There are two types of people in this world: those who love cleaning and those who don’t. However, cleaning doesn’t have to be a chore! Sometimes, the worst part is actually getting started. The first thing you want to do is throw open your windows wide and let a healthy breeze flow through your house. Your house has been shut up all winter long so it is time to get some freshness into your home.
Then you’ll need to assemble the troops, young and old alike, and assign them some cleaning jobs. The big clean shouldn’t sit on your shoulders alone!
However, spring is typically the time when you do the most tiring of tasks, we say “why wait?” Let’s just dive right in there. Focus on de-cluttering and heavy duty cleaning, paying attention to indoor and outdoor spaces, storage spaces, windows and appliances.
Take it in zones. Starting off the deep cleaning process can be a bit daunting, but if you break the house into zones and focus on only that zone for a day or two, the task will seem much more manageable.
