How to Spring Clean Like an Expert

Winter is almost over—so now’s the time to start prepping for your big spring clean. But how do you give your house the thorough spring clean it deserves? By doing it the Expert way, of course!

Make a List

When planning a spring clean, our cleaning experts recommend making a list of jobs. Because a spring clean is more thorough than a regular maintenance clean, it’s easy to forget the lesser-visited (but still essential!) tasks. To construct your list, walk from room to room, jotting down areas that need attention. For extra organisation—categorise your list by room to make things easier later on.

Start with Whole-House Cleaning Jobs

Now, start by addressing the jobs that apply to your whole house. You’ll want to dust skirting boards, vent covers, and the tops of fan blades. Vacuum curtains, wipe down blinds, clean windowsills, and wipe down high-touch surfaces like doorknobs. Our Experts also recommend taking the time to shampoo your carpet. Freshly shampooed carpet will make your house smell amazing and will keep the dust and debris in check—no more sniffles and sneezing.

Get Specific

Now that the more general jobs are done, move on to your room-by-room list. If you find yourself easily overwhelmed, start with the rooms that need the most attention—like the kitchen or the bathroom. This way you’ll have less work to do when you’re feeling burnt out.

Here are a few specific cleaning jobs our Experts recommend tackling for your spring clean:

  • Clean the outside of your small appliances (kettle, toaster)
  • Clean the inside of your fridge
  • Remove the items from your pantry and clean the shelves
  • Empty the crumb tray in your toaster
  • Clean the inside of your microwave and oven
  • Soak your gas stove grates
  • Check the expiry of old medicines and discard where needed
  • Clean behind the toilet
  • Scrub the grout in your bathroom
  • Soak your showerhead
  • Clean behind the washer and dryer
  • Flip or rotate your mattress
  • Consider replacing pillows

De-Clutter as You Go

While you’re refreshing your home for spring, now is a great time to declutter and get rid of any unessential items. As you move from room to room, cast your eye over your belongings. Is there anything you no longer need or use? Is there anything broken or beyond repair? Our Experts suggest bringing two large garbage bags along with you while you clean. One will be a donation bag, for like-new items. The other will be for any items that are in disrepair. Fill the bags with unwanted clutter as you go, and by the end of your spring clean, your house will have a new lease on life!
