The Imperial Spring Cleaning Checklist for Homeowners

Spring has sprung here on Long Island. As the days get longer and the flowers begin to bloom, it’s time to think about spring cleaning again. If it’s been months since you’ve picked up a mop, you may not even know where to start. To prevent you from getting overwhelmed, Imperial Cleaning Company has put together a handy spring cleaning checklist you can use for reference.

Your 2019 Spring Cleaning Checklist

Spring cleaning is an annual tradition for American homeowners. It’s a time to give a good scrubbing to all the parts of your house that have been neglected in the winter months. Since there can be a lot of square footage to cover, it’s smart to develop a strategy even before you break out the brooms.

Get Prepared to Clean

For starters, you will need to have a full stock of all your favorite cleaning products. You may need to make a trip to the store if your supplies are low. You should also set aside an old pair of clothes that you won’t mind if they get dirty. Since cleaning can be time consuming, you might also want to make a playlist to listen to while working.

Although there are many small tasks you can do yourself, you might need a professional cleaning company if you really want to make your home sparkle.

The Kitchen

The kitchen tends to a room where dust, dirt and grime accumulates over the winter. To look its best, you will need to scrub, sweep and mop it thoroughly.

What to Clean

  • Countertops
  • Faucet
  • Microwave
  • Stove
  • Light fixtures
  • Blinds
  • Ceiling fans
  • Window sills

The Living Room

Your spring cleaning should also focus on making your living room look beautiful. For this job, you will need a broom, a vacuum cleaner, a duster and more.

What to Clean

  • Carpets
  • Hard surface floors
  • Baseboards
  • Upholstery
  • Molding
  • Window screens

While you clean, remember to pay attention to the corners. They tend to trap dust, dirt and sometimes even cobwebs.

The Bathrooms

Bathrooms need a deep, detailed cleaning, because moisture is trapped there on a daily basis, potentially causing mold to grow.

What to Clean

  • Mirror
  • Vanity
  • Toilet bowl
  • Shower doors
  • Shower walls
  • Bathtub
  • Floor
  • Vent covers
  • Sink
  • Shower drain
  • Window sills

  • Carpets
  • Baseboards
  • Hard surface floors
  • Walls
  • Light fixtures
