Make a Plan
Spring-cleaning can be very challenging regardless of the size of your space. Actually, it’s more than doing your usual dusting, vacuuming as well as mopping and scrubbing routine. In case you’ve never done it, you might not even know where to start because it’s a big undertaking, it is necessary that you make a plan.
When planning, list down all the rooms including closets, garage and utility room. Again, you should list all the objects that you don’t clean on a regular basis because this is the time to make them clean.
Allocate enough timeto each task
Don’t try to do it first but instead, do it right. When you’re through with drawing up your list of tasks, it’s now time to allocate time for each task. First, try breaking down each task into smaller manageable chunks. Remember that you don’t have to finish house cleaning within a day.
Try to estimate how long it will take you to finish each particular task and figure out how to include them in your daily routine. When estimating the time, it will take you, be sure to build in breaks so that you overwork yourself and burn out.
Get all the supplies you need
Get ready by stocking up on all the suppliers beforehand to avoid running out of anything in the middle of your cleaning. Spring cleaning is not something you’ll have fun doing and if you’ll have to stop in the middle and run to the store because you’ve run out of cleaning supplies, it might demoralize you to an extent that you might not be able to continue or if you manage to go on, you might not do a perfect job.
Declutter and organize
Before you start cleaning, you need to declutter and organize. Just set up three different boxes or hire a skip bin to help you do that. Identify the items you don’t need and put them in the bin or donate or even sell them off. With all the items you need remember to label the box and keep it aside. In that way, you won’t waste your time cleaning what is no longer useful to you.
Ask for help
Now that you have a good plan, enough supplies and you’ve budgeted your time well, you might realize that the work is just too much for you to do alone. Well, this is the time to ask for help from members of your household. On the other hand, you can hire a house cleaner to help you do the job if you can afford it.
