Get a Jump Start on Spring Cleaning and Give Your Tired Spaces a Fresh Look.

Spring is right around the corner, and you know what that means-time to deep clean and freshen up your home, inside and out! Here are some of my favourite tips that will help you dive into this dreaded task, so that you can start enjoying your spaces sooner rather than later.

When in Doubt, Throw It Out!

I know that I can all be a bit of a 'hoarder' at times, too, but that doesn't mean it has to stay that way forever. Is there stuff lying around your home that has been collecting dust for a few decades? If you answered yes to them, it is time to get minimal. The first thing to remember: don't keep anything you don't need! If it is something of value, use Craigslist, eBay, or Facebook Marketplace to find a buyer. You can't start the cleaning until the clutter is gone.

Stop Stuffing Everything in Your Garage.

If you're parking in the driveway because you don't have room to open your car doors when you pull into the garage, you've got too much stuff. Get started with sorting, listing online, and then the cleaning can finally begin.

Giving up things you are attached to isn't easy, but you will be amazed at how awesome you feel when it is all done, and how much more you can enjoy your spaces. After all, you'll have so much extra space to put to use when you're not using it for hoarding old stuff.

Hire a Professional Deep-Cleaner.

It is easy to feel overwhelmed when faced with a monumental cleaning task. Enlisting the help of others can minimise that feeling. Hiring professionals is a great way to get things done faster and better than you could have done it yourself. Don't bother calling them until you've hauled your junk away, or you'll be wasting their time and your money.

 Unless you get a thrill from washing down walls and purging hoarded possessions, Spring cleaning isn't fun for anyone. However, you shouldn't avoid it if you want your home to stay in great shape. If your needs for your space change-smaller or larger, you can give me a call. I'm an experienced and friendly real estate agent who can show you some beautiful options that I'm sure will perfectly suit your needs.
