Cleaning Your Home Effectively in the Spring There are many things that you should keep in mind as you begin your spring cleaning. These things will help the task become smaller, easier, and much faster. As the sun comes out you may feel the urge to remove all of the cobwebs and clutter that have built up throughout the winter. A clean home seems to reflect and welcome the sun into your home. Having the Right Mindset for Spring Cleaning Spring cleaning is a task that many housekeepers participate in every year. Some view this task with dread because it may seem overwhelming while others are simply excited about the chance they have to make their home feel fresh and new. Others simply look forward to getting it done because it means that they will be able to redecorate and have room for other craft projects. No matter how you approach spring cleaning though, it can be quite a large task. Fortunately, there are several things that you can keep in mind which will help this large task go much faster and easier. The first thing you will want to do when it comes to spring cleaning is create a plan. Decide exactly which room you will tackle first and how you will move around the home until everything has been sorted, cleaned, and organized. As you create a plan, it is a good idea to create a timeline that will go along with it. When you attach the timeline to your spring cleaning, you will want to make sure that you set reasonable goals. If it helps, you may want to write down your plan and timeline so that you can remember what you determined to do. As you try to set reasonable timeline goals, you will want to make sure that you include time for distractions, particularly if you have children. If you do not factor in enough time for distractions, you may become discouraged because you will keep falling behind on your plan. Spring cleaning should stay fun and refreshing instead of frustrating and discouraging. Creating a plan that is actually do-able is critical to your personal enjoyment of this task. Getting the Right Cleaning Supplies The second thing you will want to do is make sure that you have all of the appropriate cleaning supplies on hand so that you do not have to run to the store too often to get what you need every few hours. In addition, you will want to make sure that you have enough of each option. The third thing you will want to do is involve your children in the task. Not only could you use the help, but this is a great opportunity to teach them how to be clean. In general, children like to feel like they are useful. In addition, when they are engaged helping you, they cannot pull things apart behind you. This will be very important if you are going to be successful in avoiding frustration. You can also send your kids to a friend’s house or have them take a nap while you clean. Another important thing to keep in mind in order to avoid frustration is that you should work on one area at a time. If you try to work on the whole house at once, you will feel very little reward for a day of hard work until the end of the week when you complete the task. However, you can feel a sense of accomplishment along the way if you finish one room and then move to the next. The fifth thing you will want to keep in mind is that you should put things away before you clean. Cleaning Your Carpets Finally, you want to make sure that you take the time that you need to understand how you are going to have your carpets cleaned. Make sure that you get them professionally cleaned while you are going about your spring cleaning. There are a lot of people that think that they will be able to clean their carpets on their own.
