Bedroom Spring Cleaning Checklist
‘Tis the time to welcome spring and start sweeping away the winter dust from our homes. The one room that everyone spends most of their time in once they are home is their bedrooms. A clean and tidy bedroom is heaven for all. Using this bedroom spring cleaning checklist will help guide you to getting it cleaned faster. It is the one room everyone pays extra attention to because at the end of the day, it is the place to be to relax and refresh.
Before you begin spring cleaning your bedrooms, here is a checklist that you might want to go over and prepare for yourself so that you make sure you have every important item covered:
Cleaning Supplies –
Make sure you have all the cleaning cloths, dusters, mops and liquids required to get your cleaning job done intact. It can be very frustrating if, in the middle of the cleaning, you suddenly realize that you are out of floor cleaning liquid. You tend to become off track if you are forced stop in the middle. Then momentum is lost. So make sure you stock up on these supplies before you begin. Here is a list of supplies that we suggest should be included as part of your everyday cleaning kit:
– Micro-fiber cleaning cloths
– All-purpose sprays
– Baking soda
– Duster and brush
– Garbage bag
– Steam cleaner
– Dish washing liquid (yes it works for cleaning other items too)
Strip those beddings –
Bedding spread over the bed for longer than 2 weeks can tend to become old and weary. Strip those beddings off your bed and throw them in the laundry. Spread clean and fresh new laundry on your bed. It really makes all the difference.
Pillows and cushions –
Ensure that you strip your pillow and cushion covers off the fillings as well. Vacuum those fillings to get rid of unwanted dust and hair particles. This is a really good tip because often times people do shed off the dust from the bed but the pillows are neglected. Pillows need to be kept clean as well because they come in direct contact with your face and skin. Re-apply fresh, new covers to the cushions and pillows. As this isn’t normally included during a professional house cleaning it is important to take care of this routinely and why we include it in our bedroom spring cleaning checklist.
Mattress dusting –
Ensure that you dust your mattress and probably make one round of vacuum on it as well. If you neglect the mattress then overtime bed bugs may develop on it. Bed bugs can be difficult to spot. This could be really bad for you and your family’s health. Ensure that you dust the mattress off dirt and dust at least once a month.
Rearranging the closets –
Make sure that you include your closets in this checklist otherwise they will remain unchecked for months. Closet cleaning and sorting is highly important so that you, yourself feel organized. You will also remain aware of what clothes you have and here you have kept them.
Make use of soapy water and a micro-fiber cloth to wash the window tracks and sills. Use of a newspaper and a good liquid glass cleaner to wipe the windows clean. Make sure you repeat the same from the outside of the windows as well. Windows get overlooked throughout the year but hey can really make an impact on your house and shouldn’t be overlooked for a bedroom spring cleaning checklist.
Surface Cleaning – Use a damp cloth to dust away dirt from table tops, frames, décor items. Make sure that when you begin dusting, you start from the top so that anything that falls on lower surfaces is picked up while dusting the items below.
