There are many activities to do in spring that are more satisfying than cleaning. But for many homeowners, leisure should come only after the chores are finished. Spring cleaning requires effort, but you could make the project less stressful and more manageable.
Create a list of things you need to take care of and set a realistic schedule. It also helps to have a printed overview of everything you need to know, including storage, fabric care and stain removal. Complete the following tasks to let the sun shine in and enjoy the brighter days to come.
1. Get those windows sparkling again.
Dust accumulates on your windows and window screens. You have to admit; it’s not every day that you consider cleaning them.
You can use warm water with some mild dishwashing soap to wipe and scrub them off, or you can hire professional cleaners from Patriot Windows and Cleaning Services LLC to handle the job. You’ll be amazed at how much sunlight can enter your home when your windows are squeaky clean.
2. Dust books and shelves.
Remove all items from the shelves and use a feather duster to clean the books. Use a soft, clean cloth to wipe the spines of leather-bound books. Be sure to vacuum all areas, even tight spots and crevices of the shelf.
3. Shine the floors.
Linoleum, laminate, and vinyl floors that have lost their shine should be polished with a wax specifically used for these surfaces. Meanwhile, treat tile and stone floors with either a liquid or paste wax intended for the material.
These are only some of the many things you have to clean and organize at home during spring. What’s important is to focus on one task at a time and enlist the help of family members to make the chores lighter.
