Posted by Liane Christianson on Mar 27, 2014 2:14:00 PM

Honestly NO, Spring House Cleaning is NOT necessary, will enjoy your home much more if you clean it well every spring.  Here are a list of the items you might want to think about cleaning or hiring someone to clean for you.  These items are over and above your regular maintenance cleaning you do yourself or pay to have it done.

    1. Windows (in and out) and window sills - You will be amazed how much more light will stream through clean windows to light up your home when your windows are clean.  We need all the light we can get here in the NW.
    2. Clean out the inside of the refrigerator- pull out and clean under if movable and vacuum coils if reachable
    3. Clean light fixtures, chandeliers etc.
    4. Clean or change filters (e.g. furnace, air filters, water filters)
    5. Polish silver, brass and other metals
    6. Clean and treat leather furniture
    7. Vacuum/dust mini blinds or if they are too greasy to dust, hire a blind cleaning company
    8. Clean reorganize drawers/cabinets/chests and donate items no longer needed
    9. Wash doors, knobs and light switches
    10. Launder or send curtains to the dry cleaners
    11. Clean or replace mats located at entries
    12. Reseal grout lines in tubs/showers if necessary
    13. Wash floor registers and other vent covers
    14. Clean and organize the pantry - check labels for expiry date
    15. Clean oven inside and pull out and clean underneath if movable
    16. Vacuum furniture removing cushions to vacuum underneath

There are many cleaning tasks that can be added to this list, but they normally get done on a regular basis either by you the homeowner or by a paid service like Maid in the Northwest.  If you would like help with getting these spring cleaning items scheduled, give us a call at 1-877-MAIDS911, and we can help you.   

It is pretty obvious that all these cleaning items will not get done in one day.  So make a schedule for yourself of the cleaning tasks you want to accomplish yourself, and which cleaning task you will schedule a service to do.  And then when all are accomplished sit back and enjoy your clean home.

Did your Mother sweep dirt under the rug? House Cleaning Strategy?

Many times during the day, my Mother would sweep the dirt on the kitchen floor under her handmade braided rug. She did't leave it there but always swept it all up at the end of the day. Some people thought this cleaning strategy was a deception and not okay. I think it was a very creative cleaning strategy.  With six children living on a farm in Oregon, it was quick, simple, put dirt out of sight, and kept the dirt from getting into other parts of the house. Whether new or old stradegies, we can learn from creative cleaning strategies like this one my Mother used.
