Spring cleaning is an opportunity to deep-clean your home and give it a fresh start for the new season. But if we don’t narrow down what needs to be done, it can feel very daunting. 

Before you begin your spring cleaning, take some time to make a plan. This will help you stay organized and avoid feeling overwhelmed. 

How to make a Spring Clean Checklist and Tackle it like a Pro

Step 1: Make a Spring Clean List of Tasks

Make a comprehensive spring clean list of all the tasks that need to be done. You can use our list below as a starting point and add on anything specific to your space. 

Step 2: Prioritize Tasks

Once you have your list of tasks, prioritize them based on how important they are and how much time they will take. You may want to tackle the most time-consuming tasks first to get them out of the way.

Step 3: Schedule Your Cleaning

Create a schedule for your cleaning tasks, breaking them down into manageable chunks. You may want to dedicate a weekend or a few days to your spring cleaning, or you may want to spread it out over a few weeks. Choose whatever you know will work with your own productivity style. 

Step 4: Declutter and Donate

Before you begin the actual cleaning process, it's essential to declutter your home. Start by going through each room and removing any items you no longer need or want. Sort items into three piles: keep, donate, and recycle. This process will help you create a more organized and visually appealing space, making cleaning easier in the long run. 

Step 5: Room-by-Room Spring Cleaning Checklist

Now that you have a plan of attack, it's time to get down to the nitty-gritty of cleaning. Here's a room-by-room spring cleaning checklist to help you get started:
