How to get ready for spring cleaning
It’s almost spring, which means it’s time to start thinking about spring cleaning. Check out these tips to make it easy, convenient and hassle free.
The first step to any good spring cleaning process is to see what you have in your home. That way, you can determine what you want to keep and what you want to trash. What’s taking up the most space? Do you have any junk lying around that you know you never use? Is it time to sort through your closet to see what you’re not wearing? Is your dining room paper overrun by paper mail and clutter? Only when you determine exactly what is cluttering up your home can you start to get rid of it.

Clear out the clutter.
Start with the closet and decide what you can get rid of. If you haven’t worn something in more than a year, it’s time for it to go. (Be sure to do some online research to see where you can donate your unwanted items.) Go through your kitchen cabinets. Do you have mismatching food storage containers? Trash them!
Opt for a trash removal service.
Like most people, you may have more clutter than you know what to do with once you start the spring cleaning process. If that’s the case, consider hiring a rubbish removal service, such as DiMola Bros., to make the entire process easier. DiMola Bros. provides free estimates and reasonable prices for rubbish removal jobs of all sorts. DiMola Bros can remove junk from a single room, a full house or a cozy apartment.

Start the deep clean.
Once you’ve taken inventory of your stuff and gotten rid of what you don’t need, it’s time to get on your hands and knees and start scrubbing. To make the most of your spring cleaning, remove all of the plates, bowls, glasses and other items from you kitchen cabinets and scrub inside of them. Clean the stove, oven and microwave. Clear off your kitchen counter and island completely to give it a good clean. Take all of the books and other items off of you bookshelves and dust them completely. Wipe all framed photos hanging on the wall. Sweeps and mop the floors in every room. Pull everything out of your bathroom cabinets and scrub before putting back. The key here is to avoid doing the typical weekly wipe down and instead really scrub.
Just because you’ve finished your spring cleaning doesn’t mean you can’t keep it going. Aim to clean out your closet once a month. Try to give your entire home a good deep clean at least that often. And work on changing your cleaning and clutter mentality — when you stay organized throughout the year, a spring clean doesn’t seem so tedious.
