Spring Cleaning Tips Checklist_part 1

1. Before you start cleaning, make sure that you?ve got everything you need. It’s no fun to be in the middle of doing a clean sweep, only to find out that you?ve got no window cleaner or dust cloths. Take stock of your equipment and make sure that you?ve got all the cleaning and dusting tools that you?ll need to clean your house from top to bottom.

2. Gather the right tools for each room and stash them in a bucket/basket that you can carry with you from room to room. You might consider a few specialty items that will make things easier for you.

A duster with an extendable arm makes it easy to reach things that collect dust ? but that are out of reach for daily dusting. You can use a long-arm duster (Reach Duster) to get at ceiling fans, high corners and chandeliers. I also recommend a plastic bag for trash as you go.

3. In each room, start at the top and work your way down. Clear everything off at once ? and put things where they belong. Once the room is clear of clutter, dust high objects, wash walls downward, clean appliances, dust furniture ? and save the floors for last.
