Deep Clean Into Spring!

Spring cleaning can seem overwhelming when you consider everything you need to do. Fortunately, following a few simple tips can help you tackle your project little by little with less stress. Check out our tips and tricks for attacking spring cleaning this year to make your apartment home cleaner than ever!
Make a List for Every Room
Creating a list of tasks to complete for each room can help you remember everything you need to do. Just as importantly, you’ll get a great sense of satisfaction when you check off those boxes! Every room will have different needs for spring cleaning, so make your lists ahead of time and add to them as needed.    
Start with the Big Picture, Then Move to the Smaller Details
Instead of starting with dusting, vacuuming, or sorting, focus on the most time-consuming tasks. When you tackle more intimidating tasks first, you’re bound to feel better about the smaller ones. So, while you’re making the list we mentioned above, be sure to sort your tasks in terms of effort.    
Prioritize Certain Tasks Above Others
We’ve all been there: cleaning takes you longer than you thought and you’re too tired to complete everything on your to-do list. That’s why it pays to prioritize some tasks over others. If you want to organize cupboards or dust behind your bureau, put those last on the list. You should clean visible spaces first to give you jolts of satisfaction and help your space look and feel cleaner even if you can’t complete your list in one day.    
Acquire the Right Tools
Nothing stalls a cleaning project like realizing you don’t have enough supplies to get the job done. Make sure you’re fully stocked with toilet and bathtub cleaner for the bathroom, dusting tools for the nooks and crannies, and any other supplies you might need. Consult your list of what needs to be cleaned and double-check which supplies and sprays you should buy before you start. And if you’re planning to get organized, don’t forget to pick up the items you’ll need for that. Bins and labels are a big help when organizing clothes or sorting your kitchen cabinets. Bonus points if you buy environmentally friendly cleaning supplies and avoid purchasing plastic!    
Don’t Forget the Little Things!
Spring cleaning is the time to clean things you might not take care of the rest of the year. A few examples include vacuuming under your bed, deep cleaning your rugs, sorting your seasonal items, wiping down your refrigerator and throwing out expired items, cleaning the inside of your microwave, washing your windows, and decluttering and donating unwanted items. We hope these tips help you to take care of all your spring cleaning in a way that’s as stress-free as possible!
