It’s the right time of year for giving your home a thorough cleaning from top to bottom. If you have plans to do some spring cleaning soon, use the following tips to prepare for this task.
TACKLE SPRING CLEANING TASKS METHODICALLY
Instead of randomly cleaning whatever you feel like at the moment, start at one side of a room and work your way over to the other side. You can also start at the upper parts of a room and work your way down to the lower levels if that’s easier for you. Doing these tasks methodically helps you keep track of what you’ve cleaned already.
CLEAN IN SMALL CHUNKS OF TIME
Plan on setting aside smaller amounts of time for spring cleaning tasks instead of trying to clean everything in a day or two. Make a schedule that shows when you’ll be cleaning and which part of your home you’ll be cleaning each day. Doing cleaning in smaller chunks of time makes this project seem more manageable.
BUY ALL SUPPLIES BEFOREHAND
Make a list of supplies you’ll need, then head to the store to stock up on them ahead of time. When you wait until the last minute to do so, it’s easier to make excuses for not cleaning, such as not having the right supplies. Having the supplies you need and in the amounts you need means you won’t have to interrupt your cleaning to go shopping.
When you’re getting ready for spring cleaning, choose an outfit that is comfortable. Make sure that this outfit is one that you’re fine with getting dirty. Wearing comfortable clothes helps make cleaning more enjoyable.
DON’T GET DISTRACTED
Before cleaning, put your phone, tablet and laptop away, so they won’t distract you. Having these devices around can make you feel tempted to stop cleaning for just a moment to check email or do other tasks. This can easily turn into a big waste of time that stops you from getting your cleaning done.
