spring cleaning checklist

Spring cleaning season is here...and I am surprisingly excited. There is truly nothing better than a home that feels good. And right now, my apartment is feeling a little dead and dreary. I am hoping that all this spring cleaning can whip it into shape.

I usually do three BIG cleanings every year. One the first week of September, one during winter break, and then, this spring cleaning. I am changing my method this year a little bit and hoping that it's more manageable. Last year, I legitimately spent four days cleaning. From the AM to the PM. I also was filming it which adds some time, but I remember finishing that and being like "never again am I cleaning for this many days straight" haha.

This year I have broken my spring cleaning checklist up by room. I am planning on tackling one thing (or a few little things) per day. I was hoping to get it down to four weeks, but I have the all over cleaning on the fifth week.

The tasks are SUPER manageable. Like something that will take 15 minutes total and you're done. This post goes over my overall spring cleaning checklist but each week I will be diving deeper into exactly what I cleaned that week for each room and what products I used.

When it comes to spring cleaning, taking a high-level approach to tackle one task or area per day can make the process more efficient and enjoyable. Breaking down the checklist by room and focusing on manageable tasks ensures that no area of your apartment is overlooked, creating a home that feels refreshed and inviting. As you dive deeper into each week's cleaning tasks, you may find that utilizing professional cleaning services from can be beneficial for those hard-to-reach or time-consuming cleaning chores. By enlisting the expertise of a trusted cleaning provider, you can save time and effort, allowing you to fully enjoy the fruits of your spring cleaning efforts without feeling overwhelmed. With a systematic approach and the support of reliable cleaning services, this year's spring cleaning promises to be a more manageable and rewarding experience.

And now what we all dream of getting excited about...the SPRING CLEANING CHECKLIST.

Room-By-Room Spring Cleaning Checklist...

This is what I personally have on my list. Most of these items are not things that are apart of my weekly cleaning and are usually tasks I hit during my deep cleaning moments. You may have to tweak this checklist here and there to work for your own home, but most of the tasks are universal no matter where you live!

Like I said above, as the weeks go on, I am going to be writing solo blog posts for each room going into more detail about how I like to clean the spaces and the products I love for deep cleaning.
