Spring has once again sprung and amongst the new growth and bursts of sunshine you might be starting to think about taking on the traditional spring clean and getting your home bright and fresh ready for summer. If you’re new to spring cleans and are looking for some guidance about taking on this mission for the first time then we have done the leg work and gathered some expert advice on undertaking your spring clean to help. Here are some top tips to follow:
Decide on a practical way to tackle the clean
Before you start your clean it is a good idea to plan ahead about how you will take this on so you are working as efficiently as possible. There are two possibilities for this – breaking the work down by room, or alternatively tackling it by task. It is unlikely that you will undertake the whole clean in one go unless you have set aside a lengthy designated block of time so consider which will be the more successful technique over a period of time. If you are cleaning by room then it will be useful to write a breakdown of every job per room. For example, if you are starting with the kitchen you will have each of your appliances to work through as well as any general tasks for the room. The Spruce and Molly Maid have some fantastic tips on spring cleaning that are worth a look straight from the experts.
Enlist some help
The spring clean is quite a task and undertaking this alone can be a mission. If you are lucky enough to have someone who can give a hand then be sure to utilise their help for your clean. This will help reduce the time spent and also make it more enjoyable to have some company whilst you work. Having someone to help can assist with your motivation, give comradery for the task and will be some extra muscle for heavier items. On completion there will also be a shared gratification and pride for the task which may even result in a lengthier period before the work starts to become undone.
