After a cold winter, we long for sunshine and glimmers of hope that tells us spring is coming! House cleaning companies suggest spring is the perfect time to air out a stale house after a long winter.
With spring on the horizon, the following are a few commonly forgotten tasks you should consider when getting your house ready for spring.
Clean Your Carpets and Upholstery
How long has it been since your carpets and upholstered furniture were deep cleaned?
Maybe you vacuum your carpets and furniture regularly, but spring is the perfect time to consider having your carpets and upholstered furniture cleaned professionally.
Carpet cleaning removes the deep dirt and grime tracked in over the winter months and offers your home a fresh start for spring.
Wash Cabinets, Baseboards, and Woodwork
Dust and dirt accumulate in forgotten or hard to reach places of your home including baseboards, trim, and woodwork.
Wash all woodwork and trim and give your cabinets a fresh start by washing them free of dirt, spills, or grimy fingers. By giving these features a little attention, you’ll have less dust in your home and your woodwork will shine.
Polish Your Wood Furniture
Speaking of the woodwork, now is a great time to polish wood furniture including your dining room table, piano, end tables, or coffee tables.
Wood furniture can dry out after being exposed to dry heat from your vents or fireplace over the winter. Protect your furniture and give it the moisture it needs by polishing it until it shines.
Wash All Light Fixtures
When you look up, do you see bugs or other debris caught in your light fixtures? Now is the time to remove all light fixtures throughout your home and wash them.
Replace burnt out light bulbs and notice how fresh, clean fixtures make your lights shine brighter.
Finish and Protect Your Flooring
Just like your wood furniture needs polishing, your floors could use a fresh layer of protective finish. Use a combination wash-and-wax floor cleaner for a brighter clean with a protective shine.
Wood floors should be cleaned with a wood cleaner, polish, and topped with a fresh wax coating. Protect your floors now to ensure years of long use.
Go Through Your Closets
Do you have clothes in your closet you haven’t worn in years? Use spring cleaning as a great excuse to get rid of old items you no longer use.
Donate unneeded clothes, shoes, toys, or home décor to local organizations in your community. You’ll feel better with clean, organized closets to start the spring and summer seasons off right.

Hey there! Love the tips. I think spring is the best time to polish your wood furniture. Because then there is plenty of time for the furniture to dry out. I polish my teakwood furniture once every two years. I feel I can leave it for more than 4 years before polishing, but then I don’t like mold that sets in.
Great round up of tips. I’ve been feeling the itch to do some deep spring cleaning. So these are perfect!

Cleaning carpets DIY? Vinegar, dish soap, and water. Stir one tablespoon of dish soap into one quart of warm water, then add 1/4 teaspoon of white vinegar. This is a good overall cleaner. Be sure to test the solution on a small, inconspicuous spot on your carpet before applying it to the stain.
