De-clutter for a clean slate
Posted on October 6, 2015 by adam in Carpet Cleaning
It’s darker and noticeably colder in the evenings so if you don’t want to go out why not spend a couple of nights or even a weekend or two doing something useful and therapeutic like de-cluttering your home.
Put on some music, arm yourself with a drink and tackle a room or a cupboard at a time. Pack away those summer clothes, get rid of any ‘just in case’ items that have in fact been lingering for years, fill some bags for the charity shop, clear some shelf space and you’ll soon be surprised by the benefits a damn good de-clutter can bring; more space, more money, reduced stress levels (imagine being able to actually find that thing you know is around here somewhere) and a happier you.
Need more motivation? Make your de-clutter fun by getting friends and family involved in a competition to see who can get rid of the most stuff, use Pinterest for some fantastic storage ideas or think about a throwing out party where you auction items for charity.
An additional benefit of the de-clutter is that you can clean while you go getting to the backs of those cupboards and drawers that haven’t seen a cloth for…. well longer than you care to remember.
BBC News recently featured a report from the University of Colorado which found that there are thousands of microbes found in house dust including more than 2,000 different types of fungi. Eugh! While some microbes may be linked to disease and allergies, the report stated that most are probably harmless and some are even beneficial but I think we can agree that just knowing that is enough to make us want to reach for our rubber gloves and anti-bacterial spray.
De-clutter completely and you’ll probably be able to see much more of your carpet than you have for some time so take the opportunity to do a thorough deep clean. Here at Elite Cleaning we hire a range of carpet cleaning equipment and if you don’t have time to do it yourself we also offer a deep cleaning service which means we’ll come out and do it at a time that’s convenient for you. Find out more by calling 07855 781 411.
Be amazed at how different your home looks, feels and smells after a thorough de-clutter and clean and the icing on the cake is that in future you’ll be able to clean your home more quickly and effectively. Until you fill it again at Christmas…
