Spring Cleaning Tips

Once winter is over, most families are eager to get outside and enjoy some fresh air and a few barbecues with friends. A long winter season can leave your home looking and smelling musty. Once you open the curtains, you'll also notice a layer of dust on everything. Though dusting can be a boring chore, it is necessary for a clean home.

Remove the Clutter

In order to begin your spring cleaning, it can be very helpful to move a few things outside. This can include rugs, bikes and larger toys. If you have small tables that are easy to lift, and plenty of room in the backyard, consider moving these also. The idea is to get as much of the clutter out of the way as possible. Be sure to dust these items while they're outside before bringing them back indoors.

Use the Right Cleaning Tools

Now that you have some room to move around, you'll find it much easier to get to baseboards and ceiling fans. Vacuum the majority of the dust off ceiling fan blades, then use a product like the Swiffer Duster to remove smaller particles of dust. There's also a tool to dust miniblinds. If you have the room in your backyard, you can take miniblinds down and dust them outdoors as well. This will make it easy to dust window sills and clean window panes.

Miscellaneous Items That Should Be Cleaned

Springtime is a good time to change all the air filters in your home. You should also change the filters in your HVAC unit. Check outside around the unit. You'll often find that leaves and trash have blown into your yard and surround your HVAC unit. Rake or blow these leaves and trash away so that the A/C unit will perform optimally when warmer weather begins.

The Spring Garage Sale

Vacuuming the furniture can also be a good idea, especially if you have pets or children. Furniture can accumulate quite a bit of dust and dirt over a long winter. Don't forget about the garage. If you have older kids around the house, this is a good chore for them. Most of us will find enough junk lying around the house and the garage to have a profitable spring garage sale. This can be a good way to earn some extra money while getting rid of the clutter.

Quick Tips for Fall Cleaning

Whether you live in an apartment or a big rambling house, fall is a great time to clean out closets, sheds and garages. The weather starts to get a little cooler, signaling the coming of winter. Without even realizing it, many of us can accumulate a great deal of clutter. You may not even see it, but there are probably loose papers, books and the customary junk lying around the house.

Don't Put it Off

Though this happens in every family, it can take days of cleaning and organizing to put things right again. Like most people nowadays, there's simply no time to spend cleaning out the house and garage. On the other hand, the longer you put it off, the more work you create for yourself. So allot an hour a day or one whole Saturday for deep cleaning.

Get Help with Chores!

Whether you're cleaning the attic, garage or living room, be sure to get the family involved. After all, your whole family created the mess and clutter, so everyone should be willing to clean it up. If you have several people working on chores, it goes much faster and once everyone is done, you can celebrate by going out to a favorite restaurant for dinner.

Rent a Storage Unit

If you have too much furniture or junk you aren't sure what to do it, consider renting a storage space. A storage unit can be a good place to take the overflow of clothes, furniture and souvenirs from your summer vacation. Usually, you'll find a secure storage place nearby. Having a garage sale is also a good way to get rid of unwanted items, plus you can make a little extra cash.
