A guide to spring cleaning your home

A guide to spring cleaning your home

It’s that time of year again when the last chill of winter starts to fade, the clocks go forward and we get the itch to freshen up our homes. But contrary to popular belief, it’s not just about scrubbing floors and dusting shelves. Spring cleaning is all about embracing decluttering and reorganising your home for ultimate peace of mind.   

If you’re ready to roll up your sleeves and start your spring clean, we’ve noted down everything you need to know below. 

How often should we spring clean our homes? 

If the thought of spring cleaning makes you groan, you’re not alone. According to research by Hammonds, around 14% of the population only have a clear-out once per year. Phew! 

But not everyone is so blasé about spring cleaning. It turns out that about 29% of households do a major clean-out monthly, 5% are on it weekly and around 22% have a clear-out twice per year. 

How to clean your home

  1. Tackle it by section 

When tackling the spring clean, doing it section by section is the way to go. Start where you spend the most time, like the kitchen or living room. Then work your way to the bedrooms, bathrooms and any less-used spots. It’s all about not overwhelming yourself and keeping things manageable. Plus, breaking it down into sections makes it easier to fit into your schedule.

Mimi Bogelund, from The Organised Home & Life, is all about the Marie Kondo-inspired deep dive. She suggests pulling everything out of your cupboards, one category at a time, so you don’t lose your mind in the process.

  1. Create a habit of it 

To make spring cleaning a habit, start by incorporating small, daily actions like making your bed or doing dishes right after eating. Slot in specific chores on certain days to keep on track. 

If you’re still struggling, it might be because your home is cluttered. If you can, add storage that allows you to easily see what you have so that you can shop more consciously. For example, walk-in wardrobes can help you better organise your clothing, so you can see what you have and what you don’t need. 

  1. Make some cash 

Did you know half the people surveyed reckon they’ve got up to £150 of unworn clothes lying around? Clearing out can not only declutter your space but also line your wallet (which is especially helpful during the current recession!) or help someone in need. Whether you’re hitting up eBay, hosting a garage sale or dropping off a large bag of clothes at a charity shop, getting rid of the old can be pretty rewarding.

Final thoughts… 

Spring cleaning is more than just a set of tasks – it’s a way to breathe new life into your home and prepare for the year ahead. So, open the windows, let the fresh air in and embrace the spirit of renewal that spring brings.
