Even if you are a generally clean and neat person, it’s a good idea to do an especially thorough annual cleaning. Generally, people have called this “spring cleaning,” and they associated it with the end of winter and the beginning of the spring season. That’s probably because this is a great time to open up all of your windows and let in fresh air while you clean, as well as the fact that the spring is typically associated with the start of new life. Take a weekend soon and give your home the spring cleaning that it needs and deserves.
Let in Fresh Air
As soon as it is warm enough, open up all of your windows during the daytime and let your home literally air out. This will help to clean out any lingering odors and reduce the likelihood of mildew as well as letting out indoor air impurities. Then, make sure that your heating and cooling systems are in good shape to face the new season. If you need a repair, get it now. For example, if you need Greensboro heating and air, look for a company like Chrismon HVAC to get it taken care of quickly.
Get Rid of Old Clutter
Now is the time to clean out all of your space and get rid of all of the things that you have collected over the winter. Give away anything that you do no use anymore, such as old toys, musical instruments, or exercise equipment that you thought you would use but never did. Hold a garage sale if you want to sell some of your items or give them freely to neighborhood groups or charities.
Clean Out the House and Yard
Give your whole house a thorough cleaning, including all of the places that you usually don’t think about. Go through your closets and organize items that you choose to keep. Also, you need to clean out debris that accumulated in your yard over the winter and make sure that your trees are in good, healthy shape.
