5 Tips for Spring Cleaning

May 1, 2021 by · Leave a Comment 

Whether you live in an apartment or a big house on the ocean, spring is a great time to clean out closets, sheds and garages. The weather is mild and it feels good to get outside and work in flower beds or putter around the garage.

Clean out Closets

Go through your closets and get rid of anything you haven’t worn in the past two years. Each family member should do their own closet so it’s not an overwhelming chore.

Unclutter Garage

It’s easy to let junk fill up the garage. Pretty soon, you can’t even get cars in there. Get rid of things that are laying around that no one is using.

Clean windows

Spring is a great time to clean the windows. All you’ll need is window cleaner, a squeegee and a rag. This is a good time to check window screens for any damage from those winter storms.

Get Pets ready for summer

Your pets need attention too. Take them in to the vet for a physical to make sure they’re healthy. While there, have your pet bathed and their nails clipped so pets can be ready for summer too.

Don’t forget the bedding

One thing that we often neglect during winter is changing out the bedding. If possible, turn your mattress over and let it air out occasionally. If your mattress is over 7 years old, think about replacing it. Old mattresses can cause back aches, plus they are more likely to get bedbugs. Foam replacement for an older mattress isn’t expensive or difficult to do. You can buy these online and have them shipped to you.

The Foam Factory has all types of mattress foam at great low prices.
