Spring has sprung (well, kind of if you discount the feet of snow in your front yard)! It’s time to wage war on dust bunnies with a yearly cleaning routine that leaves you and your family feeling fresh.
But spring cleaning is about more than just cleaning—it’s also good for your health. The practice is an ancient Jewish custom that ensured all non-kosher remnants were removed by Passover. Now, spring cleaning is done to refresh your home from dust and dirt and improve air quality following the winter months when windows cannot be left open to let in fresh air.
Here are the 10 tasks you should add to your spring cleaning to do list this year…
- Change your air filters

- Change batteries in your fire alarm and carbon monoxide detectors
- Clean your laundry units
- Flip your mattress
- Clean out your fridge and freezer
- Wipe down your kitchen cabinets
- Wash throw blankets/linens from common areas
- Clean and disinfect your phones, tablets, and computers

Take this opportunity to refresh your space and prepare for the warmer weather ahead!
