The tradition of spring cleaning is almost a necessity. Going through our belongings every year can help us from becoming overwhelmed with the amount of stuff we have accumulated over the years. With spring well on its way, now is the perfect time to get started on decluttering, reorganizing, and cleaning.
A clean home provides not only more physical space but better mental clarity and less stress. Eliminating the junk from your home can be a stressful process, but at Good Riddance Hauling, we can help make it easy.
Here are our top tips on where to get started with your spring cleaning:
Step 1: Make a Plan
Listing the areas that need to be decluttered can help keep you on track. By writing down the goals for reach rooms, you can better spot what needs to be removed, replaced, and cleaned.
Step 2: Focus on Removing Large Items
Things like old mattresses, couches, chairs, and other furniture make it difficult to see all the smaller clutter pieces. We’ll help you haul these items away, so you have more space to go through everything else.
Step 3: Leave No Box Unchecked
Go through every closet, container, box, shelf, drawer, etc. If you can’t see it, you can’t clean it. In your bedroom, there might be items under the bed, lost in a drawer, or behind a cabinet that was forgotten about. Under kitchen counters, there might be appliances never used. Keep a lookout for spaces in the bathroom, garage, hall closet, attic, and basement that your junk can hide.
Step 4: Organize What You Want To Keep
If there are items you don’t use regularly but want to keep, be sure to get clear bins and labels or shelves to make everything else to find and accessible. The items in your home should have a place.
Step 5: Make Piles
We recommend creating three distinct piles when decluttering: donate, keep, trash. Keeping these piles in designated spots can help ensure they aren’t mixed up in the process.
Once you’ve decluttered and cleaned, what do you do with the piles? Contact us to help you get rid of your junk at a time that’s convenient for you.
