Spring is in the air! Temperatures are rising, days are getting longer, birds are singing their songs, and homeowners throughout the area are getting their spring cleaning to-do lists in order.

Spring Cleaning Checklist For Your Home - Nashville TN - Mobile AtticShampoo Your Carpets

It’s a good rule of thumb to shampoo your carpets once every year, so get your shampooer out of the closet (or rent one) and give your rugs and carpet the deep cleaning they need to stay looking great for the long haul. Or, if you lack the time or energy to do it yourself, hire a company to do it for you! Trust us – this is one task that is well worth every penny spent.

This is especially necessary for households with kids or pets. Hair, dirt, dust, and more is much more likely to get into the fibers of your carpet when little ones and animals keep running over it, and it wears it down much quicker. You’ll be amazed at the difference a thorough shampooing will make!

To top it off, cleaner carpets reduce the risk of getting sick or triggering allergies in those prone to experience them. All in all, a well worthwhile investment, indeed.

Wash All The Windows

Spring is also a great time to wash every window in the house. This can be a big job to take on, but once it’s done, you’ll find your home’s ambiance is much more enjoyable. Cleaner windows allow more light to enter your home, and they actually keep the window stronger and less prone to experience scratches and etching, too.

All in all, your home’s value will stay high, and your curb appeal won’t suffer for it, either. So, what are you waiting for? Grab your glass cleaner and get this process started!

Dust Everything

You probably already dust your shelves and dressers on a regular basis, but what about your ceiling fan? Your blinds? Your light shades? There are many things around your home that probably don’t get addressed as often as they should, and we’d dare to bet that there’s a layer of dust that needs to be cleaned off. Be sure to dust all of your decorative items, books, and knick-knacks, too!

Wipe Down Your Walls

Your walls are another part of your home that get surprisingly dirty. Take some time to wipe them down and get rid of the dust, fingerprints, and smudges that have likely accumulated. Again, this is a task that makes a surprising difference in how fresh and clean your home looks and feels.

Clean & Organize Drawers & Cabinets

When life gets busy, it can be easy to throw random odds and ends (batteries, old mail, receipts, etc.) into random drawers or cabinets. If this sounds all too familiar, take an afternoon to sort through it all! Try to come up with a different organizational system for bills and important papers, and then throw away anything you no longer need. You’ll feel so much better for it in the end, and you’ll be really happy you did it when you’re looking for that one specific thing you know is stashed somewhere in your home.

Deep Clean Your Refrigerator

How’s your refrigerator looking these days? It’s not uncommon for food and drinks to spill on the shelves, and you may even have some old leftovers or expired products hiding out in there. Sound about right? Then, a deep clean is in order. Throw away anything past the sell by date or no longer edible, then take the shelves out one by one and give them a good scrub.

This process will ensure everything stays as sanitary and organized as possible, and it may even inspire you to get a meal plan in order or try out some new recipes! Don’t put it off – get cleaning today!

Clear Out Your Closets

Switching to your spring and summer wardrobe? While you’re at it, why not go through your closet and clear out the clothing you never wear anymore? You could either donate it or even try to sell it for some extra cash. Once you get your clothing sorted out and organized, it’s time to move onto other storage spaces. Spring is a great time to get rid of everything you no longer need or use and reorganize all the stuff you still want to keep.
