At Neato Robotics, we have dedicated a lot of time into helping you keep your carpets and floors clean – with minimal hassle and effort on your part. For the other nooks and crannies of your home, we’ve rounded up some of the best cleaning bloggers on the web to share some of their best spring cleaning tips with you.

Because Clean My Space began on YouTube, nearly every post incorporates a video, which can be helpful when discovering a new way to clean something. From choosing the right vacuum to seasonal cleaning tips, Clean My Space will change the way you clean your home!Melissa’s Spring Cleaning Tip:

“Remember to clean soft surfaces too, like pillows, carpets and rugs, blankets, mattresses, upholstery and drapes.  These collect dust, allergens, odours, dust mites, dander, and other unsavoury bits and pieces.  Professional steam cleaners can be brought in to treat these surfaces, which provides great relief for allergy and asthma sufferers.  Certain items like rugs, pillow cases, duvets and drapes can be brought to a dry cleaner and cleaned once a year for good measure.  This will help keep the home odour and allergen free.”

Jenn’s Spring Cleaning Tip:

“Spring cleaning can often be overwhelming so always go in with a plan and stick to it!  Be realistic about the time that you have available and choose a space to clean that you can fully complete within that time frame. Gather all of your needed cleaning supplies before starting so you do not have to leave the room and risk the chance of distractions.  When you are ready to start cleaning, work in a systematic pattern around the room – always cleaning from the top of the room to the bottom and from one side to the other to avoid having to clean the same area twice and cut down on cleaning time.”

“My favorite thing to do to freshen up my home in the early spring, BEFORE the pollen hits, is to open all the windows for a few hours, and let as much of that wonderful fresh air indoors as I can. We have brutal winters where I live, and with the house closed up tight in the winter, it seems to get what I call, “house-i-tosis” where my home gets stale and stuffy. So at the first sign of a warm sunny day, you can find me opening all the windows to clear out the stuffiness and let in the freshness!”
