How to Prep for a Successful Spring Cleaning

Spring is here, and you know what that means – it's time to roll up our sleeves, dust off those cleaning supplies, and give our homes a much-needed refresh. At Polished Cleaning Services, we're all about helping you achieve that sparkling clean space you deserve. So, grab your favorite cleaning playlist and let's dive into the dos and don'ts of spring cleaning!

DO start with a plan. Before you dive headfirst into cleaning chaos, take a moment to create a game plan. Make a checklist of all the areas you want to tackle, from the dusty corners to the cluttered closets. Creating a plan helps you stay organized and ensures you don't miss anything important.

DO work on one room at a time. Trying to clean your entire house in one go can be overwhelming. Instead, focus on one room at a time. Set a timer for an hour, crank up the music, and give it your all. You'll be amazed at how much you can accomplish when you're focused and motivated. Spread out your cleaning vibes over a week.

DON'T underestimate the power of decluttering. Spring cleaning is the perfect time to purge those items you no longer need or use. Be ruthless! Donate or toss anything that doesn't spark joy or serve a purpose in your home. Trust us, you'll feel lighter and more refreshed with less clutter weighing you down.

DO work from top to bottom. When it comes to cleaning, always start at the top and work your way down. This way, any dust or dirt that gets knocked loose will fall to the floor, where you can easily sweep or vacuum it away. Plus, you won't have to redo your hard work if dust settles on freshly cleaned surfaces.

DON'T forget to tackle those often-overlooked areas. Spring cleaning isn't just about the obvious spots like countertops and floors. Remember to give some love to those forgotten areas, like baseboards, light fixtures, windows and behind appliances. You'll be amazed at how much fresher your home feels when every nook and cranny is clean.

DO add a fun scent using essential oils. Scent can freshen a space and enhance your cleaning experience. Our favorite at Polished Cleaning Services is TEA TREE OIL. Add a little to your cleaning water or a drop or two on your vacuum filter. Bonus: the oil repels dust, keeping your space cleaner for longer.

DO enlist the help of professional cleaners. Let's face it – spring cleaning can be a daunting task, especially if you have a busy schedule. That's where Polished Cleaning Services comes in! Our team of expert cleaners can handle the dirty work for you, leaving your home looking and feeling polished to perfection.

DON'T neglect regular maintenance. Once you've tackled your spring cleaning checklist, don't let all your hard work go to waste. Establish a regular cleaning routine to keep your home looking its best year-round. A little maintenance goes a long way in maintaining that fresh start feeling.
