Spring is coming!

September 1st to be exact, so it’s time to get rid of those winter blues, revitalize your home and prepare for warmer weather. We have put together some helpful tips to get you motivated to get in and start your spring clean.

1. Declutter

Before you start preparing for spring, get rid of items that are needlessly filling up your home. Step number one: Tackle your unwanted items. Clothing: Ditch the heavy outerwear and winter boots for lighter clothing and accessories. For clothes you will no longer need during spring, consider donating them to a local op shop or placing them into seasonal storage.

3. Clean like a machine.

Why not take the time to rid your home of dirt, dust and other allergens to turn your home into a refreshing atmosphere? Dust down and wash any blinds, floorboards, window sills and corners. Vacuum and flip your mattress over to provide even wear, and replace your bed with clean bedding.

4. Maximize home storage.

As you begin your cleaning process, consider the space you already have in your home that you may not be taking advantage of. This will allow you to create (and keep) an organized space. Open Shelving: As you clean your kitchen, bathroom, office spaces and more, look for existing space on the wall that may come in handy. Open wall shelves can create a light, refreshing look (especially while spring is in the air). You can keep your home organized, functional and bright – all while saving space.

6. Consider storage unit options.

For seasonal belongings, oversized items, or accessories you haven’t yet found a home for, renting a storage unit can be a space-saving and accessible way to store your things. For fragile items like wood, antiques or furniture, climate-controlled storage can protect from humidity, temperature and the elements. As you tackle your spring cleaning checklist, consider renting a storage unit to prolong the life of your belongings.
