Spring is such a wonderful season, birds are finally out chirping, the sun starts to feel warmer and the snow begins to be a distant memory (sometimes).  Even if doesn’t fully feel like spring yet in Calgary, it’s still time to start tackling your spring cleaning list.  It’s a great time to get your home ready for the summer season and make your home a happy, clean and organized space.

Below is detailed list to help you with spring cleaning your home.
