring in no time!
