Spring brings about many bountiful treasures. Sunny weather, green grass, blooming flowers, and fresh air. In this season of rejuvenation and everything starting anew, your home will want to reflect that. When you live in a messy space during this time of year, it can feel uninspiring and often exhausting. Spring cleaning may feel like a difficult endeavour, but with tips from our experienced team at Dust Busters, you can be sure to execute a successful house cleaning job.
Get The Whole Family Involved
When you assign tasks to other people in the home, this not only ensures a more effective cleaning job, but also cuts down the total amount of time it will take to do everything. Children are great helpers, so long as you assign them with age appropriate chores. These duties can include sweeping the floor and wiping the counters. Throwing on some music, as well as promising your children with rewards after cleaning is a great way to increase motivation and energy.
Organize, Organize, Organize!
Many people assume that cleaning involves little organization and that things can be done in an “all over the place manner”, as long as it’s clean. If you organize your belongings into different sections (such as “things to give away”, “garbage”,”keep”, etc), this will help you clean more more effectively, and get rid of the possibility of accidentally throwing away things of value.
Approach Cleaning With The “Room by Room” Method
When cleaning, it is very common to get sidetracked and rush around the home doing little things for each space. We recommend that you ensure one room is fully complete before moving on to the next one. This ensures you stay on task and do the best cleaning job for each area. In order to better stay on track, you can also put together a checklist for each room, giving you a more organized approach.
Minimize Your Use Of Cleaning Products
When you are looking to use new products for spring cleaning duties, be sure to keep them to a minimum. We recommend this because too many cleaning products can end up creating more clutter and mess. All purpose cleaners do a great job at getting a number of different chores done, and cloths are 100% reusable and washable. Speciality cleaners may need to be bought, but only purchase when needed.
Look Out For Seasonal Duties
There are certain cleaning jobs that can only be done during the warmer months of the year. Things such as cleaning off the patio, wiping down the grill and clearing out the garage are all great things to get done during the spring/summer. Be sure to organize your clothing by season, so that you can put back the winter clothes and bring in the spring/summer gear when the weather starts to get warm.
Try Out Different Cleaning Habits
Wanting to get the entire house clean in one or two days is understandable. You want to get it done as quickly as possible so you can continue on with less boring and exhausting tasks. When people try to rush cleaning, however, it can sometimes go haywire. Chances are if you overdo it, you will end up not completing what you want and getting sick of having to do it altogether. A more reasonable approach is starting out small and working your way up over a span of a couple weeks. Try starting at 15 minutes of cleaning per day, then slowly working your way up into an hour-two hours of cleaning a day. This keeps you much more motivated than the former, and encourages you to want to do better every day.
