Face it. This isn’t your college dorm room. You are an adult with a family. Having a house is more than furniture, feng shui and a refrigerator filled with food. It’s about keeping it clean and safe. Sometimes that means you need more than just a good vacuuming. You need a house detox.
A fine tuned, fine toothed combing of clean. Okay, not literally, but you need that detailing.
Haven’t really thought about where to start?? Here, let me help you.
There are tons of resources to schedule your spring cleaning tasks. Pinterest is a terrific source to find ways to keep a cleaning routine.
Here is one that I created out of a few sites that I liked:
1: Get Your Supplies Check the cleaning supplies you have on hand and replace/refill what you need. Nothing like starting a project and having to stop for more supplies. You’ll get off track and spend more time than you wanted to. Also, get some extra trash bags and boxes for #2
2: Get The Clutter Out! Before you get cleaning, get purging. Go through the closets and garage. Get rid of those things that you aren’t using or wearing. Put them in 3 categories: Sell, donate, or dump.
3: Section Off The House. Where to start, a list of to-do’s in that area, what you want the final vision to be.
4: Call Your Professional Cleaning Company You could go online and search and research or I could give you the services that my buddies at Zerorez can do:

5: Get Cleaning No excuses now! Crank up your Justin Timberlake playlist and get going! Just think about how your house is gonna look and feel. It’ll smell better, it’ll feel better and it’ll be healthy for you and your family.
A really good deep clean (like spring cleaning) is going to make a huge difference.
Detoxing. Not just for your body. Good for your house too!
