Spring Cleaning Checklist

Spring is here! The weather is gorgeous and it’s time to open the windows and start that spring cleaning. But where to start? Let's just start with the basics.

Throughout the House

  • Vacuum/Wipe Down Walls and Ceilings: Start by vacuuming to remove as much loose dirt and dust as possible. Follow this with a soft cloth. Wash with water and soap mixture to clean really dirty areas.

  • Furniture: Vacuum and clean upholstered items and polish wooden items. Clean all dust and treat any problem areas (tears, knicks/scratches, rust spots, loose parts, etc.)

  • Dust: Choose a quality duster that will trap and remove the dust (ex: microfiber cloth) rather than just spread it around. Dust all surfaces of your home including shelves, knick knacks, photos, lamp shades, door trim, window casings and ceiling fans.

  • Air Vents: Clean these yourself or have them professionally cleaned.

  • Vacuum: Vacuum everywhere including all floors and other areas that can quickly be dusted/cleaned with vacuum attachments.

  • Shampoo Carpets and Rugs: Pretreat stained areas and then clean the entire area with a quality rug steam cleaner. If you have valuable/antique rugs, consult a professional before cleaning.

  • Windows: Clean the windows inside and out. Grab a friend or spouse to help make the job go quicker.

  • Baseboards: Dust and wipe down baseboards.

  • Drapes/Blinds/Window Treatments: Clean the drapes and blinds. If heavy winter drapes are used, remove, clean and store them. Replace with lighter warm weather window treatments.
