Figure Out A Routine
We cover a lot of crafting on this site, and, a big part of successful crafting projects is having a plan. The same can be said when you’re cleaning your home. If you don’t have some sort of routine planned out, then it’s going to be much harder for you. Before you start cleaning, make a note of what you want to do, and in what order. For me, I like to split everything up into rooms. I focus on cleaning one room, and then move onto the next one, taking it all as it comes. I find this helps make the task seem a lot smaller than what it is. Cleaning a home seems pretty daunting, and you can feel as though it’s almost impossible when you think about it. But, think about it as cleaning each room one by one and it will seem more achievable. Then, you have your plan, and you’re ready to give your house a proper spring clean.
Don’t Neglect The Drains
Most people will neglect their drains and never clean them. This may not seem like an issue, but trust me, bad things can happen. Uncleaned sewer drains can quickly become clogged and blocked up. So, it’s important that you clean them regularly and watch out for any blockages at all times. I know that cleaning your drains can seem like a horrible task. But, a lot of the time it’s easy and can be done within seconds. For your sinks, you just need to pour some drain cleaner down the plugholes, and you’re done, simple! Sewer drain cleaning needs to be done, or you’ll end up with a nasty smell when they become clogged. It’s probably the worst cleaning job out there, but arguably the most important out of all your household tasks.
Clean Outside Too
I’m very proud of my home, and I like it to look great all year round. In my eyes, your home is more than just the rooms on the inside. It extends to your front garden, driveway, etc. Cleaning the outside of your house is just as important as cleaning the inside. So, make sure you don’t forget about it when you’re doing the spring cleaning. You will be amazed at how much of a difference this makes to the aesthetic appeal. A clean exterior and driveway will be a massive improvement compared to how it previously looked.
Why spend loads of money on home improvements when all your home needs is a proper clean? I can guarantee you’ll feel like you’ve moved into an entirely new place once you’ve finished. There will be more space, and everything will feel fresh.
