Spring is in the air, the sun is out, the warm breeze is blowing, and it is blowing the winter dust all over your apartment! No matter the size of your home, from a bachelor suite to a 3 bedroom penthouse, we can all benefit from a little Spring cleaning.
Spring cleaning does not have to be done in one day. Come up with a task list and knock them off one at a time over a few weeks. This can make spring cleaning less daunting and just maybe a bit fun.
- • Read the labels on your cleaner. Make sure they are safe and being used on the surface they are meant for.
- • Use harsh chemicals, such as bleach, sparingly. Ensure there is good ventilation when using these types of chemicals. Keep in mind that it can also be dangerous to flush some chemicals down the toilet, always read the labels.
- • Avoid cross contamination with sponges and cleaning cloths. You would not want to clean a kitchen counter with the cloth you just cleaned the washroom with.
- • Save your floors for the last chore of the day. As you are cleaning dust, debris and dirt inevitably land on the floor. Instead of sweeping/vacuuming multiple times a day, one larger one at the end is more efficient.
If you find spring cleaning daunting, then pick one room and start there. Bring all the supplies you may need with you into that room. Have your cleaners, vacuum, broom, mop and whatever else you need at the ready to get the job done. Spring cleaning
may seem like a chore but turn up the music or put on your favourite podcast and have a little fun.
No matter how you do spring cleaning, open the windows and enjoy the warmer weather.
