New Year Spring Cleaning Must-Dos: Get Fresh for 2022

The beginning of a new year is the perfect time to show your home some love and care and give it a big refresh for the coming months. There’s no better feeling than resetting your space and starting off a new year with a spotless home.

Here are a few of the most important things to do in your “spring” cleaning session in the first few weeks of 2022.

Deep Clean

Not only is a deep cleaning session great for your mind, but it’s important for your health too. Getting into those hard-to-reach places, removing dust and dealing with potential mould is important for our breathing.

Look into getting professional help from a company like Woodard residential cleaning as a good starting point. In doing a big deep clean, you’ll be ensuring that the foundations of your home are clean and germ-free, giving you a fresh feeling and peace of mind for the months ahead.

Declutter Your Closet

When your actual environment is clean, you need to address the clutter in your home. One of the places we accumulate the most clutter is unfortunately our closets. As we buy new pieces, old items eventually become less used and don’t really have a place or value in our closets anymore.

Take a look through your closet and assess which items you’ve really gotten use out of over the last 6 months. Anything you haven’t touched in ages should either be sold, donated or perhaps given a little fix-up and brought back to life so that it can be used once more.

Audit Your Pantry

Food cupboards is another place we tend to collect items we don’t really want, need, or use. Here, it’s even more important to do a semi-regular clean-up to avoid sitting with expired foods.

Assess what’s in your pantry: throw away anything that’s stale or expired, and donate any foods that are still edible but you simply don’t want them anymore. By doing this you’ll save space and be able to easily see the food you have available to you, making you far less likely to waste it!

Minor Fix-Ups

We all have those little household tasks that we put off for months. The curtains that need stitching, the stain on the cushion that needs to be treated, the houseplant that’s outgrown its home and needs to be re-potted.

Take this time at the beginning of the year to make a big to-do list of these small nut annoying tasks and really make the effort to get them done. These are the types of things that could end up being ignored for months if we don’t bite the bullet to just do the, and there’s no time like the present.

Assess Your Budget

Not quite a household cleaning job, but you’ll always find some benefit in going through your budget and assessing what really needs to be there.

Try to find unnecessary expenses that you can eliminate and areas where you’re wasting. This will help you to free up some room in your budget for splashing extra cash on turning your house into your dream home.
