The Top 10 Rules of Spring Cleaning

house cleaning OaktonThe House Cleaning Oakton experts love spring cleaning! It’s a chance to make a real difference to homes. A tidy home is a welcoming one. There is also plenty of research to show that de-cluttering makes us feel better too. Mess drags you down.

If you’re planning your own spring clean, here are some rules to follow:

Assemble your supplies and equipment. You might have run out of furniture polish, or you could need a duster specifically for blinds. If you have everything to hand at the start, your enthusiasm won’t be dampened by having to go out and buy something.

Get the big jobs finished first. Clean the oven and fridge. These are jobs most people don’t like so once they are out of the way, the rest of the housework is a breeze.

Declutter next. That messy spare room that you’ve meant to sort for ages? Get it done now. De-cluttering is often easier if you start small. Allocate ten minutes at a time and don’t do anymore after that.

Clean those windows. You want the sun to stream in, after all. Vinegar solutions make great, natural cleansing agents for windows.

Enlist help. Why not make it a chance to catch up with neighbors? A spring clean, followed by lunch to say thanks?

Invest in new soft furnishings. Why not reward yourself with new bed linen, cushions or throws? It’s an effortless way to change the look of a room.

Clean the carpet. In the winter months, we spend longer inside, and we tramp all kinds of dirt into carpets and rugs. House cleaning Oakton at Budget-Maids offers professional carpet cleaning services.

Choose green cleaning products. You have plenty to choose from these days. They are good for the environment and good for your home.

Think of spring cleaning as exercise. If you put plenty of effort into it – stretching up to clean windows, mopping floors vigorously and going up and down stairs often as you tidy things away – you’ll get a great work-out. Who needs the gym?

Sort out repairs. Leaky faucets, creaky hinges, holes in the plaster – take this opportunity to fix them.
