Windows First

For some reason, having clean windows tends to make the whole place feel a lot cleaner. And for that reason, it’s a good idea to start with the windows first. Once you have done the windows, you will then already feel as though you are in a much better and cleaner home, and that will make cleaning the rest of the home even easier. Fortunately, it’s easy enough to keep your windows as clean as possible. And that is something that you will want to look into first and foremost.

It is mostly about what product you use. But as long as you are using one which you can be sure of, you will find it easy to keep them perfectly clean. Make use too to avoid any streak marks. And that can end up making the windows look even dirtier than if you had just left them alone. Once the windows are done, you will already feel better about the house and how it looks.

To clean the carpets can take a long time. But fortunately, it’s one of those things you only have to do every now and then. If you think it is time to clean your carpets, you should look into getting hold of some good quality carpet cleaners, as that will ensure that you are much more likely to get all the dirt up that you would like to. What’s more, you should ensure that you always vacuum the floor before cleaning. Because this will obviously ensure that it is much cleaner after the fact. That will mean that you get a lot more out of it. In addition, you manage to make your home look much cleaner on the whole as a result of it too.


The problem most people have with dusting is that it always just feels like you are moving dust around, and not really getting rid of it. However, it is better for your health – and for how the flat looks – to even just collect the dust, and if you use a good microfiber cloth you might even be surprised at how easily you can dispose of the dust afterward. As long as you do that, you will be able to enjoy being in the house much more, so that alone is worth considering if you have decided it is time for a spring clean any time of the year.
