Spring is here, which ushers in the perfect time to clean your apartment and get rid of the excess. Take some time to do some spring cleaning this April. In this week’s Wildwood Park Apartments Blog, we’ve got a few spring cleaning tips to aid you in your endeavors of tidying your home. By utilizing these tips we have for you, you’ll be able to give your home a fresh look.

Declutter

One of the easiest ways to make your home a little tidier is by decluttering. Clutter can be defined as a collection of things strewn about in an untidy manner. Clutter can also come in many forms like loose leaf papers, clothes that aren’t worn regularly, and appliances that have fallen into disrepair. The best way to approach removing clutter is by combing through your home and finding items that have not experienced use in the past year and setting them aside. Once you’ve been through your entire home and set aside items you’ve set aside, you can then decide at that moment whether you wish to throw them away or donate them to a local charity or thrift store.

Move the Furniture

When cleaning your home, it’s important to ensure that the entirety of your home is clean. It’s very common to clean the spots in your home that you can see, but it’s even more important to clean under the furniture. Lots of dust and clutter gather in the spots we can’t see, so do yourself a favor and move the furniture to see what’s underneath! You may even find items you’ve lost over the years. Moving your furniture also provides you with the unique experience of rearranging how your home looks, which would give your apartment a new feel.

Organization System

Once you’ve decluttered and cleaned under the furniture, you’ll have a cleaner home than you started out with. Maintaining a clean home is a difficult task, which is why we suggest finding an organization system that you can rely on. Whether it's washing your dishes right away, or investing in boxes where you can store loose items.
