Spring is almost here, and whether it’s a tradition that you look forward to or one that you dread, the end of winter means that it’s time for your annual spring cleaning project. Though it may not be fun in the midst of it, decluttering and organizing offers many benefits to your physical, mental and emotional health. Here are some of our top tips to make spring cleaning more enjoyable this year.
Clean Room By Room
Break it down and approach your home room-by-room to make the entire process less daunting. It is also the most effective way to deep clean your home as each room will likely need varying levels of cleaning. Make a checklist as a springboard for areas that need some extra care to keep you focused on parts of your home that you may have neglected all year long.
Declutter And Organize
Decluttering is one of the most significant and time-consuming parts of spring cleaning. While it may take a while, you will feel lighter and fresher once you get rid of items that are weighing you down! Here’s a systematic four-step approach when it comes to decluttering: sort your things into one of the four categories- trash, give away, store, keep. This will guide your decisions and make organization after decluttering much easier. Trust us; cleaning is a lot easier when the clutter is gone!
Keep Cleaning Products To A Minimum
The cleaning aisle in the grocery store is stocked full of commercial products that can become difficult to distinguish. Be wary of buying too many cleaning products as that can also mean more clutter! Try keeping it simple and pick more basic supplies such as a trusted all-purpose cleaner and microfibre cloths. You can even make your cleaner at home to save some money while protecting the environment.
Now that you’ve cleared out all your clutter to junk and give away piles, it’s time to take steps actually to get them out of your house. Call your trusted local junk removal service if you have oversized items, appliances or a lot of junk to avoid them cluttering your front yard while waiting for the next trash pick up. For the donate pile, make sure to check with your local charities and thrift shops to check whether they offer pick-up services in your area. This is the last step in the spring cleaning process, so don’t procrastinate!
