Homeowners hoping for a productive spring cleaning should prioritize certain tasks to get the most out of this annual tradition. Here are five house cleaning tasks that can instantly make your house feel fresh and tidy.

  1. Clean your windows

Window cleaning is not just about being able to see what is happening outside. Clear, spotless windows allow more natural light into your house, which can boost your quality of life. More sunlight in the house boosts the body’s vitamin D and serotonin levels, which results in more positive moods, increased brain function, and improved creativity.

  • Get rid of unwanted items

House clutter can be a result of unnecessary items taking up space. Are there any small kitchen appliances or electronics that are not being used? Do your children have any unused toys that they’re willing to donate to charity? Don’t let your unused items collect dust in a corner.

  • Scrub your tiled surfaces

Tiles on your kitchen or living room floor give your home a fashionable, stately appearance. However, tiles are also prone to collecting dirt, debris, and grout. You may need to scrub your tiles thoroughly with ingredients such as dish soap, baking soda, or bleach to get rid of persistent dirt or grout that stays in the gaps of your floor.

  • Clean kitchen cabinets

Many homeowners are unaware of their kitchen cabinets’ propensity for collecting thick grease spots. If you have begun to see grease stains on your cabinets, many of the methods used for cleaning tiles are also great for breaking down grease. Baking soda, vinegar, or dish soap will also work wonders for keeping your kitchen unblemished.

  • Replace your old mattress

If you have used the same mattress for more than a decade, it may be misshapen and uncomfortable. Furthermore, it may have collected large amounts of dust and allergens over the years. If you keep sneezing and don’t know why, the culprit may be the microscopic dust mites that occupy dusty mattresses and secrete allergenic feces. To avoid discomfort and pests like bed bugs and dust mites, you may need to get a mattress replacement every ten years.
