3 steps to a successful spring clean

A spring clean is something that every homeowner takes part in once in a while. This is because it can offer a number of benefits. It produces less dirt, clutter and chaos in a home. Rearranging items during a clean-out can also give your home a fresh and new look. Most importantly, you can get rid of all your accumulated junk during your spring cleaning process. With so many benefits to offer, no wonder so many proud home owners love a good spring clean!

There are two facets of spring cleaning your home – first, clear-out and second, organise. In this article, I will provide you with some expert tips on how to give your home a thorough spring clean, keeping in mind both these facets. As a professional in the rubbish removal industry I’ll be providing you with my expert tips, so make sure to follow these suggestions for a successful spring clean!

1. Collect items that must go into the trash

When you spring clean your home, it is always a good practice to walk from one room to another carrying a large rubbish bag. Collect all items that are broken and items that you don’t want anymore and throw them the rubbish bag. Next, pick up objects that you do not use and think about the last time when the item was used. Ask yourself if you truly value the item and if it is irreplaceable. If not throw it into the rubbish bag also. Do this in every room of your house.  After you’re done, you can put all your accumulated rubbish into one of our skip bins.

2. Find items that can be donated

Once you’re done collecting all the junk from around your house, find a large box. Start collecting things that you may not need but can be used by others. You’ll be surprised at the number of working items you come across that you’re ready to part with. Unless you really love an item, place it carefully into the box to be donated. Again, do this for every room.

3. Collect items that you can sell

Now, you have collected two types of items – a rubbish bag with junk items which you need to throw away and a box with items that you want to give away. Take a second look at your donation box and see if there is any item that is worth selling. Many people may be willing to pay for certain items and it makes no sense donating these. Gather all such items and store them in a second box. You can either sell these items in your own yard sale or take them to a yard seller’s site.
