Spring Cleaning Checklist & Tips
Dated: March 30 2020
Ahh. Spiring finally has sprung in Nashville! We love the feeling of rebirth & renewal that comes with budding trees, flowers, crisp air, and longer days with more sunshine. Traditionally, this time of renewal has been used to deep-clean our homes. Who doesn't love a clean, tidy house? Not only does a clean and organized home feel great, but it also helps you prep to sell, if listing your home is a goal this year. Many of us are staying safer at home right now anyways, so why not make the most of it by making our home happier and healthier.
Our list tackles every room in your house – from bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen to the living room. If it seems like it's a lot to do, try breaking it down by doing one room a day for the next week.
