- 16 time-saving tips from organizemyhouse.com– We love this article. It gets right to the point and prescribes meaningful advice about preparing for a spring house cleaning. For example, a true spring cleaning must start by decluttering things and tidying up. Indeed, the house has to be cleaned before it is cleaned! The author also recommends having a game plan to tackle the house cleaning. If the house needs a lot of work then it may not be possible to get it all done in one day. To do it properly you have to document a plan of attack!
- Organize your closets from housebeautiful.com – The author has an interesting recommendation – you must clean out your closets before touching the rest of the house. This could be a great way to start a spring cleaning but also to get organized.
- Have the proper equipment & supplies – This post recommends having the right supplies and equipment. We couldn’t agree more. Without the basic disinfectants, cleansers, mops, and rags, you really will not accomplish much. We also suggest getting decent-quality chemicals as the super-cheap stuff never works. Costco always has great deals on cleaning supplies.
- Teamwork – This article discusses spring cleaning for Passover, but really the suggestions are helpful for any deep cleaning. In fact, we have many customers call us to set up a deep house cleaning and carpet cleaning in advance of important religious holidays and events. The author talks about teamwork and how it is important to get the whole family involved, especially the kids. Cleaning jobs should of course be age appropriate and rewards should be mixed in to the whole project. Moreover the author also suggests making it fun – perhaps put on some music while people are working.
