Make the Most of Your Springtime Space
As the last traces of winter weather disappear, the time has come to open the windows of your house and let the fresh springtime air in. Spring has finally arrived and that musky, stale feeling in your house needs to be aired out! It's time for spring cleaning! It may not be your favorite chore, but it certainly is necessary to fully enjoy the spring weather. So put on your cleaning clothes, open the blinds and get ready to let spring in! You might want to consider a full organizational overhaul. Using Thornwood, NY storage units to store excess belongings will help you make the most of your springtime space.
One Room at a Time
The task of tackling springtime cleaning may seem daunting, but if you strategize effectively you'll be finished in no time. Spread out your cleaning over time instead of trying to tackle it all in one day. Go room by room and you can cross off one room a day. We suggest starting with the least lived in rooms; they'll take less time and are less likely to get messy shortly after cleaning.
Work Top to Bottom
Whether you're reorganizing or cleaning, work from top to bottom. Any mess or extra belongings that end up on the floor won't ruin any work you've already done. If you're planning on placing belongings in storage, they can be put aside to be packed.
Pack it up first.
To make your cleaning more effective, get rid of extra belongings first. This way you'll clear up space and avoid having to clean again after reorganizing. Labeling boxes by room and contents can help you find items easily in storage. Click here to see a list of packing supplied available at your neighborhood Safeguard Self Storage.
After surfaces have been cleared and you've decided what belongings to store, you can focus on cleaning. Dust off surfaces and blinds, and wipe down glass with glass cleaner. Ceiling fans also collect a lot of dust. When you're done with the furniture and surfaces in the room, you can clean the floors according to their material.
Items that only get used during colder seasons really have no place in a springtime space. Heavy winter clothing and overflowing Christmas decorations can be safely stored in Thornwood, NY storage units until next year. Rather than continuously dealing with shoving these belongings in closets or limited storage space, keep them in a storage unit and out of your way.
Spring cleaning is a good time take stock of your stuff while getting ready for springtime weather. If an overflow of belongings is keeping your house from feeling 'spring fresh', contact Safeguard Self Storage to find a storage unit near you.
