Spring has FINALLY descended upon us, offering its good graces and we’re so excited! What is it about this season that makes us want to clean? Perhaps its the need to dust off the dreary winter, or just that fresh breeze that puts us in the mood for something new. As they say, out with the old and to the mall we go! If you’re looking to jumpstart your annual spring clean, here are 5 simple tasks that will feel like your home just went through a complete revamp!
Clean That Carpet
Carpets are hothouses for musty odours, dust, random food scraps, stains and everything else you have tracked in with your feet, and can be pretty gross and unhygenic with all that bacteria. Take them for a clean, either professionally or DIY, your carpets will look brand new, and you might find yourself having less sniffles in the early morning and late at night!
Clean Your Appliances
Clean your kitchen vents. Wipe down the washing machine. Scrub the fridge. Dust out the bathroom air vents. Replace those furnace filters! What better way to bring spring in than to actually clear the airways of all the dust, and your appliances with all the stains collected throughout the winter months?
Purge Your Closet
Is there anything more thrilling than getting rid of stuff you don’t need anymore? As the old saying goes “when in doubt, throw it out”. We could not agree more. Time to stop playing packrat and donate everything of limited keepsake value. Old toys, clothes and games need to be cleaned out and replaced. Trust us, the feeling after you get rid of stuff you no longer need, is thrilling and look, now you even can go shopping. Rinse, recycle and repeat, just so long as you don’t forget to purge.
