6 Spring Cleaning Tips to Refresh Your Home24/03/16
It’s time to shake off those winter blues, revitalise your home and prepare for the warmer weather. It’s coming, honest!
Spring cleaning sounds simple, but it can be hard to get started and stay motivated. Taking a methodical approach is the key to success. It may sound obvious, but setting objectives and breaking the tasks down into manageable steps will help.
Here are Le Gallais’ spring cleaning tips to help get your home in tip-top condition.
1. Get rid of clutter
It’s time to clear out and get rid of those items needlessly filling up your home.
If you haven’t worn clothes for more than 12 months, do you really still need them? When clearing old gear out of cupboards and wardrobes, ask “Does this coat / sandwich toaster / set of golf clubs add anything positive to my life?” If the answer’s no, it’s got to go! Donate unwanted items to a local charity, or if you can’t bear to be parted, put them in a storage unit.
2. Swap out Seasonal Gear
Over the winter months, garages and sheds become popular storage areas for barbecues, sports equipment and patio furniture. With nice weather around the corner, it’s time to boost your curb appeal and get your garage back into summer shape. This means not cluttering it up with winter sports gear, winter clothes or heavy bedding...
Why not book a storage unit to house all your winter gear? And when you retrieve it next autumn, you can put your summer gear in its place. Easy. Reclaim your garage!
3. Clean like a machine
It is estimated that we spend at least 90% of our time inside, so why not make the most of this time to rid your home of any dirt, dust and other allergens and create a refreshing atmosphere. The hard work will be worth it when you stand back with a feeling of real satisfaction!
4. Maximise home storage
Look around you. What space is there that you aren’t using to its full capacity? Open wall shelves can create a light, refreshing look - especially while spring is in the air. You can keep your home organized, functional and bright, all while saving space.
5. Make cleaning a routine
We are more relaxed, happy and balanced when we are living and working in a clean space. A spring clean is good for the soul!
6. Consider storage unit options
We see first hand the positive difference it makes to people’s lives when they take the step to put possessions into storage.
For seasonal belongings, oversized items, or accessories you haven’t yet found a home for, renting a storage unit can be a space-saving and accessible way to store your things.
As you tackle your spring cleaning checklist, consider renting a storage unit to free up space at home.
