Believe it or not, it’s time to start thinking about spring cleaning your home. Spring cleaning is important for everyone, particularly if you’re an allergy sufferer. And it’s even more important in the times of COVID-19. You owe it to yourself and your family to enjoy a clean that’s more than dirt-deep. Here are our tips on how to get started.

1. Make a Schedule

Scope out your home: What areas do you skip during routine cleaning? Tackle these first. A plan will keep you focused on the task at hand. Just go room by room.

2. Declutter

Studies show that a disorganized home raises your stress level. Inhaling dust and living in a cluttered work space can take a mental toll. Now that we spend more time at home — and in our home offices specifically — keeping a neat work space is more important than ever.

Set aside some time to:

  • Dust and organize your office
  • Dump dross from that dreaded junk drawer (and desk drawers!)
  • Organize your closets
  • Feel the relief of a less stressful life

3. Use a HEPA Vacuum

A HEPA — high-efficiency particulate air filter — vacuum should be one of your most valuable spring-clean tools. It eliminates dust build-up, dispersing the tiny airborne particles such as pet dander and other common household flotsam that can aggravate allergy symptoms.

Just about every spring house-cleaning list includes a HEPA. Miele vacuums have powerful suction and sealed filtration systems, and carry seven-year warranties to back up an enviable reputation for long-lasting quality. They’re ideal options for allergy sufferers.

Look for a vacuum with dusting brushes, crevice tools and hoses that make it simple to clean ceiling fans, cobwebs in corners, pillows, and tight spaces behind and underneath furniture.

4. Think Green When You Spring Clean

Spring should start on a clean note, so don’t expose yourself to chemicals and toxins. A steam cleaner is an ideal green product for your microwave, tile, hard floors, kitchen appliances, bathrooms and even outdoor areas.

A bargain basement alternative is a combination of white distilled vinegar, baking soda, and water. These ingredients are affordable, non-toxic, and are a proven formula for keeping your home spotless.

5. Always Work from Top to Bottom

When setting about a spring clean, start from the ceiling. This will force debris downward and save you from having to dust or clean your living space repeatedly.. If you have a vacuum with an extension hose, use it to tackle cobwebs and dust from your ceilings and fans first.

Then dust your furniture and other items before vacuuming all the dust and debris off your floors. It will save you time.

6. Walls and Windows Need Love too

People almost always clean their floors, but typically forget to deal with walls and windows. Just use a damp towel to wipe down walls and blinds (starting from the top). Remove and wipe down the window screens outside.

Avoid using chemical cleaners on windows. A steam cleaner with a squeegee works well.

7. Don’t Be Scared of the Kitchen and Bathroom

Don’t be fazed by the prospect of cleaning your bathroom! Here are a few common trouble areas people miss:

Kitchens

  • Wipe down your cabinets.
  • Go through your pantry and refrigerator. Wipe down the shelves, and throw away old items.
  • If you have stainless steel appliances, use gentle cleaners or a steam cleaner to avoid scratching or other damage.

Bathrooms

  • Change your shower curtain.
  • Go through your cosmetics drawer or medicine cabinet and throw away expired items.

Consider installing a new fan or an upgrade to ensure your bathroom remains in top-notch condition. Depending on the unit you select, it may even come with built-in lighting, automatic operation, and other user-friendly features.

8. Don’t Forget About Your Air

Air conditioner ducts build up dust during winter. Furnace and HVAC filters should be inspected regularly. Installing a more robust filter with a high MERV rating will catch smaller, irritating particles. It’s an inexpensive way to make sure you are breathing clean, healthy air.

The best defence against allergens, indoor chemicals and odors is an air purifier. If anyone in your home suffers from allergies or wakes up stuffy during allergy season, adding an air purifier to his/her bedroom will help.

9. Have Severe Allergies? Protect Yourself.

Cleaning will more than likely unsettle all the winter dust on furniture and fixtures. If you suffer from allergies or are using heavy-duty cleaners, be sure to read the labels. For safe spring cleaning, wear rubber gloves, masks, scarves and even hairnets. Protective clothing will help guard against skin irritations and allergic reactions.

10. Let Spring Cleaning Set a New Tone

Adding new colorful pillows or art are great ways to lift and lighten your home space. Replacing items like bedding, towels, table linens, and even window treatments are other ways to transform your rooms for spring and warm weather ahead.
