Welcome the season of Spring with a fresh, clean and organized home. Getting ready for spring cleaning is half the job done. Trying to tackle an intensive cleanup and organizing exercise without a plan in hand will only leave you and your family feeling overwhelmed and exhausted. Here is how to get organized right now for successful spring cleaning and prepare your home for warmer weather.
Get Organized with Spring Cleaning Checklists
Checklists are a simple yet effective way of getting organized and staying on track. Spend some time drawing up spring cleaning checklists for every room and area in your home. You can also consult any commercial cleaner to get things done easily. Start by drawing up checklists for frequently occupied and used rooms – kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, living room, family room and then, move on to the rarely or infrequently used areas – garage, attic, basement and so on.
Make Spring Cleaning Easy with a Schedule
A schedule, like a checklist, will not only make spring cleaning more organized but will also help you plan your regular routine accordingly. Schedules and routines for spring cleaning will help you take into account the time needed to thoroughly clean and organize the home while managing day-to-day activities and chores. A realistic schedule will spread spring cleaning over a course of a few days or even a few weeks, depending upon how hectic your everyday life is.
Get Organized Now with a Spring Cleaning Kit
Set yourself up for a successful spring clean by putting together a cleaning kit. A small caddy with cleaning supplies – windows, floors, carpets, bathroom and drains, scrubbers, sponges, and brushes as well as dusting cloths and rags, will ensure that when you start cleaning up you wouldn’t end up wasting time looking for a cleaner or a sponge.
Spring Clean Easily with a Cleaning Guide
Do you know how to get that stain out of the carpet? Or how to scrub the outside windows or bathroom grout clean? If not, it is a good idea to spend some time putting together a cleaning guide complete with stain removal and cleaning tips and solutions. Organize it according to room and keep it along with your checklists and schedule. That way, you’ll never have to wonder how to get shiny, clean windows or a stain-free carpet when you start spring cleaning.
A planned and cleaning home organized approach to spring cleaning will not only make it easy for you but also, for your family. Plus, you’ll be able to actually finish the entire exercise without getting overwhelmed and overtired. A schedule, some checklists, a cleaning kit and a guide to cleaning is all that you need to get organized right now for easy spring cleaning.
