Now that spring is just around the corner, it is the time for some spring-cleaning. This will spruce up your apartment and make it all ready for summer. Here are a few things that you can do to spring clean.

Organization:

Some things can get misplaced in the hustle and bustle of the busy semester. Going through and organizing things can be beneficial. Throwing things out makes room for new things that you may want to buy.  Donating things is better for other people who are less fortunate. Having less clutter can make life a lot easier.

Airing it out:

Having things all shut up makes the house feel damp and stuffy. Open those windows and let the spring air and sunshine in.  This is a great way to get ready for the nice weather.  Along with opening the windows and washing your draperies or blinds will help clear the dust out of the house.

Shampooing the carpets:

Salt and slush from the winter snow has probably left a lasting mark on your carpets. Renting a shampooer is easy and pretty inexpensive. You can rent it for the day and do it. It will not only make your carpets look clean but it will make your place smell fresh too.

Clean out your refrigerator and pantry:

The fridge is a place which can get neglected and old food may be hiding in the back. This is a great time to clean this stuff out. You can also check all the condiments’ expiration dates on the door of the fridge.

These are just a few things that you can do to spring-clean. Making sure to do these things will help refresh your house.
