Spring is in the air, and with it comes the annual tradition of spring cleaning. As the weather warms up and the days grow longer, it’s the perfect time to freshen up your home and get it ready for the new season. Here are some tips from Pearce Design Group, an interior design firm in Jersey Shore, to help you tackle your spring cleaning.
Before you can begin deep cleaning your home, it’s important to get rid of any clutter that may have accumulated over the winter months. Go through each room and make three piles: keep, donate, and throw away. This will not only make your home look cleaner and more organized but will also give you a sense of accomplishment.
When cleaning your home, always start from the top and work your way down. This means starting with ceiling fans, light fixtures, and shelves before moving on to tables, countertops, and floors. This will ensure that any dust or debris falls onto surfaces that haven’t been cleaned yet.
In essence, Spring is the perfect time to give your windows a thorough cleaning. Use a glass cleaner and a microfiber cloth to remove any dirt and grime from the glass. Don’t forget to clean the frames and sills as well, as they can accumulate a lot of dust and debris over time.
Pro Tip from lead designer, Nicole Kirsch
Using treated fabrics on windows is a great way to protect them from fading due to sun exposure. Our window treatment lines are designed with convenience in mind, as they can all be dry cleaned to maintain their pristine appearance. We recommend dry-cleaning your treatments once a year.
Undeniably, Winter weather can leave your carpets and upholstery looking dingy and dirty. Use a carpet cleaner or hire a professional to give your carpets a deep clean. For upholstery, use a fabric cleaner and a soft-bristled brush to remove any stains or dirt.

We pride ourselves on offering performance fabrics that not only offer practical benefits, but also have a luxurious feel.

Take some time to go through your closets and pantries and organize them. This means getting rid of any clothes or items that you no longer need, as well as reorganizing your remaining items. Consider using storage bins or shelving to make the most of your space.
Once you’re organized, you can easily swap out your heavy winter bedding for lighter, brighter options that are perfect for spring. This can include floral prints, pastel colors, and lightweight fabrics like cotton or linen.
Spring is all about new growth and renewal, so why not add some plants to your home? Not only do plants add a pop of color and texture to your space, but they also purify the air and create a calming atmosphere.
