Spring is in full swing and now is a great opportunity to refresh your living space with a good spring cleaning. Since we’re remaining indoors more than ever, it’s the perfect time to give your home a deep cleaning—including those nooks and crannies you may have neglected or messes that may have accumulated—so you can live and work in a space that best supports your health and wellbeing.
As you set out to clean your home from top to bottom, it may be a little overwhelming at first to tackle the tasks. Neato has you covered with our top five spring cleaning tips.
Tip 1: Create a Spring Cleaning Checklist
Create a list of cleaning tasks that you want to complete. Write them down, note them on your phone, add them to a calendar—use any tracking system that works for you. The key is documenting the steps you’ll need to take so you can hold yourself accountable.
Tip 2: Set Up a Schedule
Set up a schedule based on your list of cleaning tasks and create a routine that you can stick to. For example, you can spend 15 minutes cleaning the kitchen counter and surfaces one day, 30 minutes doing laundry another, and tackle one big task like cleaning the bathroom over the weekend. You can also schedule your Neato through the mobile app to stay on your schedule and vacuum your entire home or specific zones whenever you’d like it to.
Tip 3: Get a Helping Hand
Automate as much as possible, offloading or making tasks easier where you can. Your Neato can help with vacuuming—including hard-to-reach places and deep into corners—and with turbo mode, it can boost suction power to pick up pet hair, tough debris, and heightened allergens that come with springtime.
Tip 4: Make it Fun
Put on your favorite music, podcast, or show to pump your mood while you refresh your space. Cleaning doesn’t have to be a chore. Some even find it therapeutic. Regardless of your views, know that investing time and energy into cleaning your space is an investment in you. Making it fun along the way is an easy, added bonus!
Tip 5: Reward Yourself
Reward yourself after you’re done cleaning. Sit and relax, grab a drink, do some yoga, eat your favorite dessert, play a video game. Do something that makes you happy to celebrate a job well done and don’t forget to enjoy your new, clean space.
We hope these tips help you tackle spring cleaning and beyond. It’s more important than ever to prioritize your health and your wellbeing, and having a clean home can be a critical aspect of doing so. As you get started, Neato is here to help.
