Easy Spring Cleaning List (Room by Room)

Spring Cleaning List

It’s that time of year again, spring cleaning time. Though most folks dread it, spring cleaning is necessary to completely cleanse your home, improve air quality, and clear clutter. Though technically you don’t need to do it in spring, it does provide the most optimal weather for doing these tasks.

 

It doesn’t really matter what room you start in, but it does matter the order in which you clean things. Our Spring cleaning tip is to clean the room top-down.

 

What that means is you’ll start by cleaning thing at the top of the room (Ceiling , light fixtures), then work your way down (Walls, window and door frames, windows, window sills, furniture) until you reach the floor.  With this method, any excess dirt or dust that may have fallen will end up on the floor, which you’ll clean last. Use this method while going

though our checklist below!
