What comes to mind when you hear the words “spring cleaning?” That’s an easy one. This is the time when folks decide to do a thorough cleaning of their homes. Forget the once a week dusting and sweeping, a spring cleaning is a major floor to ceiling scrub down. No speck of dust or crumb of food should be left standing in a house that has gone through an intense spring cleaning. But there are some areas in a home that might be overlooked even with the best intentions. When was the last time you cleaned out your medicine cabinet?
Believe it or not there is an actually day in May designated as National Prescription Drug Take Back Day. This is the day when folks are encouraged to bring all their unwanted medicines into a designated drop off center for proper disposal. Of course, you could just toss out your expired pills but we all know our trashcans aren’t always secure. You might just be surprised about how many unused bottles of pills, potions and lotions you have lurking in your medicine cabinet.
Then there is the issue of cleaning your kitchen. Yes, we all know what a spotless kitchen should look like, but how are your pantry or cupboard shelves doing? Are you overstocked with canned goods? Are some of these items reaching the expiration date? You might consider going through your kitchen to look for canned or dry goods that you could donate to a local San Antonio food bank. These items are sure to be put to good use before they have a chance to expire.
Now, let’s talk your office. When was the last time your business had a major cleaning? Sure, you might have janitorial services come through to empty the trash and vacuum the floors, but is that really a spring cleaning? What about behind desks, under sofas and the dreaded storage closet! All of that can be swept through for a complete cleaning.
Back at your home, you might begin to create a pile of junk that is too large for your weekly trash pick. Think of this as the collateral damage of a spring cleaning. These large items could be anything from a ping-pong table nobody uses to busted up baby furniture that has long been outgrown. The reason we hang onto this junk has less to do with sentimental value and more to do with practicality: We just can’t move it. If you’ve reached the point in your spring cleaning when you’ve got junk that has to get gone, it’s time to call in the professionals.
An experienced crew of junk haulers like Junk King San Antonio can show up at the appointed hour with a huge truck and plenty of muscle to take away your refuse. There really is no sense to go through the hard work of a spring cleaning if you’re not going to clear out the clutter. Once this junk is gone you’ll marvel at the amount of space you can reclaim.
