Many people have a love/hate relationship with spring cleaning. Getting rid of clutter can be a helpful and rewarding experience however it can be tedious and time-consuming. Regardless of how you feel about spring cleaning; it needs to be done.
If you’re about to embark on some spring cleaning, take a look at these five tips to make it easier:
Everything in life is easier when you have goals to aim for. Spring cleaning can appear difficult because you feel like there’s no sense of direction about what you’re doing and you can easily end up overwhelmed and with a large mess. Set goals for every hour or so – e.g. you’ll clean the bathroom by 12:30, then get the bedroom done by 14:30. Not only does this help you create goals, but it makes you work faster so you can stay on top of your schedule.
Choose a long weekend
The worst thing you can do is drag out your spring cleaning over many weeks. Instead, try and find a long weekend in spring where you can get it all done. The extra day will give you time to do an efficient job.
During your spring clean, you’ll notice your home is full of clutter. Decluttering can help free up space in your home and will make it easier when you start doing the actual cleaning of your home. Set up three different piles: keep, toss, and donate. Go through all your clutter and decide what you need to keep, what can be donated, and what should be thrown away.
Trying to handle everything on your own is probably what’s making this so hard. Instead, think about recruiting help from members of the household. Many hands make light work as they say. You could easily ask a friend or family member to come round and help you declutter and clean as well (though it might take some bribery). Delegate a room to each helper and remember to say thank you afterward.
Consider Domestic Skip Hire
Lastly, you should seriously think about skip bin hire. If you are spring cleaning your whole house, your household waste bins are bound to get full very quickly. Ordering a skip bin in Melbourne is as easy as jumping on your computer and booking it online. Skip bins come in a variety of sizes so you can find the right skip bin for the size of your cleaning job.
