Lastly, clean all your laundry baskets and put away clothes and linens where they belong.
Clean the Ceilings and Walls
Start from the top to the bottom. This way all the dirt and dust is wiped away instead of having it getting clean areas dirty over and over. You can use a handheld and adjustable cleaning mop to do the ceiling. Wipe away dust from ceiling lights and get all the cobwebs cleaned away.
It’s not often your home’s walls get a good cleaning. Spring cleaning is a perfect time to wipe down your walls. It removes dirty marks and dust from daily traffic. Likewise, give art work a more thorough cleaning than your weekly dusting. Carefully wipe glass and frames with a glass cleaner and cloth. Artificial, silk floral wreaths can be gently washed in warm water and a bit of dish detergent in your bathtub.
Vacuum Cleaning is the Key
Vacuuming floors gets all the dirt, grit, grass tracked in from outside and food crumbs dropped during snacking. You can use a powerful and smart vacuum cleaner that removes all that pet hair along with grime, while cleaning the air. Moreover, vacuum cleaners are portable and supremely mobile to stroll around. Cleaningpicks has some wonderful articles about vacuum cleaning.
While you’re vacuuming, make sure to get to the edges, corners, and behind furniture. That’s where the dust hides from the quick weekly sweeping. And, you might find where all your pet’s toys have disappeared.

Staying green means opt for natural cleaning. And in this regard nothing compares to steam cleaning. Without adding any harmful chemical you can get rid of the gross grimes and grits easily.
Meantime, you are saving money as you no longer need expensive detergents. A steam mop works well on both wood and tile, cleaning them without the worry of water damage.
Give your Attention to the Kitchen, walls and windows!
Lastly, clean the kitchen sinks, faucets, walls and windows. Use mild soap, soak a soft sponge into it and start scrubbing the mess from all over the mentioned places.
Sometimes, you are going to notice sticky and stubbornly grease over the kitchen walls. In this case, use a strong dispenser.
