7 Spring Maintenance Tips

7 Spring Maintenance Tips

The snow has melted, the air is warming, and spring is right around the corner, which mean it’s time for some spring cleaning! So, open the windows, grab an iced tea, and take a moment to read our 7 spring cleaning tips.

1. Declutter – As you awaken from your winter hibernation, it’s time to go through the clutter you accumulated over the course of the cooler months. Buy an under the bed storage from your favorite local store and go through your winter clothing. Donate any items you haven’t worn in over a year and store the rest under your bed until winter comes calling.

2. Dust, dust, dust – Let’s face it, it’s allergy season. Flowers are blooming and the air is full of allergens just waiting to greet you. While you can’t control the outdoor invaders you can take precautionary steps to reduce allergy symptoms inside. Get out your favorite cleaning products and wipe down windowsills, air vents, ceiling fans, and any other place dust is hiding in your home.

3. Wipe down the windows- If you live in a snowy State, chances are your windows have accumulated residue from the snow and ice. Take a moment to wipe down the windows (both inside and out) for a crystal-clear view of the greenery springing to life outside.

4. Clean out that oven! – We love to bake, or should we say, we love to eat cookies. Either way, now is the perfect time to clean out your oven and say goodbye to any lingering winter baking crumbs that have made the bottom of your oven their home. We know, we know, cleaning out your oven isn’t fun, but we know you can do it!

5. New season, new blankets- Wash those winter blankets and store until your next hibernation. We recommend a light quilt for the spring and summer months. They’re lightweight and perfect for those warm nights.

6. Get out the Green – Flowers are a great way to bring brightness into your home. We like placing small potted plants in our kitchens and living rooms but grabbing a bouquet from your local marketplace is also a quick way to give your space a small pop of spring flare.

7. Take a moment to relax– We don’t want to tell you how to live your life, but after all that cleaning, we hope that you take time to enjoy your space and the weather outside, summer will be here before you know it!
