Spring is the perfect time to refresh and revitalize your living space, even if you recently moved into a new home. And tackling spring cleaning projects in a new home will help set you up for success so you can rest easy in a clean and organized space throughout the summer. Here are some helpful tips to guide you through the process:

Start With a Plan 

Before diving into cleaning, create a checklist of tasks. An outline will help you stay organized and will remind you to cover all areas of your new home. Break down the tasks by room or specific items, such as windows, floors, and appliances.

Clear Out Clutter 

Take this opportunity to declutter and dispose of items you no longer need. Donate or sell them to create a more organized and spacious living environment. Now is also a good time to finally get rid of those pesky moving boxes still hanging out in your garage.

Focus on Kitchen and Bathrooms

These are typically the most used areas in a home. Make sure yours remain in top shape. Deep clean appliances, scrub countertops, and disinfect sinks. Pay attention to hard-to-reach areas, such as grout lines and crevices. 

Deep Clean From Top to Bottom 

Begin by dusting and cleaning ceilings, light fixtures, and fans. Then, work your way down to walls, windows, and furniture. Finally, give your floors a thorough cleaning. This top-to-bottom approach prevents dust and dirt from settling on previously cleaned surfaces.

Don’t Forget Outdoor Spaces

Take this season to start transforming the outdoor areas of your new home. Spring is the perfect time to spruce up your lawn, gardens, landscaping, and patio areas. Sweep and wash your deck or porch, trim overgrown plants or trees, and add patio furniture if you haven’t already. Pressure washing exterior walls and windows will give your new home a fresh look.

Schedule Regular Cleaning

Once you’ve completed your spring cleaning, establish a routine for regular cleaning projects. Create a schedule that includes daily, weekly, and monthly tasks. Doing so will ensure your new home remains in pristine condition year-round.
