Tuesday, March 20, 2012, marks the official start to Spring. For centuries, we’ve celebrated the Spring Equinox as we begin the transition from winter’s cold messes into a warmer, more active season. The deep cleaning activities that we do to make our homes healthy is always a big task. In order to make the process smoother, make a list of what you want to accomplish with your cleaning efforts. Then prioritize that list.
When making that list go room by room listing the things you’d like to do in that room. Then group the tasks together. If you want to dust ceiling fans, do all the fans at one time so you’re not continually getting out the same tools and solutions. Then think about the tasks outside and make lists including what needs to be purchased.
Some activities are safely and easily completed by family members, other activities are best left to the professionals. When contacting a professional the Better Business Bureau is always a good place to start. With carpet, upholstery, and tile being such big investments for the home owner, the professional is always the best route for these cleanings.
The smell of a freshly cleaned house represents the begining of the transition from winter to spring. From the floor up, having a fresh feeling and fresh smelling home is confirmation that your house is ready for the new season.
