Spring cleaning checklist

If you have a plan, your spring cleaning would not be so difficult. We are here to help you with a simple spring cleaning checklist. Once you cover the following major tasks, you’ll have your home spring-cleaned in no time.

Clean the welcome mat

Doormats are one of the dirtiest spots and definitely need a lot of attention. Give them the toughest cleaning they can take to make them welcoming.

Clean carpets and upholstery

Fabrics that have absorbed a winter’s worth of dirt, body oil, and germs will need a deep cleaning to get them ready for another year of wear.

Clean pillows, cushions and blankets

Beat them by hand to remove dust or wash them.

Finish floors

Wax or apply a sealer following label directions to keep your floors looking fresher.

Vacuum and wipe walls and ceilings

The walls may not look as if they need a bath. However, most of them do need a seasonal or preholiday bath.

Dust books and shelves

Take everything off the shelves and dust them all.

Wash mirrors and windows

Clean window treatments

Dust refrigerator coils and defrost the freezer

Dispose or consider donating items you no longer use

Check out your stuff for unwanted clothes, books, toys, games, etc.

Shine and protect wood furniture

Use soft cloths for that purpose.

Reorganize closets

Store winter clothes and replace with warm-weather clothes.

Clean your light fixtures

A stepladder will help a lot. Any all-purpose cleaner and a cloth will give new light to your home.
