Spring cleaning may not be something that you’re looking forward to, but it’s an integral part of waking your home up after a long winter. Here are some additional benefits to consider.
- Tidying up will enhance the overall appearance of your home.
- Thorough spring cleaning can help get rid of any contaminants that may be present throughout your home whether they be in your carpets, in your rugs, or even in your air.
- Getting rid of clutter is a great way to reduce stress, increase productivity, and give yourself a fresh mental break.

3. CURTAINS AND DRAPES
Much like upholstery, your curtains and drapes collect a lot more dust and allergens than you may realize. Call us — we’ve got it covered!
As we’ve discussed before, carpets can be home to many harmful things including allergens, pet dander, and more. We use industrial equipment and proven and professional methods to go a bit deeper than the surface. On top of professional cleaning, regular and thorough vacuuming is a great way to make sure none of these things make their way back into your carpet later down the line.
Rugs need love too! Our team utilizes different cleaning methods designed to properly maintain different styles of rugs. Whether they’re domestic or oriental, your rugs are in good hands!

7. BATHTUBS AND SHOWERS
Areas that are devoted to helping you get clean should already be pretty clean, right? Wrong! Tubs, showers, and showerheads are prone to grime and water stains, so don’t forget them too.
Now, let’s head into the kitchen. First stop, your countertops. Remove everything and give them a good wipe-down.
It can be easy to overlook, but over time, cabinets tend to build up a small amount of grime that is no match for a simple cleaning solution and a little bit of scrubbing.
A clean oven is only a sponge and a mixture of vinegar and baking soda away!
Are you sure that bottle of ranch still hasn’t expired? Are the shelves in your fridge accumulating more than one of the same thing? As often as you visit your fridge, it’s easy to overlook this stuff! Spring cleaning is the perfect time to take everything out, trash whatever has gone bad and give everything a good wipe-down. Trust us; this task is a satisfying one!
Much like some other items on this list, it can be easy to overlook how dirty your faucets have become. A quick once-over with a sponge is a great way to remove any gunk, buildup, or hard water stains that might have been there longer than you think!
Heat a glass of vinegar for one minute, then wipe!
You probably don’t spend a lot of time thinking about whether or not something that cleans other things is clean, right? Well, you might be surprised at what you may find. Take some time to give your dishwasher some post-winter TLC. Your dishes will thank you!
Nothing is better than squeaky clean windows!
It doesn’t take long for dust to build up on shelves, especially if they’re ones that you don’t use very often. Remove everything off of your shelves, wipe them down with some cleaning solution, and see the difference for yourself!
After shelves, these are dust’s second favorite home!
18. CEILING FANS
Heads up! These are very easy to overlook, especially if they’re always on. Turn all of the fans in your home off, and you’ll see for yourself just how much dust and dirt they have built up over time. Give them a quick dust-down to start breathing easier!
19. AIR DUCTS
Some air quality problems go beyond what dusting a fan will take care of. Some studies have estimated that the number of air pollutants present in indoor air can be 2-5 (or in some cases, 10) times higher than outdoor levels! Give us a call for a professional air duct cleaning that is designed to reduce the number of allergens, pollutants, illnesses, and other harmful airborne organisms that might be present in your indoor air.
20. OPEN WINDOWS
Nothing beats fresh spring air!
For many, this very well may be the most dreaded cleaning task of them all. Setting aside a couple of hours to go through everything in your closet to organize your clothes and purge anything you haven’t worn in a while is one of the best ways to tidy up and get your bedroom back on track!
22. WOOD FLOORS
All types of floors are subject to some degree of damage over time, and wood floors are no exception! We offer a full range of services designed to breathe life back into any wood floor.
