Most people tend to accumulate large quantities of junk and unnecessary items over the years, which can eventually begin to clutter the house. At Onestop Disposal, we know that the best way to keep a house clean is to tackle smaller cleaning projects at a time, rather than trying to declutter the entire house in one go. If you are thinking about removing some of the clutter from your home, here are some tips on keeping your house clean.
1. Set Goals and Guidelines
While some people think that cleaning and removing junk from the house in one go is more efficient, one of the best ways to maintain a clean house is to clean and declutter small amounts throughout the entire year. When starting the process of decluttering your home, it is important to set goals and guidelines. Setting goals can be a great way to determine which spaces need to be tackled at a specific time, while setting guidelines about what items have to be disposed of (e.g. all old magazines) can help speed up the decluttering process.
2. Set a Timer
Decluttering your home does not have to be an all-day chore. If you are only wanting to work in small doses over a period of time, set a timer or plan on only filling up a certain number of boxes. Doing so can help increase productivity levels, as it will force you to focus on the specific junk removal task for a certain amount of time.
3. Only Make “Yes” or “No” Decisions
One of the best tips for helping declutter your home is to avoid creating a “maybe” pile, and instead only making “yes” or “no” decisions. Getting rid of the “maybe” pile will force you to make harder decisions about what items to keep and what items to get rid of. Tempting as it may be to set aside tough decisions for later, setting aside items can make it more difficult to get rid of those items in the long run.
4. Rent a Dumpster Bin
If you have decided to tackle a larger cleaning project, such as cleaning out the garage, it might be a good idea to consider renting a dumpster bin or hiring a junk removal company to help get rid of bigger unwanted items. Dumpster bins can be rented in a wide variety of sizes and can be used for all types of projects, making them the perfect option for getting rid of old junk that cannot be recycled or donated. If you only have one large item to get rid of, hiring a junk removal company to take the large item might be the easiest solution.
