After the dark and cold of winter, spring makes everything feel better. You can throw open the windows, take a stroll, and ditch those ice scrapers in the back of your trunk.
Still, your house can get pretty crowded and messy after all that time stuck inside. To get you ready for the sun (and maybe a garage sale or two), here’s some of our favorite tips for spring cleaning Sioux Falls and southeastern South Dakota homes.
1. Get Duct Cleaning
Getting your furniture dusted is superb, wiping the tile floors is great, and, if you’re really ambitious, finally cleaning out that catch-all closet is a big win.
But without properly cleaning your ventilation, a lot of dust and particles are just going to settle right back into your space.
Check out this piece on why spring is the optimal time for duct cleaning in Sioux Falls, and help fend off spring allergies!
2. Know Your Cleaners
As we’ve said before, to get the deep-clean that makes all your spring cleaning effort worth it, Sioux Falls homeowners and renters need the right tools. We tackled some cleaning myths in this post so you know how to wield the right products to get the job done.
And speaking of the right products, save a little money for your spring road trip by skipping the name-brand cleaners. You want to pay for the spring cleaning power, not the logo! These DIY cleaner recipes aren’t just cheaper and more eco-friendly – they also work just as well (or better) than the store-bought stuff!
