As warmer weather quickly approaches, you can get a head start on spring cleaning by cleaning out your home! Cleaning out your home and decluttering items you do not need opens up valuable real estate in your home, giving you more room to move around and allowing more light into your home. Decluttering has been proven to help mood swings and clear your head. Knowing how to go about cleaning out your home can be overwhelming, but following these tips from Flannery’s Handymen can help make the process easier!
Go Room by Room
Like packing for a move, cleaning your home room by room increases the efficiency of your home cleanout. Start with the rooms you don’t use often, such as your dining or family rooms. Remove anything you haven’t used in the last year: outdated media, magazines, toys. As you go through your home and into the rooms where you keep most of your things, you will need to be able to sort with more nuance. If something does not bring you joy or no longer serves a practical purpose, set it aside.
Sort Everything Into Piles
As you go through each room, make sure each item has a designated place. Items you are looking to keep should have space on shelves or in drawers or closets. The things you are looking to get rid of should be sorted into piles: donation, trash, and storage. If something is damaged or worn beyond further use or repair, it should be disposed of or recycled. Gently used items can be donated to various organizations with local headquarters, from clothing to books and furniture. If you cannot find an organization to take longer items, Flannery’s Handymen is donating one truckload of gently used furniture every week!
