Spring Cleaning: Simple Tips and Tricks on How To Effectively Clean Your Home
Issue: Jan 2021
Spring cleaning is often regarded by many people as a massive and momentous undertaking that represents a new beginning in anticipation of the Lunar New Year, and a sense of achievement. However, like many others, you may dread it because of the amount of time and energy it takes!
You're probably one of the many who want to clean their homes more effectively and quickly, but have no idea how to do so. In this article, we will be sharing with you how to do your spring cleaning fast and well, so you can get ready for a wonderful festivity!
1. Have the proper tools ready
One of the most important aspects of spring cleaning is the tools that you will be using. Lay out all the necessary equipment in the places you will be using them, so that you don't have to keep going back and forth to set things up. Fill up several buckets and prepare a multitude of rags early, as constantly changing and refilling one bucket breaks the flow of your cleaning.It is easier to keep going for longer, then change and refill the buckets all at once at the end.
Another way of having the proper tools near you is to carry the necessary cleaning equipment with you in a caddy or a small bucket. You can store cleaning tools and products such as micro-fibre cleaning cloths and cleaning agents in a trolley, or carry them in a small bucket, which will allow you to carry them around as you clean.
2. Have a cleaning routine or system
When you have a routine or system for cleaning your home, you will be able to spring clean your home in a quicker and more effective fashion. Creating and following a routine organises your efforts and ensures there is no wasted movement, or wasted time. As you save time, you will also save energy, ensuring you can do more in the same period of time--and not finish completely drained.
A good routine would be to divide your home into areas, and completely cleaning one area before another. For example you can go room by room, or you can finish all the windows first, then all the furniture, then the entire floor at once. It is also good to be systematic in your cleaning--for example, clean from the ceiling down to ensure that you don't re-contaminate the lower areas with dust from higher up that you didn't clean first.
3. Enlist the help of your family or housemates
Have you ever felt that spring cleaning is exhausting when doing it alone? Having your family or roommates help you out will prevent you from feeling worn out after doing a round of spring cleaning, as the list of tasks will be split up among multiple people! Spring cleaning will also be quicker and more effective, as now you have a few people to lighten the load for each other.
4. Discard or Store the Clutter You Don't Need
An essential element of Lunar New Year spring cleaning is to "get rid of the old". As you clean, it's time to take stock of what you have, identify the items you no longer need, or do not immediately need, and either throw them away, or store them with a conveniently located self storage provider like StorHub so they are out of your immediate way yet still available whenever you need them. There's no point spring cleaning if your house is as cluttered with stuff as it was before after you finish!
