Spring is the time to dust out the remnants of winter and welcome in the freshness of the season. Instead of feeling overwhelmed with the task, break it down room by room. Here are five tasks that will make your living spaces shiny and clean:
- Move furniture, and vacuum behind and under everything.
- Shampoo carpets, and shake out or clean rugs.
- Wipe down ceiling fixtures, lamp shades, blinds, baseboards, moldings and doorframes.
- Use your vacuum’s upholstery attachment to clean your furniture.
- Clear out the clutter in the room, putting trash in one pile and items to donate or recycle in another. Then return items that go someplace else.
