ANN ARBOR, Mich.--()--Just as Americans nationwide reach for mops and brooms in an annual spring cleaning ritual, Molly Maid, the nation’s leading house cleaning company, reveals America’s top 10 messiest cities.

To determine which city led the pack of dust bunnies, Molly Maid ranked cities based on the total number of cleans performed by its nearly 500 franchises across the country. Here are Molly Maid’s 10 cities most in need of a deep clean, from least messy to messiest:

10.     Orlando, Fla.
9. Denver, Colo.

“Houston takes the top spot in our evaluation of messiest homes, but residents shouldn’t be discouraged by our tongue-in-cheek ranking,” said Molly Maid President Meg Roberts. “With cleaning tips from the pros and little elbow grease, the entire country can be spotless this spring.”

Meg suggests prioritizing rooms and cleaning while resolve is high for spring cleaning success. The kitchen, family room and bathrooms are the most dreaded, so approach each space systematically by clearing clutter, dusting and then sweeping.
