Spring Training, Spring Flowers, Spring Cleaning … It’s SPRING!
Almost everybody can find something to love about spring, the season of new beginnings …
Baseball fans celebrate the return of America’s sport as players report for spring training. Gardeners get excited about planting spring flowers and watching their yards transform with beautiful blooms.
And homeowners fall in love with their homes all over again once they give them a thorough spring cleaning.
To help you with your own spring cleaning this year, we’d like to give you our spring cleaning checklist. We’ve compiled it to include not just general cleaning, but also tasks to keep your home appliances working at top efficiency. (While we can help with most of this, we don’t move heavy furniture, clean carpets, or wash windows.)
Spring Cleaning Checklist
Wash all the woodwork (door frames, baseboards, windowsills).
Move the furniture and clean the floors (and walls) under and behind everything. Get your carpets cleaned.
Vacuum the drapes and valances. Clean the blinds. Wash the windows.
Clean the exhaust fans in your bathrooms and your HVAC (heater/air conditioning) vents.
Wash whatever’s washable — blankets, pillows, throw rugs, bath mats.
Clean the decorative items up on high shelves and ledges.
Run the filters of your stove hood (usually a metal mesh) through the dishwasher to clean them.
Clean the inside of the fridge — walls, shelves, drawers … the works — with a mixture of 1 c. white vinegar and 1 c. warm water.
Clean the inside of the oven.
Clean your dishwasher by running a cycle with just 1 c. white vinegar poured into the empty machine.
Wash your dryer’s lint filter — actually WASH it with a little soap and warm water.
Vacuum and clean the condenser coils of your refrigerator (usually underneath or at the back of the unit).
