There’s no feeling more satisfying than looking around your home and seeing a fresh, clean, and renewed space.
However, the journey to get to that point can be tedious and even confusing. What tasks should you be doing in order to get your home back in order and feel like you’ve just moved in?
In this post, we’ll discuss the top five most important tasks to include in your spring cleaning and give a little detail on how to carry them out so you feel fresh and new by the end of it all.
Spring Cleaning Checklist for Your Home
Declutter and Clean Your Attic
First of all, let’s take a look at one of the dirtiest and most cluttered areas of anyone’s home: the attic. This is a space that we rarely venture into, and mostly use for storage, which means that dust, clutter, and goodness knows what else are the standard.
Taking the time once a year to brave the attic to give it a good clean and reorganize what you have stored up there is important. If you’re not feeling up to the task, a professional service like Attic Pros will be able to handle this for you and ensure your attic is clean, dry, and free of any potential pests.
Deep Clean Your Kitchen
Another area of your home that can build up more grime and dirt than we’d like to admit is the kitchen. With all the food and waste that circulates in this room, it’s only natural that it will need a deeper and more serious clean from time to time.
Spend some time deep cleaning your oven and appliances, clearing out your pantry and throwing out expired items, and even decluttering the tools and utensils in your cupboards. Once you’ve decluttered, you might look into some new storage solutions to help you keep your cupboards better organized going forward.
Organize Your Home Office
If you work from home, you’ll know the struggle of the cluttered office space. This is bad enough when you have a home office, but becomes unbearable when you have to work in a more communal area of your home!
Spend some time going through all your drawers and folders, and reorganizing your work life. Give the room (and your desk) a good scrub down to make sure it’s clean and fresh, and you can even reorganize your files and go through your paperwork to get rid of any documents that aren’t relevant anymore.
Revive Your Outdoor Spaces
Finally, take a long, hard look at your outdoor space, and think about what you can do to bring it back to life. While we all know that dirt belongs outdoors, that doesn’t mean it belongs on the patio!
Spend some time cleaning your deck, fixing up your landscaping, and generally cleaning up the areas that gather clutter and dirt. Wash any cushions that belong with your outdoor furniture, clean cobwebs out from under the table, and even give the pots and vases a rinse off.
