4 Tips To Prepare for Spring Cleaning

November 21, 2018

Wondering how to best get started on your spring cleaning goals? Here are some tips from Wells Ye, owner and founder of Fresh Tech Maid Service Chicago, voted one of the best cleaning service Chicago.

  1. Prioritize

Before jumping in without a plan, walk through your home and take note of which areas need more attention than others. Once you’ve done this, make a set cleaning schedule to address the messiest parts of your house first and commit to specific days to clean. You’ll definitely want to spend the most energy on the rooms that need the most love! Spring cleaning can be overwhelming when you think of your entire house. By taking baby steps and cleaning room by room, you’ll feel a true sense of accomplishment when each room is fresh and clean!

  1. Don’t Be Intimidated

It’s a fact. Some rooms are more difficult to clean than others, but don’t be intimidated or discouraged! Have a plan and be realistic with what you can accomplish. Use the Ultimate Spring Cleaning Guide like the one provided on the Fresh Tech Maid website so you can stay organized and feel in control. With a little extra work and careful planning, you can get your home sparkling clean in no time.

  1. Get Your Ducks in a Row

Having the right tools and products is just half the battle. Before taking on your spring cleaning list make sure that you have all the right supplies such as cleaning cloths, cleaning solutions, an extension duster (for cleaning the tops of all those hard to reach nooks and crannies), a vacuum, and several scrubby sponges. To keep things in order, consider investing in a plastic light weight caddy. By keeping your supplies in a caddy, you will have everything you need as you go from room to room. This will save you time from running back and forth to gather supplies.

  1. Load Up Your Caddy

Wells Ye, founder of Fresh Tech Maid services in Arlington Heights, suggests having two different caddies for your house as this will help you have the right supplies ready for each room. Label one of your caddies a “wet room” and the other caddy a “dry room.”  The wet rooms are your kitchen, bathrooms, and utility room. The dry rooms are your bedrooms and living areas. Items to have in stock for your wet room caddy are cleaning cloths (microfiber or cotton rags), cleaning solutions, dusting cloths or extension dusters (for the tops of cabinets and/or your ceiling fan), scrubby sponges for hard to remove build up, magic erasers, a toilet brush, a broom, a dustpan, a bucket and a mop. As for the dry room caddy it is handy to have more cleaning cloths (microfiber), cleaning solutions: all-purpose, furniture polish, floor cleaner, glass cleaner, dusting cloths and extension dusters (for light fixtures, ceiling fans), a broom, dustpan, a feather duster, a vacuum and a bucket and mop as needed.

After following these tips, you’re ready to jump in and start spring cleaning, right? Not yet? If you’re feeling overwhelmed or you can’t seem to find the motivation to start, no worries! Schedule a cleaning with Fresh Tech Maid, the top maid service Chicago.
