Now that spring has arrived, many are becoming more aware that it’s time for some spring cleaning. There may be those who are looking around their home and beginning to feel a bit overwhelmed. You may not know where to start. No problem. Baker Sandoval Cleaning has put together a spring cleaning checklist for you to follow or get a better hold of where to start as you go through room by room. After you are done with all your spring cleaning you will be amazed how beautiful and clean your home will be.
Spring Cleaning Checklist
Clean Walls & Ceilings – You can use a vacuum or even a duster with an extension handle to remove the dust from off of your ceiling and walls. It is always good to start from the top allowing any dust to settle as you clean on an already dirty floor. It is recommended you start to clean in the highest places first, such as walls and ceilings. After you have dusted and if you’re able to reach (you may need a ladder) use a damp cloth to even wash and scrub away any stains off of your walls. While you’re cleaning the ceiling you may want to change the batteries in smoke detectors.
Window & Window Screen Cleaning – Next you will want to clean windows on the in and outside of your home. It doesn’t matter which one you choose to do first. Inside you can start with a bucket of soapy water and a sponge. Wash the entire window, and then use a dry cloth to wipe them down followed by using a glass cleaner to remove the last of the streaks. When doing the outside of the window, take the screens off and rinse them first with a garden hose. While you still have the hose in hand, spray down the window with the hose to remove as much dirt as possible. Once again, use soapy water and a sponge to clean the window. You can use a hose to rinse them again and a dry cloth to wipe them down. Glass cleaner can be used afterward to clean the streaks and give you a clear glass window. Afterward, put the screens back on.
Cleaning Light Fixtures – Still working your way downward from the ceiling, clean the light fixtures. Remove glass covers or tulips and soak them in soapy water. Wipe down the surface and clean the blades of ceiling fans. Rinse off the glass covers and put them back in place after drying.
Furniture & Knick-Knack Polishing – Next dust and polish furniture. Any items made of glass or porcelain can be soaked in soapy water, rinsed, and set them aside to dry as you clean your furniture. Upholsteries should bb vacuumed and cleaned. Make sure you read the label to properly clean the fabric. Curtains should also be taken down and washed.
Cleaning Floors – Carpets need to be vacuumed and steamed or dry-chem cleaned. Tile floors should be swiped and mopped. Some will also suggest that now is the time to re-grout tile floors at least every few years. Wooden floors need to be polished. You may need to reseal them if they are beginning to look worn or faded from high traffic.

While you’re doing a top to bottom cleaning you may want to go through cabinets, drawers and other storage areas. Begin to discard the broken or unusable items. For items you no longer want but are in good condition you might consider donating them. If you’re still feeling overwhelmed with all the cleaning that needs doing, or if you don’t have the time or the physical capability to do it yourself, contact Baker Sandoval Cleaning. We can provide a thorough cleaning of your home.
