How to Create the Perfect Spring Cleaning Checklist


Are you feeling overwhelmed with all the tasks you need to do to get your home ready for spring? Spring cleaning can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. With a few tips and a checklist of what needs doing, you can make sure your living space is ready for the warmer days ahead.


Why You Need a Spring Cleaning Checklist

Are you ready for spring cleaning? Whether you’re a busy professional, a parent of young children or just an individual looking to declutter their home, preparing for a successful spring clean-up can be a challenging task. A good spring cleaning checklist will help make the process easier and ensure that all areas of your home are thoroughly cleaned.

What Does a Spring Clean-Up Include?

A spring clean-up is a thorough cleaning of your home that typically includes deep cleaning of areas with either high foot traffic or areas that accumulate lots of dust. It’s important to use products that won’t harm the environment or your health when performing a spring cleaning.

Creating a spring cleaning checklist is the first step to ensuring that your home gets the deep clean it deserves. Here are some of the common areas that should be included in your list:

  • Dusting – Dusting off shelves, tables, chairs, and other furniture can be one of the most tedious tasks during spring cleaning. Make sure to dust off any cobwebs in high corners and crevices too!
  • Vacuuming – Vacuuming carpets and rugs is essential for minimizing dirt.
  • Mopping – Mop tile and wood floors to remove any stubborn dirt or grime.
  • Cleaning Windows – Don’t forget to clean the windows, both inside and outside!
  • Organizing Closets – Make sure to go through your closets and drawers and organize clutter. This includes throwing out any old clothing or items you no longer need.
  • Washing Bedding – Washing all of your bedding is essential for a deep clean. Don’t forget your curtains as well!
  • Deep Cleaning Appliances – Clean the interior of your refrigerator, oven, and dishwasher with an appropriate appliance cleaner.
  • Cleaning Out Gutters – Clogged gutters can lead to damage in the long run, so make sure to check them during spring cleaning.

As you knock out your spring cleaning checklist, consider how you can better prepare your home for guests. Read our helpful guide on the best cleaning methods that’ll have guests wanting to come back to your home as much as possible.

Spring Cleaning Tips to Improve Your Routine

Are you feeling overwhelmed by the thought of spring cleaning? It can be difficult to know where to start when it comes to getting your home ready for the warmer months. Fortunately, there are some simple tips and tricks that can help you get the job done quickly and efficiently. Here are a few of our top spring cleaning tips:

  • Create a plan: Before you begin your spring cleaning, take some time to make a plan of attack. Decide which rooms or areas you want to tackle first, and set realistic goals for what you want to accomplish in each.
  • Start with the big stuff: When it comes to spring cleaning, start with the larger tasks that can take up a lot of time. This means deep cleaning carpets, wiping down walls and baseboards, vacuuming furniture and curtains, and washing windows.
  • Don’t forget the small things: After you’ve tackled the big stuff, make sure to take care of the smaller tasks too. Clean out dust and dirt in the corners, wipe down electronics, and organize drawers and closets.

Busy? Consider Hiring a Cleaning Company

If you don’t have the time or energy to do a deep spring cleaning, hiring a professional cleaning company is always an option. Professional cleaners are experienced in tackling all of the tasks included on a spring cleaning checklist and can help make sure that your home is ready for the upcoming season.

How to Find a Reputable Commercial Cleaning Company

To ensure you find the best service for your needs, there are certain traits you should look for. These include:

  • Reliability and punctuality
  • Use of high-quality cleaning materials and products
  • Flexibility with scheduling
  • Competitively priced services

Additionally, you should take the following steps to select a reputable provider:

  1. Check Reviews – The first step in finding a good commercial cleaning company is to check the reviews. Look for customer reviews, and try to get recommendations from friends or family who have used a particular company in the past.
  2. Ask For References – Ask any potential cleaning companies for references and contact them to find out more about their experience with the company. This will help you make sure they are reliable and trustworthy.
  3. Compare Prices – Different companies offer different prices for their services, so it’s important to compare prices to ensure you’re getting the best deal.
  4. Ensure Quality Control – Make sure that the company you choose has a quality control system in place, as this will ensure that your spring cleaning is done properly and to a high standard.

Dianna was amazing! She was very punctual, thoughtful, and detailed in cleaning and organizing things in our house. She went above and beyond. She really gave us a fresh start after being displaced in our home for the last 4 months with two toddlers and a kitchen remodel and several other dusty and dirty home projects. Thank you so so so much Dianna! God bless you! It feels like a brand new home in here!!!!

She was very nice and went about her work very quietly. All of the rooms were nice and clean. The kitchen and bathroom fixtures all shining like new. Appliances and sinks were nice and shiny. Overall I am very happy with the clean apartment. I love the purple top, just to remind me of the company name. FYI, I just moved in to this apartment in May and have made some tiny improvements in the appearance, but as the years go by, just not able to do all that I wish to do. Glad for the help.

Diana was friendly, efficient, and left our place nice and clean—we had a deep clean from a certain big cleaning company recently and she got spots they missed even though this was a standard clean! So glad we got someone with her level of professionalism. The company communicates well, answers questions quickly, and makes it easy to schedule cleaning.

We signed up with The Purple Maids to provide support for some friends and didn't realize we'd see them in action when we dropped by our friends' home for a little visit last week. Diana was doing beautiful work and it was a delight to see what a blessing she is to our friends! She was very thoughtful with regard to coordinating use of space as she cleaned, and she took time to do some "little extras" that really impressed us. We're so thankful for Diana and The Purple Maids!!

Libby and Florinda did such a thorough and wonderful job. It was my first experience with the service and I’m so thrilled with the job they did. Anastasia and Gloria were great at scheduling me and walking me through the service. 100% recommend!

Excellent results!! I am very impressed. My family and I moved out of a rental and wanted to have it cleaned professionally. I’ll admit that I was a little nervous when only one lady showed up to clean a 2,000 square foot home, but Valaria is an army of one. This girl cleaned every inch in every corner. She didn’t miss a single cob web. And the bill was even on the low end of the quote! I couldn’t be more pleased and I will be booking these folks for all of my future cleaning needs. Thank you Purple Maids!!

Anastasia and her team are wonderful! We have had several cleaning companies clean our house, and they are by far the best, most thorough company we have used! They are so friendly, easy to work with, and payments are easily handled. Would highly recommend!

We started using Purple Maids at multiple multi family housing complexes in Pierce County once the pandemic hit to utilize their Covid-19 disinfecting services in our units. This giving our new tenants ease that their unit has been fully disinfected and sanitized prior to moving in. The staff is professional and responsive from the easy scheduling to the cleaning service they provide. I would highly recommend Purple Maids!
