The Ultimate Spring Cleaning Checklist

If fall and winter are a great time to clean in preparation for a bunch of time spent indoors, spring is a great time to clean because of all that time spent indoors. In fact, the practice of spring cleaning dates back centuries and has cultural and religious roots that span the globe. 

The turning of the season is an excellent time to refresh and reset your space, maintain areas that require less frequent but still necessary cleaning, give some extra attention to items that may be put away for the season, and prepare items that will get pulled out for the warmer days ahead.
