Your guide to spring cleaning: Part one

For basketball fans, “March Madness” is a term that describes several exciting weeks of games, rivalry and predictions.

Turner Farms Self Storage in Garner, NC can help you reduce clutter like this.For others, it means something completely different — several exhausting weeks of dusting, hauling and organizing. In other words, spring cleaning.

During the next few weeks, we’ll be exploring this topic, which is timely not just in our industry, but in the average family’s world as well. Some say it’s an ancient Persian tradition that has made its way into modern American life; whatever its origins, it’s a task that’s at once necessary and daunting.

But does it have to be daunting? Spring cleaning means going beyond the weekly maintenance dusting/vacuuming/putting away. With that in mind, forget about doing it all at once. To make it manageable — and less intimidating — it’s best to break it up into small projects.

We’ve scoured the web to find the most useful tips for tackling the Big Spring Clean. We’ll take it one step at a time, starting with…

  1. Make a list. That’s right—the first step requires no cleaning at all. While going through each room in your house (physically rather than mentally; you’ll need a visual), think about what needs to be done, and jot it down. Careful here: Spring cleaning is a time to focus on getting rid of clutter and banishing the dust bunnies — not getting started on a painting or repair project.
  2. Divide and conquer. When you’re done, divide your house into sections by a room or set of rooms. You’ll want anywhere from four to six sections.
  3. Create a checklist. Come up with a master cleaning checklist to apply to each room. The checklist might include: wiping down baseboards, dusting, cleaning the ceiling fan, vacuuming/mopping the floor, washing the drapes, and cleaning the windows. It will depend on the room, but be comprehensive when coming up with the list so you don’t miss anything.

That’s it for now. Our next blog post will talk about what to do next. Stay tuned. In the meantime, if Turner Farms Self Storage can help you with any step of the spring cleaning process, please contact us.
