Spring cleaning your home isn’t only about scrubbing the baseboards and moving furniture to sweep underneath. Most people consider spring cleaning a total house cleanout where you can purge your home of items that family members no longer use.
The best method for decluttering your home includes making three piles as you clean: to keep, to donate, and to throw away. For the items that you keep, clear them entirely out of the closet or storage room before putting them back in a thoughtful, organized way. When everything has a place, items are less likely to get out of sorts in the future, leading to an easier house cleanout the following year. You can manage your donated or discarded items with the help of Junk-A-Haulics!
So, prepare your supplies, including cleaning products, sorting boxes, and a playlist that keeps you entertained. It’s time to dive into your 2023 spring cleaning checklist.
Work Room by Room
Before deep cleaning takes place, you’ve got to clear out the clutter. This can feel like an overwhelming project, and it can be hard to know where to start. Start by finding some spring cleaning tips that resonate with your personality and busy lifestyle and run with it!
One tip that may help you get started is to get through your spring cleaning checklist by working room by room. Instead of getting overwhelmed as you think about laundry, closets, the pantry, floors, etc., take it one room at a time to keep the project in more manageable pieces.
What needs to be done in the bedroom? Organize drawers and the closet, dust the fan, and sweep the floor under the bed. That seems doable. The worst thing you can do is get overwhelmed and decide to give up on the house cleanout before you even begin. One room at a time will make the total house cleanout seem possible.
Clean Windows, Floors, and Home Exterior
Another idea is to take your spring cleaning one task at a time. Instead of working room to room, start with one task that applies to the total house cleanout. For example, cleaning windows can be done throughout the whole house. Pack up a bucket of your cleaning supplies and go from window to window, scrubbing and buffing them to sparkle shiny and new. A microfiber cloth is always good to use to avoid streaky windows. And don’t forget your mirrors!
Once the windows are done, you can check that task off the list and move to the next. You may choose to wash your bedding in each room or dust the rooms as part of the house cleanout so it can be checked off the list before vacuuming.
Take On Your Garage and Your Basement
The garage and basement are often dumping grounds for off-season decorative items, clothes that do not fit, costumes, food storage, bikes, tools, and more. Organizing the garage or basement can feel like it could take days and days.
First, remember your trusty sorting system. Which items do you want to donate, trash, and keep? Take it one item at a time, and the organizational project will be completed little by little. Once you have decluttered the garage and basement, you can move on to deep cleaning tasks. It will feel so satisfying as you sweep out the last pieces of gravel and dirt from your garage. Imagine how good it will feel to walk out in bare feet and not have to worry about stepping on a nail!
Sometimes, the final step of decluttering takes the longest amount of time – hauling all items off to the donation center. You must load your van or truck and find time to drive to the facility. You may even have to take multiple loads. Instead of letting the sorted piles sit in your basement or garage for months on end, take care of them immediately so that you can enjoy the fruits of your labor. One call to Junk-A-Haulics will get your items out of your hair and delivered to the correct locations. Same-day service is often possible!
Go Through Your Closets and Cabinets
When was the last time you scoured your pantry for expired items and threw them out? It’s a lengthy task that does not always get pushed to the top of the priority list. It’s time to organize the closets and pantry. Fold bed linens and stack them in a row. Get rid of old shoes, picture frames, and books. It will feel so good to purge unused items during your house cleanout.
Declutter Your Rooms and Storage Spaces
The laundry room and storage room are other areas of the home that often get neglected. Sometimes, you even have furniture stacked down in the storage room, taking up valuable space. Old refrigerators, couches, TVs, and more can be out of your hair in a matter of hours when you contact Junk-A-Haulics. You will wonder why you waited so long!
