Spring Cleaning Tips

Spring Cleaning….

Just the thought of it can often feel overwhelming. Here are a few tips from us to help you organize, divide and conquer your spring cleaning!

TIP #1: Make a list of the areas you would like cleaned. We suggest the following areas:
* Wash baseboards
* Dust fans
* Steam clean or shampoo carpets
* De-clutter (donate old clothes, toys, etc)
* Organize kids rooms, garage

TIP #2: Start with the smallest room first. This can help keep your momentum going and encourage you to continue cleaning!

TIP #3: Don’t try to do everything in one day. You are more likely to do a better job cleaning if you form a plan of action of a period of two or more days. This way, cleaning will not feel so overwhelming and you’re more likely to do a better job!

TIP #4: Organized your closet by getting rid of unused clothes and accessories.  Try organizing the rest of your closet by how you get dressed in the morning and by color.

TIP #5: To clean painted walls, use a clean cloth or sponge and water. If that doesn’t work, dip the rag or sponge into water mixed with a little dishwashing liquid (the milder the better!)

If you decide that you need help with your spring cleaning, A & A Cleaning Services is here for you! We offer complete residential cleaning services including carpet cleaning. Call us today for more information: 281-489-8614!
