Spring cleaning. It never seems to happen during spring, does it? Have no fear! We have a few tips to help refresh your living space so that you have a space that shines all summer long.

1. Collect clutter items such as old magazines, books, and children’s toys to donate.

Not only will you have more open space, but you can also donate items to your local Goodwill or other organizations that take donations. Need help dropping off your donations? Hire a Tasker to help.

2. Change out seasonal items such as shower curtains, smoke detector batteries, and light bulbs.

Consider changing light bulbs to compact fluorescent (CFL) bulbs to conserve energy. The change will make an impact on your electricity bill, as well as the environment. That’s a win-win. Get it done fast with the help of a handyman.

3. Organize seasonal items so that winter items go into storage.

By going through your clothes, you can open up closet space and sort through items you no longer want. Remember the “love it, hate it, like it” system where items you hate are put into a bag for donation, items you love are organized to go back in your closet, and items you like can be put into storage to reassess when you have more time. Not sure where to get started? An organizational Tasker can give you tips or a helping hand. 

4. Organize and label your cleaning supplies so that you have an accurate inventory of items you need around the house.

If a cleaning emergency pops up, you’d be surprised to know how many non-toxic, common household items can be used instead of harsh chemicals. Did you know that you can stop an annoying faucet leak by tying a string around the end of the faucet so that the water flows down the string rather than dripping until you can get it fixed?

5. Keep a daily routine of quick chores to keep the house tidy.

If you clean as you cook or get into a habit of recycling magazines as soon as you are done with them, you will prevent disorder around the house and the need to clean it. When you’re ready for a deep clean a Tasker can help.
