Tips that Will Help You Get a Jump on Your Spring Cleaning

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Hearthside

Spring is almost here in Bucks County and with it, the need to clean out the clutter and freshen up your home. Let's explore a few tips that will help you to get a jump on your spring cleaning so that you can get outside and enjoy the nice weather later.

Need It? No? It's Got to Go!

Do you consider yourself a bit of a 'hoarder'? Is there furniture, appliances and other items in your home that have been collecting dust since the '90s? If so, it is time to minimalize your lifestyle. A great rule of thumb is the one in bold above – if you don't need it, it's time to get rid of it. Consider listing anything you don't need up for sale on Craigslist or the Facebook Marketplace as you may find an interested buyer willing to give your old stuff a new home. Once you have the clutter kicked out, the actual cleaning can begin.

Your Garage Is Not A Storage Locker

If your garage is so full of miscellaneous junk that you can barely get your car door open, it's time for a thorough cleaning. Again, the first mission is to get all of the stuff you don't need either thrown out or otherwise disposed of.

Letting go of your old possessions can be tough, but you will be amazed at how much space you have once it's all gone. And that space can be put to better use – once it's cleaned.

Consider Hiring Help for The Deep Clean

Finally, don't be afraid to enlist professional help if you are feeling overwhelmed. Having a couple of cleaners come into your home for a few hours is a cost-effective way to speed up the spring cleaning process. Note that it's best to have cleaners join you after the clutter has been removed, so they aren't wasting their time trying to move old furniture and other items you are going to dispose of anyway.

Unless you absolutely love washing walls and cleaning out closets, spring cleaning is rarely fun. However, it is necessary to ensure that your home stays in tip-top condition.

Great list Martin!  Some sellers don't like getting the home "show-ready", but it will prove to save them a LOT of money by bringing an offer faster and for MORE $$.

Such great tips Martin. It's so easy to resort to allowing a garage to become a storage locker. Mind if I re-share this post on my social media?
