Cheers for spring! We are in the middle of the season. If you haven’t caught up with your spring cleaning up, you still can. Or, if you aren’t that eager to clean, this post might motivate you.
We are now spending more time at home than we used to, and probably reorganizing and redoing your room, living room. Such has become more of a hobby now. Still, spring cleaning up tackles deep cleaning tasks that we usually neglect. If you’ve slacked up on it, try making your checklist for spring cleaning to squeeze the most out of your free time at home and have a more pleasant living space.
Good for The Mind
Clutter seems to affect our mental health by causing stress. Check out: https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/high-octane-women/201203/why-mess-causes-stress-8-reasons-8-remedies for more information. Even though you go about your day, as usual, the mess that you haven’t cleaned up continues bothering you, way in the back of your mind.
It’s time to recover some of that peace of mind. We’ll be helping with your spring cleaning up. It’s not hard to make a checklist for spring cleaning, but we want to share our take on spring cleaning up:
Cover All Areas of Your Home
Bathrooms, kitchens, and bedrooms are the first places that come to mind. Still, there are other areas that we might miss while spring cleaning up that we don’t address too often—for instance, your yard, your office, or even the garage. Even halls can be spring cleaned.
You could be missing the great opportunity of refreshing these spaces if you only focus on the areas you always clean.
Maintenance & Spring Clean Ups Are Great Pals
Seasonal maintenance is a common thing, so it’s great to pair it with your spring cleaning up. You can take advantage of this and add some general home maintenance tasks to your checklist for spring cleaning. Let’s say cleaning your gutters, replacing old batteries, cleaning up the vents, or changing your air conditioner filters. All of those maintenance tasks can easily be neglected but are essential.
- Divide your tasks by each room and consider what maintenance chores you could do in each.
- Dumpster rental services are great to place all the waste that’s leftover from your cleanings if you have a lot to throw away.
The Tormentous Unrideable Items
You know what we mean. We refer to those items you don’t know what to do with, so you end up keeping them. If you haven’t been able to dispose of these things clean up after cleanup, we think it’s time for it to go!
It is hard to know how to dispose of specific trash since it isn’t as easy as sending it to the landfill. Still, because we are experts in waste management, consider the following aspects when disposing of random items in your home that could otherwise seem to have a mysterious whereabout:
- Electronics: Tons of damaged headphones, old computers, and other electronics are not what you typically throw in the trash. For everyone’s safety and the environment as well, they should be disposed of correctly. Luckily we can help with that through our E-waste recycling services.
- Leftover construction & related items: After construction, home addition, or renovation, etc., there tend to be excess materials. After you’ve replaced specific components, let’s say roof shingles, you end up with a lot of trash. For those types of waste, you can either hire our construction cleanup services or light junk removal to get rid of roof shingles, pallet removal, and so on.
- Scrap Metal: Everything from handles, old keys, plumbing fixtures up to vehicle parts are all scrap metal. For you, it may seem like a hassle to deal with, but it can be recyclable, which is what we do, thanks to our scrap metal recycling services.
Help the Environment!
It’s not only important to help yourself but also the environment as well. Spring cleaning up your home is excellent and makes your space more pleasant. But let’s not forget about the bigger picture. We also want our environment to be pleasant as well! A1 Roll-Off Services offers multiple residential services that involve recycling, for instance, our scrap metal recycling services, as we mentioned previously. You can ask about them!
Take It Easy
It’s not mandatory to do spring cleaning, and frankly, when it is, it seems overwhelming. Luckily, there’s no right or wrong and no rules set in stone. When you do it, you can uplift your space or lift your mood.
Also, know that when spring cleaning up, A1 Services General has your back. Once you’ve cleaned up and decluttered, we take away everything that has to go, thanks to our multiple services. Enjoy your spring cleaning up!
