Embrace the Fresh Mountain Air: Spring Cleaning Your Home

As the snow melts away and spring emerges, it's the perfect time to refresh your mountain home in Colorado. With the crisp air and breathtaking views as your backdrop, spring cleaning takes on a whole new meaning in the Rockies. Let's dive into some tips and tricks for sprucing up your home.

Clear Out the Winter Clutter

A great start to spring cleaning is decluttering your space. Bid farewell to bulky winter gear, such as heavy jackets, snow boots, and extra blankets. Store them away neatly to free up space for the lighter attire and outdoor gear you'll be using in the warmer months.

For optimal storage, consider repurposing a clean, emptied suitcase or opting for classic tote storage bins with secure, moisture-resistant lids. Avoid cardboard containers, as they can attract bugs, and make sure your chosen storage container is completely dry to prevent mold buildup.

Let the Sunshine In

Invite the sunshine into your home by cleaning your windows inside and out. With the mountain views Colorado has to offer, you wouldn't want smudges and dirt obstructing your sight. Take the time to wipe down window sills, frames, and screens. 

If time is short, why not delegate the task to one of our dependable local window cleaning services? Just let us know, and we'll be happy to recommend one!

Tackle Dust and Dirt

Mountain living often means dealing with dust and dirt more frequently, thanks to the rugged terrain and outdoor adventures. Take the time to dust all surfaces, including furniture, shelves, and ceiling fans. Vacuum and mop floors to rid them of any lingering debris brought in from your mountain adventures.

Here's a smart trick for cleaning ceiling fans: Grab an old pillowcase. Give it a light spritz with a mild all-purpose cleaner or a vinegar-water solution. Slide the pillowcase over a fan blade and glide it along, trapping dust and debris inside. Repeat for each blade, keeping your cleaning efficient and mess-free.

Spruce Up Outdoor Spaces

Your outdoor living spaces are an integral part of mountain living in Colorado. Give your patio, deck, or balcony a spring makeover by cleaning furniture, sweeping away debris, and adding fresh outdoor décor. Consider planting native flowers or herbs to add a touch of natural beauty to your mountain retreat.

Before planting in high-altitude areas, it's crucial to consider the unique conditions like cold temperatures and intense sunlight. Certain flowers such as Alpine Aster, Mountain Columbine, Alpine Forget-Me-Not, and Rocky Mountain Iris are well-suited for a high-alpine environment.

Embrace Eco-Friendly Practices

Choose natural cleaning solutions or create your own using basic ingredients like vinegar, baking soda, and essential oils. Minimize waste by recycling or repurposing items wherever feasible. Additionally, many communities are expanding access to composting facilities. One of our favorite DIY projects is crafting homemade laundry detergent. Here's our go-to recipe:

Ingredients: 1 bar of soap (such as Castile soap or Fels-Naptha), 1 cup of washing soda, 1 cup of borax

Instructions: Grate the soap finely. Mix the grated soap, washing soda, and borax thoroughly. Store the mixture in an airtight container. Use 1-2 tablespoons of the detergent per laundry load.


Spring cleaning your home in the mountains of Colorado is not just about tidying up; it's a celebration of the natural beauty and tranquility that surrounds you. By embracing the fresh mountain air and infusing your space with cleanliness and charm, you're not only revitalizing your home but also nurturing your connection to the breathtaking landscape that makes Colorado living truly special. So, roll up your sleeves, breathe in the crisp mountain air, and let the rejuvenation begin!
