We are sharing 4 hoarding cleanup tips for your house this holiday season. Keeping a house together is not a job for one person only. Everyone in the family can participate and adopt new habits to live a healthier and happier lifestyle. At the end of the day, cluttered, filthy properties pose multiple health and safety risks. Our specialists are always ready to remediate houses from clutter and other waste.
We all make resolutions for the new year: lose weight, start working out, spend less money online shopping, clean up the attic and garage… some of these promises are easier than done, but it’s all about finding the determination actually to start them.
For many people, the new year presents itself as a canvas for new opportunities. If you decide to move forward with cleaning and decluttering your home, Bio-One of Oceanside's hoarding cleanup tips can help you make this resolution a reality. Our technicians are caring and compassionate in cleaning while keeping in mind collectibles and things you might find valuable.
Declutter the areas with the most traffic in your house
Believe it or not, the most common-used areas in the house are typically the most affected by clutter and waste. The kitchen, for example, is a perfect area to tackle when decluttering your house. Kick off the resolution by clearing out the kitchen cabinets and storage areas. If you come across things that may be useful but you don’t need them, consider donating them.
In the bedroom -another high-traffic area- take care of the pile of clothing on the chair, empty your closet and organize your garments with an open mind. Have a donation box and a trash bin near you to quickly sort out what’s staying and what’s being tossed out.
Avoid saving unnecessary things in the garage, storage room, and attic
If we were to keep every single shopping bag and box for the purchases throughout our lives, no house would be big enough to store all the clutter. Decluttering your garage and attic room may be overwhelming, especially because one doesn’t usually clean these areas thoroughly. If you feel prepared to tackle these rooms, have a recycle bin, a trash bin, and a donation box near you.
Recycle old boxes (like the box where your old headphone set came in… it won’t add value, trust us), throw away the things you no longer need and things that are broken (ask yourself: do I really need this? Am I really going to fix this? Especially if you found a replacement for such things) and again, donate the things that may be in good condition, but you no longer need.
If decluttering your garage becomes too stressful or overwhelming, follow these hoarding cleanup tips to help you. During wintertime, rodents and other household pests can make their way into our houses, and they can quickly become a serious problem because of their urine and droppings.
Don’t buy new items until you’re done cleaning and decluttering your house
You have enough as it is, simple.
If you bring new things into cluttered areas, you will have a harder time cleaning them, and chances are you’ll just quit. Once you start to clean and declutter your house from all the unnecessary items, you’ll have a fresh perspective, and then you’ll make better decisions about what you need, what you think you need, and what you definitely don’t need.
Adopt new habits, and don’t be afraid to get everyone in the family involved
Kicking off a resolution like keeping your house clean may not be the easiest thing to do, but it’s certainly not impossible. Make small changes to your routine:
- Spend five minutes organizing your bedroom before going to bed.
- Every night, or after meals, take the habit of putting the dishes in the dishwasher.
- Dirty laundry goes in the laundry basket every night. No excuses.
- Umbrellas, coats, and jackets go to the coat rack every night or after everyone is home. No excuses.
Anyone in the family can do these and other examples of daily habits. Don’t be afraid to ask kids to help and use these hoarding cleanup tips for these things. It will give them a sense of responsibility, and though it might be a small task, it will lift some weight off your shoulders.
