Dust bunnies have taken residence in every nook and cranny of your living room, your light fixtures need some attention, and your linen closet needs its annual reorganization. Your house needs some TLC… it’s time for Spring Cleaning!
Although spring-cleaning may seem like a daunting task, there are simple, effective ways you can manage your time to have the organizational prowess of your dreams.
First and foremost, make a schedule.
Take cleaning step-by-step. You don’t have to clean your entire house overnight. Carve out time every weekend to clean one room. Inch by inch, hour by hour, day by day, your house will transform into a cleaner and tidier space.
Focus on de-cluttering your home.
When guests and relatives come over, it is hard not to stuff miscellaneous trinkets and parts into drawers, bins, and closets and forget all about them. Take time to go through your storage spaces and recycle or donate things you don’t need anymore. In our Graham Hart homes, we pride ourselves with optimal storage space with seamless designs to make your house equally stylish and clutter-free.
If you are having trouble letting go of items in your storage spaces, ask yourself this simple question: Have I used or worn this item in the past three years? If you haven’t, most likely you do not need it!
Think eco-friendly when cleaning.
When you use different cleaning solutions, it is important to use products that do not include toxic chemicals that could affect your respiratory health. A cleaning tool that is very helpful and chemical free is a steam cleaner! Steam cleaners only use water, so they are 100% free of chemicals that could affect your health.
Even a simple damp cloth is a natural solution that can help you remove years’ worth of dirt from your walls, windows, or light switches. It is important to give these forgetful places some love! Lastly, it is important not to mix different cleaning solutions. Check out this Good Housekeeping article to learn which cleaning products you should never, ever mix.
Work from top to bottom.
It is important to clean your home from ceiling to floor and not the other way around. This prevents debris from the ceiling falling on your freshly cleaned floors!
At Graham Hart, we want you to have a home that fulfills your dreams in every way. Regardless of if you enjoy spring-cleaning or not, we believe everyone should have pride in their home. Check out our ‘Find Your Home’ tab to find the home of your dreams.
