Cleaning the Kitchen and Dining Room
The kitchen and the dining room are places that naturally get dirty because, well, that’s how food is. Fortunately, you can eliminate crumbs, sauce stains, grease dribbles, and all sorts of other messes as long as you keep your eyes open and look for them. Go beyond just wiping down the counters, too. Have you handled the following chores?
- Cleaning out the refrigerator and freezer
- Wiping down the refrigerator and freezer shelves
- Disposing of any broken or unwanted kitchenware
- Cleaning out the microwave, toaster oven, or oven
- Washing hand cloths and dish rags
Cleaning the Bathrooms
Bathrooms also tend to get dirty over time. We’ll spare you the explanation—your imagination will fill in the blanks just fine. As you already know, a clean bathroom is important for obvious reasons. That’s why you can’t really overdo cleaning the bathroom. Because of this, try to tackle all the following tasks on this list.
- Scrubbing the toilet bowl with cleaner
- Wiping down the outside of the toilet
- Cleaning the shower/bathtub
- Washing the shower liner
- Wiping down the sink and mirror
General Tasks for Around the House
Spring cleaning goes beyond just the kitchen and the bathroom, of course. It’s going to take you to the remote corners of your home, and you’re going to find chores to do everywhere you go. That’s why we have thought of many more tasks for you to handle on the first floor, the second floor, and beyond.
- Wash Fabrics. It’s good to be in the habit of washing the bedsheets. However, you need to go the extra mile for spring cleaning. Don’t forget the pillowcases of the throw pillows on your sofas. How about the sofas themselves? Sprayable fabric cleaner can do wonders for a couch that smells like the dog.
- Dust. Dust goes everywhere, even the places you don’t normally think about. Grab your duster of choice and hunt it down. You’ll find it on the baseboards, windowsills, shelves, and even on top of fan blades. When you clean up dust, you’ll be rewarded with literal breaths of fresh air moving forward, too.
- Vacuum and Mop. Do you think about the floors often? You should, because you’re constantly walking on them, perhaps even inadvertently tracking dirt around. That’s why it’s good to vacuum and mop all the floors in the house. Yes, that includes underneath your furniture and carpets as well.
Removing Clutter from Your Home
As time goes on, you might find yourself stumbling over excess belongings in your home. When this happens, it’s easy to collect them all and move them to an out-of-the-way storage space, such as your basement or attic. However, while you’re in the middle of this process, you might just find that your storage space is already chockful of junk. Then, when you think back, you’ll realize that you’ve done this dozens and dozens of times before. Now, you’ve got no space to spare!
When your collection of junk has spiraled out of control, it might be time to take some time to determine what can stay and what can go. This might be the most important of all our spring cleaning tips. Take a look at everything in your home and ask yourself if you’ve used it in the past year. If not, then there’s a good chance that the belonging in question is junk, plain and simple!
Take all those unwanted items and put them in the trash bin. Or, even better, take them to a nearby donation center like the Habitat for Humanity ReStore. Once that stuff is out of your house, you’ll immediately notice how much more open and clean your home is. And don’t forget that if you need help removing this clutter, companies like Altitude Hauling would love to help you. Our junk removal services are always available because there’s always a neighbor that needs someone to remove their junk. We’ll even recycle and donate as much of your junk as possible for the sake of the environment.
