Spring cleaning can sometimes feel like a daunting task, but you should view it as an opportunity to make sure you’re putting your best foot forward going into the warmer months. It’s important to set aside time for spring cleaning; by re-evaluating what’s used and what isn’t, purging needless clutter and scrubbing down the spaces where you spend the most time on a seasonal basis. Sometimes it can be difficult to know just where to start, so we’ve put together a simple room-by-room guide to help you stay on track.

Follow along and feel free to adapt as needed to ensure your CLV Group apartment is a happy, orderly and efficient place to live and work this Spring!
