A Spring Cleaning Giveaway for Your Home Sweet Home Canada

It’s time to turn away from winter blues and take a fresh deep breath into spring. Looks like Mother Nature has yet to get the memo but she soon will.

The annual spring cleaning is upon us again, and to make your transition into the new season a breeze, here are some quick tips with a must-have giveaway for the occasion.

Tip #1: Call in for extra troops

Fighting off greasy stains, tough mildew, and stubborn odours will require an additional set of hands – so make this a family affair and grab as many troops as you can! When it comes down to it, you’re not the only one living under the roof. Children have lots of energy and are fully capable of age appropriate chores.

Tip #2: Take your time

Remember that while adrenaline may be rushing to get your house looking spotless, it’s wise to spread out a large project like this between a few days. The season is here to stay so no need to panic! The last thing you want is an injury to welcome you into spring. After all the only deadlines we have are the ones we put on ourselves.

Tip #3: Map it out

Organize, organize, organize! Work from the top down, inside to outside, and keep an agenda to prioritize. Allocating rooms to each person (or doing it one at a time by yourself) will also avoid unfinished tasks. Setting this up at the beginning will make the process so much quicker and more efficient. Most of all do not start a bunch of jobs, start one and finish completely before starting another.

Tip #4: Have fun

Turn on the radio, lay out a few snacks and don’t take it too seriously! Celebrate the season of greener grasses and sunny weathers (without the sweat and sunburns). When cleaning I often find hidden treasures I thought were gone for good. Take your time and you may just be pleasantly surprised at what treasures you find.

Your family’s living space deserves only the best – after all, where else can you unwind and call it your very own home sweet home?

Lets all hope that May is more promising than April for the weather and we can actually get outside and clean up the yard.

  10. I dislike doing the walls the most, probably because i have to take everything hanging on them off and put it all back!

  11. Dayna Wilson says

  40. I'm not big into spring cleaning, I try to keep the house clean and tackle large tasks whenever I feel like they need to be done, not necessarily in the spring…wiping down all doors and knobs is next on my list though!
