Tips for Spring Cleaning in and Outside the Home

Share:

Start your spring cleaning projects now to get ready for summer fun.

 
With increased daylight and warmer temperatures, you might feel inspired to improve your living space with a spring cleaning project. By the time summer arrives, your home will be immaculate and ready for entertaining and fun with your family. 
 
Restock Your Cleaning Supplies
 
Before you start your spring projects, you may need to replace your cleaning supplies. New sponges and brushes will make your deep-cleaning sessions more efficient. If you don't like the selection of cleaning supplies at your local grocery store, a trip to the hardware store can help you find more options.
 
Closet Organization
 
With winter fading away, you can move your winter clothes into storage. Buy a collection of plastic bins to help you organize your gloves, hats and scarves. Clear a space for these bins for easy access in the fall, such as under your bed. You can also get more hardware to help you better organize your spring and summer clothes. Wall hooks, for example, are great for hanging jewelry and hats.
 
Repairing Your Entryways
 
After a long and cold winter, it's a good idea to check on the condition of your home's entry points. Take a stroll around your home to look for gaps around your windows and doors, which lead to higher heating and cooling bills. You can use a caulk gun to quickly fill these gaps and seal your home. 
 
Prepare Your Outdoor Living Space
 
If you have a patio or deck, you'll need to do some work before you can start entertaining friends on a warm evening. Check your old patio furniture for any damage caused by the winter. If your chairs and table are dirty, try washing them off with your hose before you use any chemical cleaners. If your furniture is looking worn and dated, it may be time to upgrade with some new pieces.
