Spring is here!

It’s spring time! This usually means sunnier days, lighter evenings and weekend barbeques! It’s also an opportunity to throw open the windows, let some fresh air in, and make our home clean, happy and efficient.

Here’s a simple list of spring cleaning chores that will have your place sparkling in no time:

  • dust ceiling corners
  • dust baseboards and clean scuff marks
  • dust/wash light fixtures and lamps
  • dust ceiling fans
  • wash doors and walls
  • touch up paint
  • vacuum or wash window curtains
  • wash window blinds
  • clean windows
  • dust bookcases
  • polish wood furniture
  • wipe down and vacuum furniture (clean the base and under cushions)
  • remove stains from upholstered furniture 
  • condition leather furniture
  • vacuum and wash lampshades
  • deep clean hardwood, tile, linoleum, and carpet flooring
  • shampoo carpet (DIY or schedule a professional)
  • remove rugs to shake out, then vacuum, then clean under them
  • vacuum all flooring, including corners and edges
  • clean air vents
  • dust around mirrors, picture frames, and wall hangings
  • replace batteries in smoke detector
  • schedule termite or pest control maintenance

This checklist is also ideal for investors who are about to let their house or apartment to tenants, and similarly those who are looking to prepare for a spring sale!
