The Ultimate Spring Cleaning Checklist

Bathroom Cleaning Checklist | Helping Hands Cleaning Services

Rising temperatures, budding flowers, and chirping birds are just a few signs of spring. Although it is the start of outside activities, it is also time to give your home a good cleaning so that it feels fresh. By creating a checklist of what needs some attention, you will eliminate the winter dirt and will welcome spring in a spotless manner.

 

1. Welcome Spring in Your Entryway

Most homeowners forget the importance of cleaning their entryways. However, these are the first places that guests see when they visit. It is important to make a good impression.

  • Wipe all doorknobs, walls, and baseboards
  • Clean windows and blinds
  • Replace the doormat
  • Clean the banister
  • Sweep or mop the floor

Oftentimes, people do not know how to mop properly. If you are sick of going to a great deal of hassle without seeing visible results, you should learn the best way to complete this task. One common misconception is that using more soap makes the floor cleaner. However, using too much leaves a sticky and dull residue. Also, you should make sure that your mop is not too wet. This can damage hardwood flooring.

 

2. Cleaning Your Kitchen

Although you probably clean your kitchen on a regular basis, you may ignore a few key places. It is common to wipe down your sink each day, but springtime cleaning must go a little deeper.

  • Clean the refrigerator so that all old food is removed
  • Wipe inside all cabinets and drawers
  • Clean the microwave and oven
  • Clean the toaster
  • Sweep or mop the floor
  • Clean the garbage disposal

Your kitchen is a breeding ground for bacteria. You may not realize the importance of cleaning your microwave. Besides wiping it out occasionally, you should remove stubborn food stains with lemon and vinegar. Also, it should be sanitized with a gentle detergent.

 

3. Bedroom Cleaning

When spring arrives, your bedroom is a place that deserves some deep cleaning. You probably have a lot of winter clothes that can be put away. Also, you may decide to take some of your blankets off the bed. There are many things that you can do to tidy up your bedroom.

  • Wash all bed linens, including blankets and the bedspread
  • Vacuum the mattress
  • Organize the closet
  • Wash the curtains

It is essential to pay attention to your mattress. Seasonal cleaning can prevent pest infestations and allergens from making you sick. After you vacuum your bare mattress, it is advised to deodorize it with baking soda. Also, it is important to flip it. If you have a pillow top mattress, you should rotate the top and bottom.

 

4. Time to Tackle the Bathroom

By far, your bathroom is probably the dirtiest room in your house. Thanks to the soap and moisture that accumulate each day, grime and mold may become a big problem. Springtime cleaning can return your bathroom back into a fresh space.

  • Clean the medicine cabinet
  • Sanitize the sink
  • Clean the mirror
  • Sanitize the shower and tub
  • Sanitize the toilet
  • Organize the linen closet

To achieve a shiny and white appearance on your grout lines, you should apply a mixture of baking soda and water with a toothbrush. You can spray some vinegar on top of this paste. A foam will develop that can easily be scrubbed away to leave a fresh finish. A tip for extra sparkle is to scrub the grout with a whitening toothpaste as well.
