5 Spring Cleaning Tips for Homeowners

The busiest areas of your home often need to the most attention on your spring cleaning checklist. You should even plan to dedicate an entire day to deep cleaning rooms like your kitchen, bathrooms, and living rooms. However, other areas are just as important. You spend a ton of hours in the bedroom areas, so why not make sure they are meticulously clean? It’s also important to add exterior areas of your home to your to-do list.

  1. Create a Pristine Kitchen
  • Wipe down counters and cabinet doors, and clean any windows or glass surfaces
  • Slide-out the fridge and range and wipe down the fronts, sides, and backs of each; use the opportunity to clean the floor under them as well
  • Clean the inside of the refrigerator, wipe all shelves, and clean out the drawers
  • Discard outdated spices, condiments, and canned goods
  • Clean any counter and backsplash grout and caulk lines
  • Dust light fixtures, range hoods, and tops of cabinets
  • Vacuum and mop flooring
  • Run a deep clean cycle on your oven
  • Run an automatic cleaning tab in the dishwasher and coffee maker
  • Thoroughly wipe down the interior and exterior of the microwave
  1. Tidy Up the Living Room
  • Clean any curtains according to the manufacturing instructions
  • Vacuum the front and sides of upholstered furniture; remove cushions and vacuum under them; tackle any stubborn stains with a foam upholstery cleaner
  • Declutter shelves and condense storage; if you come across old photo albums or VHS home movies, send them off to iMemories for digitizing and lifelong preservation and save tons of space
  • Look through DVDs and Blu-rays and donate any unwanted titles to a nursing home or local library
  • Deodorize by sprinkling baking soda on carpets and rugs. Let it sit for a few hours then thoroughly vacuum
  • Clean windows with glass cleaner, dusting sills and frames. If you have double-hung windows that tilt in, carefully clean the exterior surface as well
  1. Refresh Your Bathrooms
  • Wipe down counters with multi-purpose spray and polish mirrors with glass cleaner
  • Clean toilets and surrounding areas thoroughly with toilet bowl cleaner and disinfectant spray
  • Declutter storage and discard outdated or unwanted toiletry items, and donate those unopened hotel toiletries you’ve accumulated over the years
  • Launder towels and fabric shower curtains
  • Use a snake to remove debris from the sinks, shower, and bathtub drains
  • Thoroughly clean faucets and showerheads with vinegar and a cleaning brush or toothbrush
  • Clean shower and bathtub surfaces, paying special attention to grout and caulk
  1. Deep Clean Your Bedrooms
  • Declutter closets, dressers, and nightstands; donate unwanted items to a local homeless shelter or Goodwill
  • Move the bed to thoroughly vacuum or mop under it and flip the mattress if your model allows
