Clean & Fresh Home Checklist

Spring cleaning is important for everyone, especially right now with COVID-19. That is why you should try and enjoy a home that is as fresh and clean as possible, and this is not as hard as you may believe. The best wat to begin is by trying to tackle your home’s dirtiest spots when you have some free time. Also, make sure you have your best products for cleaning at hand. They will make the job way easier.

Make a Schedule

Check the rooms in your home and scope out what areas need more work than others. This will help you determine where to start and how to allot time to each of the tasks at hand. The best way to determine where your work should be put into is by going room by room. If you are feeling overwhelmed, you can even look for a schedule or a spring-cleaning checklist online and modify it to fit your household.

Declutter

Before you begin with your specific schedule for each room, make sure to declutter spaces around you.

Clutter can imply dust inhalation and a messy workspace of home can certainly complicate your stress levels. Since we are spending a lot of time in our homes and perhaps our offices specially, we need to try to keep a clean workspace. This can influence our workflow as well as our attitudes. That is why we should set aside some time to dust and organize our offices including our desk workspace. You may be pleasantly surprised by how fresh you feel after you eliminate unnecessary stress from your life.

Some of the areas you can focus on include:

Doormats

A good tip in order to trap more dirt is by by using two mats, one outside the door and one inside. To refresh your mats, you can hose them down and air dry them. Vacuum indoor ones on both sides going over the back will push trapped dirt out and you can clean it off the floor.

Windows and Walls

We know cleaning the floors can be common knowledge, but have you forgotten about your windows and walls? Not all dust settles on the floor and other surfaces. Just use a damp towel to wipe down walls and blinds, starting from above. Remove and wipe down the window screens outside. With the window we do not suggest using chemical cleaners. A steam cleaner will work wonders. Also, try to clean your window on a cloudy day. The sunlight can create streaks.

Clean under furniture

Get someone to help you move your sofa and chairs and roll up area rugs before vacuuming the floors. Make sure to get the crevices since they tend to trap lots of dirt. In the kitchen, you can disconnect kitchen appliances and vacuum behind them. Now, for actually cleaning your sofa and restore a smooth surface you can clean them with a microfiber cloth after vacuuming them. As you may know, we tend to eat on our sofas sometimes which can leave residues behind. Vacuuming and dusting incorporate good cleaning care to your routine.

Moving on to your rooms:

Wardrobe organization

Storing items, you are not currently wearing will help streamline your wardrobe organization. Try and store seasonal items like gloves, winter clothing items, and boots. This will allow you to have plenty of space for spring clothing. Wherever you decide to store your seasonal garments, always label so you know where to find your winter gear next year.

Bedrooms

Give a portion of your spring-cleaning efforts for thoroughly cleaning each room. In the bedroom, flip your mattresses. Wash blankets and comforters or take them to the dry cleaner. Wash your bed sheets or have them dry-cleaned as well. In order to clean your pillows (we recommend you do this at least once a week) hang them outside in the fresh air or freshen them with the air cycle of your dryer with no heat applied.

Bathrooms

Now it is time to throw away any expired products you may be keeping in your bathroom. Go through your medicine cabinets and discard outdated items. Replace worn shower curtains, bathmats or wash them thoroughly. Give your bathroom a new and fresh smell.
