It is that time of year again. No, not tax season. Wait, OK it is, but that is not the point we are trying to make. It’s time for…… SPRING CLEANING!!!

Let’s face it, you’re either the type of person who loves spring cleaning, or who hates it. Either way, it has to be done. If you aren’t one of the lucky ones who can hire professional, RightAtHome.com has some great tips to help you along including downloadable checklists for each room of your Tampa new homes, AND outside.

Some suggestions for an organized spring cleaning experience are:

1. Have a plan… It is hard enough getting started cleaning, but you should map it out and know where you will be cleaning and when. Having a plan allows you more freedom to do what you want with whatever room you are cleaning. It helps you stay on track, and can sometimes speed up the process. Let us not forget that planning also includes delegating who does what. Whether there are two or six people living in your home, delegating tasks helps expedite the process.

2. Make safety your number one priority… You should always be aware of who is doing what, where, and what products they are using. Many products have chemicals that can be harmful to anyone who uses them, especially children. With certain products, and certain areas that you will be cleaning, you may even need special equipment, i.e. goggles, or rubber gloves. It is always a good idea to be aware of your surroundings. This will help prevent accidents.

3. Celebrate the great job you’ve done… Spring cleaning is a big deal. For most people it is the only deep clean they will do of their home all year. When you are done, it is going to be a huge accomplishment. Go out for ice cream, go to dinner, go to the beach, or spend a day relaxing; you just cleaned your WHOLE HOUSE. You know you deserve it.
