Spring Cleaning Must-Do’s
If you are fed up with cold weather and unpredictable snowstorms, then you’re like the rest of us and chomping at the bit for spring to get here. But while nicer weather and school vacations may be around the corner, one of the downsides of spring is the cleaning that comes with it. After all, your home probably needs an honest deep clean if the last time you did as much was around the holidays.
Here is a look at some spinning cleaning must-dos that you’ll need to keep in mind this season.
Change Out Old Filters And Hoses
If you aren’t very handy, then you may not know what changes need to be made around your home. However, some of the most important must-dos include replacing the air filter in your home. Along with keeping your air more clean, a new filter is often needed to ensure that you are getting the most out of your electricity usage. If you plan on upping the air conditioning usage this summer, then you’ll want to have a properly working system, which includes proper fitting filters and hoses.
Reorganize For Saving Time In The Future
If you are going to be cleaning your apartment anyways, then why not take the time to do a few added features that will save you a lot of time in the future. For example, adding new cabinets, or even furniture with storage, not only gives you a place to store your items, but it will also add new features to your living space. Sometimes the best feeling can be to reward yourself with something new after all of your spring cleaning. Do yourself a favor and make that purchase something that will provide multiple functions in the future.
Let There Be Light
You would be surprised by how big a difference some natural light can make. If the winter was exceptionally harsh on your windows, then it’s time to get out there and clean them. By eliminating water stains, you’ll notice a lot more natural light flowing throughout your home.
And even if you don’t have a lot of cleaning equipment lying around the home, you can still get crystal clear windows with something you already have. That being, newspaper. That’s right, using newspaper to clean your windows will make for a streak-free shine that will truly make your home brighter. This is a quick and easy fix, that makes for a huge difference.
Give Diligence To Areas With High Traffic
It should make sense that certain parts of your apartment will get more attention while spring cleaning. Therefore, the final must-do to consider this spring includes cleaning the rugs and carpets in the busiest areas in your home. Taking the time to clean the entryway to your apartment or the area in your living space, will both make for a big difference on the overall appearance of your home.
If you don’t have a cleaning staff to come help, then you can’t avoid spring cleaning. To ensure that you get the most of your efforts, follow the must-dos on this list.
