These annual tasks are like medicine for a healthy and happy home. But what does a yearly house cleaning schedule look like?

To make the tasks manageable, they can be spread across the year according to the seasons. The yearly cleaning schedule will help you to keep your home looking spotless from Spring through to Winter!

 

Spring

Spring is a great time to do some clearing-out after the Winter months indoors. Over the course of a year, the kitchen and garage accumulate clutter and Spring is a good time to clear them out. Your gutters accumulate debris over the Fall and Winter months and Spring is an excellent time to get them back in perfect working order.

Before the lockdown

We first heard about coronavirus in early January. We began to take serious notice on 23rd January when the Chinese government locked down Wuhan province. As the first cases were identified in the UK, we began to seriously think about the implications of a lockdown on the UK domestic cleaning sector.
