Ahhhh…Spring. Birds singing. Flowers blooming. Trees budding. Mops mopping. Brooms sweeping. Cloths dusting. Yep, you guessed it. Springtime means it’s time for spring cleaning. If you’re already envisioning hours of backbreaking scrubbing in an all-day clean-a-thon—we’ve got good news for you. Spring cleaning doesn’t have to be an all-day affair. In fact, you can spend just a few minutes a day and have your entire home spic and span by the weekend.

“I like the breaking down of tasks by day so it isn’t so daunting,” explains Keely Stutz, who has owned her own professional cleaning company for the past 12 years. It’s a mind shift, really, according to Stutz. By picking one room a day to deep clean, the task doesn’t seem so overwhelming. Little by little, day by day, your spring cleaning moves forward and your house experiences that deep clean you were hoping for without disrupting your life too much.
