As springtime arrives, preparing your home for a massive spring cleaning can often feel daunting. If you have children and pets in your household, it can be downright overwhelming. If you’re determined to get started on spring cleaning without feeling overwhelmed, use these tips and tricks to ensure you’ll get the most out of your spring cleaning project.
Create a List of Tasks
Before you dive into cleaning, create a list of objectives you’d like to complete by the end of your spring cleaning project. The more itemized your list is, the less likely you’ll be to lose focus or become overwhelmed once you actually begin cleaning.
Designate Objectives by Day
Once you have a basic list of different rooms you need to clean, assign each objective to a different day. Instead of cleaning four rooms in one day, spread tasks throughout the week for a more relaxed atmosphere and less stress altogether. Taking on just one space at a time will help you focus on ensuring all areas of your home will get a thorough cleaning.
Break Down Each Cleaning Project In-Depth
Before you begin working in each room individually, break down the rooms into smaller tasks. For example, instead of just planning to clean the living room, specifically plan to launder the drapes, dust all surfaces, vacuum the floors and so on. The more in-depth your task lists are, the more streamlined your cleaning and organizing efforts are likely to be.
Get Organized Before the Big Clean Itself
Getting your home organized is also essential to a massive spring cleaning. Rid your space any excess decor and clutter from all areas you plan to vacuum, mop and scrub down. That way you won’t need to battle with all that extra stuff when it’s time to get down to the nitty-gritty of cleaning.
Knowing how to avoid feeling overloaded when you begin your spring cleaning this year is a way to avoid stress while ensuring your house is clean, beautiful and ready for guests. The more time you spend making spring cleaning plans ahead of time, the easier it will become to tackle the job.
