Spring cleaning essentials

With the spring season just right around the corner, it’s time for us to start planning the big spring cleaning. After a few months of cold weather, the house deserves a deep clean and maintenance check. So, here is a list of all the essential cleaning tasks you should put on the list if you want your spring cleaning to be a total success.

Start with the Kitchen

The kitchen, more than anything else, deserves a good and thorough inspection and a deep clean. Starting with the kitchen sink that tends to be home to the most bacteria and germs, you should be prepared to roll up your sleeves and get your most reliable kitchen cleaning supplies. That will include: all-purpose cleaner, oven cleaner, stainless steel cleaner, microfiber cloth, scrubbing sponges, and so on. 

The kitchen sink hoards so much food waste that ends up going down the drain most of the time. Not only does this create amazing conditions for growing bacteria, but it can also clog up your water pipes. So, make sure to take your time during the spring cleaning to inspect the pipes, get them unclogged and thoroughly clean the whole sink. 

You also need to take care of the fridge. Make sure to get it checked to see if it needs any repairing. Also, go through the food in your fridge to see if there are any expired foods you should get rid of. While you are doing that, make sure to clean the fridge nicely both on the outside and inside. 


Some of the essential cleaning supplies for the bathroom that you will require are all-purpose cleaner, toilet brush, grout brush, and grout and tile cleaner. Bathroom can be another place where bacteria ca grow and thrive mostly due to the moist that can build up in the bathroom if it doesn’t have enough airflow. So, make sure you get some fresh air in and deep clean the entire bathroom. Also, check to see if there are any potential water leaks that need to be attended to. It’s better to fix them before they grow into a bigger issue. 

Pest control

Many households in Australia make it a priority to get a full house inspection for insects and pests when the spring is about to start. By doing so, you will make sure your house is clean, pest-free and protected from pest infection. It’s very important to keep your house pest-free if you want it to be durable and it’s also important for protecting your and your family’s health. So, once you start with the spring cleaning process, you can rely on professionals to provide high-quality pest control services in Sydney and get your house thoroughly examined for you. They will check to see if your house is infected or not. In case it is infected, they will be able to provide the most effective long-term solution that will help you get rid of the pests.

The backyard

If you have a garden in the backyard, this is the perfect time for you to go check on it and make sure everything is ready for the spring season. Get your gardening gloves on, prepare the soil and get the rest of the gardening equipment. Then, you are ready to prepare the grounds for your lovely colourful plants and flowers. While you’re taking care of the garden, make sure to mow the lawn and water it thoroughly. Also, you should check to see if there are any weeds that need to be pulled out so that you garden can be clean and decluttered. 

The gutters

Lastly, don’t forget about the gutters. They tend to get stuffed with tons of dirt, debris, leaves and other stuff during colder weather, especially if it’s windy in your area. So make sure you check the gutters and unclog them so they can work properly when it rains. 


All in all, there are several most important segments of the house that need to be prioritized for the spring cleaning. These essential include cleaning the kitchen sink, disinfecting the bathroom, doing pest control, taking care of the garden, and cleaning out the gutters. This list will help you stay on top of your spring cleaning chores.
