Spring, traditionally a time for new beginnings. Our trees and plants are starting to come back to life, lambs are being born and Easter is almost here. After the long, dark Winter months, it’s no wonder we want to open our windows, letting in the fresh Spring air and give our houses a good clean.
Starting a Spring clean can, however, seem daunting. Where to start? Here are our top tips for an effective declutter and Spring clean;
Declutter; if you’re serious about a good Spring clean it’s important to get rid of any accumulated rubbish. If you have Children why not donate their old, unused toys to charity? There are some fantastic local charities such as Derian House that will take unwanted items off your hands to sell in their shops. The proceeds help fund their Children’s hospice, offering much needed palliative and respite care
Hire a skip, let’s face it from time to time we all need to be ruthless and simply ‘get rid’. Whether it’s garden furniture that’s seen better days, the gradual accumulation of rubbish we all have in our garages, or old off-cuts and tiles from a recent DIY project. If you’re looking for skip hire in Bolton and the surrounding areas we can help!
Go through one room at a time. Of course, we ALL get distracted, however, working through your house efficiently, one room at a time is the most effective way. Open the windows, start by removing any unwanted items, vacuum carpets, curtains, skirting boards & even ceilings (cobwebs!)
Clean your windows, the inside is just as important as the outside (something that applies to most things in life!) for crystal clear windows Ideal Homes window cleaning guide tells you exactly what you need
Lastly, take your time! You don’t have to do it all in one day, why not set yourself tasks over a realistic period of time? A good Spring clean takes time, but it’s worth it. The rest of the years cleaning should just be about keeping on top of or maintaining your initial deep clean. Another idea is to reward yourself regularly with cups of tea/coffee and the odd biscuit (or you could even treat yourself to something once you’re done)
