Winter shuts down fun with its cold and spring can still be gloomy. But the fairer days of summer are knocking at your door to deliver more fun under longer daylight hours. You can ready your home for those welcome days with these tips.
Declutter your home by getting rid of all the stuff that you’ve been collecting over the past few months and have been afraid to throw out because it’s just too cold. This can include Christmas decorations, piles of catalogs and magazines, gifts that you neither want nor can use, and all the schoolwork that the kids have been bringing home.
Make three piles: one for things that you can sell online or in the garage sale, one for stuff you can give away to charities or people you know, and stuff to throw away. If your pile of things to get rid of becomes unusually large, you can rent a dumpster from Debris Box. If you’re eco-conscious, and who isn’t nowadays, the company can also help take care of materials that can be recycled.
You won’t be needing heavy blankets, thick drapes, furry furniture throws, and bulky winter wear, so you can remove them from your interiors. If any of them seem musty, hang them out in the summer sun to replace the unpleasant smells with fresh, natural smells. Then box them up for the basement, hide them in the attic or the back of your closets.
An often forgotten part of your spring-cleaning regimen is the deep cleaning of your refrigerator. This appliance takes care of itself as it serves you and your family, but it can still gather bits of food, spilled liquids, and other debris.
Now is the time to empty the interior of any goods and take the shelves and drawers out for a thorough washing. Leave them to air dry in the sun as you wipe down the interior of the fridge. When you return the pieces to your fridge, you’ll have a space that’s ready for summer food and drinks.
Your rugs also deserve some deep cleaning. Hang them out in the sun and give them a good beating to eliminate any dust, dirt, and mustiness. Airing them out will eliminate the smells of winter.
Spruce Up the Outside
Organize your exteriors and garden shed. Arrange your lawn and patio furniture outside. Hide your snowblower in the black and move your mower up front so you can mow your lawn. Give the BBQ a deep cleaning to prep it for your first outdoor feast.
Winter debris, broken furniture, and broken garden tools can all disappear into a roll-off dumpster from Debris Box. The company can also help with leaves, branches, sod, and other organic yard waste.
