Spring has sprung in Northern California, and it’s the perfect time to shake off the winter blues and refresh your home and yard. This list offers 25 tips to get you started on your spring cleaning extravaganza!

Indoor Cleaning

  • Declutter ruthlessly: Start by sorting through your belongings in every room. Donate, sell, or recycle items you no longer need or use.
  • Deep clean carpets and rugs: Steam cleaning or professional cleaning might be necessary for deep-seated dirt.
  • Wash windows and wipe down blinds: Sunshine is more enjoyable when you can see through the windows clearly!
  • Dust furniture and ceiling fans: Don’t forget to reach cobwebs in corners!
  • Clean out the refrigerator and pantry: Get rid of expired food and organize for better visibility.
  • Wipe down appliances and cabinets: Kitchen grime can build up, so give everything a good scrub.
  • Clean blinds and window treatments: Dust, grime, and allergens can build up on blinds.
  • Wash bedding, pillows, and curtains: Freshen up your sleep space with a thorough wash.
  • Empty and clean vacuum cleaner filters: This ensures optimal cleaning performance.
  • Clean out the fireplace (if applicable): A clean fireplace is ready for cozy spring evenings.

Outdoor Cleaning

  • Clean gutters and downspouts: Remove leaves, debris, and blockages to prevent water damage.
  • Inspect and repair patio furniture: Tighten loose screws, clean surfaces, and replace ripped cushions.
  • Power wash your deck or patio: Get rid of winter grime and mildew for a fresh look.
  • Clean your barbecue grill: Get it ready for spring and summer barbecues.
  • Tackle weeds and overgrown plants: Prepare your flower beds for spring planting.
  • Trim trees and shrubs: Encourage healthy growth and maintain a beautiful shape.
  • Mow and edge your lawn: A well-maintained lawn makes a big difference in curb appeal.
  • Aerate your lawn (optional): This helps improve drainage and root growth, especially in clay soil.
  • Apply a fresh layer of mulch: Mulch helps retain moisture, suppress weeds, and regulate soil temperature.
  • Plant flowers and vegetables: Choose plants that thrive in the Northern California spring climate.
  • Clean and repair outdoor lighting: Ensure your walkways and patio are well-lit for spring evenings.
  • Inspect hoses and sprinklers: Repair any leaks or cracks before the irrigation season begins.
  • Clean outdoor garbage cans and recycling bins: A quick scrub with disinfectant keeps them sanitary.
  • Organize your garage or shed: Declutter and create a designated spot for gardening tools and outdoor equipment.
  • Give your front door a refresh: A new coat of paint or a festive wreath adds a touch of spring cheer.

By following these tips, you can transform your home and yard into a fresh and inviting space to enjoy the beauty of spring in Northern California!
