The days are becoming longer and temperatures are warming up — you know what that means, it’s springtime in the Northeast! The extra sunshine and blooming flowers are a welcome sight after a cold and dreary winter. They also serve as the perfect motivation to begin clearing your home of the clutter that inevitably piles up during the rest of the year.
If you’re ready to get your spring cleaning off right, consider utilizing a mobile storage container rental to help. Here’s why:
Deep Clean Without Barriers
According to the American Cleaning Institute, 60% of the population spring cleans to give their home a thorough scrubbing. This is more than just your average vacuuming and sweeping treatment. Homeowners may use this time to wash down the interior walls, mop the floors, clean the windows, and deep clean carpets and furniture, for example.
However, accomplishing a thorough cleansing of your space is difficult when it’s cluttered by home decor, bulky furniture, and toys. With mobile storage container rentals, you can easily move these items to a safe space, leaving your home perfectly prepped for deep cleaning. This storage solution is located at ground level on your property, meaning there’s easy access to load and unload your belongings whenever you need them.
Bring Out New Decor
Ready to revamp your interior decor this season? It’s common for homeowners to take down their winter decorations during a spring cleaning session and replace them with decor that’s more appropriate for the warmer months. From switching out heavy throw blankets with light linens to taking down a picture of a winter landscape and replacing it with something that matches the season, there’s a lot of things you are likely moving around. But where will you place them all?
If you plan to redecorate, a portable storage unit can help you temporarily keep your stuff secure and out of the way as you move around other items. After moving everything that you like, you also have the opportunity to assess your decor and choose what stays and what goes. You can then take your time moving everything to a different location or maybe decide whether you need a long-term storage solution to keep your seasonal decorations and furniture safe. Either way, you can see how much additional storage you may need during your spring cleaning without purchasing a permanent storage space right away.
No More Clutter
It can be amazing how much clutter accumulates during the winter months — especially after the holidays. That’s why spring is the perfect time to take inventory of everything in your possession and decide what to discard, donate, keep, and store.
Only you can decide what to do with your belongings, but self-storage is great for items you don’t want to part with just yet or know you don’t use often but will definitely need again. Items in your garage, holiday decorations (like that bulky artificial tree), winter clothes, and memorabilia that doesn’t fit with your interior decor theme are the perfect candidates for a mobile storage unit. And remember, these units are completely secure and weather-resistant, meaning even your most prized possessions will remain safe and only accessible for you.
Keep Your Furniture Clean
Do you know that you should always clean your house from the top down? The Family Handyman explained that dusting ceiling fan blades, light fixtures, and high shelves first, and then lower areas last makes it so dust and dirt doesn’t get all over surfaces you’ve already cleaned.
But who wants dust and other grime getting all over their furniture and decor anyway? The best way to avoid this from the start is by moving your large items like sofas, chairs, and tables out of the rooms before you begin dusting. Not only does this help keep them clean (and saves you some extra cleaning time), but it also protects them from other damage that could occur as you’re cleansing the space with vacuums and supplies.
