Best Spring Cleaning tips 2020 -  6x cleaning up your house

It’s spring again and it’s time to clean up the house and garage and get ready for the summer. Put on your old clothes and pull out your cleaning materials and have good faith.

These 6 easy cleaning tips will help you make your house feel like brand new again.

1. The early bird catches the worm

A big clean up means you really clean everything. Every hole and corner in the house get its turn.

With all your furniture and accessories in the way, it’s better to make room in your house first.

So it’s time to get up early and prepare the actual cleaning, before cleaning.

Try to put little accessories in cabins and on tables, so the floor is almost empty.

You can leave closets and big furniture, but rugs and chairs are easy to stack or to store somewhere else (e.g. in a storage unit near you).

2. Divide and conquer

Of course you want to clean the whole house and garage at once, but that would be too much at once.

You start to rush the clean up, since you’re running out of time.

That way, you end up cleaning everything poorly, which is a waste of time.

Divide your house in sections, like ground floor, first floor, garden, garage etc.

It’s important not to forget the garden, furniture and garage since it will be summer soon and you will be spending a lot of time outside.

Start from the inside out and work from the top to the bottom or else you will be dragging all the stuff from upstairs over your cleaned floor afterwards.

3. Make a list of the stuff you want to keep, throw away or store somewhere else

Make a list of the stuff you want to keep, throw away or store somewhere else, in order to clean up the house and free up space, designed for living.

That old surfboard and drums are taking up too much space in the garage for years, which was designed as a garage, not as a messy storage place.

Free up room by either giving it away, selling it, or store it at a self storage facility, e.g. at a modern self storage in New York.

4. Be realistic and don’t forget to have fun

Most people don’t feel like cleaning up. Especially not the big boring spring clean up.

Therefore it’s important to make the best of it and don’t overdo stuff. You don’t have to clean every spoon or book on the shelf separately inside out.

If it’s clean, it’s clean!! So, try not to be too pessimistic, turn up the music, make yourself comfortable and don’t forget to treat yourself!

If you really don’t feel like it, you can also ask a friend to help, and in return you help cleaning up their house. Double the fun!

5. The big spring cleanup takes time and preparation is key

in order to start cleaning up your house, you need the proper cleaning materials or arrange a storage unit, if needed.

So, make an inventory of what you think you might need and what you already have. Here’s a small list of frequently used cleaning items for big cleanups:

  • Vacuum cleaner & vacuum cleaner bags

  • Cleaning mop

  • Trash cans and garbage bags

  • Bathroom cleaners

  • Household cleaners

  • Kitchen Cleaners

  • Kitchen paper

  • Hand Soap and Sanitizers

  • Bleach

  • Outdoor cleaners

6. Don’t forget to clean up afterwards

Cleaning up the house gives you a clean and fresh feeling, since it’s clean and fresh.

To maintain that feeling it’s important to clean up all the other mess in the house.

So, get rid of things you don’t use, pack the rest in moving boxes and store them in your storage unit: check out these storage units in NYC.

Don’t forget to clean up the further mess you made after, packing and cleaning up.

Stow all cleaning items properly and set the furniture straight again and drive to your storage unit, or let us come and pickup the items that needs to be stored for free and store it in one of our storage units and good luck next year!!!!!
