National Spring Cleaning Week, observed annually the last week of March, serves as a great reminder for you to organize, clean and prep your home for the changing of the seasons. Although MaidPro’s service follows a comprehensive 49-Point Checklist™ it is still important to ensure you tackle larger projects on an annual basis. To help guide your efforts, use the spring cleaning checklist found below:
