You may have heard of spring cleaning. Each year, you likely stand on chairs to dust the areas of the house you usually cannot get to, wade through the collections that have built up in your home and wonder ‘just how did I come to own all of this stuff?!’ Well, I'm sure that many of us do the same with our annual new year home clean.
Don’t worry, you’re normal. Almost all families are doing the same thing at that time of year. However, as it’s now September, it’s not uncommon to thankfully feel that season is some time away. While the progression of the years and months does not change, sometimes, there are special considerations.
In this case, we are about to head into a new year. As such, as a nice means of tailing off the end of this year and greeting the new one with the freshest household possible, it can be that doing the new year home clean takes precedence over the spring clean, to the extent that you can.
It could even be that this helps you enjoy a cleaner, neater Christmas and new year celebration, rested in the fact that all of your organizational needs are taken care of. With the following advice, we hope you’ll be able to achieve just that.
A Mass Declutter
While you might have sold certain items off there, fixed up other belongings and stored other items away, it could be that a new decade is a great marker to undergo ‘the great declutter.’ A home that is heavily decluttered can feel new and completely rejuvenated, not to mention all of the excess space around. We would recommend placing your valuable belongings in storage if you hope to sell them, or perhaps giving away certain items.
But what metric should you go by to understand if you should keep something or not? Well, aside from sentimental and valuable items, or decorative items such as furniture, you might decide that it if hasn’t been used in six months, it goes to one of these two outcomes. Labelling each item in your house this way can help you get rid of more stuff than you might have expected. Although, remember, this is your home and these are your belongings, so if you wish to keep something, no one is forcing you to part with it.
Reorienting The Rooms
It can be hard to clean behind every huge furniture item or get into every nook and cranny. That is unless you make the effort of shaking up this environment just a little. Reorienting the rooms can have a worthwhile effect in helping a place sparkle, feel comfortable, and gain a new identity. You might change the focal point of your living room change the positioning of the bed in your master bedroom. When you do this, you set a new stage for the upcoming decade.
Paying for deep cleaning services, such as expert and thorough carpet cleaning, can help you keep things tidy and the room as spic and span as you had hoped. It’s these investments that can help a room refresh itself completely. The same can go for stains on the paintwork, or perhaps damage in wooden furniture.
With this advice, you’re certain to organise the new year home clean effectively.
