Tactics for Successful Spring Cleaning - Do You Have Too Much Stuff?

Spring cleaning doesn’t have to be stressful if you know how to approach it and what to do with your junk.

You don’t have to be a hoarder for your home to become filled with clutter – properties acquire junk, dirt and grime as the years go by, and a thorough spring cleaning is the only remedy. Fortunately, you can make this gargantuan task much simpler by taking things one step at a time.

You might reflect on the days you first purchased your home fondly when everything was neat and tidy, and your possessions were in pristine condition. However, now that a few years have gone by, your home may contain more belongings than you realize, some of which you probably don’t need.

So, what should you do? The answer is simple: you need to accept that your home is a mess and now’s the time to act. This article details a tried and tested method to make your spring cleaning efforts more efficient and less tiresome to help you take the stress out of this admittedly laborious task.

Spring Cleaning Preparation

Before putting on the rubber gloves and getting down to scrubbing, you need to prepare yourself by making each room at least semi-approachable. Here’s how:

  • De-clutter every room: Room by room, organize all the clutter taking up your floor space into junk, donatable items and sellable belongings. Be strict: avoid attaching sentimental value to things that you know, deep in your heart, will never have a purpose again.
  • Prepare the family: Don’t try to take on the full brunt of this task alone. Tell the family that everybody needs to chip in to your spring cleaning effort.
  • Stock up on cleaning supplies: This includes dusters, mops, a vacuum, cleaning brushes, sponges, cloths, and cleaning products.

Now that you have everything in order, it’s time to give your home the spring cleaning it deserves. The best approach to spring cleaning is to take it one room at a time, so you don’t overwhelm yourself.
