There is a natural urge for us to refresh our living space ever so often. Whether this is a deep clean, a large clear out or a complete fresh start with a renovation, we want to explore the benefits of this and offer tips to help revamp your space! A clear out is more than just a hoover and a dust, it can create a cleaning space that gives you a clearer mind.

It’s an opportunity to create a healthier and more organised environment for you and your family. Dust can collect on your house so it is important to remove these irritants to improve air quality in your house. Additionally, it is proven that a clean and organised space has a positive impact on mental health – reducing stress, and improving your overall mood and productivity. A spring clean can introduce to you new beginnings, allowing you to let go of the old and make room for the new.

Regular cleaning and maintenance can increase the lifespan of your furniture and household items, which saves you money in the long run and reduces the amount of waste you may send to landfill, making you more environmentally conscious. A spring clean can also help with sustainability as a clean and organised home is more energy efficient. Less dust and dirt on appliances allows them to operate more efficiently!

Our expert tips!

  1. Before you get started, begin with making a plan. List what you want to change or achieve during this spring clean and put them in priority order. This will allow you to stay focused on what is most important for you.
  2. Go through your belongings and begin with a declutter – decide what to keep, donate or dispose of. During this process, it might be helpful to hire a small skip to help with this disposal and make it as swift and efficient as possible.
  3. Make sure to get all the cleaning supplies you need for this process. Do keep in mind you don’t need to go out of your way to get fancy cleaning products for different tasks, products are often multi-use, looking into this might save you money and packaging waste or consider using eco-friendly cleaning products to minimise your impact on the environment.
  4. Clean room by room to avoid getting overwhelmed at the job. We recommend starting at ceilings and light fixtures and moving your way down to floors last.
  5. People often overlook the hidden areas such as behind large furniture, inside drawers and even skirting boards, these are key in making it feel like a spring clean over a regular clean and can make a significant difference to a room.
  6. Don’t forget your fabrics and upholstery; washing or airing curtains, rugs and upholstery can really be a game changer!
  7. Invest in storage such as baskets, storage boxes to keep your fresh space to stay organised so it is less of a task in the future.
  8. Kitchens and bathrooms often need a little bit more love and attention. Ensure to spend more time scrubbing and disinfecting these areas.
  9. Once your spring cleaning is complete, commit to maintaining your refreshed space. Regular cleaning routines, such as daily tidying and weekly cleaning tasks, can help you enjoy a clean and organised home year-round.

Spring cleaning is a chance to give new life to your old living spaces. It’s not just about cleanliness; it’s about creating an environment that makes you happier and reduces steen. So, gather your cleaning supplies, make a plan, and happy cleaning!
