Ambitious Realty Spring Cleaning Checklist
May 19, 2021
Nothing feels more rewarding than getting down to business and properly cleaning your home. As April is upon us, now is the perfect time to do that deep Spring cleaning your home (probably) needs.
We know doing a proper Spring cleaning can feel very overwhelming, so we’ve put together a room-by-room cleaning checklist to help you tackle those must-clean spots in your home.
Crack open those windows, turn up your favourite playlist and let’s get cleaning!
TIP: Dust everything first! Putting water and cleaning solution on dusty surfaces will just spread the dust around!
Dust and clean light fixtures
Dust and clean windows and windowsills thoroughly - vacuum window screens if needed
Dust and clean blinds
Dust curtain rods
Vacuum or launder curtains
Wipe down walls
Vacuum floors and baseboards
Mop floors - remember to change the water frequently! We know it seems like more work, but there is no sense washing your floors with dirty water.
Spot clean or fully shampoo any carpets in need
File or recycle any paperwork
Test smoke detectors and replace batteries as needed
Clean air vents and registers
Replace light bulbs as needed
Sanitize door handles and light switches
Dust and clean doors
Organize shoes and jackets - putting any unneeded winter items into storage
Clean refrigerator - clean and toss all those half full jars in the recycling bin!
Wipe down drawers and shelves in fridge and freezer
Clean out pantry and cupboards - discarding any old or expired items
Clean cabinet doors and hardware
Remove items from cabinets and drawers, dust and wipe once empty
Take stock of cabinet contents - move any infrequently used items into storage to decrease clutter!
Wash dish rags - dispose of any old sponges or brushes
If you have a collection of special items in a cabinet, remove all items, dust or clean if needed
Vacuum or spot clean chair cushions (a portable carpet cleaner is perfect for this!)
Discard any expired or empty personal care items
Properly dispose of any expired medication - never throw medication in the garbage! Pharmacies will often dispose of prescription and over the counter medications properly if you bring them in. You can conduct a quick google search of pharmacies in your area to find one that provides this service.
Declutter and clean vanity
Clean all mirrors
Clean tub and shower
Replace shower curtain liner
Scrub tile grout
Clean washing machine - For those of you with a front loading washing machine, head over to the @gocleanco Instagram account for a full tutorial on how to properly clean it. Fair warning: you will not be able to unsee what you watch and might put cleaning your washing machine at the very top of your Spring cleaning list!
Clean dryer vent
Clean lint trap
Organize laundry supplies, disposing of any empty containers
Organize closets and dressers, putting any unneeded Winter items into storage for next year
Donate any unwanted clothing items
Wash all bedding
Dust and clean all furniture
Wash slipcovers if possible
Wash blankets and pillows
Sanitize remote controls
Dust and clean all decor
Now we understand that some aspects of the cleaning process are a little more daunting than others, for help with your window cleaning, we recommend Enjoy the View Window (www.enjoytheview.ca) cleaning here in Hamilton and Aberdeen Carpet cleaning (www.aberdeencarpetcleaning.ca) for carpet and furniture upholstery cleaning!
BONUS TIP: Don’t feel like you have to tackle this whole list in one weekend – break up the list into manageable groups and before you know it your house will be squeaky clean and ready for a new season!
Fall is finally here and with that comes the chance to alter your wardrobe and change up your style after a summer of florals, bright colours and lightweight fabrics. Bring on the sweaters, coats, and earthy palettes of browns, greens, yellow and more. Trends come and go, but some are classic and timeless. Here are the top 8 trends this fall that you need to watch out for. You may even have these pieces in your closet! If you are looking for inspiration this fall, we have a Pinterest board to help inspire you!
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
