Spring Cleaning Preparation

Spring Cleaning Preparation 101

Now that spring is finally here and summer is just around the corner, now more than ever people are cleaning their homes and getting it ready for the new season. How does one even start with this type of house cleaning however? To learn more about how to prep for a spring cleaning, check out the information we here at Madam Clean have provided below. 

Declutter Your Home 

Before getting into the nit and grit of a spring cleaning, decluttering your home is important. Any clothes, toys, and extra items sprawled out on the floor, counter, tabletop or sofa should be put in their proper place so there is enough space to perform the rest of this cleaning properly. This way, instead of cleaning around these cluttered messes, you can handle everything at once.  

Once you are done with the decluttering as described above, we also recommend that you go through your clothes and items and figure out what you don’t need. Since this change in seasons is usually an indicator for change, it is always great to start that transition with a newly cleaned home. Anything you do not need anymore should either be donated, given to a loved one or thrown away. 

Clean Your Fridge/Freezer 

One of the main cleanings that often goes overlooked is that of a fridge/freezer cleaning. During the springtime, this is a great cleaning task to focus on as you may have left your fridge messy and full of needless things for too long. In many cases, people are truly shocked when they find out how much stuff they have to throw away due to expiry dates. Once you are done this cleaning, you will thank yourself— a clean fridge & freezer makes for an easier day to day routine overall. 

Wash Everything 

Tablecloths, placemats, rugs, pillow covers, decorative throws — these are just a few of the many fabrics people overlook when it comes to laundry. While these types of items don’t have to be cleaned as often as regular clothes, it is vital that you clean them every now and then for maximum cleanliness + freshness. Have any makeup brushes that are dirty? Wash them as well! Basically, if you can think of something you normally don’t wash that can be washed, you should do it. This is often a cleaning task many people forget (or never do!). 

Make a Checklist 

While a spring cleaning is straightforward to lots of people, some people will want to customize this cleaning to their home’s needs. If you fall into this category, we highly recommend that you create a checklist with everything you need completed. This list can be organized chronologically, in terms of importance, by room, by task, basically however you see fit. Creating a checklist makes a cleaning much easier in almost every situation.
