Spring Cleaning Tips

Here is our list of spring cleaning tips.

Ready your Checklist

Before you tackle any rooms in your house, it’s important to make a checklist of items to ensure that you don’t miss out on anything.

You should start with rooms that may not have had as much attention when it comes to cleaning. Go take a look and make notes on anything that you might want to add to the checklist.

After you make the checklist, ask others in your household to also write down things that they noticed need to be cleaned in the house. This is a great way to ensure that you’re covering all of your bases.

After you’re satisfied with the checklist, start to organize things. You can make a schedule of when you will clean each room and get to each task. This ensures that you won’t forget to complete anything and will have accountability for when each room will get done.

Things to Clean and Do in Every Room

Cleaning every room in your house may feel like a daunting task, but never fear: we’ve created a  to-do list for you to follow when spring cleaning your home.


If the rooms in your home are disorganized, it is a good idea to clean up and organize before you begin cleaning. For example, if a toy room has toys on the floor, put them away or find an organized solution to store them.

As you organize clutter, you can put it into two different piles: one pile to keep and one pile to donate. This can help you create a home filled with items that your family regularly uses and enjoys.


All your windows will need to be cleaned to look pristine and showcase the beautiful outdoors. You will want to take the time to wipe away any dust and grime off the windows, as well as help make them clean to have that crisp, clean view outdoors.


Vacuuming is something that typically needs to be done in every room. There can be dust and loose crumbs that you didn’t even see on the floor until you start vacuuming.


Mopping your floors is important because it can help you wash away bacteria that can be harmful to you and your family. It also helps your floors sparkle and shine.


Take a duster and dust areas in each room. Make sure that you can get shelves, nooks, and crannies that you may have otherwise overlooked.
