Now that a new season has arrived and warmer months are just around the corner, it is the perfect time to begin spring cleaning your home.
Thinking of cleaning your entire household can feel overwhelming. Here are 4 recommendations which will make the spring-cleaning process less stressful and how using a small storage unit in SE Calgary can assist.
1. Create a Checklist
While thinking about cleaning can seem stressful, if you write down a list of what needs to be done, it can help organize your thoughts. You can list each room in the home along with what needs to be done in each room. For example, if you are cleaning the kitchen your checklist would include:
- Organizing the pantry
- Cleaning the microwave
- Removing all unwanted items from the fridge
Once you have completed a task, you can check it off your list which gives you a feeling of accomplishment. If you have any rooms on your list with extra clutter you don’t have room for in your home, a small self-storage unit in SE Calgary can help. You can use the storage unit to store things temporarily during the spring-cleaning process or long-term and include it in your cleaning checklist.
2. Clean One Room at a Time
If you start cleaning one room and then move on to another without it being finished, it can seem like your spring cleaning will never get done. We highly recommend tackling one room at a time until it is completed. Begin with the room you are most motivated to clean. If you have extra boxes and items around the home, using a small self-storage unit can assist you. If you need extra space down the road, it is easy to transfer to a different size unit.
3. Get The Entire Household Involved
You don’t have to do this alone. Get the entire household involved, including the kids. This takes pressure off you having to do it all yourself. Put some music on and give them an incentive to complete each task. This is much more efficient and fun as your family works through cleaning your home together.
If the kids have old toys which they don’t use, consider throwing a garage sale or storing the items until you decide what to do with them. You can have the entire household help move things that need to go into your storage unit.
4. Put Your Seasonal Items in Self Storage
Now that the winter is over, you can put your winter belongings in storage to free up space in your home. Winter clothing, sports equipment, gear, and decorations all take up valuable space. The best way to free up space around your home is by renting a small self-storage unit in Calgary. When you need the items again next winter, you can take them out and swap your summer gear and clothing into the unit. You can make use of this self-storage unit year-round.
Spring cleaning can seem like a daunting task when you think about it and the time it will take to complete. You can make this process much less stressful and more efficient by creating a checklist, cleaning one room at a time, getting your household involved, and putting your seasonal belongings into a small self-storage unit.
