What You Should Know Before Cleaning Out Your Home

Written by Felicia Priedel

There are many times when you may want to clean out your entire home, making it look as pretty as possible. But actually, cleaning it can be difficult as you struggle to tackle each room. Luckily, there are some things you should know about cleaning out your home that can help make it a lot easier for you.

Clean Top to Bottom

The first trick to home cleaning is to always start at the top of your home and work your way down. This is true for shelving units and other areas. Dust and dirt settle with gravity, so cleaning the bottom and then moving upward means you’ll knock the dust and dirt down to the places you already cleaned.

Declutter First

When you start cleaning your home, the first thing you should do is declutter your things. You likely have a lot of items you’re better off without, and this is the time to rid yourself of the extra baggage. Plus, getting rid of items means you don’t need to clean them or work around them as you tidy up your home.

Hazardous Material Disposal

As you declutter and throw out old things, be careful of what you’re throwing away. When cleaning a home, you should rent a dumpster so that you can dispose of things quickly, but even a dumpster can’t take all your garbage. Some trash has dangerous materials, and you need to know how to get rid of it while following your state’s regulations.

Start With the Surface, Then Work Deeper

When cleaning your home, it’s best if you go over everything again after you finish the easy things, like using a broom to sweep up the dirt, then mop to clean up anything remaining. This will save you a lot of effort as you don’t need to use your strongest cleaner materials on easy-to-clean items this way.

These are some of the things that can help you clean if you know them beforehand. While cleaning can be difficult and time-consuming, it’s well worth it once you have a home that looks and feels new.
