How To Spring Clean The Bedroom

Sharing is caring!

Spring is the perfect time to refresh and declutter your bedroom. We’ll show you how to effectively spring clean your bedroom with these helpful cleaning tips and tricks.

I don’t hide the fact that I just love a good spring clean. Going through all my home decluttering, giving rooms a thorough clean so that everything sparkles, putting everything back neat and looking good it really makes me happy.

You’ll need to set aside at least a morning or an afternoon to give the bedroom a thorough deep clean (maybe a full day, depending on the size and how much cleaning you need to do). And remember, if you’re doing kids bedrooms get them helping out to!

As always when doing a big spring clean, get the windows open, let the fresh air in, and turn the music up loud, it just makes cleaning so much more uplifting and enjoyable. I make spring cleaning part of my cleaning routine – and try to do a deep clean at the start of every season.

You’re going to love how clean the bedroom ends up, and how much brighter, lighter and fresher it feels to be in there!

What Is A Deep Clean

A deep clean is where you totally declutter your space and clean everything in it from floor to ceiling. It includes every cupboard, box, shelf and window, window sills, countertops, EVERYTHING! If it’s there – clean it!

How To Spring Clean The Bedroom

All our best bedroom cleaning hacks to really give your bedroom a thorough deep clean!

  • Empty the wardrobes and drawers. Sort through your clothes and belongings, get rid of items no longer wanted.
  • Pack away your cold weather clothing and shoes and store neatly away until next autumn/winter.
  • Vacuum and wipe clean the inside of the wardrobe and drawers.
  • Declutter and wipe clean the top of the wardrobes, dressers and nightstands.
  • Declutter and clean all surfaces – we usually polish surfaces using a duster.
  • Clean door handles and light switches – if you have a ceiling fan, clean this too.
  • Vacuum lamps, light fixtures and light shades to remove any dust and dirt build up, remember to give the light bulbs a quick dust too. You can also clean them using a lint roller. Find out how to clean a lampshade properly here.
  • Windows – take down and wash the curtains (as per laundry instructions), vacuum and clean blinds, vacuum window vents, wash the windows and clean the windowsills.

  • Vacuum underneath and behind all furniture.
  • Vacuum and wipe down all woodwork – doors, skirting boards and baseboards, we usually do this using warm water and a squirt of dish soap, washing with a damp cloth and drying as we go – grab our guide for how to clean skirting boards here. Be sure to clean the radiator too – here’s how to clean a radiator
  • Throw dirty winter bedding and blankets into the washing machine and wash, dry and store it away. Bring out lighter spring/summer bedding and linens.
  • Vacuum the mattress (you’ll be amazed how much dead skin and dust this will remove!) We do this using the small vacuum upholstery attachment. It’s also a good idea to tackle cleaning any mattress stains too.
  • Vacuum all parts of the bed.
  • Make up the bed with clean summer – light weight bedding.
  • Vacuum the floor, carpets and rugs and mop if it’s a suitable surface for mopping. If you have wooden or hardwood floors feel free to sweep them with a broom instead of vacuuming if you prefer.
