If you were to write out all the things you hope to accomplish with your spring cleaning, then it might be a very long list indeed. There is nothing wrong with going “deep” with your spring cleaning. Just think of how much better you’re going to feel when it is all done. Major accomplishment! Not matter how much you clean, you have to make sure you take care of the following four important spring cleaning tasks:
Clean the Carpets
Vacuuming once a week is a good way to tidy up but that might not get up all the dust, dirt and mites that have embedded deep into your carpet. You might want to bring in professional carpet cleaners for that intense steam cleaning. You can also DIY with a rug shampoo and cleaner. Just make sure you do this task last after everything else is done. It is also smart to get it done in the morning so you can open the windows and let it all dry out be dinnertime.
Remove Pet Hair and Dander
Having pets means accepting you’re going to have pet hair. Again, you can stay on top of this through the year with regular vacuuming but for spring cleaning, you’ll want to pull furniture from the walls, go under rugs and get behind any other object where the fur might be lurking. It’s also a good idea to send your pets out for grooming on the same day you’re cleaning. That way the house and the pets will be on the same page!
Clean the Oven
You always realize you have to clean the oven when you bake something new and you smell the burnt stuff from the last meal you made. Some ovens have self-cleaning functions. What that really involves is the oven turning on at a low setting to loosen up the grease. You’ll still have to get in there and wipe it down. The problem with self-cleaning ovens is it always smells like something is burning and that smell lingers. Instead, a simple solution of baking soda and water can get the job done. You just need to have on rubber gloves and use a decent sponge with scrubbing action.
