These are great tips. I love a good spring cleaning. I clean out the pantry, clean the carpets, clean out the closets and swap winter clothes for summer clothes, and more, and it just feels so good to have a clean, fresh home! I will be sure to follow this lost when I start cleaning.

Your checklist will definitely help make Spring and Fall not feel so long that I have to count the days until they are over. This will give me something to do and give me an excuse to hopefully hire some carpet cleaners near me so I can finally get this dander out of my carpet once and for all…hopefully. Thank you so much again for this! I can already see it making my days go by so much faster.
