Spring cleaning can be hard, overwhelming, and tiring. Some days you may feel like you don’t even have the energy to clean. But following these few tips that Nadia’s House Cleaning has for you can help you get your home clean and organized without feeling stressed.
Clean in Small Time Frames
Looking at your whole house and thinking you need to clean it can be overwhelming but when you break down sections in your home and you only clean one section throughout the day, week, or months this can be a little more doable. It will make you feel more accomplished and not overwhelmed.
Get Rid of Clutter
When you are cleaning throughout your house you need to declutter your home. This means you choose to either keep, throw away, or donate various items in your home that may make if feel more cluttered. This can help free up space, decrease stress in your life, and also help reduce the risk of tripping over an item and falling.
Find Someone to Lift Heavy Objects when Cleaning
When you get older, often strength and mobility decrease. To prevent injuries from happening don’t try to move a heavy object by yourself. You want to stay safe while you are cleaning. So, hire friends or family to help move the heavy objects for you. If you do not have friends and family close by then you can always hire a professional to come in and move the furniture for you.
Sort Medicine Cabinet
A medicine cabinet can often be overlooked, with medicine that keeps piling up year after year. It is important while you are cleaning that you go through your medicine cabinet also. Go through each medicine and look at the dates and see if they have expired. Any medicine, prescription, or over-the-counter that has expired or that you no longer need then get rid of them. Make sure that you safely dispose of the medicine. If you do not know how to dispose of the medicine you can look up the FDA flush list.
Check Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Detectors
You should have both smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors in your home to keep you safe. Make sure that they are functioning properly and that they have new batteries. If they are too high to reach then contact family or friends to come to change them out.
While spring cleaning your house you want to organize your kitchen. Go through your fridge and your pantry and look at all the expiration dates and if anything is expired throw it away. You do not want old expired food in your home. Once you have thrown away all the old expired food. Then go through and organize it. This way you know where things are and you can have easy access to them.
Clean Washing Machines
