Spring is here, which means warmer days and longer nights. Spring is the perfect opportunity to give your home a good clean, leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated for the season ahead.
A spring clean can involve a range of tasks, such as swapping the batteries in your smoke detectors, cleaning out your garage, tidying the garden, or organising your clothes and donating the things you no longer wear. The main goal of spring cleaning is to get your home, and more importantly your life, organised!
Here are our 5 simple tips to help get your home spring-ready.
Make your home sparkle
Spring is the opportune time to roll up your sleeves and clean your whole house from top to bottom. Begin with washing all surfaces that may not have been cleaned thoroughly over autumn and winter, like blinds, cupboards, and behind the fridge. Then tackle the more difficult areas like scrubbing the bathroom grout, giving your carpets a steam clean, or cleaning the filters in your air conditioner.
Less is more
Decluttering is an essential component of a good spring clean. Clean out items from your wardrobe, kitchen, medicine cabinet, and your garage. In the wise words of Marie Kondo, ask yourself, ‘does this item spark joy’. A Decluttered home is a lot easier to maintain, and also helps to prevent pests and reduce dust build-up.
Remember, when decluttering to try and correctly dispose of things. Recycle what you can or donate it to charities. You could even hold a garage sale.
Rediscover your green thumb
Nothing says spring more than the scent of a freshly mowed lawn. Now is the perfect time to not only declutter and clean out your home but also your garden. Pull out those pesky weeds, plant some fresh plants and wipe away the dust from your outdoor furniture, ready to entertain your friends and family at your next BBQ.
A quick fix
Whether it’s repainting your walls, or patching up a few holes. If you think there is a part of your home that needs a little bit of love or if there is an unfinished project sitting in your garage, consider spring the sign to finish things off and get everything back in perfect working order.
A change is as good as a holiday
Redecorating doesn’t mean you have to purchase expensive new items. It can be as simple as rearranging furniture. Moving furniture can give a room a whole new dynamic. Likewise, changing the artwork on the walls or even a cushion change can reinvent a space. Be brave and experiment with styles, you might surprise yourself!
Enjoy the warm weather and the scent of spring as you let the fresh air in. By following these simple tips, we guarantee you and your home will feel rejuvenated.
