The Ultimate Spring Cleaning Checklist for Your Home: Inside and Out

Spring is in the air, and that means it's time to freshen up your home from top to bottom! With longer days and warmer weather on the horizon, now is the perfect time to tackle those cleaning tasks that have been piling up all winter long. Whether you're gearing up for a deep clean or just looking to spruce things up a bit, we've got you covered with our ultimate spring cleaning checklist for both the inside and outside of your home.

Inside Cleaning Tips:

  1. Dust from High to Low: Start by dusting ceiling fans, light fixtures, and high shelves using an extendable duster like the ones offered by Eversprout. Work your way down to furniture, baseboards, and finally floors.

  2. Deep Clean Carpets, Rugs, and Floors: Rent a carpet cleaner or hire a professional service to give your carpets and rugs a deep clean. Don't forget to use a brush to spot clean any stubborn stains. For tile floors in the shower, bathroom, kitchen, and more, use a grout brush to conquer tough grime and dirt.

  3. Wash Windows and Mirrors: Use a high-quality squeegee to wash windows and mirrors for a streak-free shine. 

  4. Declutter and Organize: Take the opportunity to declutter your home by getting rid of items you no longer need or use. Invest in storage solutions like baskets and bins to help keep things organized.

  5. Freshen Up Bedding: Wash all bedding, including sheets, pillowcases, and comforters. For extra freshness, consider hanging bedding outside to air out in the spring breeze.

  6. Clean Out Kitchen Cabinets and Pantry: Remove everything from cabinets and pantry shelves, wipe them down, and toss any expired items. Use a duster with an extension pole to reach high shelves.

  7. Scrub Appliances: Give your appliances a thorough cleaning inside and out. Use a brush to remove crumbs and debris from toaster ovens and a duster to clean refrigerator coils.

Outside Cleaning Tips:

  1. Clean Gutters and Downspouts: Clear gutters and downspouts of leaves and debris. This will help prevent water damage to your home during spring showers.

  2. Power Wash and Clean Exterior Surfaces: Use a power washer to clean siding, decks, patios, and walkways. Use a high-quality, durable brush that doesn't scratch surfaces to scrub decks, driveways, patios, siding, and more. Planning to re-stain your deck before the summer heat hits? Invest in a reusable stain brush and extendable pole to save you time, money, and health. 

  3. Trim Trees and Bushes: Prune trees and bushes to remove dead branches and promote healthy growth. Wrap your trees in protective plastic tree trunks to help keep your saplings safe from lawnmowers, weed wackers, harsh UV sun, the elements, and more. If you have a fruit tree, make sure to grab a fruit picker now so you're ready to gather fruit conveniently and help prevent it from bruising.

  4. Clean Outdoor Furniture: Wipe down outdoor furniture with a damp cloth or sponge to remove dirt and pollen. Use a brush to scrub any stubborn stains, and don't forget to clean cushions and umbrellas.

  5. Inspect and Clean Outdoor Light Fixtures: Check outdoor light fixtures for burnt-out bulbs and replace them as needed. Use a duster with an extension pole to remove cobwebs and debris.

  6. Prep the Grill: Give your grill a thorough cleaning before firing it up for the season. Use a grill brush to remove grease and grime from grates, and clean out the interior with a duster or brush.

By following this ultimate spring cleaning checklist, you can ensure that your home is fresh, clean, and ready to enjoy all season long. With the right tools from Eversprout, tackling even the toughest cleaning tasks is easier than ever. So roll up your sleeves, open those windows, and let the spring cleaning begin!
