Focus Spring Cleaning on High Traffic Areas

Spring cleaning is a great time to declutter and organize your home. However, it can be overwhelming to deep clean the entire house at once. To make spring cleaning more manageable, focus your efforts on the high traffic areas of your home. These are the places that get the most use and show the most wear. Giving them some extra attention will make the biggest impact.


The entryways to your home likely see a lot of foot traffic and activity. When spring cleaning, be sure to focus on these high traffic areas first.

Front Door

The front door is the first thing guests see when they come to your home. Make sure it makes a good first impression by:

  • Wiping down the front door inside and out. Use a glass cleaner on any glass elements.
  • Cleaning out the door’s crevices and wiping down the door jamb. Pay close attention to any dirt buildup in corners.
  • Checking for any needed repairs like chipped paint or hardware.
  • Adding a fresh new welcome mat.


Give your entryway a thorough spring cleaning by:

  • Cleaning out closets and coat areas. Donate or throw away any unused items.
  • Wiping down walls and switch plates. Disinfect high touch spots.
  • Vacuuming and mopping floors. Get into corners and under mats.
  • Dusting surfaces and decor. Pay extra attention to picture frames and lamps.

Garage Entry

As the transition space from the outdoors, your garage sees a lot of dirt. When spring cleaning the garage:

  • Sweep out any dirt, leaves, or grime. A leaf blower can help make quick work of this task.
  • Clear out clutter on the floor and shelves. Toss or donate unused items.
  • Wipe down tools and outdoor equipment.
  • Check for any leaks or damage.

Main Living Spaces

The rooms your family spends the most time in deserve some extra spring cleaning love.

Living Room

To refresh your living room this spring:

  • Vacuum upholstered furniture to remove embedded dirt and dust.
  • Wash or dry clean furniture covers like slipcovers.
  • Dust surfaces like windowsills, lamp shades, and bookshelves.
  • Clean floors thoroughly – vacuum carpets, mop hard floors.


As a busy gathering space prone to messes and spills, the kitchen needs a deep clean.

  • Clean inside appliances like the oven, fridge, and dishwasher.
  • Wipe down outside surfaces and clean knobs and handles.
  • Go through pantry and toss expired items. Wipe down shelves.
  • Deep clean sink and faucet. Remove hard water spots and disinfect.
  • Scrub countertops and backsplash. Disinfect high touch areas.

Dining Room

Make your dining space guest-ready by:

  • Cleaning chairs, especially underneath seats which can collect dirt and dust.
  • Washing table linen like tablecloths and placemats.
  • Polishing silver and china that is displayed.
  • Dusting lighting fixtures and art on the walls.


Bedrooms can collect a lot of dust and clutter, especially around bedding. Tackle these high traffic personal spaces by:

Washing all bed linens

This includes:

  • Sheets
  • Pillowcases
  • Duvet covers
  • Blankets

Use the highest heat setting appropriate for the fabric.

Vacuuming mattresses

Use the brush attachment and go over the entire surface. This removes dead skin cells, dust mites, and other debris that collects.

Clearing clutter

  • Clean out closets and under beds.
  • Donate or toss any unused clothing and items.
  • Organize books, papers, and collections.

Dusting and disinfecting

Pay special attention to:

  • Ceiling fans
  • Baseboards
  • Door knobs
  • Window sills
  • Bedside tables and lamps

By focusing your spring cleaning efforts on the high traffic spaces of your home, you can make the biggest impact in the shortest amount of time. Entryways, living spaces, and bedrooms likely need more attention than seldom-used rooms. Give these heavy use areas some extra love this spring for a deeper, fresher clean.
