As the winter winds slow down and the flowers begin to bloom, it’s that time of year again to welcome the freshness of spring into your new home in Delaware. Spring cleaning isn’t just about tidying up, though, it’s an opportunity to rejuvenate your living space and prepare for the brighter days ahead. At Wilkinson Homes, we understand the importance of a clean and organized home, which is why we’ve curated the top five spring cleaning tips to help you revitalize your living space. 

Declutter and organize

First, you’ll want to start your spring cleaning journey by decluttering each room in your home. Take the time to sort through belongings and donate, recycle or discard items that you no longer need or use. Once you’ve sifted through your belongings, it’s time to organize them effectively. Consider the layout and flow of each room, aiming for a balance between functionality and aesthetics, and invest in storage solutions like bins, baskets and shelves to maximize vertical space and minimize clutter. 

Deep clean floors and carpets

Throughout the winter months especially, the weather can take a toll on your floors and carpets, accumulating dust, dirt and grime. This is the perfect time to give your floors a thorough cleaning by vacuuming carpets, sweeping hardwood floors and mopping tiled areas. For a deeper clean, you could also take this time to rent a carpet cleaner or hire a professional carpet cleaning service. Freshly cleaned floors not only enhance the appearance of your home but also contribute to a healthier indoor environment. 

Refresh upholstery and bedding

All of your upholstery and bedding also deserve some attention during spring cleaning, so you can start by removing all cushion covers, pillowcases and bedding to either wash or dry clean them. Then, take the time to vacuum your mattress, sprinkle a layer of baking soda over it to sit for a few hours to remove any moisture or order and thoroughly vacuum it once more for a truly effective clean. For upholstered furniture, a fabric cleaner is your best choice, and a gentle yet effective cleaner can work wonders in lifting dirt and grime to restore your furniture’s appearance and make it as good as new. Once everything is clean, use a vacuum with an upholstery attachment to remove any remaining debris from the corners. 

Clean and organize storage areas

Don’t forget to tackle storage areas such as closets, cabinets and pantries during your spring cleaning routine. Remove everything from shelves and surfaces, wiping them down with a damp cloth or gentle cleaner, and then take the opportunity to reorganize your storage spaces—grouping similar items together and labeling containers for easy identification. During this, you might even want to maximize your vertical space with stackable bins and adjustable shelving to make the most of your storage areas. 

Freshen up windows and window treatments

Let the sunshine in this spring by giving your windows and window treatments some TLC. Clean all of the windows in your home from inside and out using a glass cleaner and lint-free cloth to remove dirt and streaks. Wash or dust curtains, blinds and drapes to eliminate dust buildup and odors, and consider switching out heavy winter curtains for lightweight fabrics that allow natural light to filter through. Clean windows not only improve your home’s appearance but also enhance natural lighting and energy efficiency.
