The winter blues can make it difficult to stay on top of your cleaning schedule. But spring is the perfect time to get back into your routine and whip your home into shape.

A spring cleaning overhaul reduces allergens, de-clutters and organizes your home so you’re ready to start fresh in the summer. To really clean your home, consider including your furniture in your cleaning overhaul. The following are some suggestions for including your furniture this spring:

Move your big furniture out of the way.

If you really want to clean your entire home, you can’t just assume that the dust settling underneath your couch is out of sight, out of mind. To do a deep clean, you need to move your furniture out of the way, clean underneath and behind it, and then clean the actual piece of furniture before replacing it. Approach this from a room-by-room standpoint. Dedicating an afternoon to cleaning your living room allows you to rearrange your furniture piece by piece, so you aren’t left with an even bigger mess at the end of the day. If you can’t get your large furniture out of the room and you need to clean it, consider a disassembly service. It’s easier than you think to have a team of professionals disassemble furniture and it allows you to clean the entire room.

Repair the broken furniture while you’re at it.

Spring cleaning is more than just a mop and bucket, it’s a state of mind. Out with the old, in with the new, right? So why not have your broken furniture fixed while you’re cleaning your home. Refresh your furniture, refresh the way you feel about your home. It’s that simple. Furniture repair experts can do anything to fix your furniture. Whether you have ripped fabric, worn-out cushions, or broken ‘bones’ in your sofa, an expert can bring it back to life. Need sofa repair in NYC? No problem.

Clean the surface areas, no matter what they’re made of.

Sure, it’s easier to get your glass cleaner out and polish your glass furniture. It’s even easier to dust off your wooden bookshelf and call it a day. But cleaning your fabric furniture is more complicated. If you want to reduce allergens, cut down on dust and debris and start fresh in the spring, you would be surprised what a difference fabric cleaning can make on your sofa and on your entire living room.

If you’re going to spend time spring cleaning, do it right by including your furniture in the process.
