It’s that time of year again. Spring has sprung, cobwebs have come to light and it’s time for a big clean! Where to start? We’ve created a simple and easy to follow checklist for you. Enjoy this wonderful time of year and sunshine.

Inside the House

  • Clean all your furniture by vacuuming your couches, polishing your wooden items and dusting all your cabinets.
  • Vacuum the floors, and those ‘hard to reach’ spots in the corners of the ceiling.
  • Dust the house, making sure you get in all those hard to reach places (Door trims, window edges and ceiling fans)
  • Clean out the air vents
  • Scrub those windows! Make it an enjoyable task by asking a friend to help


  • Defrost your freezer, clean out all the expired food and start fresh
  • Wash and sanitise your rubbish bin
  • Wipe all surfaces thoroughly, including your stove top
  • Clean out cupboards, throw out broken and unused plastic items.
  • Clean the inside of your oven by using a proper oven cleaner, also take a look at those exhaust vents inside.
  • To clear out drains, you can remove build up by using a drain cleaner. For a less chemical option, you can use vinegar or baking soda.


  • Turn your mattress over, to keep it even on each side.
  • Wash your sheets
  • Store your winter blankets away now that it’s warming up!
  • If possible, wash your pillows or replace them
  • Clean out those cupboards; discard of or donate your unused clothing
  • Wipe down all surfaces and vacuum thoroughly

Garage/Outdoor Area

  • Throw out all unused and broken items
  • Remove cobwebs by using a broom along the garage door edges and outside in your patio area.
  • Wash out and disinfect your rubbish bins (rubbish and recycle)
  • Clean your paths, wash down all those anthills and cobwebs also
  • Trim the gardens and remove weeds
  • If you have them, mow your lawns.


  • Organise your files so that they are easy to access when it comes to tax time
  • Clean out your keyboard, and wipe down the computer screen
  • Wipe all surfaces, including the ceiling fan and window edges

Having a spring-clean home is key to enjoying this warmer weather, without all that dust you can truly enjoy the fresh air! Open up the doors and windows, welcome in that breeze.
