Its Time For Spring Cleaning
Wednesday May 22nd, 2019
Spring time is here, and that means it's time for spring cleaning.
Cleaning can be a very scary word for a lot of people, but its so important to do a deep clean every once and a while to keep your house in good shape.
In real estate some of the toughest parts of listing a home is cleaning and de-cluttering it. If you can do a de-clutter and deep clean once a year, this dreaded deep clean before selling your home will be much less painful.
Here are some tips for cleaning this spring:
1. Get The Whole Family Involved
Yes that's right, go grab the kids and tell them its time to clean. Give each family member a room in the house to work on so that everyone can be involved and feel accomplished by the new clean house.
2. Clean Top to Bottom
Work from the ceilings to walls to floors. This way all dust and debris off the walls will fall downward and you're not re-cleaning the same space twice.
3. Don't Forget About Your Windows
Windows are one of the most important things to clean in the spring time. Inside and out cleaning allows for more natural sunlight to enter your home. And hey, its spring time, going outside to clean isn't so bad in the warm sunlight that we missed so much in the winter.
4. Declutter & Donate
Spring time is when you can get rid of those clothes you haven't worn in years or finally tackle that closet of furniture you never use and donate it to a local charity. Getting rid of things you never use feels so refreshing and can also help out another person in your community by donating.
5. Finally, Don't Forget About the Little Things
Things like the ceiling fan in the bathroom or baseboards in the house are often neglected when people do spring cleaning. Try to wipe down your fans, clean your baseboards and cupboards and you'll thank me for how much better your house looks!
Cheers to some fun spring cleaning for 2018.
