The Importance of Following Proper Waste Disposal MethodsMarch 15, 2022
The days are getting longer at last; the birds are chirping and there are a few green shoots showing in the garden. This can only mean one thing and that is spring is here!
For many of us the arrival of spring means that it is time to get some spring cleaning done in our homes and yards. After what seems like many months of winter, spring is the time to sweep out the cobwebs, open the windows and get your house and garden ready for the warmer months.
Why is it Good to Spring Clean?
Spring cleaning allows us to get to those areas of the home that may have been overlooked or ignored while cleaning during the long winter months. It also is the time to do those chores like clearing out closets, your attic, and basement that may have escaped your attention over the past few months.
A thorough spring cleaning of your house is actually beneficial to your health and obviously that of your family’s. Getting rid of the dust, mold, and mildew that has built up after our houses have been closed up during the cold months results in a beautiful fresh clean home. And a clean home will reduce the occurrence of germs which will help you and your family avoid illnesses, allergy symptoms and asthma.
How Long Does It Take to Spring Clean?
Put aside a weekend to carry out a thorough spring clean. But if you want to carry the spring clean over to your yard, it may take a few extra days. If you have some help from a partner or family member, chores will go quicker. The important thing is once you have decided to embark on your spring cleaning journey, try to persevere until you have finished. It is a good idea not to spread your spring clean out over too many days as you do not want to lose interest halfway through. A clean healthy home will be the reward at the end of this journey so stay focused, put your head down and just do it!
When Should I Start Spring Cleaning?
When you feel the wind getting warmer, you feel like opening up your windows to let the fresh air in, and you start planning some of those summer activities like barbeques could be the signal to get started. But more practically, probably when you have two days in a row that you can commit to cleaning.
How do You Prepare for Spring Cleaning?
Before you get started, you need to decide what needs to be done so the best way is to create a checklist of spring cleaning chores. Make sure you have your family members on board and assign some of the tasks to them. Even the younger members can help with the spring clean, especially if you make it fun for them.
Inside the House
If you decide to start inside the house, go through the rooms and make a list of what needs to be cleaned. The basics of spring cleaning is dusting surfaces, walls, furniture, and closets. Bathrooms and the kitchen need to be cleaned and disinfected. Appliances such as fridges and stoves need to be cleaned, as do windows.
This is an ideal opportunity to declutter your closets. Once you have decided what items are no longer useful to you what are you going to do with them? If you find there is a big pile of items you wish to trash you can get a professional waste removal company such as Little Green Junk to fetch this waste and remove it from your property. By using our services you do not have to wait for the day that your trash is removed by the local authorities. You may also have items you wish to have removed that your regular waste removal service provider doesn’t take away. A further advantage of using Little Green Junk is that we can come any time, even after hours or over a weekend to remove your unwanted trash.
Once you have cleaned inside of your house it is time to move outside. This is the time to carry out those maintenance items like touching up paint trim, cleaning out gutters, washing outside windows and power washing decks and driveways.
You may have to replace broken bricks, repair, or replace cracked concrete driveways. Little Green Junk is able to remove any construction waste like old bricks, stones, and concrete pieces. This is unsightly waste that should be removed as soon as you have finished building.
The garage may need a good clean out to make space for the winter sporting equipment such as sleds, skis, etc. that make winter so much fun. If there is no space for their storage, consider hiring a storage unit nearby to store these items.
