Time For Spring Cleaning! Five Tips To Help

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Greenville Upstate

Ah, springtime! The flowers are blooming, the birds are chirping, and the dust is accumulating everywhere. That’s right, it's time for spring cleaning. While cleaning might not be the most exciting thing to do, it is necessary for a healthy and happy home. Here are five tips for spring cleaning that will make the process more enjoyable and efficient.

1. Make a plan

The first tip is to make a plan. Don't just jump into cleaning without a plan, or you might end up spending more time than necessary. Take a look around your house and make a list of the areas that need the most attention. Prioritize tasks by importance, and make sure to break them down into smaller tasks so you can tackle them one by one. And of course, don't forget to reward yourself after each task completed. After all, you deserve it!

2. Declutter

Spring cleaning is a perfect opportunity to get rid of all the clutter that has accumulated throughout the winter months. Go through each room and get rid of anything you no longer need or use. If it’s still in good condition, donate it to a charity. Not only will decluttering make your home look more spacious, but it will also give you a sense of accomplishment. And who doesn't love the feeling of letting go of all that unnecessary stuff? It's like unloading a heavy backpack!

3. Clean from top to bottom

When cleaning, always start from the top and work your way down. This will help you avoid having to re-clean areas you've already cleaned. Dust and debris tend to fall downward, so cleaning from top to bottom will ensure that you don't miss any spots. Plus, it's more efficient, and who doesn't love efficiency? It's like the superhero of spring cleaning!

4. Enlist help

Don't try to do everything yourself. Enlist the help of family or friends, and turn cleaning into a fun activity. You can assign tasks, play music, or even have a cleaning competition. The more, the merrier, right? Just don't forget to bribe them with snacks or pizza. A clean home is a happy home, and a home with pizza is a happier home!

5. Reward yourself

Last but not least, remember to reward yourself after all the hard work is done. Treat yourself to a bubble bath, a glass of wine, or a new book. You deserve it after all the cleaning, and it will give you something to look forward to. Plus, who doesn't love a good reward? It's like the cherry on top of the spring cleaning sundae!

In conclusion, spring cleaning doesn't have to be a daunting task. By making a plan, decluttering, cleaning from top to bottom, enlisting help, and rewarding yourself, you can make it a fun and enjoyable activity. And remember, a clean home is a happy home, and a happy home is a home with pizza!

I just do it one step at a time throughout the year. Much easier overall and much less about it will lead to a headache. You know?

Great list of tips for spring cleaning, Bill. Of course, in my house, this level of cleaning happens on bi-weekly basis, so it's not a spring activity but a year-round activity.
