It’s that time of year again. Flowers are blooming, the birds are chirping, and the sun is out past 5 o’clock which gives you just enough time to do something with your home. That’s right. Spring is here, and with the bucket-list of things that are on your Spring cleaning list, there’s no wonder why you haven’t gotten to it yet.
Take a look at these Spring cleaning and self-storage tips to get you through the season so you can have more time some fun in the sun while your house is sitting pretty, clean and organized.
Spring cleaning storage tips
1) Sell unneeded items
If you’re doing some in-depth Spring cleaning, it may be a good time to start thinking about what you do and do not need around the house. Is there an area rug or piece of furniture that starting to look a little shabby and is in need of an upgrade? How about some old articles of clothing? Having a garage sale could raise you just enough money to replace what you’ve taken out.
2) Store items not frequently used
On the other hand, if you have a few things that you still hold close to your heart but hate the idea of getting rid of, you may want to consider clearing up space by placing it in a temperature controlled self-storage unit. By choosing this option, you’ll be able to both enjoy the perks of having a pristine house while holding onto all of your cherished keepsakes.
3) Use organizational storage
If you have children or work from home in an at-home office, you’re probably all too familiar with having a few organizational storage cabinets around. Needless to say, clever organization tips are always handy.
However, if you’ve never considered getting some, you seriously need to jump onboard. Particularly useful when you’re doing some cleaning around the house, get a couple of decoration cabinets that have wooden or mirrored panes so that way you can keep the clutter organized but out of site for a clean, crisp look around the house.
4) Do a deep clean
Once you start getting into your Spring cleaning routine, this is the one time of year that it’s okay to go all out and immaculately clean those hard to reach spots. Don’t be afraid to pull out the refrigerator, move the couches and wipe down the crown molding, so your home goes through a real transformation. You may even want to consider cleaning out the attic, garage or shed in the back.
5) Don’t forget the exterior of your home
When it comes to getting a little Spring cleaning done, it’s important to pay just as much attention to the home’s exterior as the interior. Remember to power wash sidewalks and the exterior of your home, taking special care to remove old spider webs or wasps nests. Also, clean out any lingering weeds that have grown in your garden over the winter months.
