Is your home looking a little rough this year? With people spending far more time inside the home than ever before, it’s no surprise that many people are struggling to keep their homes decluttered and clean. With a new season just around the corner, most everyone can use a little help tidying up. If you’re looking for tips on how to get your home organized and keep it that way, this article is for you.
The Preliminary Clean
The first thing you should prioritize when you’re looking to get your home organized is to do a preliminary deep clean. While it may seem counterintuitive as you’ll also be cleaning out your closets later in the process, it’ll make getting to all of the nooks and crannies in your home a little less work. If you’ve got a lot on your plate, you may want to consider hiring a cleaning service Fort Walton Beach FL to get most of the work done before you get to the more intensive parts of the cleaning process. This preliminary clean will take a burden off of the rest of the job, and is a great way to begin.
The Big Throwaway
The next step in deep cleaning your home is to go through all your cabinets (yes, every single one), and throw away any items that you no longer find useful. A helpful metric for discerning what you should get rid of if you’re having trouble is if you haven’t used it in the past year, it’s likely due for the bin. Donate lightly-worn clothing and used furniture and dishes to thrift stores to decrease the amount of unnecessary waste.
The Last Deep Clean
After all your closets and cabinets are cleaned out, it’s time to scrub and sanitize surfaces and reorganize the items in your home. This is a great time to add organizational features to your home like storage bins and spice holders.
