Now that spring is almost here, you’re probably looking to reassess the clutter that’s settled in your space over the long course of winter, and find new ways to use your space that also feel fresh and exciting. Here are a few spring-cleaning project ideas to get you excited for the long-awaited thaw.

At last, winter is nearing its end and the time has arrived to start thinking about spring cleaning. Whether your winters bring you rain or snow, the season can be notoriously brutal on your home’s interiors and exteriors, wreaking havoc and damage by way of melting water, salt, and grit that manages to find its way into every nook and cranny.

Now that spring is almost here, you’re probably looking to reassess the clutter that’s settled in your space over the long course of winter, and find new ways to use your space that also feel fresh and exciting. Here are a few spring-cleaning project ideas to get you excited for the long-awaited thaw.

Deep Clean Your Floors

No matter what kind of floors you have in your home—solid hardwood, engineered hardwood, laminate, or some other material—they’ve inevitably taken a beating over the course of the winter. Just think about all things you likely tracked indoors by way of your boots —the chances are high that you’ve got some cleaning to do to get your floors freshened up for spring and summer.

For hardwood floors, use a damp (not wet!) mop with a special hardwood cleaner to pick up all of the grime that isn’t easily swept up. Consider a full cleaning set, like LL Flooring’s Bellawood Floor Care Maintenance Kit, which comes with a bottle of Bellawood floor cleaner, a mop head and handle, washable wet mop microfiber pad and dry mop pad, plus a variety pack of felt pads. The Bellawood Floor Cleaner is GREENGUARD Gold Certified, urethane-safe, and won't leave a dull-streaky residue on your floors.

Dust Everything

Once the ice thaws and temperatures start climbing, it’s time to throw open your windows and dust off every surface within reach. You would be surprised what can collect dust, so don’t consider any surface safe. From your furniture to your light fixtures, walls, and baseboards, cleaning off the dust that’s settled throughout winter will make your home instantly feel bright and shiny.

Tackle Your Kitchen

We know, we know—deep cleaning the kitchen is a huge pain. Removing cooked-on grease and food residue from your stoves, ovens, and microwaves requires some (figurative) elbow grease, and going through your refrigerator and freezer can be an unwelcome lesson in food waste.

But diving in to deep clean your kitchen can do wonders to make the space feel fresh and renewed for a new season.

Start by making a checklist to bite off smaller projects, with items such as:

•    Polish cabinetry
•    Clean out refrigerator and wipe shelves
•    Defrost freezer
•    Scrub down stovetop
•    Set oven to self-clean
