When Spring Cleaning comes around each year, most people put it off as long as they can, but here are 3 tips for your spring cleaning overhaul. It’s no surprise that people put it off with how nasty and long spring cleaning takes to complete.
However, it doesn’t have to be a challenging task so let’s get started. Grab your friends, a pitcher of lemonade, or another drink, and start your spring cleaning!
Tip #1: Renting A Dumpster
With spring cleaning tends to come a large amount of trash that you need to remove from your home. Your regular dumpster is probably not large enough for all the garbage, so you have a few options. You can let the trash pile up outside, not do your spring cleaning at all or rent a dumpster.
Renting a dumpster is the clear choice, and luckily for you, it is an easy task. Many cleaning services offer you the ability to rent a large dumpster from them for a day to sometimes even up to a month if you need it.
If you are deep cleaning your entire house, then renting a dumpster for a week will probably be your best option. This way, you will be sure to have the dumpster around long enough to deal with all of your possible trash.

Tip #2: Removing Your Junk
Besides removing your trash, there are probably many items that you can’t just throw away, but you don’t need anymore either. Spring cleaning doesn’t just mean cleaning and getting rid of the trash; it means decluttering your home as well.
Ideas For Removing Junk:
- ● You can throw a rummage sale to make money off of your old junk.
- ● You can donate your items to a charity or a thrift store.
- ● You can give your junk away to friends or family.
Tip #3: Complete The Labor Intensive Tasks FirstAfter you make a list of all the tasks that you have to complete for your spring cleaning, read through to find the most labor-intensive tasks on the list. Once you have located those objects, create a second list comprised of just those items.
Labor-intensive tasks, such as furniture and appliance removal, are typically the ones that people procrastinate on, so by identifying them early on in your spring cleaning, you set yourself up for success. Work on the labor-intensive tasks first so that you aren’t sitting on them until the very end of your spring cleaning.
