Spring Cleaning is the annual practice of freshening up, cleaning and reorganizing the home after what seems like a never-ending winter. Don’t let spring cleaning projects overwhelm you this year! ezStorage has put together a great guide to help you with your spring cleaning projects room-by-room as well as teach you a bit of history about this annual event.
In a recent study by the American Cleaning Institute, 62% of American households do some sort of spring cleaning projects, with women (at 50%) doing the majority of the cleaning. It can take one week to many (depending on time constraints) to complete all of the projects on the spring cleaning checklist. The kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms are the high priority rooms when doing spring cleaning and most people pay extra attention to cleaning windows, blinds and ceiling fans. When there are multiple people working on the list, the projects get completed much quicker. Spring cleaning can be a daunting task and most people just don’t want to do it. If you break down the project into smaller bits and just do one room at a time, then it is not as daunting and can be completed.
ezStorage created the Ultimate Spring Cleaning Checklist Infographic to get you ready for the 2014 spring cleaning season. We’ve broken down a house full of spring cleaning “to dos” into a cleaning checklist by room as well as give some DIY spring cleaning tips to make the jobs easier. If you are re-organizing a room, don’t forget to utilize the sorting process. Remove all of the items from the room first and then sort them into the following piles (or boxes): keep in the room, donate items, store items, or throw away unwanted items. ezStorage has 45 locations in the Washington D.C., Baltimore, and Northern Virginia area that can help you with your storage needs from packing and moving supplies to storage units for those items that you just can’t give or throw away from your spring cleaning projects.
Find out more about the history of spring cleaning and get helpful spring cleaning ideas and tips from this ezStorage Infographic. The Infographic includes a spring cleaning checklist by room to ensure your entire house is spotless for the warmer months of the year.
