Spring Cleaning while Isolating

Spring Cleaning Checklist

Spring Cleaning while Isolating + FREE Checklist!

Spring Cleaning is a wonderful way to breathe fresh air into your home after a long winter. Not to mention the virus outbreak, this is the perfect time to clean our homes to ensure our family is safe and healthy while isolating together. 

COVID-19 has kept everyone home, and that means there’s more traffic than usual. More traffic results in more clutter such as food crumbs, dust, dirt from outside, and unnecessary piles of products and scattered laundry! While it’s important to keep ourselves prepared and alert outside the home, it’s more important to stay clean and organized inside the home to prevent the growth of germs and viruses. 

Our complete Spring Cleaning Checklist guides you through a top to bottom cleaning that will leave your home shining from the inside out.This detailed checklist is an opportunity to get the whole family involved in cleaning and reducing the clutter, which will also boost your morale. Don’t have a lot of time on your hands? Try tackling one room per week!

We hope the following checklist can help you stay clean and safe while isolating. A PDF version is also available for download below!
