Spring Refresh: 4 Ways to Prepare Your Home

2 Comment(s) | Posted | by Norm Kotoch, Jr. |

Spring is fast approaching, and homeowners are starting to think about their annual spring cleaning rituals.

While decluttering your home can be a daunting and time-consuming task, planning ahead can help ease the process. 

Below, we provide four tips to help you reduce stress and simplify spring cleaning this year.

1. Create a Cleaning Schedule

Distribute cleaning tasks over several days to mitigate stress. Keep organized by cleaning one room completely before moving on to the next, and create a schedule that prioritizes the rooms you use most often:

  • Bedroom.
  • Kitchen.
  • Living room.
  • Restrooms.

2. Purchase Cleaning Supplies

After creating a schedule, determine what cleaning supplies you will need for each room. Evaluate your current inventory, and purchase additional supplies to ensure you have a sufficient amount to complete each task:

  • All-purpose cleaner.
  • Broom.
  • Buckets.
  • Floor polish.
  • Glass cleaner.
  • Rubber gloves.
  • Sponges.
  • Storage containers.
  • Vacuum.

3. Swap Winter Items for Spring Equipment

Many homeowners keep spring and summer items in self-storage units during the winter to preserve their integrity. As the weather gets warmer, consider swapping winter items for spring and summer belongings:   

4. Prepare Winter Items for Storage

Conversely, ensure items, such as holiday decorations and winter clothing, are safeguarded in a climate-controlled storage unit to preserve their integrity for the next cold season. To simplify spring cleaning for the following year, categorize your items before storing them:

  • Items that are similar in size.
  • Items that are found in the same room.
  • Items to preserve in self storage.
  • Items to repurpose for the warmer season.                                                                                                
  • Items to sell, donate or throw away.
  • Items you may use during the spring and summer.

Homeowners can tidy up and ensure a smoother spring refresh by planning ahead, organizing and utilizing self-storage units.
