While I do dream of having a maid someday, the reality is that most busy parents have to do their own spring cleaning. Sure you can have the kids help or the spouse but at the end of the day, it’s usually one adult that keeps that house moving forward with the mission to get spring cleaning over with. Today I wanted to showcase a few Spring Cleaning Tips for the busy parent because let’s face it, life is busy and it’s hard finding time to get that house clean.

Spring Cleaning Tips:
Work from Upstairs to Downstairs
There’s nothing worse than backtracking the dirt and clutter from one location to another. If you have a multi-level house, start with the upstairs and work your way down. If you have a finished basement, you’ll end your spring cleaning mission in that location. This keeps your spring cleaning mission a success because no one will be walking over an already cleaned floor.
Use Multi Purpose Cleaners
There’s nothing that saves time with spring cleaning more than owning multi-purpose cleaners. When you opt to purchase or create multi-purpose cleaners you’ll save a significant amount of time, and money, during your spring cleaning mission.
Assign Tasks to Everyone
Create a list of tasks that need to be done during this spring cleaning family event. Assign tasks to every family member. This cuts down on sibling rivalry and confused children who have no idea what to do next. Each family member should have their own list of tasks to complete during your spring cleaning mission so that you get the job done quicker.
Do Not Mop
The last of the Spring Cleaning Tips is an easy one. Many people have been using mops for centuries but what you don’t realize is that mops leave behind more dirt than they actually pick up. If you have hardwood floors throughout your home, using a mop takes away from your hardwood floor’s ability to shine brightly. Rug Doctor highly recommends using their FlexClean product that was recently launched in April 2018.
