25 Easy Spring Cleaning Tasks to Freshen Your

Home

by Maria Gracia Join our newsletter to be notified when the newest Organizing Article is available. Spring is one of my favorite seasons of the year. I love freshening up my home during the first few weeks of this season. Here are 25 easy spring cleaning tasks that I always do. 1. Open windows. Remove musty winter odors by letting in some fresh air. 2. Swap seasonal clothes. Swap bulky sweaters for your warm-weather clothes. 3. Winter bedding. Launder your winter comforter, mattress pad and bed sheets. 4. Clean window treatments. Inspect, dust, vacuum, or dry-clean window treatments. 5. Winter coats. Have your winter coats dry-cleaned and stored away for next winter. 6. Smoke alarms. Change the batteries in all your smoke alarms. This should be done at least 2 times a year. 7. Service the A/C. Schedule a routine air conditioner maintenance and inspection. Trust me, you want your A/C working on the first hot day of summer! 8. Vacuum. Move furniture and vacuum underneath it. 9. Spot clean furnishings. Vacuum sofas and chairs and spot clean as needed. 10. Ceiling fans. Dust the ceiling fans throughout your house. 11. Crown molding and baseboards. Dust crown molding and lightly wash baseboards. 12. Clutter control. Declutter ONE space in your home. It could be a closet, a drawer, cabinet, or the space under your bed. 13. Vents and registers. Vacuum or wash heat registers and air vent covers. 14. Your dryer. Clean the lint from your exterior dryer vent. 15. Kitchen cupboards. Discard expired foods. 16. Rain downspouts. Clear rain gutters and downspouts of leftover fall and winter debris. 17. Inspect the roof. Check your roof for damage, leaks, lost shingles, etc. and make any necessary repairs. 18. Patio furniture. Remove, wash and repair outdoor furniture. 19. Trash Receptacles. Wash out trash and recycling bins. 20. Gardening tools. Inspect gardening tools for rust and remove any dirt and debris. If time allows, organize all outdoor tools in ONE area or zone of your garage. 21. Lawn mower maintenance. Service your lawn mower and get the blades sharpened. This will make yardwork much easier. 22. Restock fuel. Refill fuel containers for your outdoor equipment, like the lawn mower and trimmers. 23. Clean birdhouses. Clean and repair damaged birdhouses. Restock bird feeders as well. 24. Spring clean your car. Clear out the car removing all items from the floor, seats, and cup holders. Spot clean the upholstery as needed. 25. Sweep. Sweep the porch, deck, and around the door removing all debris. Back to Organizing Articles Index
