Are You Doing a Big House Cleaning Job?

Are you feeling a bit of spring in the air? Even though it might still be very cold outside, perhaps you have noticed that there are signs of spring in the way of little green leaves popping out on trees and bushes. If those observations lead you to want to do the big spring cleaning on your house, from getting your family members to help to arranging for tile and grout cleaning, here are some ideas that might help you to make your house shine and smell delicious.

Involve Other Family Members

Of course, if you live by yourself, you'll have no choice but to clean your house solo. That's probably not a big deal since you more than likely have less to clean than a person who has many family members. If you are part of a family, consider involving your spouse and your kids in the cleaning project. There are obviously many ways you can do that. For example, think about making a big poster board chart that has listed on it all of the chores that need to be done. Then ask your family members to write their names beside the chore they want to do. Another idea is to create teams to do the work. For example, an older sibling paired with a younger brother or sister might not only get the job done, but each team might have some added fun when competition is part of the plan.

The Main Event

Consider the best way to get your house clean from top to bottom. For example, choose an entire Saturday to get the job done and write that date on the calendar. Be sure to tell your family which day will be cleaning day so they won't make other plans. Then have a plan of attack. For instance, while some family members are dusting and vacuuming, others can be doing jobs like cleaning cabinet fronts in the kitchen and in the bathroom. Another idea is to have the entire family go from room to room to work together. You might want to hire professionals to do part of the cleaning, too. For example, if your tile doesn't shine anymore and if you noticed that the grout between the tiles is downright nasty looking, consider hiring a tile and grout cleaning service. The workers will have the training and the right equipment to make your tile and grout look like new.
