GET YOUR SPRING CLEANING CHECKLIST

By
Real Estate Agent with Exit Realty Premier

The calendar has turned March in Massapequa and Amityville, Long Island, NY and warmer weather is around the corner. Get ready for Spring Cleaning Season.

For households in which Spring Cleaning is an annual ritual, this helpful checklist from MarthaStewart.com makes sure no job gets left behind.

From the smallest of chores to the biggest of projects, many common tasks are covered, including:

  • Vacuuming and shampooing rugs
  • Waxing wooden furniture and non-wood floors
  • Dusting books and shelves
  • Resealing grout lines in kitchens and bathrooms
  • Clean and/or launder window treatments

 

 

 

Then, you’ll want to remember to flip your mattresses, change your air filters, and test your home’s smoke alarm batteries.

Most of the cleaning can be handled with household items like rags and cleansers, but for a few of the items, you may want to rent a machine from a local hardware store or supermarket. Carpet shampooers are a noteworthy example. Rental costs are nominal and the potential time savings are big.

For some households Spring Cleaning is a one-day affair. For others, it’s a weekend project that lasts a month. However you choose do it, keep this checklist handy and you’ll have an easier time.

Leave it to Martha to give us a solid guideline :)  Any change of season is a great time to refresh around the house, Spring does seem like a natural fit for it though!

Good information for home owners. Those that plan to list their homes for sale should make sure that everything, including the windows is very clean.
