Early spring is usually the best time to roll up your sleeves and really clean and organize your home. This can be quite a lot of work depending on how big the home is and how regularly you clean it.

It’s a chance to give your home a new and cleaner look altogether. When you’re done, the property shouldn’t just be clean; it should also be organized in a way that makes it more comfortable and better suited to your way of life. This may take some planning and consideration, but it’s also fine to just get into the project and see where it leads you.

The kitchen

The kitchen is a part of the home that should be cleaned on a regular basis. Some maintenance needs to be done daily in order to keep the kitchen sanitary and well-organized. However, it’s still a good idea to clean the entire kitchen diligently every couple of months.

Start by throwing away cloths and broken appliances that you don’t plan to use anymore. Take everything out and clean it using natural cleaning products and make sure to return it based on how often you use it. Most kitchens are cluttered and this can be avoided just by knowing how you plan to use them in the future.

Living room

It’s usually the largest room and it requires the most attention, especially if you want to make sure that the room is presentable for company. Start with dusting everything, including appliances and gadgets, and vacuum both the carpets and the furniture.

You should also pay attention to details and throw out old magazines periodically and replace flowers to keep it fresh and sessional. Blinds and drapes should be taken down and washed either by hand or in a washing machine.


Bedrooms are much more difficult to clean they you might think. They need to be cleaned thoroughly and kept organized, but it’s also a rather personal space and you need to choose the products you use carefully. That way the room will stay clean, but you could still sleep in it without being irritated.

It’s important to find a cleaning product, like the one from Shellkote, that’s completely natural and works on all surfaces. You should also remember to vacuum the air-conditions and heating vents in order to keep the air clean even if you use some sort of air freshener for the bedroom.


Bathrooms should also be cleaned on a regular basis in order to keep them sanitary. The toilet and the tubs should be thoroughly cleaned at least once a week while floors and sinks should be washed more regularly than that.

Spring maintenance you should throw out anything you might not be using and that doesn’t belong in the bathroom. It’s also a good time to change the valves and make sure that all the plumbing is working and your bathroom is clean even in places that no one can see.

The yard

The yard often gets overlooked when it comes to cleaning and it’s a shame because that’s what most people first notice about your home and that’s an impression that can’t be changed. Most of the work that needs to be done in the yard isn’t actually gardening, but easy and manageable sweeping.

Twigs and branches that are just lying around should be picked up before you actually mow the lawn. You should also inspect the sprinklers and see if there are any cracks because sometimes that happens during a harsh winter. The same should be done with all the equipment that you’ve left outside before it’s ready to be used again.

Cleaning is more about planning than hard work. Think about how your home is being used as a piece of property and organize a cleaning plan accordingly and you’ll be able to clean the whole place faster and to keep your home fresh and comfortable.
