Grosvenor Garden Centre: Home of Vintage Plants, Indoor and Outdoor Plants

When I was in college, one of my roommates found a piece of paper taped to the wall above our kitchen counter that looked like it had been there for months. It was so old and faded that we could barely read it. But we could tell it was some sort of list and probably belonged to one of us. The page contained 27 to-dos, each with an assigned point value ranging from 5 points (Vacuum and Dust Windows) to 25 points (Clean out Fridge). We called it the “Spring Cleaning Checklist” and spent the next few weeks trying to check off as many points as possible before the end of April.



Why Do We Have Spring Cleaning?

When cold winter weather gives way to warm spring days, it’s only natural to want to clean up and spruce up your home. After all, who wants to come inside to a cluttered, dirty house when the weather is warm, flowers are blooming and the sun is shining? Spring cleaning is more than just tidying up your home. It’s a form of preventive maintenance. Regular cleaning will help keep allergens at bay, which is especially helpful if you have allergies or asthma. A clean house is also more inviting and will help prevent costly damage from things like mold and water damage. A thorough spring cleaning can also help you get your house organized for the new season by adding some extra storage and getting rid of items you don’t need.


Spring Cleaning Checklist

Spring cleaning will vary from house to house, but here are a few tasks that should be on every homeowner’s checklist: – Wash windows inside and out – Clean out your fridge – Dust and vacuum every room – Wash your floors – Clean your bathrooms – Organize your closets – Clean out your drawers – Clear out your garage


Dusting and Vacuuming

It might seem like a no-brainer, but the best way to start a spring cleaning is with a thorough cleaning and dusting of the entire home. Start with dusting all of your indoor furniture, fans, light fixtures and other items. Vacuum your entire home, including the stairs and ceiling fans, to remove dust and allergens and make the home smell fresh. If you have hardwood, tile or other types of flooring, consider cleaning those as well to remove dirt and grime. Grosvenor garden centre


Wash Windows and Screens

This may be the first time all year you’re opening your windows for anything other than gardening, so it’s important to clean the screens before you open them. Use a solution of water and vinegar to wash windows inside and out to remove dirt and grime and make your home sparkle. When cleaning windows, avoid using newspaper, as the ink can make your windows streak.


Final Thoughts

Spring is the perfect time to start fresh with your home, and a thorough spring cleaning is the best way to do that. This will ensure that you get your home ready for warm weather and that you also get rid of allergens and pests that have been hibernating all winter long.
