Five DIY tasks to kick-start your Spring Cleaning regime


Springtime has officially arrived and with it comes the traditional Spring Cleaning period in homes up and down the country.

But while Spring Cleaning usually concerns the thorough clearing of dust and grime after a long winter, there are some essential DIY tasks that can also be undertaken to help get your home ready for the summer.

Here we list a few…

 General DIY

Whether it’s a leaky tap, loose skirting boards or that door that has never really hung properly, there are plenty of small DIY tasks that can be taken on whilst the big clean is underway. Performing these tasks now will help to get the house looking at its best and avoids having to clear up another big mess once the cleaning season has passed!

 Carpet care

 The carpeted surfaces in our homes endure a lot of wear and tear, especially over the cold winter months when we bring in far more moisture and debris from the outdoors. Spring offers an optimum time to perform a deep clean on damaged carpets, and there are a range of professional cleaning products available to help you do the best job possible.

Wooden flooring

Like carpeting, wooden surfaces will require a little bit of TLC in the springtime to help them look their best. Sanding equipment is perfect for clearing ingrained dust and debris that can cause wooden surfaces to look dull and worn, with nifty solutions available for large areas of flooring and confined spaces.


Spring is a great time to drag out the dust sheets and give the internal and external walls of your home a bit of a makeover. From a fresh lick of paint to hanging new wallpaper, re-decorating will give your house a fresh and clean feel that can be enjoyed throughout the summer and beyond.


If you would like to enjoy some warm summer days in the garden this year, the time to start preparing is now! Minor projects such as lawn mowing and hedge trimming can make a real difference, whilst planning a more ambition landscaping project for your garden can have an enormous impact on how you can enjoy the green space attached to your home.
