Tips for a deep Spring Clean

With April showers upon us, many homeowners are prepping for the spring cleaning season.

In this season of regeneration, everyone is ready to clean out the winter cobwebs and start off fresh.

Once the warmer temperatures and rains come, homeowners know it’s time for a thorough cleaning. Here are three deep-cleaning tasks that are perfect for the spring cleaning frenzy.

Soaking your bed linens

Outside of running the washing machine, soaking linens is likely a step many people don’t think of doing. While it often gets ignored, a good soak could go a long way. It helps to freshen up your home and make things smell brand new. To soak, follow these simple directions:

1. Fill your bathtub with a mixture of warm water and a laundry cleaning product.

2. Soak all of your sheets, pillowcases, and anything else you deem fit for about 15 minutes.

3. When they’re soaked and rinsed, put them in the dryer. As an added, scented bonus you can use dryer sheets to make everything feel soft and cozy when you lay your head down at night.

Deep clean your carpets

Whether it’s mud or freshly cut grass, your carpets may already be begging for a deep clean. Vacuuming your carpets is normally a weekly task, if not more. But, it is also a good idea to deep clean them every few months, especially if you are a pet owner. This will help maintain the freshness of the carpet and its life. Professionals are more than willing to come in and clean your carpets, but you can also do this task yourself. If you own a carpet cleaning machine, then you’re all set. If not, check out your local hardware store for carpet cleaners and powders within your budget.

Cleaning out your closets

If you are someone whose wardrobe has gotten out of hand and you don’t even know what is in your closet anymore, then this process should be first on your spring cleaning list. One organization tip to help transform your winter closet into your spring closet would be to invest in storage bins. Moving all of your winter clothes into storage bins will help provide more hanging space for your spring and summer clothes. Also, be sure to pull out clothing you no longer wear and donate it for more space. If you live somewhere with a lot of snow, you can clean up any boots that may have accumulated salt from the winter and polish them up for next season.

If you’re trying to stay on top of chores, be sure to repeat these 3 tips after summer is over, so your home is prepared and fresh for the fall and winter as well! For those who are ready to upgrade to a new, fresh space please feel free to contact a member of our Housing Buzz Team today.
