The rules to follow during a Spring Clean

The rules to follow during a Spring Clean

With spring just around the corner, there is no better time to start thinking about a spring clean; time to collect all the rubbish you’ve been stashing and call in a rubbish removal company to clear it out.

However, you may be putting off your spring-cleaning duties because they feel it is simply too much of a daunting task. If that is the case, I hear you! I’m also the kind of guy who puts off cleaning until things pile up and I have to do it. For me, a spring clean is all about getting rid of unwanted rubbish and I have a few rules that help me go about rubbish removal smartly.


Continue reading as I share my rules rules. By following these handy and easy tips, you too will find that spring cleaning can be effortless if planned out properly.

1. Make a list of what you need to do

As with most other chores, I’m incredibly lazy about spring cleaning and rubbish removal. So how do I tackle this problem? The answer, of course, is by doing things smartly. Before I get started with my cleaning, I always make a list of what needs to be done. I find it much easier to break up the entire cleaning process into smaller tasks and knock them off one by one.

This may sound simple, but it is very effective. By creating a list of tasks, you will be clear on what needs to be done. This will help you get through your spring cleaning much more effectively.

2. Make appointments to tackle tasks you dread

Whenever I tackle a clean out, I find that there are always some tasks that I dread doing more than others. I’m sure this is the case with you as well. But don’t worry. There’s an easy way to tackle such tasks – by making appointments. I’ve found that making appointments and sticking to a schedule allows me to get started with the worst tasks. Remember to be serious about your appointments else you’ll just end up leaving things for later.

This might mean going through all the junk that has been collecting in your spare room or garage. There is no better time to sort through what you want to keep and remove the junk you don’t need.

3. Spread out your tasks

You should note that rubbish removal and spring cleaning have nothing to do with spring. It is always a good idea to spread out tasks over a period of time so that they can be managed better. Whenever I’m cleaning my home, I always try and group tasks together into categories. I also ensure to spread out my chores over a period of time. This way, I never have to deal with a marathon of tasks.

Don’t save your spring clean to be a once a year occurrence. At 4Waste, we offer rubbish removal services all year round to make light work of daunting tasks.

4. Take measures for controlling clutter

Spring cleaning is the best time to implement new practices, such as clutter control. When I remove rubbish from my home, I also add a little organisation. I toss out things that don’t come in use, while separating items that can be sold or donated.

As a rule of thumb, I always keep my walkways and stairs free. Stairs, landings and walkways areas receive high foot traffic, so it’s a good safety measure to keep these areas clear of clutter or rubbish. Remove bags, boxes and other items and keep them somewhere else.

Even by organising a little, things can go a long way. You won’t have to deal with clutter for months if you take measures during your spring clean and rubbish removal.

5. Don’t try to carry too much at once

I’ve probably made this mistake a lot when I was younger. But with time, I realised that carrying too much stuff can cause health and safety concerns. These days, when moving items or removing rubbish, I carry smaller loads. I also take care that I can see well over the load that I’m carrying. Also, it may sound obvious, but keep an eye on the floor so that you don’t trip and fall over.

If you’re not keen on doing the entire cleaning process yourself, don’t worry. At 4Waste, we also offer a Hands On Rubbish Removal service. This service allows you to hire rubbish removal experts to do all the lifting and removing of rubbish for you.

6. Call in the rubbish removal experts

Finally, once you’re done with your spring clean, and have compiled all the junk and rubbish from around your home, it’s time to call in the rubbish removal experts. Rubbish removal experts, such as ours at 4Waste, will take your unwanted items away from your home and dispose of them correctly so you don’t have to worry about this aspect also.

If you find spring cleaning to be a daunting and tiresome task, then you should try following some basic rules. Make a list of what needs to be done before you start and make appointments to tacked dreaded tasks. Spread out your tasks over time while taking measures to control clutter. Always keep your stairs and walkways clutter-free and carrying little amounts of junk during the cleaning process. Finally, when you’ve collected all your junk, call in the rubbish removal experts.
