Spring-cleaning is a seasonal tradition. It’s not too late to make sure the summer season starts with a cleaner, happier home. So open the windows, turn on your favorite song, and continue your spring-cleaning with these to-dos.

Clear the clutter

Removing excess clutter is a great cleaning tip any time of year. Tackle your home room by room and analyze the items you find. If you haven’t used something in a year or more, it’s time for it to go.

Freshen up the floors

If you have carpet, renting a carpet cleaner allows you to tackle the job yourself, saving you money over hiring a professional or purchasing your own machine. And if you have hardwood or tile floors, rent a floor buffer. It’s the easiest way to give your floors back their shine in no time.

Pretty it up with paint


The windows are open and a gentle breeze is moving air through your home. This is the right time to cross that painting project off your to-do list. Small painting projects can be handled with a single can and a brush, but for your larger painting endeavors, rent a paint sprayer. It’s the best way to get an even, professional coat in a short amount of time so you’re finished before the breeze dies down.

Better the baseboards

Baseboards provide a stylish accent to any room in your home, but when they’re dirty, they stand out for all the wrong reasons. To clean them, start by vacuuming your baseboards and scrubbing each with a mixture of dish soap and warm water. Dry each with a towel before wiping them with a dryer sheet. This last step will help repel dust from landing on your baseboards. Plus, it’ll give your home a fresh scent.

Vet the vents

One of the joys of warmer weather is the increase in fresh air that flows through your home — as long as that air is clean. To improve the air quality in your home immediately, clean the vents. Rent a wearable vacuum and you’ll make your reaching points easier without the complications of lugging a traditional model.
