We are in the height of spring and with it comes the spring cleaning season, not only for homes but for offices and other business establishments that often rely on general cleaning services to help get themselves in order.
However, whilst spring cleaning can be sometimes quite intimidating at first, if you take it a step at a time and follow some of our top tips, you can get everything in order without feeling like you want to pull your hair out.
One Step At A Time
Part of the reason why many people end up giving up on spring cleaning or finding a particular hassle is in part because they focus on too many tasks at once and the enormity can get to be too much.
Ultimately, work on one room at a time, cleaning from the top of your home or working space to the bottom and cleaning the top part of each room first will help keep you motivated, focused and able to complete each individual step. Before you know it, the entire home or office is clean.
Invest In Storage
Rooms often look more cluttered than they really are if you do not have enough storage to put everything away neatly, but it does not have to be this way.
Just a few storage bins and boxes can help to make a major change in a room and keep it clutter-free.
Be Realistic And Kind To Yourself
Focus on the tasks you need to complete, rather than setting hard deadlines or burning yourself out trying to get everything done. Instead, focus on priority spaces that are either used the most or cause the most problems when trying to keep them clean.
This is also true in an office; focus on keeping your individual working space clean first and help out with cleaning communal spaces or keeping them clean, but do not try to take on more cleaning tasks than you are comfortable with.
