Spring Cleaning With Stanley Steamer – Giveaway!


We moved into our new home last fall and with two small children we’re already thinking about our yearly deep carpet cleaning. Yes, every year we have our carpets cleaned. I think it helps reduce allergies and keeps our carpet fresh and new, especially since our home is new. WE don;t allow our children to eat anyhere but downstairs on our hardwood floors but they still manage to make their fair share of messes.

To combat this difficult allergy season this spring plus truly make your homes clean, consumers should consider a deeper cleaning twice a year by the professionals at Stanley Steemer. We were so happy to also get a gift card to pay for our carpet cleaning service.

  1. Kisha says

    We were just talking today about getting our carpets cleaned. Our two year old loves to throw her food and so our carpets really need to be cleaned…again.

  2. LaTanya says

    We go through the entire house and get rid of anything we do not need or use anymore.

  3. Wendy Rozema says

    I always start by cleaning out the kitchen cupboards, then I move on to cleaning out the closets!

  4. suburban prep says

    Start in the closets to see if there are things we do not wear any longer than go to the rest of that room and then windows and finally the carpets.

  5. Jennifer vickers says

    We have the carpets cleaned since we have so much of it! Also, open all the windows to get lots of fresh air.

  6. Sarah Hirsch says

    i clean the house a little more thoroughly – clean out the fridge, wash walls, etc.

  7. Sheryl Granholm says

    Yeah, I should probably start doing that… I have a daily chore list, but not a seasonal one!

  8. Heather Augenstein says

    1st Entry: We clean our windows inside and out. I also power wash the back deck. We need our carpets cleaned, so this giveaway rocks for us!

  9. Karen Gonyea says

  10. Nicole Larsen says

    I dust EVERYTHING and usually scrub down the walls in every room with lysol and water!

  11. says

    Oh lord, you don’t want to know. I get a notebook, and I start at the entrance to my home and i write down every little tiny thing that can be cleaned & fixed for each room. Then I go to each porch, and the yard. I grab a stack of boxes that follow me from room to room – each labeled arts, juju’s room, bathroom, toss, donate, etc and I start filling boxes as I go. Eventually all t6he boxes get sorted and things get put back in their homes. I soak blinds in a weak bleach solution and sun them. I soak all toys. Pack up Winters & pull out summers. It goes on and on and on. Usually Spring cleaning last a coupe weeks and is done before Easter. This year we all got sick and it’s been really drawn out. Great timing though – I haven’t had my carpets done yet!

  12. Stacey B says

    I spring clean by throwing out stuff that I don’t use, and organizing and cleaning all the stuff that’s left. There’s no point in having a bunch of junk sitting around!

  38. says

    I like to avoid spring cleaning if at all possible! Honestly, I try to break it up room by room and spread the work out over a week or so so that I do not get overwhelmed. I also clean out closets to get rid of excess clothing and stuff that no longer fits.

  39. Marci says

    I write a list of projects that need to get done from hardest to easiest. Then I complete each task before I move on to the next one.
