A Guide to the Annual Spring Clean


It’s something we do every year, and for many people, the annual spring clean can be a little stressful, which is usually due to lack of resources or planning. Cleaning the home from top to bottom is no big deal, providing you know what you are doing and have everything you need, and with that in mind, here is a short but informative guide on spring cleaning the house.

Essential Items to Prepare

Prior to the allocated big cleaning day, you should acquire the following:

  • Brooms and dustpans
  • Mops and buckets
  • Long duster
  • Black plastic bags
  • Cleaning solutions – for bathroom and glass
  • Blankets to cover the carpets
  • Dry cloth

Hire a Skip

If you think there will be nothing to throw away, think again. Device packaging, unwanted items and broken appliances will turn up during the clean, and rather than wondering what to do with it all, there is affordable local skip hire in York, so make sure you order the skip a few days before you carry out the clean. This will ensure that every goes smoothly and once the skip is full, call the provider and they will come and collect it.

Working One Room at a Time

Professional house cleaners do this, and for good reason, as working several rooms at once only takes longer. Once a room has been cleaned, open the windows, close the door and move on to the next room.

If the family is pitching in, make sure that everyone knows what they are doing and always start at the ceiling and work your way down.
