Forget What the Groundhog Said, Spring Cleaning Season is Here!

Despite the groundhog's predictions, spring has hit Carrollton, Plano, and the rest of North Texas. Spring means rain and flowers, and it also means weeds, yard work, and seasonal chores to cross off your list. Sounds daunting or lack time to spring clean? That's okay. Hit the highlights with these top five tasks.

Bother with Baseboards. It is no secret that baseboards are dust, grime, and hair magnets. Rid your baseboards of dust quickly with your vacuum brush attachment. Then wipe them down with a mix of water and white vinegar. Pro tip: After cleaning them, wipe down with a dryer sheet to repel dust and hair going forward.

Clean Up High. Look at your high cabinets, shelves, ceiling fans, and spaces. Are they dusty? Likely, yes. This happens to many people because we tend to forget to dust what we can't reach. Grab a ladder and a rag and get to dusting!

Wash Down Your Walls. Wiping down your walls can clean off fingerprints, stains, and dust, but be sure to research what kinds of cleaners you can use on your paint. We suggest using a damp cloth to clean your walls or a dry microfiber cloth to maintain your finish.

Clean Behind Your Appliances. Sounds scary, right? Don't stress. Move your appliances to clean up spills, crumbs, grime, and other gross stuff that has rolled underneath or behind your stove or fridge. We also suggest that you very carefully dust or vacuum the coils of your appliances, too. This will help them run more efficiently.

Another quick spring cleaning project to help your home look great this season includes wiping down your kitchen and bathroom cabinets to clean up spills and fingerprints you may not have seen during day-to-day living.

Get your spring clean on! While you're at it, think about how great your space would look with an updated look. We'd love to help.
