Vacuuming is essential to keeping your home clean and reducing the amount of dust mites in your house. It also helps to freshen the air and reduce respiratory problems. To vacuum your bedroom properly, start in the furthest corner and slowly move horizontally through the room (about two feet per second). Overlap each pass slightly until the entire room has been covered with the cleaner. Vaccum your floor and carpet of your bedroom for maximum cleanliness.
Your bedroom is a place where you sleep, so it’s important to keep it clean and organized, especially this spring. The best way to do this is with a routine that’s quick and efficient. One of the first things you should do when cleaning your bedroom is dust it. It’s a great way to remove the surface dirt and grime that has collected from the other cleaning steps you’ve taken so far. Be sure to wipe the dust of your nightstand, lampshade, clear out your drawer, and other bedroom furniture.
Whether you opt for daily or seasonal cleaning, a bedroom that is dust-free helps you sleep better. Excessive dust can cause respiratory issues and aggravate allergies. Sweep your floors, and then use a microfiber cloth on the end of a long-handled duster to remove dirt and cobwebs from the corners of your room. Once everything is dry, wipe down furniture and other surfaces to make sure they are free of dust, allergens, bacteria, and grime.
Clean the Closet
One of the biggest sources of clutter in your bedroom is your closet. Get it organized and pared down. Using a decluttering method, such as the Reverse Hanger Trick or One In, One Out rule, separate clothes into keep, donate, sell and toss piles. Donate items you haven’t worn in a year, or any clothing with holes or extreme wear. Shoes also need to go if they’re no longer in good condition, or have worn soles.
Wash Bed Linens
Your bedroom is your sanctuary and it should be clean, tidy and free from clutter to create a relaxing space. A dirty, cluttered bedroom can disrupt sleep and can negatively impact your mood and health. Taking the time to wash your bedding is a must. Check your linens’ care tags for instructions on how often to wash them, but generally, a couple of full rinses should do the trick.
Clean the Mattress
One of the best ways to get a fresh, clean bedroom is to vacuum your mattress. It’s a great way to get rid of dust mites and dead skin cells, as well as other contaminants that can build up on your mattress over time. Vacuum the surface of your mattress using a wide-brush attachment. This will get into all the seams and crevices where dirt, dust, hair, and other particles can be trapped. Once you’ve vacuumed the surface, use a commercial stain remover to get rid of any spills or stains that may have occurred over time. You can also use a solution of 1 teaspoon mild dish detergent and 1 cup warm water to spot clean any stains on the mattress.
Clean the Window
Cleaning your bedroom windows is an important part of spring cleaning because it helps get rid of dirt and grime that inevitably build up over time. Dirty windows are often a result of environmental factors, including pollen, rain droplets, sap-producing trees and birds, passing cars, and if you live near the ocean, caked-on salt. Clean all areas of your windows including window sills. You can use a microfiber to clean the window area.
Wash the Curtains
Curtains aren’t just for privacy and sound dampening, they also can help block out the sun’s glare, light up a room and even add a touch of warmth. Well for this spring, maybe you should wash and replace your curtains. Using lighter curtains will make your bedroom looks more comfortable this spring.
Dust the Ceiling and Baseboards
Ceiling moldings and baseboards can collect a lot of dust, making them difficult to keep clean. They also are often overlooked and neglected during typical weekly cleaning tasks, so this is a great time to get into those nooks and crannies. Start by vacuuming these surfaces, then use a long-handled dust brush or electrostatic duster to remove the accumulated debris. You can also use a solution of water, dish soap and vinegar to deep clean these surfaces.
