Guide to Fontana Spring Cleaning
Here are some simple tips for making your spring cleaning a success this year:
Start by getting rid of things you don’t need.
Though many of us don’t like to admit it, over time, we tend to accumulate things that we just don’t need. Whether that is clothing that you haven’t worn in years or just piles of old mail, it’s important to start your spring cleaning by decluttering your space. This makes the rest of the process much less daunting.
A great place to start decluttering is your closet or storage spaces. Collect all the things that you no longer use and donate them. Though it’s sometimes hard to say goodbye to our things, you’ll feel much better once you’ve cleared out some of the clutter in your home. After the closets, work on your pantry, office space, and other areas of your home where we tend to collect things we no longer use.
Get your organization on.
Even after you’ve gotten rid of the stuff that you no longer use, you may still feel like your home feels cluttered. Working to organize your belongings can help you create a happier, healthier space. Though this takes a little planning and work, you’ll be much happier after you’ve gotten things organized.
In addition to making sure that everything in your home has its own place, you may want to invest in some baskets, bins, and other organizational equipment to help make your home feel less cluttered. These organizational tools don’t have to interrupt the design style of your home either. Just type in “home organization” on Pinterest and you’ll find an endless amount of clever and beautiful home organization inspiration for your own home.
Don’t forget indoor air quality.
When your caught up in the cleaning frenzy, it can be easy to forget about maintaining the quality of your indoor air. However, this is important for your family’s health, especially during the spring season when levels of pollen and other pollutants tend to peak. Start by changing your HVAC filter so that you have a clean slate for spring.
The act of cleaning itself can help you get a better handle on your IAQ. As dust, pollen, pet dander, and other contaminants start to accumulate in your house, this can impact the quality of your air. By vacuuming, dusting, and cleaning all of the surfaces of your home, you’re working to combat these intruders.
