We all want to get a jump on spring cleaning, maybe because we’re so ready to welcome in the warmer weather and change of season. Warmth getting closer is exciting and it may be a good time to start preparing for the end of winter. Get a cup of cocoa and put on some music as you say goodbye to winter and bring in the nicer weather.
A focus on just a few areas will have you falling in love with your space again.
What needs to go into storage because it isn’t needed right now? Put away winter holiday decorations, winter clothes, sleds, shovels, and those winter items. Remember, this lends itself to natural sorting and throwing away. If items are damaged, consider fixing them or trashing them.
Take this time to determine what you want to dig back out next year and what you’d like to replace and you already have a head start on next winter!
Whether you sealed windows and doors for the winter or not, as you begin to open curtains and panes again, you will want fresh, clean spaces. Wipe down window sills and tracks and clean the glass. It may not be time to clean the outside, but getting them nice inside will have you letting in the bright sunlight as soon as it starts coming around.
While you are cleaning glass, look for other glass surfaces that could use a cleaning, such as mirrors, appliances or cabinets, and curios. While you’ve got the glass cleaner out, you might as well get the job done!
Your patio or porch was most likely closed for the season and now may be the time to bring furniture back into the space. Does the deck need any repairs or maintenance such as sealing or painting?
Sweep the patio and check for pests now who are likely dormant still from the cold. Brush away cobwebs, wasp nests, and debris.
After the harsh, messy winter months, floors often need some extra care. Sweep, vacuum, mop, and consider a deep clean from a professional cleaning company. Whether carpet or hard surfaces, a deep clean will get up that hidden dirt and grime.
If there are clothes or items you haven’t used in a year, it may be time to donate them to someone who can put them to use. Because the change in season and temperature is upon us, it’s time to switch out the wardrobe, making closets a great area to tackle now.
Organizing your closet can have a big impact on how you feel, so why not start feeling better now?
