Have you decided to get your spring cleaning done early? Maybe you've noticed that things are looking a little bit dingy and that it's time to spruce your house up after the winter holidays. If that's the case, from setting up a cleaning plan to having your carpets and upholstery professionally cleaned, here are some ideas that might help.
Start With A Plan - It might be a good idea to go from room to room to see what actually needs to be done. For example, you might get to your bedroom and realize that it's already looking fine. However, when you get to your kitchen, the living room, and the family room, you might discover that some deep cleaning has to be done. You get the point.
As you make your assessment, think about writing down everything that needs to be done. For instance, you might write down that the baseboards need extra attention or that the living room curtains need to be washed. As each job is accomplished, check it off your list. Consider making a permanent checklist so that you can use it from week to week. Pay attention to details. For example, under Kitchen, write things like Clean out the refrigerator, Shine Appliances and Clean the Stove and Oven.
Call On Professionals - Part of your assessment might result in the realization that you need carpet and upholstery cleaning performed by professionals. Perhaps you've tried to do the job yourself in the past, only to find out that you didn't actually deep clean the fabrics. By calling on professionals, you'll know that you are hiring people who have the training and the experience to make your carpets and your furniture upholstery look like new. Don't worry about your carpets and upholstery being damaged by harsh chemicals. The cleaners will use exactly the right products to make sure that delicate fabrics are safe. Even spots that you thought were permanently stained will more than likely be eliminated.
After you've completed cleaning your house thoroughly, consider maintaining the great look you have established by setting up a cleaning schedule. For example, think about using Mondays to do laundry, Tuesdays to clean bathrooms, Wednesdays to dust all of your furniture, Thursdays to thoroughly clean your kitchen, and so on. Reserve Fridays to make sure that the house is totally ready for the weekend. And, don't forget to ask your family members to help you.
