They call it Spring cleaning but let’s be honest this more heavy duty cleaning is done all year round. Spring cleaning is hardly going to be something many people enjoy doing but it can actually be made much easier and yes even fun, well at least a little bit.
Spring cleaning doesn’t have to be something you avoid when you follow these tips. So, without further ado let’s look at my top picks for making Spring cleaning more orderly, efficient, fun and easy.
Have A Plan
One of the most important things you can do to make Spring cleaning easier is to have a plan. Think about it how are you are going to tackle the job? Are you going to focus on one room at a time or maybe do specific jobs across your whole home before moving on to the other jobs?
You could do all the hoovering first and then work on the de-cluttering, everdecly method does have its own merits and you will likely have your own preferences. It doesn’t really matter how you decide to do it just make sure you have plan about how you are going to approach the cleaning. One good tip is to focus on the harder messy jobs first.
Don’t put them off get them out of the way first once they are done it will make the rest of the cleaning feel much easier. Your plan should have a schedule as well it might sound strange but actually saying to yourself that you will start cleaning at a certain time will help you stick to it.
De-clutter As You Go
Spring cleaning isn’t just about tidying up it is also a great time to de-clutter your home as well. De-cluttering will make any future cleaning much easier and make your home look tidier too. You can also use the de-cluttering to do a little redesigning as you clean up as well.
Have you been thinking about moving some furniture around a little bit? Then now is the perfect time to do it, just make sure you don’t get to distracted with focusing on the little details you can always come back to them once the main brunt of the work is done.
Wear Old Clothing
Spring cleaning can be messy work especially if you haven’t done it in a while. So, I would strongly advise wearing old clothes it will help ensure nothing you are wearing gets damaged or stained. You can also utilise things like overalls as well which have the benefit of giving you more storage on your person which can certainly come in handy.
Play Music or Podcasts
This is a somewhat divisive tip but I think it is worth including because it can make the whole Spring cleaning process much easier. Playing some music or a podcast whether through headphones or out loud as you clean can help people enjoy the whole cleaning process more and you’ll be doing something you enjoy while you work.
This can make tackling difficult jobs much easier but some people might get too distracted by music or podcasts so they end up either not focusing on what they are doing or end up stopping altogether. Everyone is different so if you feel like you’ll get too distracted try playing ambient sounds instead there is less chance of distractions and it can still help you focus.
Take A Break
Long periods of Spring cleaning are sometimes inevitable if you haven’t done a clean-up for quite some time then you are really going to have a big job ahead of you. So, make sure you take regular breaks every so often to help make managing the job easier.
There are plenty of different ways you can structure your breaks from taking ten minutes after each room is complete to taking a short break after every hour or so. Or simply take a break when you feel like it as long as you don’t take too long.
Consider Hiring A Cleaning Company
If you really don’t want to deal with Spring cleaning then you do have other options. Don’t feel embarrassed about it not many people enjoy Spring cleaning so if you don’t want to deal with it you can always utilise a cleaning company instead.
A professional cleaning company will be able to design the perfect housekeeping service for your home and will be able to ensure maximum efficiency and the best results. So, if you want a shortcut to success when it comes to Spring cleaning calling in a cleaning company is what you should do.
