When most people hear the words ‘spring cleaning’, they immediately formulate a list of about 15-20 excuses they can use to avoid the seemingly daunting tasks.
Spring cleaning is a way to demonstrate pride in ownership (or rentership). A home and its contents are investments; money spent on something you really love or really need (ideally both). When you take the time to clean thoroughly and properly, you can maintain and prolong the life of the item or finish for years. Further, it means you live in a cleaner and healthier home; less dust, dust mites, allergens, odours and dirt.
This post has been designed to go through a house, room by room, and explain key spring cleaning tasks that need doing, in checklist format. There are some ‘repeated’ tasks in each space, however to keep the structure of the post consistent we have placed them in each area so that a task is never forgotten.
Keep scrolling, we’ve created a special spring cleaning page for each room, along with an inspirational Songza playlist for your cleaning pleasure.
You can also print off each room’s checklist with the handy room-by-room printables!
