Spring is here, the nights are getting longer and the days are getting warmer- what a perfect time for your house to feel as fresh as the air is! A whole house spring clean can feel pretty daunting so we advise you to take it room by room. At the end of it, you will have a sparkling clean home in time for Easter!
Reasons to Spring clean
A clean home can instantly lift your mood and make you feel good. Also, a sense of achievement after completing a task is bound to put a smile on your face. Not only that, but completing a task will trigger the release of dopamine in your brain giving you a feeling of pleasure.
Breathe a sigh of relief knowing that when you step through your front door you are entering a clean and fresh space. It will look good, smell good and feel like home.
Aesthetic Appeal when selling
Not only will it look good to you, but if you’re thinking of selling it is important for your home to feel fresh and look good to potential buyers. They have to picture themselves living there, which is so much easier in an aesthetically pleasing house, clean and free of clutter.
Ultimate Spring cleaning Tips
Bathroom: It’s always the worst so start with it first! That’s our best advice. Clean all surfaces including the toilet, sink and shower. Use grout cleaner to remove any mold and get rid of dust and germs. Once the room is clean, light candles and open window to allow air flow and get rid of any odors.
Windows: Clean windows with glass cleaner and a microfiber cloth to make a sparkling clean view through it. Also make sure you open the curtains fully to let natural light in and brighten the room.
Countertops: Make sure all countertops are free of clutter and wipe down with a surface cleaner and cloth. Decluttering is especially important if you are thinking of selling, as mess can put potential buyers off.
Wardrobe: We are all guilty of having too many clothes we never wear. Go through and have a clear out of unwanted clothes and leave your wardrobe with more space and less clutter. Give your unwanted clothes to charity so you know your Spring cleaning is helping those in need.
Furniture: Furniture can often be overlooked when cleaning. Make sure you pull out items such as the sofa so you can clean behind it. Then clean both sides of the cushions and spray with a fabric spray to give a fresh smell. Additionally, when cleaning you could try rearranging your furniture to make a change and create good Feng Shui.
Patio Furniture: As the days are getting longer and the weather is getting warmer outdoor furniture will be used more. Wipe down any table surfaces and then hose down your furniture and leave it to air dry. This will have your outdoor furniture looking fresh and new again.
