Start Spring Cleaning Early in Foster City with These Tips

February 10th, 2015

It might seem counter-intuitive to think about spring cleaning in the middle of winter; we’re still in hibernation mode that pretty much disregards the state of one’s apartment. But spring is truly just around the corner, so starting early to envision clutter-free, spic and span rooms in your home isn’t a bad idea.

Luckily, there are a few standard apartment cleaning tips that will help turn that mountainous undertaking into a molehill swiftly and efficiently.

  • Get your gear in order: You can’t clean or declutter effectively if you don’t have the tools ready to use for the job. Stock up on your favorite cleaning supplies, paper towels, rubber gloves, large empty containers, and large garbage bags, and make sure your cleaning machines are in good working order.
  • Create a timeline: One of the most valuable apartment cleaning tips is the notion that you don’t have to do it all at the same time. If you can’t afford to take three days to do your entire apartment, separate each portion into doable time slots. Put it on your calendar, and stick to the plan you’ve created.
  • De-clutter first: You can’t clean until all of the junk’s either put away or eliminated. Go room by room separating stuff into three containers labeled “Keep,” “Recycle/Throw Away,” and “Undecided.” Force yourself to adhere to this task, and the rest will be so much easier!
  • Now clean: If you must go room by room, do steps three and four together within each time slot you’ve allocated. Pick the dirtiest room first. The sense of accomplishment you’ll feel once it’s done is worth the time and effort!
