5 Spring cleaning tips to freshen up your home for summer

With summer around the corner, now is the perfect time to give your home a fresh start, but spring cleaning can be a daunting task. Prepare your home for the warmer months ahead with these 5 expert tips:

1. Start with a plan & gather supplies

Before you begin your spring cleaning, make a plan. It can be helpful to list the areas of your home you want to clean and prioritize by the amount of cleaning required – it’s easier to manage a big cleaning project when you break it down into smaller tasks.

And before you start cleaning, make sure you have all the necessary cleaning supplies for what you plan to tackle. Forgetting to buy things like gloves, cleaning agents, scrub brushes, and trash bags could derail your whole plan – so stock up!

2. Tackle the clutter

One of the most important steps in spring cleaning is decluttering. Go through your belongings, one item at a time, and decide what to keep and what to get rid of. Donate or discard things that you haven't used in a while or don’t want. You'll find it easier to clean around your home when you have less clutter in the way, plus you might be surprised how much bigger your space will feel.

3. Clean from the top down

To maximize your cleaning efforts, focus on cleaning rooms from the top down. Start with cleaning the tops of cabinets, shelves, ceiling fans, or anything else that’s high up in the room. As you continue cleaning, move down until you’re ready for the floors. All the dust and debris will fall to the ground and if you save the floors for last, you will only have to clean them once!

4. Don't forget the outside

Spring cleaning doesn’t have to be limited to the inside of the house. You can tidy up your home’s exterior by mowing your lawn, trimming bushes and shrubs, and pressure washing patios and decks. Cleaning your windows inside and outside can also help brighten up your home.

Consider adding some fresh decor to your front porch or deck to up your curb appeal. This will not only spruce up your home, but it will also make your outdoor areas more inviting for the sunny weather ahead.

5. Take the time to enjoy

Spring cleaning can be quite stressful, but it's important to take the time to enjoy the fruits of your labor. Once you've finished cleaning, take a few moments to appreciate the clean and fresh surroundings. Relax and enjoy your refreshed space after a job well done.


Spring cleaning is a great way to get a fresh start to the summer season. It may seem like a daunting task, but with a little planning and effort, you'll soon be enjoying a clean and fresh home that will make you proud. So roll up your sleeves, grab your cleaning supplies, and get ready to transform your home for the sunny season ahead!
