Just what are the public areas of your home? Those would be the ones that casual guests in your house may be expected to wander into – such as the living room or the kitchen. Part three of the series will talk about the private areas of your home, stay tuned!
Spring Cleaning Checklist – General

Lime deposits around faucets
Thoroughly clean cabinet doors and knobs
Organize (pull everything out and put back in a logical manner)
Toss expired food
Clean under knobs
Empty and toss expired foods
Clean entire interior
Wipe all exterior surfaces included top
Clean seals around doors with toothbrush
Pull fridge out and sweep and mop floor underneath
Change water filter on ice maker
Living Room/Family Room:
take them down, remove hooks and run them through an air-fluff cycle in the dryer with a damp towel (to attract the dust) for 15 minutes. Re-hang immediately.
Consider having professionally cleaned
Thoroughly clean all of them
