5 Tips to Kickstart Your Spring Cleaning Routine

Updated: Mar 20


It's been a long winter! Longer and brighter days are finally here. Seasonal depression is starting to lift for some of us - and the motivation to clean the place up is setting in! If you're feeling it too, let's start spring cleaning ASAP. It is a great opportunity to refresh your home and welcome the new season. Check out these 5 tips to kickstart your spring cleaning routine and bring a breath of fresh air into your living space:




1. Spring cleaning consists of 2 major parts - Organizing and cleaning. Start with Decluttering: Before diving into deep cleaning, take the time to declutter each room. Sort through items and decide what to keep, donate, or discard. Clearing out clutter not only makes cleaning easier but also creates a sense of spaciousness and organization in your home. If you think it may help - start with the existing storage areas. Look at the items that haven't been used since last spring and determine whether you want to continue using up space with them or if you're ready to let them go.



2. Here are two major spring cleaning organizing tips to help you get started:


   - Invest in Storage Solutions: Maximize storage space by investing in storage bins, baskets, shelving units, and drawer organizers. Utilize vertical space and hidden storage areas to keep belongings neatly organized and out of sight.


   - Create Zones: Designate specific zones for different activities or items within each room. For example, create a designated entryway area with hooks for coats and baskets for shoes. Establishing zones helps streamline daily routines and prevents clutter from accumulating in common areas.



3. When each room is organized and ready to be cleaned - prioritize cleaning high-traffic areas such as the kitchen, bathroom, and living room. These areas tend to accumulate the most dirt and grime and will benefit the most from a thorough cleaning. With any time and energy left - continue cleaning the lower-traffic areas. This is also a great time to book a professional cleaning service. Once everything is organized, decluttered, and sorted - it's great to have a professional come in and do a one-time deep clean that you can easily maintain over the year. Don't Forget the Details: While deep cleaning, pay attention to often overlooked areas such as baseboards, light fixtures, and vents. Dust and wipe down surfaces, vacuum or mop floors, and wash curtains or blinds to remove built-up dust and allergens.



5. To avoid being overwhelmed - take it one room at a time. Focus on one room for organizing and decluttering until you are delighted with the results. To avoid items lingering between the old spot and the correct spot - put items where they are. need to go the first time you pick them up.



By incorporating these tips into your spring cleaning routine, you'll not only have a cleaner and more organized home but also create a welcoming space to enjoy the brighter days ahead. Happy spring cleaning!
