There’s something about spring—the warm air, the blooming flowers, the longer days—that awakens people from their wintertime slumber. There’s something about the change in seasons that makes you want to grab a broom and dustpan and tackle the dustiest and dirtiest parts of your home–or maybe not. While some people might enjoy the ritual of spring cleaning, others would rather shed their heavy coats and embrace the season in other ways. So for those who see themselves basking in the warmth of the spring sun rather than scrubbing the kitchen floors, here are some easy cleaning tips that will have you enjoying the warm weather in no time.

  1. Tackle one at a timeTackle one room at a time. Start by creating a list of the different rooms/areas in your home. Next, walk through your house and make a list of the different things that you need to dust, wash, scrub, and organize.

  2. Focus on cleaning the neglected parts of your home. This is the perfect time to deep clean your home and tackle those areas that aren’t touched during your normal cleaning routine. By honing in on only those areas, you can cut your cleaning time in half.

  3. Outsource work
  4. Outsource some of your work. In order to relieve some of the stress of spring cleaning your home, consider hiring professionals to help you with the process. You can hire a junk removal company to get rid of old and unwanted items, and they will donate or recycle what items they can, so you can skip a trip to the thrift store. Likewise, consider hiring a carpet cleaning company to thoroughly clean your carpet and upholstery, which should be done at least once a year. These are only two types of home services professionals that can assist you with your spring cleaning list—check out our site to see what other companies might be available to help you.

  5. Concentrate on the tasks that matter most. If you have a limited amount of time to complete your spring cleaning tasks, then it’s best to prioritize your chores by importance. For example, you would like to wash your window screens and clean your refrigerator’s condenser coil, but you only have enough time for one. Choose the task that will reap the most benefits—cleaning your condenser coil will ensure that it continues to operate properly and more efficiently. When covered with dust and grime, condenser coils have a harder time keeping your refrigerator cool. Cleaning the condenser coil and putting off the window screens until later will ensure that you make the most out of your time.
