Freshen Up Your Home This Spring with Decluttering and Cleaning Tips

As the weather warms up and flowers start to bloom, it’s the perfect time to give your home a fresh start. Spring cleaning is not just about tidying up, but also decluttering and deep cleaning to make your space feel renewed. In this blog post, we will explore ways to declutter your belongings, how self storage units can help in the process, tips for sorting items for a garage sale or storage unit, organic cleaning supplies for a healthier home, and what areas inside and outside of your home you should focus on cleaning this spring.

The first step in freshening up your home this spring is decluttering. Start by going through your belongings and separating items into categories like keep, donate, sell, or toss. Consider renting a self storage unit to temporarily store items that you want to keep but don’t have space for at the moment. Self storage units are convenient and affordable options for storing seasonal items or sentimental belongings.

When sorting items for a garage sale or storage unit, be sure to price items competitively and organize them neatly for display. Consider donating any unsold items to local charities or thrift stores. For larger items that won’t fit in a storage unit, consider selling them online through platforms like Facebook Marketplace.

Switching to organic cleaning supplies can help reduce exposure to harmful chemicals while still effectively cleaning your home. Look for natural ingredients like vinegar, baking soda, essential oils, and citrus fruits when shopping for cleaning products. These ingredients are safe for your family and pets while being tough on dirt and grime.

When tackling indoor spring cleaning tasks, focus on areas like window sills, baseboards, ceilings fans, light fixtures, and appliances. Don’t forget to deep clean carpets and upholstery as well. Outside of your home, consider power washing your house siding, sidewalks, driveways, deck or patio furniture, and outdoor play equipment.

Spring is the perfect time to refresh your living space by decluttering and deep cleaning. By following these tips, you can create a clean and organized space that feels brand new this season. Happy spring cleaning!
