Make a checklist for each room. Although spring cleaning can seem like a significant undertaking, breaking it down by room can make your task much more manageable. Start from your most dreaded room, working your way to the easiest. It’s always easier to hike downhill!
Start high and work your way down. The best way to clean a house from top-to-bottom is to, well, clean from top to bottom. Light fixtures, fans, shelves, and other high-up features of your house tend to not get a lot of love during routine cleanings. When you do get to them, the dirt and grime will generally drift downwards.
Have a plan for unwanted or unneeded belongings. This is the step that’ll make your move more manageable. Figure out how you will organize the items that you don’t want or need anymore. Will you sort them by room? By functIon? Clothes could be put in a pile to go to a local charity, while collectibles can be put aside for a garage sale or portable storage.
Be ready to clean your future home. Ideally, the former residents of your new living space will be as thorough as you are in their spring cleaning efforts. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. To prepare for such a situation, make sure that your cleaning supplies are easily accessible as you get ready to unload your belongings.
