When spring turns up on your doorstep, a deep itch to clean takes hold as the season of renewal knocks impatiently on your door. Let the season in by injecting organizing energy and making a fresh start to the year. Better yet, use the following four home rejuvenating secrets and cleansing tips to refresh your living space.
Declutter and Organize Your Home
Mother Nature can call on the wind and the sun to sweep away the winter, but you need some organizing smarts to match her seasonal ways. Remove objects that are not in use, placing them in allocated storage closets. Label when possible, or consider practicing a little Feng Shui, the Chinese art of harmonizing your environment, to open floor space.
Employ Light and Texture
Your spring cleaning itch calls for a deeper dive into the home reinvigoration mindset. Clean light fixtures and shades to restore lost light, but consider adding new fixtures and furnishings. Add mirrors, air fresheners, and open the windows to eject stale air. In other words, break down the barriers you’ve created between your interior and the outside, barriers that had a purpose in the winter but must fall when spring arrives.
Reclaim the Airy Space of Your Home
Reduced space feels so claustrophobic. And, from a practical standpoint, boxes under beds and bags in closets will hamper cleaning efforts. Pack the gear and relocate it in a safe storage unit when your closets threaten to burst. Take advantage of a Tucson storage unit or one in your area to add more storage space and relieve overburdened closets.
Clean As a Showroom
Autumn and winter came, leaving a murky cloud of allergens and dust. They settle and drain energy from your house, dulling every surface. Restore vital energy to every room by scrubbing the grime free. A strong vacuum cleans the carpet, but this is spring, a time to call in the deep cleaners. Use a shampooing service or rent the appliance from a store to properly wash away dirt.
The urge to clean during the spring months sends homeowners scurrying for brushes and organizational aids, but the work carries many benefits. It can take a day or more, but, on finishing, you’re left with fresh air, clean surfaces, and a freshly scrubbed home. In fact, the cleaning itch is dissipating, but it’s been replaced by a feeling that the year ahead has truly begun.
