Spring cleaning tips


There are so many things that people want to do once spring comes. One thing that a lot of people do is spring clean. The reason why it is called spring cleaning is because in the olden days when spring would come people would clean the houses to get all the soot that had collected from their fireplaces all winter out of their houses. Now days we do a spring cleaning to just do a sweep of the whole house and make sure to get any of the dust out that might have collected through out the year. Here are some spring cleaning tips that you might want to use to make sure that you get your house in tip top shape.

The first tip is to make sure that you go through your house and do a deep clean in every room. You can do this by going through closets and taking out any clothes that do not it any more or are not in season. For example if it is April you will probably not need snow suites anymore. You will want to make sure that you have a coat closet or something that you can put all of the clothes away that are out of season so that you will know where to pull them out next year when you need them.

The second tip is to go through and clean and wash all of your base boards. If this is not something you do regularly you will probably have a lot of dirt and dust that has collected on them over time. Doing this at least once a year will help them not to get overly dirty. You will want to make sure that you use a damp rag so that you can wipe away all of the dirt and dust and not just smear it around. Aldo using a wet rag will help you to see where the base boards are clean and where you need to wipe over again.

The third tip is to wash the walls. Walls are a thing that often gets neglected. The reason for this is because you are usually in such a hurry to get the majority of your room cleaned that you do not take the time to wash down the walls. Plus the walls take so much more time to wipe down. So make sure to take the time at least once a year to go through and wipe down all your walls so that they will stay some what clean.

The fourth tip is to wash your windows. The winter can cause your windows to become a lot dirtier because of the fact that the snow is mixed with dirt. Because of this it is nice to at least once a year to go through and wash not just the insides but the outsides of all of your windows. You may also want to wash off your screens to help keep them clean of spider webs and other debris that might collect on them over time.

The fifth tip is to shampoo your carpets. You might vacuum your carpets all the time. But during the winter your carpets might become dirtier because of people having wet and muddy feet that come in from outside. Because of this it might be a good idea to take the time to either pay some one to come in and shampoo your carpets or take the time yourself and shampoo your carpets. This will help your carpets from becoming dirty and stained from dirt being smashed into the carpet.

These are just some of the tips for spring cleaning. There is a lot of other things that you can do when it come to spring cleaning. It is just up to you on how in depth of cleaning you want to do.
