Just thinking of spring cleaning can be tiresome. It’s that time of year again where you need to spend an entire day or two to exhaustively clean your home from top to bottom. For most people, it is one of those least desirable chores to look forward to. Fret not, as there are ways you can make your spring cleaning a lot easier and faster, here are some of them.
Before the actual spring cleaning day, prepare your cleaning supplies and see what’s missing. Make sure you have plenty of cleaning rags and paper towels and if your broom and mop are already worn out, buy some new ones, as the old ones may not be as efficient in taking away the dust and dirt. Check if all your cleaning products are sufficient to be used or better yet, you can also buy additional products so you don’t have to run to the store on the day itself.
Get everyone in your family involved by spending some time along with you before the big day, picking up items around the house.
Wake up early and put on your most comfy clothes, ones that you won’t mind getting dirty. If you have long hair, put it up to be more comfortable. Bring the cleaning supplies you have prepared a few days before. Start cleaning from top to bottom in order to avoid getting dust or dirt on what you just cleaned earlier. This is an easier and a more systematic approach to cleaning and it gives you a sense of accomplishment every time you finish cleaning a room.
Use a mop or broom wrapped with a soft cloth to remove spider webs or cobwebs from your ceiling. Wipe off the lighting fixtures. Continue working all the way down to your counters, furniture, windows, and shelves. Finish by cleaning the baseboards and vacuuming your carpet, including under the bed. Do take time to move the furniture when doing the floor to make sure all areas are thoroughly cleaned
Once you get to the toilet and bathroom, begin by squirting some bathroom cleaner on areas like your toilet bowl, wash basin, toilet, sink, bathroom tiles, and shower. Then let it sit for a while. While waiting for the cleaner to soak in, you can start cleaning the bathroom ceiling, counters, and windows. Going back to the first process, scrub the sprayed areas with a clean brush then rinse with water.
Make sure to take a break from your cleaning from time to time. Remember also to drink plenty of water to replenish your energy.
After a thorough clean up, you may have some things that are not needed or are no longer useful. You may want to give or throw them away to free up some space in your home.
After a long day’s work, take a shower and pamper yourself by getting a massage. If you can, give yourself a break the next day by just relaxing and resting. You definitely deserve it.
In the event you cannot accomplish this by yourself, you can ask professional to help by hiring a professional and dependable house cleaning service provider to transform your home into an immaculately clean haven.
