Spring Cleaning On Wheels

As spring starts to kick off, many homeowners begin their spring cleaning checklists to prepare for summer. This year we are taking you through our spring tips and tricks to help with spring cleaning your home on wheels… Your RV! The small but large community of families who have transitioned into RV life or enjoy taking their RVs out for vacations, still go through the joy of spring cleaning. It may seem a bit untraditional, but some tasks should be done to give your RV the attention it deserves after a long winter's rest.


With a few simple tips and tricks, you can revitalize your RV and get ready for a season of unforgettable adventures.


Start with a Deep Clean:

Begin by decluttering the interior of your RV, removing any items that you don't need for your upcoming trips. Dust and vacuum every nook and cranny, paying special attention to areas that may have accumulated dust over the winter months. Don't forget to clean the windows, mirrors, and screens to let the sunshine in and enjoy the views on your travels.

Refresh Your Fabrics:

Launder all bedding, curtains, and upholstery to remove any lingering odors and stains. Consider using fabric refreshers or baking soda to neutralize any unpleasant smells. For stubborn stains, spot clean with a gentle cleaner, like Cloth+Bristle’s No.001 Household Cleaner, or consider professional upholstery cleaning services.

Check and Replace Filters:

Replace the air conditioning and heating system filters to ensure optimal air quality inside your RV. Don't forget to check and clean the filters in your stove hood and refrigerator to keep them running efficiently.

Inspect and Maintain Appliances:

Inspect all appliances, including the stove, oven, refrigerator, and microwave, for any signs of wear or damage. Clean the coils behind the refrigerator to improve energy efficiency. Test all appliances to ensure they are working properly before hitting the road.

Seal and Protect:

Inspect the seals around windows, doors, and roof vents for any signs of cracking or deterioration. Replace any damaged seals to prevent leaks and drafts during your travels. Consider applying a protective sealant to the exterior of your RV to shield it from the elements and maintain its appearance.

Organize Your Storage:

Take this opportunity to reorganize your storage compartments, maximizing space and accessibility. Use clear bins, baskets, and organizers to keep items neatly stored and easily accessible. Label storage containers to quickly locate items when needed.

Don't Forget the Exterior:

Give the exterior of your RV a thorough wash to remove dirt, grime, and road salt from winter travels. Inspect the roof and siding for any signs of damage or wear, and make any necessary repairs. Treat any rust spots with a rust converter to prevent further corrosion.

With a little time and effort, you can transform your RV into a clean and inviting home away from home for your spring and summer adventures. By following these essential spring cleaning tips and tricks, you'll be ready to hit the open road with confidence and enjoy all that the season has to offer.

Happy travels!
