Every spring, many make the vow to join the spring cleaning frenzy. The idea of spring cleaning is actually easier said than done. When the time finally comes to get the cleaning started, it is very easy to become overwhelmed with the amount of work that actually has to be done. It’s amazing what one winter season can do to a home! Before starting it is a very good idea to make a checklist so that you know exactly what it is you would like to accomplish. Below are a list of things that you might want to consider when making your very own checklist.
What materials do you need to use?
It is easiest to tackle the job when you know what you need. Make a list of exactly what you need so that you won’t have to do any last minute shopping. Gather all of your materials before you begin to clean so that you stay as organized as possible.
What areas need the most time and attention?
If you know exactly what rooms you would like to clean then you will be able to plan your schedule better. Planning a schedule before you start will assist you in staying on track with your work. Also, make sure to stay cleaning one area at a time. Do not become distracted and begin on another area, because trust me it will take you forever to finish your work.
How will I get rid of junk, and where will I put all of my junk?
De-cluttering your house is the very first step to the spring fix. It is important to get rid of junk before you begin so that there is nothing in your way when you start the actually scrubbing, dusting, etc. Finding something to put your junk/trash in before you get started will enable you to get through your work faster.
