Spring Cleaning Checklist

Real Estate

STUCK AT HOME? How about some Spring Cleaning Ideas? 

Here is a checklist you can print out to use:

 Clean out the garage. If you have children, this is a great opportunity to have some family time and get them out of your basement (offer Pizza, that helps too).

 Power wash the outside of the house, including windows.

 Wash all inside windows. Vacuum out the tracks.

 Vacuum/wash/dry clean all window coverings.

 Dust and wash light fixtures and chandeliers, dust knickknacks, dust books and shelves.

 Vacuum lampshades and couches. Replace lightbulbs.

 Deep clean shower, toilet, floor and sink.

 Inventory the medicine cabinet and toss expired medicines.

 Inventory the refrigerator and toss all expired food and condiments.

 Defrost freezer (if needed) and wash out refrigerator.

 Clean oven and soak stove rings and drip pans.

 Vacuum front coils and motor to remove dust and dirt.

 Launder all blankets and bedding. Turn mattresses.

 Move furniture to the center of each room and vacuum thoroughly. Shampoo carpets if possible.

 Have a garage sale.

 Donate clothes not worn for more than two years.

IF you still want more ideas, here are two more that as equally as important as the ones before but might need a little bit more of expertise:

 Inspect the roof and gutter.

 Drain all sediment from your hot water heater.
