Conquer Your Clutter

Asses the situation. Are there piles of things that need to be recycled, or just drawers that need to be sorted? Do you have clothes that need to be donated in the closets? Begin with a game plan. You don’t have to do everything in one day- set goals to accomplish rooms by days. Start with the largest, or most used room in your home.

Cleaning Essentials

Have a cleaning checklist for each room in the house. The checklist will probably vary room to room, such as, don’t forget to flip and air mattresses in bedrooms, versus the kitchen check list which would include cleaning the refrigerator. Your basic room checklist could look something like this:

Vacuum floor

Dust Furniture

Dust Baseboards

Clean Windows, inside and out

Dry Clean Curtains or Vacuum

Stain Treat Carpet and Upholstery

Clean Light Fixture
