Spring is here, just a perfect time for cleaning away a mess after a long winter. Getting rid of all the things that you can live without will help you benefit from a space that can actually breathe, especially if you have a baby. No matter how much you hate it, it has to be done. You need to admit, there is no better feeling than spending time in a completely clean house. And, this should be your main motivation for a spring deep clean. Whether it is your first spring cleaning in Canberra or you have already used to do it, here are some tips that will make your whole experience easier and quicker.

Regardless of the size your property, a small apartment or a 5 bedroom house, thorough planning should be the essential part of your spring cleaning in Canberra. For your annual deep clean, it is important that you do not leave any space out, including the garage, wardrobes, laundry rooms, etc. Once you have listed all the places that should be cleaned, make sure that you get all necessary equipment, including cloths, rags, mops and cleaning products. In case you have a baby, make sure that you go for baby safe cleaning detergents which can easily be found at affordable prices.

Once you begin cleaning, go through each room and check if there is anything outdated or you no longer use. This includes yours as well as your baby’s clothes, old magazines, empty boxes, etc. Most things can probably be donated to charities which will give you a peace of mind knowing that your stuff will end up somewhere where it will be more useful.

If your house has more than one floor, always clean the upper floors first. Use the same rule for individual rooms – start your cleaning from the ceiling and head down to the floors. This way, you will prevent dirt returning to the surfaces you have already cleaned. 

You clean you house thoroughly once or twice a year. This is why you should pay attention to each detail in every room before moving to the next. To be more efficient, set a time frame for cleaning each room and focus only on that.

Start with your cleaning as early as possible, so you can finish early without putting off some unpleasant tasks till the next day. If you are prone to procrastination, then it would be much better to hire a professional cleaning company to finish the work more effectively. This will also help you spend some more precious time with your baby.
