Renew Your Home: Spring Cleaning Tips from InPlace

March 26, 2024

The arrival of spring in Belgium brings the promise of longer days, blossoming tulips, and the perfect opportunity to renew and refresh your home. The tradition of spring cleaning is a chance to bid the chilly Belgian winter farewell, open the windows to the crisp spring air, and let the soft sunlight of the Ardennes fill your home. At InPlace, we embrace the Belgian springtime spirit by believing that a clean home equals a clear mind, and we're here to help make this process as efficient and enjoyable as possible. Here are some tips to get the most out of your spring cleaning in the heart of Europe:

1. Make a Plan

Before you start, create a task list and divide it by room. This will help organize your time and ensure nothing is overlooked. Remember to include tasks that are often missed, such as cleaning behind furniture and washing curtains, to fully embrace the renewal that the Belgian spring offers.

2. Declutter

With the spring renewal in the air, particularly in the bustling streets of Brussels or the peaceful countryside of Wallonia, it’s the ideal time to let go of items you no longer use. Sort out clothes, books, and decorative items that no longer serve you and consider donating them. Less clutter means fewer things to clean and more space to enjoy the fresh, floral scents of Belgian spring.

3. Deep Clean

Embrace the full spirit of Belgian spring by going beyond regular cleaning and committing to a deep clean. This includes washing rugs, cleaning windows to enjoy the view of the springtime bloom, sanitizing the kitchen and bathroom, and cleaning appliances inside and out. A thoroughly clean home brings a sense of renewal akin to the blooming landscapes of Flanders fields.

4. Pay Attention to Details

Don't forget the small details that make a big difference in aligning your home with the freshness of spring in Belgium. Cleaning baseboards, doorknobs, light switches, and ceiling fans are tasks that complete the transformation of your home into a Belgian spring haven.

5. Make It a Family Event

Turn spring cleaning into a fun family event, much like a Belgian spring festival. Assign tasks to all family members and play some upbeat music to make the process as rejuvenating as a walk through the Royal Greenhouses of Laeken. Celebrate the hard work with a special meal featuring seasonal Belgian ingredients or a family outing to enjoy the spring weather.

6. Consider Professionals
