I don't think I ever have done a full Spring Cleaning of a house. My Mom cleaned all the time (or so it seemed to me growing up). True that if the windows were open then dust from the nearby fields blew in and each day dusting was required if you didn't want to be able to write on the furniture. Without air conditioning having the windows open during hot weather in Illinois was a must though.
When I was a very busy young adult I did all my chores on the weekend so the house got cleaned routinely then. Now it is sort of a well, is it dirty enough to need some effort approach. Except this Spring I noticed that a deep clean was needed after 2 years of living here.
Instead of an intensive Spring cleaning drive though I have decided to do one room at a time as the mood and energy strikes me. Thus it will be spread over many months.
So far I've done the smaller bedroom, 2 bathrooms and the dining room as well as the front walk/door/doormat. We also refreshed our little patio area. We finished the den yesterday when we washed the screens and outside of the windows. Which makes me have to mention that we haven't done that in the smaller bedroom yet!
I thinking the hallway with its big closet/linen closet and a random cupboard that has dog things, wrapping paper, etc. is next. Or perhaps the garage before it gets too hot? We'll see.
