Spring cleaning is a time during the year when people go through their homes and do a thorough clean from top to bottom. In the past, people did not get out of their homes as much during the winter and they accumulated a variety of trash and junk items.
The practice originated because cleaning was one of the top priorities when winter was over. Today this process has stuck and many people go about the process of cleaning their homes thoroughly each spring.
In many cases, doing a truly complete spring cleaning job can be a daunting task. The best way to approach this is by creating a list of areas that need to be cleaned and the tasks that need to be completed in each area. Most people start by performing the basics - picking up, washing dishes, some light dusting. It is hard to focus on out-of-the-way areas that need cleaning when the rest of the home is dirty or cluttered. Making sure that dishes are clean and the house is free of debris will make the tasks that come later much easier to perform. Once clutter is removed, the next step is to vacuum and mop.
After your home is clean, you will want to focus on areas of the home that don't often receive regular attention throughout the year. Closets are the best place to start. People have an out-of-sight, out-of-mind mentality and tend to place a lot of useless junk in their closets. Go through and take a look at all the items placed inside and evaluate their usefulness. Get rid of any useless junk and clothes that are worn out, no longer fit properly, or have gone out of style.
The next place you will want to go is the kitchen. Go through all the cabinets and see what junk items can be removed. Often we tend to put away chipped and damaged dishes thinking that we may have a use for them eventually, but it is better to get rid of them now. These items are easily replaced should the need for extras arise. Be sure to check the expiration date on all food and discard if it is out of date.
Finally, if you have a garage or store room, you will want to clean there. These are areas that often require professional junk removal services. Any unusable items like broken tools or lawn equipment should be either fixed or discarded. Many people have broken appliances in these places as well. Those items may require special disposal to avoid the release of dangerous chemicals.
Once you have finished your spring cleaning, you will find that you have much more space available. A good way to get rid of all the unwanted junk is to have a yard sale. As the old saying goes, one man's trash is another's treasure.
