How to Declutter Your Home

The coming of May often brings about a lot of new changes, both imagined and realized. Your home is supposed to be your sanctuary, the place you go to get away from the stress and chaos. However, if your home is cluttered you’re unlikely to find solace in it. Here are some easy and effective ways to tidy your home, and keep it that way.

At EH Clean, we are able to alleviate stress by cleaning our clients' homes and making sure that they can live in an immaculate environment. Decluttering is also a big part of that and that's why we're delighted to be sharing this blog with you. 

Create Smaller Homes within Your Home

The key to tidiness is to have a home for everything. When everything has its specific place there is no excuse to throw it aside and create piles. Attach shelves to open spaces on your walls. A hook-board can do wonders to keep coats, backpacks, and purses off the floor. Find a basket for mail, or even get more organized and separate mail into several baskets of degree of importance or recipient. If you designate specific spots for the items in your home you will avoid having to clean up endless clutter.

One-A-Day Giveaway

A great way to not only declutter your home but also get rid of the items that tend to clutter it up is to give something away everyday for one year. It doesn’t matter how big or small, giving just one item away a day will free you up physically and allow you to let go of the items you’ve been holding onto for too long. This is a great way to pass along sentimental gifts to people or donate to charity. 

Have a Garage Sale

A great way to get yourself motivated for a thorough household decluttering is to hold a garage sale. Gather up all those things you’ve been meaning to use or wear but have never gotten around to and sell them! Ask your family and neighbors to contribute things they want to get rid of too and make it a neighborhood affair. This project will help clean your house out; up cycle some used goods and appliances, and put a few bucks in your own pocket. So pressure wash that driveway, clean out those closets, and get ready to set up shop!

At EH Clean, our motto is "We don't cut corners, we clean them!" By stressing a quality, tailor-made cleaning service for all of our clients who demand the best, we have been able to build a strong and thriving business. We are owner operated and during the past 20 years we have gained a vast amount of knowledge, understanding and experience within all aspects of cleaning and it shows in our work.
