Now that it’s Spring, you should, of course, be focusing on that amazing, refreshing springtime clean that we all love to do! Don’t sit and stare at the rubbish you’ve been hoarding all winter and let’s get the ball rolling.
If you’re worried the task might be a bit too big, or you’re worried you won’t have enough space to throw away all of the items you want to, then you’re in luck. We have plenty of tips that go over exactly what to do.
Let’s take a look at our spring cleaning tips below and get started!
Make a Thorough List
If you’ve ever tried to do a major clean, you’ll know that the biggest struggle is actually finding or remembering what you wanted to clean up. The easiest way to deal with this issue is to just walk around your house with your iPhone or iPad and make a list of all the things you want to clean, throw away or replace.
It’s also a good idea to make a checklist that you can actually check off. This way you’ll see what’s left and you’ll be more motivated to keep going.
Hire a Removal Service
This is a great way to hold yourself accountable to the clean and keep yourself going, but also the most effective way to throw out your clutter. You’ll have to keep going with the clean as you’ve already hired a removal service to come and because of this you’ll have an effortless way to throw away a lot of rubbish and bigger items too.
Reach out to a rubbish removal service like 1300 Rubbish and you’ll be able to kill two birds with one stone – keeping yourself motivated and having an easy way to dispose of bigger items.
Don’t Cram the Clean Into One Day
No one gets anything done by rushing and that applies to cleaning too. The best way to get the job done well is to spread your Spring clean over a few days or even a week or two. This way you’re not going to get sick of cleaning and you’ll be able to stick to the plan more easily.
It’s also a good idea to do a ‘Spring’ clean more than once a year too. The less there is to do, the more motivated you’ll be.
Implement New House Rules
If you’ve always wanted to set up some new house rules but couldn’t fight your old ways, then during your Spring clean is the best time. You’ve likely moved all of your furniture somewhere and the house might be in a bit of disarray, so use this as an opportunity.
If you’ve always wanted to move furniture, or ban items from being stacked on the stair landing, do it now. This way your next spring clean will be even easier and you won’t have to deal with furniture and clutter in hard to reach places.
Don’t Try Move Everything in One Go
More of a safety tip, though important nonetheless, is to make sure you don’t try carrying everything at once. Don’t be lugging big groups of heavy items around the house to clean them or throw them out otherwise you’ll run the risk of hurting yourself.
Take things slow and just move items around one at a time. If there are items that really are too heavy, your contacts at 1300 Rubbish will be able to help you out.
Call In the Professionals
Once you’re done with your part of the Spring clean, whether it be wiping everything down, throwing all the clutter into the yard or anything else, it’s time to get the professionals in. Reach out to cleaners, rubbish removers and once they’re finished you’ll be all done! You’ll be able to relax in a clutter-free, spotless home once more.
There you have it. Our six tips for making your Spring cleaning as efficient as possible. Be sure to keep clutter out of the home all year round though and do your best to have some sort of strategy in place to prevent the build-up of rubbish. Don’t buy things you don’t need and always remember to throw things away as soon as they break.
