Top 10 Spring Cleaning Tips

It’s almost time to prepare your home for the Spring with a deep cleaning. With a clean house, the quality of the air will improve, and you’ll be ready to host visitors. The following are the top 10 Spring cleaning tips.

Organize Your Junk Drawer

Many people keep a bin of their odds and ends that eventually becomes a cluttered mess, and it can be difficult to find specific items. Organizing your junk drawer into neat sections will make it much easier for you to find various items such as pens, paperclips, scissors and glue.

Clean Ceiling Fans

Ceiling fans are often forgotten about during a cleaning session, and they’re important to keep clean. A collection of dust on the blades will spread throughout the room and irritate your allergies.

Set a Schedule

It can seem overwhelming to clean your entire house before Springtime arrives, but setting a schedule for yourself can make it less stressful. Don’t overload yourself with chores, and work on cleaning each part of your house in separate chunks.

Upgrade Your Vacuum

Slow vacuums can add more time to your Spring cleaning, so it may be time to repair or upgrade your vacuum cleaner. A deep clean of the inside of your vacuum is helpful when it gets clogged and the suction is lower in intensity.

Get Help From Family

Ask your family members to pitch in and help with some of the chores. This can significantly cut down on the time it will take, and it’s a great bonding opportunity.

Sanitize Toys

Your children’s toys could potentially have a stockpile of germs and bacteria build up on them. Sanitizing their toys is an excellent way to prevent them from spreading germs and getting sick.

Clean Under Your Bed

Underneath the bed is also commonly forgotten about when cleaning a room. Excess clutter can easily build up such as socks, empty water bottles, and other various items.

Donate Extra Clothing

If your closet is full of outfits that you rarely wear anymore, donating them is a great way to declutter your closet. Not only are you clearing up space for new Spring outfits, you’re performing a good deed.


Performing multiple chores at once can help you be as efficient as possible. Sweeping while calling in a doctor’s appointment, and vacuuming a room while dinner is cooking are great examples of easy ways to multitask.

Transfer from Garage to Shed

If you have a large collection of tools or sports equipment that is taking up valuable space in your garage, consider moving these items to a shed. This will make it easier to park your car and store items that you use the most.
