With all the snow that Mother Nature brought the Atlanta area this winter I think it’s safe to say that we’re all ready for spring.  Well, lucky for us, spring begins on Sunday!  For some, spring is like a new start.  Spring cleaning is a way to get your home clean and in order for the fun seasons of spring and summer to come. 

Here is a checklist for spring cleaning your home:

  • Wipe down walls and base boards
  • Dust any cobwebs out of corners and hard to reach places that you may have missed in your regular cleaning routine
  • Reseal grout in walls, floors, countertops, bathtubs or showers
  • Vacuum and shampoo rugs
  • Dust shelves and anything on them
  • Clean upholstered items including underneath cushions
  • Polish metal hardware
  • Clean windows
  • Schedule any maintenance that needs to be done on your home such as lawn care, plumbing, or pest control
  • Wax wooden furniture
  • Change batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors
  • Check fire extinguishers
  • Wash window screens
  • Wash window treatments
  • Mop or wax floors
  • Clean out refrigerator.  Not only throw out any outdated food but wipe down shelving as well
  • Rotate or turn mattresses
  • Wash pillows and sheets
  • Discard any expired products including food items, cleaning products, cosmetics and beauty products
  • Update first aid kit
  • Pack up winter clothing and bring out spring/summer wear
  • Donate any apparel that you will no longer wear
  • Donate any old toys or books that are no longer used
  • Wash off decks, patios, driveways, and sidewalks
  • Wash outdoor furniture

And last but not least:

  • When it’s all said and done…relax and enjoy all of your hard work in the wonderful spring weather
