If your spring cleaning goals include organizing to reduce clutter in your Village home, then the following guide is for you. Here are some tips to help clean your spaces and remove clutter from your life this spring.
Do some pre-cleaning
Cleaning professionals recommend thoroughly deep cleaning your house or commercial building a few times a year—and especially in the spring. Winter likely dropped a ton of allergens, particles that now sit on all the surfaces in your home. For this reason, prior to moving things around to declutter any room, it’s best to perform a quick pre-cleaning. This removes some dust and debris, but you’re bound to stir up more dust while decluttering and organizing.
Declutter your space
You’ll need to focus hard on organizing to reduce clutter in your Village home. Go through the items you own and separate out the things you no longer use or want. Donate items that are still good and throw away anything that’s broken, torn, worn or stained. Toss old papers. You should also clean out expired food from the fridge, cabinets and pantry. As a bonus, decluttering the space around you can also help declutter your mind.
Clear your desk and workspace
If you work from home, have a dedicated workspace for a hobby or a desk for general use, clear it off. This doesn’t mean tossing everything in the garbage—we’re simply saying you should take a few minutes to organize your desk so you can dust and polish. A clean work area can lower anxiety and make you feel less closed in.
Dust furniture and surfaces
Use a microfiber cloth to wipe down furniture and other surfaces in your house. If you need to use a cleaning chemical, be sure it’s safe to use on the specific types of material. Alternatively, you can hire pro cleaners to come to your home to perform furniture cleaning services. This will improve the look of your living environment and extend the life of your furniture.
Pro clean your flooring
Spring cleaning should most definitely include professional deep carpet cleaning or hardwood floor cleaning. Carpet cleaning restores carpets, removing stains, spots and odors in one go. Periodic hardwood floor cleaning, meanwhile, can remove debris and rejuvenate tired-looking wood. Good cleanings can also help wood floors last longer. There are different cleaning methods for different types of hard flooring. Contact your local floor cleaners for more information.
Clean out your car
Another area of your life that needs cleaning—but doesn’t receive as much attention as homes and commercial buildings—is your car. This spring, grab a garbage bag, microfiber cloth, glass cleaner and a shop vac and get cleaning. Get rid of obvious trash, like old receipts, plastic water bottles, food wrappers and dried-up pieces of food. Once you’ve removed the clutter from your vehicle, clean the inside from top to bottom.
