Spring is just around the corner and that means one thing…so is spring cleaning. Now, we can hear all of the moans and groans about what a hassle this seemingly endless list of tasks demands, but it is also a time to enjoy.

You might be asking yourself, “why enjoy?” And we say because it means you are about to work really hard tidying up your living spaces and making them more pleasurable. You are shaking off the accumulated dust and dreariness of the winter weather, and are able to put a whole new face on your household if you choose. That can be as simple as getting some new blinds or drapes to add a whole new look to a room. It also means that you can switch out the winter weight draperies you had been relying on and install those summery sheers you have missed so much!

Integrating changes and updates into your spring cleaning is also a frugal way to save a lot of time and effort. This is because you can easily work on a room-by-room basis to get these essential decor items cleaned and maintained, and this will provide you with a chance to consider updating or changing things like window treatments too.

Naturally, it all begins with a bit of an inventory into what you have, and the creation of a list of decorating goals.

Getting Started

All spring cleaning should begin with a plan, and we highly recommend that you don’t try to tackle it all in a weekend. No one will enjoy this process and you will find that you hesitate to clean when the following spring arrives. Instead, make it fun by taking it in “small bites”. For example, why not say that you will assess all of the blinds and drapes in the house one weekend and handle any cleaning as needed.

Cleaning blinds and drapes is a task that is sometimes overlooked but it is important to be sure that there are no lingering dust bunnies or dirt particles being left behind. If you tackle it yourself, you may want to vacuum the curtains, take them down, have them dry cleaned or wash them yourself, press them if needed, and properly stow them for the season or re-hang them that day. Additionally, you’ll need to dust and clean the blinds to achieve that vibrant, dust-free springtime home.

Alternately, you could contact a firm like Specialty Drapery that specializes in cleaning draperies of all kinds. Specialty Drapery can actually save you a tremendous amount of effort and expense because we handle the cleaning, pressing and even any repairs for you.

Beyond Cleaning

Another way to save time and money is to consider re-decorating projects at this time too. A lot of high-quality suppliers of blinds, drapes, and curtains offer spring sales, and this might be an ideal chance to really doll up the home. It is also a great way to get a jump-start on the next winter season since custom drapery fabrics may be on special markdowns too!

Whether you have decided to have specialists tackle the spring cleaning for you, or want to really jazz up one or more rooms in your home, you can turn to Specialty Drapery for all of your needs.
