Spring Cleaning Checklist for Your Home - Garrison and Garrison

Spring Cleaning Checklist for Your Home

Spring is in the air, and it’s time to get your home in tip-top shape by spring cleaning! Give your home a fresh look to help it blossom with the season by decluttering, deep cleaning, and refreshing your space. Follow our spring cleaning checklist to guide you through the process of giving your home a thorough springtime makeover. 

Start with a Plan

Spring cleaning can feel like a daunting task, and we often wonder where we should start. Before diving into the cleaning process, it is crucial to start with a plan of action. Decide which areas of your home will require more attention and prioritize your tasks. Break down chores room by room, and consider tackling one area each day to make the process more manageable. 

Declutter First

Now that you have made your plan, start by decluttering your home room by room. Sort through your belongings and categorize them into groups to keep, donate, sell, or throw away. Ensure that you are not keeping unnecessary items and be ruthless—less clutter means less to clean and organize later on.

Supplies You’ll Need For Cleaning

After you have decluttered your rooms, next up is ensuring you have all the necessary spring cleaning supplies. Be sure to gather your supplies before you start cleaning to help the process move smoothly.

  • Microfiber cloths
  • All-purpose cleaner
  • Glass cleaner
  • Baking soda
  • White vinegar
  • Disinfectant wipes
  • Duster
  • Vacuum cleaner
  • Mop and bucket
  • Sponges and scrub brushes

Room-by-Room Checklist

Up next, cleaning! Choose the room you would like to start with and get to scrubbing! 


We spend a lot of time in our kitchens, which results in general wear and tear to this area in our homes. Be sure to give your kitchen the love and attention it deserves and help it shine. 

  • Empty and clean the refrigerator and freezer.
  • Clean the oven, stovetop, and microwave.
  • Wipe down cabinets and pantry shelves.
  • Descale coffee machines and kettles.
  • Organize drawers and discard old utensils.

Bathrooms & Laundry Room

Next on your spring cleaning checklist are the bathrooms. By organizing and cleaning your bathroom and laundry room, you will be able to feel refreshed when getting ready for work or an evening out! 

  • Scrub the shower, bathtub, and toilet.
  • Clear out the medicine cabinet and responsibly dispose of expired products.
  • Wash or replace shower curtains and bathmats.
  • Clean mirrors and countertops.
  • Clean the washing machine and dryer, including lint traps.
  • Organize laundry supplies and discard empty containers.


Decluttering and cleaning your bedrooms will return them to their original purpose–a place for rest and relaxation. 

  • Launder all bedding, including pillows and duvets.
  • Dust furniture, picture frames, windows, and light fixtures.
  • Organize closets and donate clothes you no longer wear.
  • Vacuum and flip the mattress.
  • Clean Baseboards and crown moldings

Living Areas

Last on the list for spring cleaning indoors are the remaining living spaces of your home. Be sure to clean your living room, office spaces, studies, sunrooms, or bonus rooms. 

  • Dust and clean all surfaces, including desks, computer equipment, windowsills, bookshelves and TV stands.
  • Clean upholstery and vacuum beneath cushions.
  • Launder throw blankets and wash decorative pillow covers.
  • Tidy up electronics and manage cords.
  • Organize paperwork and shred unneeded documents. 

Outdoor Areas

With the beauty of spring, comes spending more time outdoors. Now that your home is pristine on the inside, it’s time to take our spring cleaning outdoors! Clean all of your outdoor living spaces to prepare for the warmer weather. 

  • Sweep and wash decks and patios.
  • Clean outdoor furniture and freshen up cushions.
  • Tidy the garden and trim any overgrown plants.
  • Consider planting spring flowers to brighten your home. 

Don’t Forget the HVAC System

While you are moving through your spring cleaning checklist, don’t forget to check the status of your HVAC system. As the weather warms up, you want to ensure your home is equipped to keep you and your family cool and comfortable. 

  • Schedule a routine maintenance appointment. 
  • Change your air filters. 
  • Clear away any debris from your outdoor unit. 
  • Consider an air purification system to remove allergens including pollen, dirt, pet dander, and debris from your home. 

Celebrate Your Hard Work

After all the scrubbing, dusting, and organizing, take a moment to enjoy your refreshed home. Light a scented candle, put up some new decor, or simply relax in your newly cleaned space.

Spring cleaning can be an overwhelming task, but with this guide, you will be well-equipped to tackle it head-on. Roll up your sleeves, turn up the music, and get ready to rejuvenate your home for the season ahead!
