With this in mind you should be excited about your spring cleaning adventure in 2018. Let’s celebrate the fact that we survived winter and therefore now have the chance to thoroughly spring clean our homes.
The origin of the spring cleaning is not entirely certain but the practices have been adopted by many countries and cultures alike. It seems that many cultures like our own enjoy the idea of a thoroughly cleaned home after a long winter.
Tip Number 1:
We suggest you compile a spring cleaning checklist for yourself. This will help you stay organized while monitoring your progress. The areas that need spring cleaning will be the same areas that are on your weekly cleaning roster which should include bathrooms, bedrooms, living rooms, kitchen, dining room, study and the laundry rooms. Other areas which are also important but not regularly cleaned include outdoor patio, lapa, garage, storage rooms etc.
Tip Number 2:
Spring cleaning is all about cleaning spaces you don’t clean on a week to week basis, therefore, the cleaning process will exist of different types of cleaning for example: wiping walls and ceilings, washing windows, cleaning mirrors, dusting all possible surfaces, washing carpets and rugs, defrosting the freezer, cleaning the refrigerator, cleaning cooking appliances, wiping cabinets, dusting ceiling fans and light fixtures, wash the curtains etc.
Tip Number 3:
Rome wasn’t built in a day, therefore, there is no need for you to spring clean your house in a day. Take your time and make sure you do a thorough job. Work with a plan in mind. Use your spring cleaning check list to establish a schedule on your choice of timetable. You decide if you want to finish the spring cleaning over a period of 7, 14, 30 or whichever amount of days.
Tip Number 4:
