1) Deep Clean the Floors

Your floors get a lot of traffic throughout the year. With the snowy weather of winter, now is the time to clean your floors up for spring. If you have hardwood, tile, or vinyl floors consider wet mopping your floors and putting a protective polish over the top. For carpets, consider steam cleaning your high-traffic areas for a deep clean!

2) Remove Hard Water Stains

Hard water stains are usually found on kitchen and bathroom faucets. Use lemon juice to wipe away stains from faucets. A vinegar soak can also help remove stubborn stains and deposits from showerheads and faucets, as well.

3) Clean Windows

Take time to clean the inside and outside of your windows this spring. It can help allow a clearer view when looking out and enjoying the beautiful spring blooms!

4) Clear Away Cobwebs

Over time cobwebs and other debris can gather in hard to reach places. Use a broom to knock down these webs from the corners of your rooms. It can give your space a fresh look for spring!

5) Dust Furniture

Take time to dust away debris from your hard furniture. Your tv stand, coffee table, bookshelf, nightstand, and dresser are all popular places for dust to gather! Helpful tip: dust after you vacuum a room since the vacuum can stir up dust.

6) Wash Curtains

Your curtains may look clean but they collect hair, dust, and other particles throughout the year. Spring is a great time to take them down have them cleaned.

7) Wipe off Baseboards

Baseboards collect all sort of debris due to gravity and the natural air movements inside your home. It's important to clean these accents on a regular basis to help keep your space free of dust and hair. It also gives a clean, finished look to your home.

8) Clean Furniture

Consider vacuuming your living room furniture. Take the cushions off (if your furniture allows) and cleaning the hard to reach crevices.

9) Deep Clean Appliances

Your appliances are typically used on a weekly, if not daily, basis. Run a clean cycle through the dishwasher and spray the oven with cleaner, as well. Wiping out your fridge and microwave can also be beneficial. Consider clearing the vent of lint to your dryer and run a wash cycle for the washer to help reduce the mold that may accumulate.
