Spring cleaning is the one time of the year where you clean your home far deeper and more thoroughly than your usual cleaning throughout the year. The result of a good spring cleaning can be incredibly astounding, making your home much brighter, healthier, and look far bigger than it was before spring cleaning. However, to make the most of your spring cleaning you need to look bigger and deeper than the surface, instead focusing on areas that you often ignore or overlook during your regular cleaning as well as the areas or things that can make a huge impact on the level of cleanliness you want to achieve, such as your floor or windows. To make your spring cleaning matter and successful, here are a few tips you can make use of:
- One of the most important thing you should do during your spring cleaning is to swap out your used air filters with the new ones. Not only will this make the air circulation in your house so much better, clean air filters also help prevent air-borne and common diseases, as well as dust and pollen allergies. To ensure that your trip to the hardware store is effective, make sure that you take a note of the dimension of your home’s air filters or snap a picture or two so you can ask the hardware store employees for the right air filters replacement.
- If you have wooden flooring or wooden furniture, you’d want to make them look brand new and gleaming after the spring cleaning is over. To do so, you can use wood polish in order to buff your flooring as well as to recondition your furniture, and to ensure that the gleam stays throughout the year you can also do this regularly once a month.
- Clean and wash all your linens, from your pillow covers to your curtains and carpets. If you want to, you can also get your carpets professionally cleaned to get rid of all its dust and stains, making it look as pristine as it was when you first bought it. If you do not want to take your carpet or rugs to professional cleaners, you can also steam clean them on your own for that extra cleanliness.
- Cleaning out your drawers might seem like a usual thing to do during your annual spring cleaning, but cleaning out your drawers should mean more than you throwing out your junk and old items haphazardly or putting them all in a box in the attic. Instead, take your time to remove all your items from your drawers and take your time to clean them, as well as the drawer itself, before reorganizing them. Instead of throwing all your old items out, you can also go the extra mile and separate your junk into three piles–one you can reuse or repurpose, one for the junk you need to recycle, and the last one for the junk you need to throw away.
