We’ll walk you through the process of spring cleaning your house and share our top tips for getting organized like a pro!

Declutter

Donating Decluttering And Cleaning Up Wardrobe Clothes

Start your spring cleaning journey by tackling clutter one room at a time. It’s common during the winter months for areas in your home to accumulate clutter. Spaces like the laundry room and home offices become a place of setting things down that never get picked back up. So, begin with those rooms you feel have accumulated the most clutter, from your closets and cabinets to your garage – don’t be afraid to dive in and start sifting through the items that you’ve long forgotten about. Sort through the items methodically, dividing them into categories– keep, donate, recycle, and discard. Be ruthless in your decision-making process and only keep items that you truly need or love or have a place to be stored!

Pro tip: Adopt the “One In, One Out” Rule: Implement the “one in, one out” rule to prevent clutter from accumulating. For every new item you bring into your home, consider donating or discarding a similar item to maintain balance and prevent overcrowding.

Once you’ve decluttered each room, it’s time to roll up your sleeves and give your home a thorough cleaning.

Deep Clean Floors: Vacuum carpets and rugs thoroughly, paying extra attention to corners and edges. For hard floors, sweep or vacuum first to remove loose debris, then mop with a cleaning solution suitable for your flooring type.

Tackle Appliances: Deep clean kitchen appliances like the oven, microwave, and refrigerator, both inside and out. Remove shelves and drawers to clean them separately, and wipe down the exterior surfaces with a suitable cleaner.

Don’t Forget the Extras: Finally, don’t forget to clean and disinfect smaller items such as light fixtures, switch plates, and decorative accents. Launder curtains and wash bedding to ensure a fresh and clean environment throughout your home.

Pro tip: Start from the highest point in each room (such as ceiling fans or light fixtures) and work your way down to the floors. This ensures that any dust or debris dislodged during cleaning will fall onto surfaces that have not yet been cleaned and will make it easier to vacuum.
