Every year the phrase ‘Spring Cleaning’ gets tossed around, and every year people’s anxieties grow. At a glance the concept of cleaning your home from top to bottom can be overwhelming, especially due to the added mess pets can bring and the extra time young children can add to your already busy schedule.
If you have the right tools, the right knowledge, and break it down room-by-room, task-by-task it can be very manageable. By using a basic Spring Cleaning checklist you can work through the necessary tasks. The checklist style allows you can do it all in one day, or stretch your Spring Cleaning tasks over a couple weeks. You can also assign different tasks to different members of the household.
We’ve created an extensive Spring Cleaning checklist that you can use to work your way throughout your home. Download a printable version here. The the best cleaning products for Spring Cleaning can be found on our website here.
One of the most useful Spring Cleaning tool is a high quality microfibre cloth. We recommend the eCloth brand as they last up to 300 washes and work quite well. For cleaning glass and windows the Glass and Polishing cloth is our top choice. It cleans to a bright shine with only water and a little bit of elbow grease.
When cleaning flooring our top choice is the Hoover FloorMate Deluxe or BONA Mop Kit. The FloorMate will deep clean all sealed surfaces and removes years of dirt and grime. For a more basic clean and maintenance strategy the Swiss made BONA is like no other. It won’t leave streaks and is environmentally friendly. These tools will make your Spring Cleaning simple and quick!
