We all want a clean, healthy home; one that makes our space feel like our sanctuary. As we begin to feel rejuvenated by the warmer weather, spring is a great time to tackle some of the heavier cleaning tasks we do not keep up with on a regular basis. But where do we start and how can we accomplish these tasks successfully?

Here are 10 top tips for tackling your spring cleaning so you can enjoy more fun in the sun:

  1. Plan Ahead: Break down your spring cleaning tasks over several days or weekends to avoid feeling overwhelmed. Create a schedule and prioritize tasks based on urgency and importance.
  2. Set Realistic Goals: Don’t try to clean your entire home in one day. Set achievable goals for each cleaning session to maintain motivation and prevent burnout.
  3. Start Small: Begin with one room or area at a time instead of trying to tackle the entire house at once. Completing smaller tasks will give you a sense of accomplishment and keep you motivated.
  4. Declutter First: Before cleaning, declutter each room by getting rid of items you no longer need or use. This will make cleaning faster and more manageable.
  5. Divide & Conquer: Get your family members or roommates involved in the cleaning process. Assign specific tasks to each person based on their abilities and preferences.
  6. Use Efficient Cleaning Tools: High-quality cleaning tools and environmentally friendly products make the job easier and more efficient. For example, microfiber cloths and dusters can help trap dust and dirt efficiently and effectively. Contrary to popular belief, you do not need much product. A multi-purpose and bathroom cleaner can cover many jobs throughout your home. Just be sure to follow product use directions and test a small area if you are unsure to avoid damaging any surfaces.
  7. Take Breaks: Pace yourself and take regular breaks to rest and recharge. Set a timer for cleaning sessions and take short breaks in between to prevent fatigue.
  8. Stay Organized: Keep cleaning supplies organized and easily accessible to avoid wasting time searching for them. Use caddies or baskets to carry supplies from room to room.
  9. Celebrate Progress: Acknowledge and celebrate your progress as you complete each task or room. Treat yourself to a small reward or break to stay motivated.
  10. Consider Professional Help: If cleaning feels overwhelming, you’d rather be spending your time elsewhere, or have health issues limiting your ability to clean, consider hiring a professional cleaning service to help. They can handle your cleaning to turn your home into your sanctuary while giving you back your time.
