As we enter the spring season, one of the most popular and reoccurring trends is spring cleaning. Spring cleaning typically consists of people thoroughly cleaning, decluttering, and organizing their apartments, homes, cars, and other areas in the springtime. Although spring cleaning isn’t the most exciting, enjoyable, or easiest task, it is necessary to enhance your apartment living space for the new season, helping you create a clean, organized, and healthy environment that feels open and fresh. Continue reading for four helpful tips on cleaning your apartment during spring cleaning.
Set a Date
First thing first, you need to set a date. Cleaning can be a very strenuous and time-consuming task that we often tend to put off until a later date or time, allowing your apartment to accumulate more mess as you wait. However, setting a specific date dedicated to spring cleaning is a great way to ensure you’re free and committed to cleaning your apartment while reducing your chance of procrastinating. It also helps you prepare for cleaning ahead of time, allowing you to purchase the necessary cleaning products and materials, saving your time, and reducing your workload when it’s time to clean.
Another important task to tackle before cleaning your apartment is removing clutter. It can be challenging to properly clean spaces in your apartment when it’s disorganized and filled with clutter, especially in small spaces such as your bedroom or kitchen. Removing the clutter in your apartment and putting your belongings in their designated place makes it easier to maneuver through your apartment while performing cleaning tasks such as vacuuming and dusting.
Clean One Room at a Time
Even though apartments aren’t as big as homes, cleaning an entire area can become overwhelming, especially when cleaning an entire area all at once. Cleaning one room at a time is a helpful way to manage your cleaning tasks, saving you time and energy. It’s best to start with the room in your apartment that requires the most effort, such as the bathroom or kitchen, allowing you to complete that room before you’re too tired from cleaning other rooms in your apartment.
Make Cleaning Fun
We know that cleaning can often be boring, time-consuming, and physically exhausting. However, you can use many methods to make spring cleaning an enjoyable experience. For instance, you can listen to music as you maneuver from room-to-room cleaning or turn on the tv and watch your favorite movie or show without getting distracted from your primary task. You can also make cleaning a competition or sport if your apartment has more than one resident. There are many ways to make cleaning a more enjoyable experience with some creative thinking.
