Simple Home Clean-Up Projects for the Summer
Summer has arrived. This is the season we’ve been looking forward to for the past year. While we hope you’re taking advantage of the great outdoors with your loved ones, now is also the time to get some work done.
Roll up your sleeves and take advantage of the nice weather to take care of the little things around your house. Now that the cold weather has passed, here are some projects you could do around the house.
1. Remove Your Garbage From the Garage
Another year has come and gone. Is your garage still in a state of disarray? This is your chance to clear out the clutter. Make a list of what you want to keep and what you can donate or sell.
Put whatever is left in a dumpster rental
and you’ll be done with it in no time.
2. Get Rid of Your Log Pile
Many people have a pile of logs and brush somewhere in their backyard. However, if your pile continues to grow year after year, it’s time to get rid of it. It’s vital to get rid of this because your woodpile could attract wasps, rodents, or termites.
3. Organize Your Closet
Whether it’s your bedroom closet, linen closet, or hall closet, it’s likely in desperate need of some TLC. Examine your belongings to see if there is anything you don’t use.
However, just because you don’t use something any longer doesn’t mean it’s useless. Check different marketplaces to see if you can sell your old vacuum or hold a garage sale to get rid of old clothes, books, or mismatched dishes. One person’s garbage is another person’s gold.
Cleaning up your outdoor space during the summer
Your outdoor space is an important area to consider. Cleaning, organizing, and modernizing your outdoor space will encourage you to spend more time there.
Here’s a checklist for cleaning your outdoor space:
- Deck cleaning and treatment
- Remove debris from the deck, walls, and windows.
- Replace the cushions on your furniture (bright colors are always a good choice here)
- Fill containers with flowers and plants to brighten up your deck.
- Add an umbrella to the mix.
- Place a weatherproof rug on the floor
Final thoughts: Cleaning your house during the summer
Most importantly, this summer, cross those dreaded chores off your to-do list. It’s okay if you didn’t get around to spring cleaning. Light fixtures, baseboards, and under appliances aren’t cleaned as often as they should be.
Summer is the ideal time to roll up your sleeves and clean those areas that have been neglected. The issue may be that you don’t know where to begin or what to clean.
Cleaning out the dryer and placing your oven to self-clean are just a few things to focus on this summer. With this, your home should be ready for all of the summer parties you may be planning. Above all, your home will be summer-ready once you have a plan in place and some time to put it into action.
We hope that completing these projects makes you feel lighter as autumn approaches. Renting a dumpster from us can make things a lot easier. We typically recommend 20-yard dumpsters
for home cleanout projects.
