Spring is upon us which means it's time to start thinking about spring cleaning. Now more than ever, it is important that you keep your home clean, and what better way to ensure that your home is thoroughly clean than with a deep spring clean.
Spring cleaning can feel like a daunting task, so we have put together some tips and tricks to help get you started. Follow our spring cleaning tips and tricks below for a healthy and clean home for you and your family.
Make A Schedule
Before getting started, you should scope out your home and prioritise which room needs to be done first and create a schedule. Planning out what you are going to do before you do it and following it can help keep you focused on the task at hand and make sure you do not miss anywhere.
Did you know that having a disorganised or untidy home can add to your stress levels? Before cleaning, make sure you tidy up and move any obstructions out of the way to make sure you can clean thoroughly and efficiently.
Clean Room by Room
Working your way around the house cleaning room by room is the most effective way of ensuring that you give it a deep clean. Focusing on one room at a time will allow you to see the results and give you the encouragement to carry on to the next one.
Share the Load
Get other people in your household involved to help get the cleaning done quicker. Even young children can lend a helping hand and you could offer an incentive to get chores done.
Listen to Music
Listening to music, or a podcast or audiobook, while getting the cleaning done can make it seem a little less dull and it will feel like it goes a lot quicker.
Minimise Cleaning Products
Try to use cleaning products that you already have, which may help clear up space in your cupboards, rather than adding to the clutter by buying more.
If you do need to buy new cleaning products, only buy what you need. We recommend opting for a good all-purpose cleaner and some microfibre cloths as these can be used for a variety of surfaces in your home.
After you have finished your spring cleaning, it is important to then keep it up. Once you have done all the hard work, it should be easy to stay on top of it. Little and often cleaning, even just 10 to 15 minutes per day of tidying and cleaning, will help to keep your home clean.
Hire A Cleaner
