Longer days, sunshine, and blooming flowers can only mean it’s time to pick your cleaning supplies and start that big spring clean. There’s no better time than spring to give your home or business a good and thorough clean.
Spring cleaning helps restore hygiene and, in the process, alleviates stress and lifts spirits. The benefits, however, don’t come easy. Spring cleaning is often a huge undertaking, requiring you to clean and organize each room.
For that reason, a big spring cleaning job might appear intimidating. However, with a few adjustments, you can transform it into a fun experience. Before you dive in, there are things to know which will make the whole process a lot easier.
Tips for Handling a Big Spring Cleaning Job
As you anticipate warmer weather and longer days, it’s only natural to start thinking about the cleaning job ahead. Here are a few tips to help you handle that big spring cleaning job this year:
Make a Schedule
As you anticipate delving into the cleaning job, take some time to create a plan. Assess everything that needs cleaning and prioritize accordingly. It is best to start with the most tedious or imposing tasks to build momentum and simply get it out of the way so that everything else seems fun. In addition, making a schedule will ensure that you don’t forget any areas.
Decluttering is a great way to start your big spring-cleaning job. It will immediately make you feel like you are making progress and reduce the friction you might experience when moving things around as you clean.
Depending on your home, decluttering can look like the following:
- Clearing bathroom counters
- Clearing dressers, nightstands, and the entryway
- Cleaning out your junk drawer
- Cleaning out your fridge and pantry of food that’s already gone bad
Needless to say, a big spring cleaning job demands large quantities of cleaning agents. Why not skip chemical detergents and instead make your own from household ingredients? They are less harmful to your health. You are also less likely to run out of cleaning supplies while cleaning.
Alternative cleaning options include using a steam cleaner or making a cleaning reagent from white distilled vinegar, water, and baking soda.
Rent a Dumpster
You will inevitably have a lot of waste to throw away as you clean. This might call for multiple trips to your local dump yard, which is not ideal as it consumes a lot of time and labor. The best solution would be to rent a dumpster.
Renting a dumpster will help you get through that big spring cleaning job faster. All you have to do is request one, dump your waste as you clean, and schedule a date for the waste removal company to collect it.
Lastly, Make It Fun!
Spring cleaning doesn’t have to feel like a larger-than-life undertaking. You can transform it into a fun activity that everyone enjoys. Consider creating a fun playlist and blasting it through your stereo as you clean. You can also enlist the help of your favorite family members and friends.
