Everything You Need to Know About Spring Cleaning

Some homeowners steadily chip away at spring-cleaning from March until May, while others prefer to haul off winter junk in one fell swoop. The key to effective spring-cleaning is to find a system that works. Whether your spring overhaul involves organized chaos or tightly controlled cleaning, here’s a spring-cleaning checklist to make “out with the old” a little easier.

Spring Home Maintenance

  • Dusting baseboards, rafters, ceiling fans, and fixtures
  • Wash doors and walls
  • Touch up paint
  • Clean air vents
  • Replace HVAC filters, light bulbs, smoke detector batteries
  • Shampoo carpet
  • Reseal windows
  • Clean or re-grout tile
  • Schedule an appointment with pest control

De-Cluttering Your House

Spring de-cluttering serves two purposes: remove old junk from your home and update subpar equipment. Whether you take spring-cleaning one room at a time or wherever the mess looks worst, an organization overhaul of your storage spaces freshens up your home for the warmer months. Organization is the key to spring-cleaning success. Create a pile for keep, donate, and trash. After determining what’s worth keeping and what needs replacing, reorganize your closets and cabinets to prevent junk buildup. Call Mr Junk to haul away trash and donation items.

  • Clean baseboards and ceiling corners
  • Remove scuffmarks from floors, walls, and cabinets
