Work from the top down, inside to outside, to avoid getting what you just cleaned dirty again.
Do one room, at a time to avoid unfinished jobs. Spring cleaning can be very overwhelming, so if you break the home up it does not seem to be as bad. The satisfaction of seeing one room sparkle will make the hard work feel like it's worth the effort.
When tidying, reduce trips around the house by temporarily depositing items in one spot en route to but not at their final destination.
Do two things at once.
While laundry is going, scrub the shower stall.
Make small repairs. If you're not handy, hire someone.
Invest in good rubber or vinyl gloves to protect your hands.
Dust before vacuuming or cleaning the floor. Use extendable dusters for reaching above window and door casings and into corners. Household rags are invaluable for jobs requiring a damp cloth (natural fibers work best.)
Buy mops with a squeeze mechanism and a decent size heavy duty bucket. One with a measuring scale helps get soap-to-water ratios correct.
Don't stand your brooms on their bristles. It will destroy their shape and diminish their effectiveness. A solution to this issue is to get a broom holder, like the Magic Holder 5-position broom organizer.
Use a Swiffer for light dusting, or your favorite broom or vacuum attachment to clean hardwood floors. Then damp-mop with a mild cleaner such as Murphy Oil Soap.
