5 Spring Cleaning Time Saving Ideas
That spring cleaning to do list can get long pretty quickly. We know how precious your time is, so we are sharing our best 5 tips for completing your tasks quickly and efficiently.
Work top to bottom
Anytime you start a room, it’s important to remember to work from the top, down. By starting with the ceiling, walls, and fan then working your way to other areas, you should only have to dust and vacuum once. This will also help you to avoid missing areas.
Consider doing tasks that apply to all rooms, then moving from room to room to do more specific cleaning.
Create a list
Create and follow a checklist like the one here to help keep you organized and on task.
To start, look around your home and consider what areas need the most attention and what places tend to get skipped during routine cleanings. Go room to room, creating your lists.
Make notes of items that may need to be fixed or replaced like bathroom fans, faucets, light bulbs, fire alarm batteries, etc.
Divide Up Projects
Don’t feel like you must complete all your spring cleaning at once. Dividing up projects by room or type of work that needs to be done can help alleviate the stress of all those projects.
Organization will go a long way in helping you stay on top of what needs to be done and which jobs are still left to do. Use your checklist to mark off what has been completed or where you left off.
Make spring cleaning a family affair. Create assignment lists or complete a room top to bottom together. Many hands make for light work, so the more the merrier.
Anytime you are starting a project where maintenance or cleaning is involved, it is best to make sure you have all the supplies and products you will need before you begin. Nothing wastes time quicker than running out of a something and having to go to the store to get more!
Before starting your projects and cleaning, look over your task list and make another list of all the cleaning products or other materials you may need. Then, check to see if there is anything that you need to restock or purchase.
Time is valuable. With a little bit of organization and planning, your spring cleaning can be done in an efficient and timely manner.
