It happens every year, those tell tale signs that Spring is coming; the warmer temperatures creeping in, the emergence of hibernating animals, the appearance of Spring flowers such as daffodils and cherry blossom. Then you realise, it is time to get your house ready.
Ensuring your home is ready for Spring is a very important act, especially for allergy sufferers. It eliminates the dust and cobwebs as well as letting more light into your property and making room for warmer temperatures. Undoubtedly, the best place to start is by making a schedule. Having a plan of what needs doing in each room will help to keep you on track and focused on the task at hand.
Let’s split your spring clean into 5 easy categories.
- Out with the old, in with the new.
There has never been a better time to de-clutter your property and bring organisation into your home. Not only does clutter gather dust, it can also increase your stress levels. Tidying and organising your home will have a positive psychological influence on your overall life – as well as improving the appearance of your house.
- Deep clean your property, especially the kitchen and bathrooms.
Completing a comprehensive clean of the inside of your property will instantly improve your mood and make you want to welcome visitors. When we say a comprehensive clean, we mean a comprehensive clean. Take some extra time to focus on the kitchen and bathrooms; scrub the walls and tiles, deep clean the grill and oven and make your sink, bathtub and shower sparkle.
This task can seem like hard work and very time consuming. To save time and effort, call in reputable cleaning professionals in your local area. For example, if you’re from Morristown, call in the Morristown cleaning company that has the best reviews online.It always pays to choose a local company as you’ll always have someone to go back to should you not be 100% satisfied with the job,
- Check your air-conditioning is in optimal condition.
As soon as the warmer temperatures are upon us and the sun is shining into your property you will be reaching for the air-conditioning remote. Ensuring that the system is in optimal condition before Spring comes is something you will be thanking yourself for later.
- Bring lighter fabrics and colours into your life.
Remove the dark shades of winter and let some light into your property. Change your bedding, blankets, cushions and curtains – to name a few – and say goodbye to the warmth hugging dark colours. Ensure your decor is ready for Spring by introducing lighter colours and some floral prints.
- Don’t forget the exterior of your property!
Getting the exterior of your property ready for spring is just as important as the interior. Check your roof for leaks before the spring showers fall, clean your drain pipes and gutters and dust off your outdoor furniture. Once the warm temperatures arrive, you will be spending a great deal of time outdoors so ensuring it is suitably prepared and looking aesthetically pleasing is essential.
- Are You Ready?
Now you know what you need to do, start making your schedule! Spring will come around sooner than you think.
