5-Spring-Cleaning-TipsBanne_20181004-151414_1

Being cooped up all winter can put a damper on your motivation, especially when it comes to cleaning. Now that spring has sprung, it's time to refresh! Having a clean home does more than just make you happy. It can lower stress levels, reduce allergies and asthma, lessen the spread of germs, and keep pests away. So, what are you waiting for? Bust out those cleaning supplies and get going! Check out these five spring cleaning tips that are sure to make your home the cleanest on the block:


1. Before you start scrubbing, make sure you declutter the area. By not having to move objects out of your way, you'll be able to save time and get a more thorough clean.


2. Your floors are bombarded continuously with dirt, grime, and whatever else has been on the bottom of your shoes, so it's important to give your floor a good clean, no matter what type you may have. First, sweep or vacuum loose dirt particles. For ceramic-tile, use a micro-fiber mop and warm water. You can also check out these tips for cleaning wood floors.


3. Remove grease and dirt build-up on your cabinets by wiping them down with your cabinet cleaner of choice.


4. Spot clean your painted walls with a cloth or sponge. If the stains are still there, try mixing a small amount of dish soap into the water.


5. Clean out your heating ducts and air conditioning vents with a soft brush to prevent dust particles from blowing through your home.


Some situations, however, call for more extensive cleaning. Cleaning up after your home has been damaged by a fire or flood is a whole different story.
