Spring is almost upon us, a season that is synonymous with fresh starts. It’s time when you take a resolve to rid yourself of winter blues and revitalize your home, as you get ready for warmer weather.
For most Americans, spring cleaning is an annual ritual. So, if you are a part of that majority or want to make an attempt to tackle this process as a first-timer, here are some useful tips for you to get started:
1. First, De-clutter
First and foremost, get rid of the items that are filling up your home needlessly. Your unwanted items could include clothes like heavy outerwear, which you would no longer need in spring. You may consider donating them to a charity or place them into seasonal storage after labeling them. Also, put away heavy bedding and change your curtains with those made up of lighter materials to get rid of the winter feel in your home.
2. Do Seasonal Gear Swap Out
During the winter months, your basement and your garage become storage areas for patio furniture, lawn mowers, grills, and lawn mowers. With warmer weather just round the corner, you can consider boosting your curb appeal and revert your garage to its summer shape.
3. Make Your Home Atmosphere Refreshing
Get rid of the dirt, allergens, and dust in your home to make the atmosphere more refreshing. Thoroughly clean windows, draperies, fixtures and more items that often get ignored. Dust and wash window sills, corners, floorboards and draperies. Replace your bedding with a cleaner bedding, vacuum and flip your mattress. All these actions will clean up your messes considerably and you won’t feel overwhelmed with a lot of tasks at the end of the week.
4. Maximize Your Home Storage
Once you begin the cleaning process, you should consider the space which you already have inside your home that you can utilize to your advantage. This way, you can create and maintain an organized space.
5. Create a Regular Spring Cleaning Schedule
It might seem surprising to hear vacuuming and dusting needs to be done every few days. Therefore, you should prepare and follow a spring cleaning schedule and make it a routine. This way, you can also avoid the possibility of a thorough and tough cleaning exercise at a later date.
6. Consider the Option of a Storage Unit
If you rent out a storage unit, it can be a space-saving option to store your seasonal belongings, seasonal accessories, and oversized items for which you’ve been unable to find storage space. For fragile items such as furniture, antiques, or wood, climate controlled storage can protect them temperature and humidity. The storage unit can then help prolong the life of your precious belongings.
