Spring is a season of renewal and fresh starts. As the weather begins to warm up and flowers begin to bloom, many will begin their seasonal renewal. Spring cleaning allows you to take a moment and reorganize. We know the task can sometimes feel overwhelming. No need to worry, FMHA has your back. We’ve gathered some of our favorite tips for making spring cleaning manageable and, maybe, even fun.
Break down the tasks
The best way to avoid the overwhelming sense of having to clean everything is to break it down into smaller tasks. For example, start with the corner of the kitchen. Once you’ve completed your first goal, you will likely feel less stressed with the amount you have left.
Make a schedule
As you break down the tasks, put them into a formal schedule so you can stay on top of what needs to get done. You can even make a to-do list on your phone for which tasks need to be done and when. Look through this compilation of to-do list apps for mobile to see which can help you the most.
Clean from top to bottom
No one wants to redo the cleaning they’ve already done. By starting the process with your ceiling, you will force any debris down to lower levels you’ll clean later. This way, you only have to clean everything once.
Go green when you clean
Many cleaning products contain chemicals that are harmful to the environment, but with a few simple tricks, you can help the earth and your house. Steam cleaning is the most natural method, but since not everything can be steam cleaned check out these eco-friendly products that will help you spruce up your home without hurting the spruces.
