Spring is the season of renewal, and that includes refreshing your home or business. The task of spring cleaning can often seem daunting, but with a well-thought-out plan and the right waste management support, it becomes manageable and rewarding. Royal Carting Services is here to guide you through the process of decluttering, cleaning, and renewing your living or workspace. In this instructional post, we’ll walk you through the steps to spring clean with efficiency and reduce stress while doing so.

Planning Your Spring Cleaning Project

Before you grab the mop and duster, it’s important to set the stage for your spring cleaning success with a plan. Start by breaking down your space into manageable sections, and create a checklist to keep you on track.

Importance of a Plan: A well-crafted plan will help you spend less time figuring out what to do next and allow you to concentrate on the actual cleaning and decluttering.

Categorize: When cleaning, a good rule of thumb is to categorize items into four groups – keep, donate, sell, or throw away. This strategy will keep the end goal in clear focus and streamline the process.

Cleaning Tips to Make Your Space Shine

With a plan in place, it’s time to focus on the cleaning process itself. Here are some tips to make your space sparkle:

Best Practices: Always clean from the top down, starting with ceilings, light fixtures, and high shelving, and work your way to the floors. This practice prevents residue from upper areas from falling onto clean, lower surfaces.

Hidden Spots: It’s the little, often neglected areas that can make a space look untidy. Remember to dust the tops of picture frames, clean behind appliances, and wipe down baseboards and moldings.

Organize as You Go: Use this opportunity to re-organize and make your space work more effectively for you. Implement storage solutions as you’re sorting through your items to prevent chaos down the line.

Know What You Can and Can’t Throw Out

Certain waste items don’t belong in your trash. Check out the list below for what you can’t throw out along with some alternative ways to get rid of those items:

  • Ashes
  • Electronic waste or “e-waste” (TVs, monitors, tablets, etc.)
    • Tip! You can reach out to the store where the e-waste was purchased to see if they accept discarded e-waste. If not, contact the Dutchess County Resource Recovery Agency (DCRRA) to check when they’re collecting e-waste next.
  • Construction and demolition debris
    • Did you know? You can contact Royal Carting and Welsh Sanitation to reserve a roll-off container to dispose of construction and demolition debris properly.
  • Liquids, chemicals, hazardous materials, batteries, and anything containing batteries

Tip! You can also contact DCRRA to dispose of hazardous materials.

Decluttering Large Items

For larger pieces of furniture or appliances that you’re ready to part with, the process can be a bit more complex. Here’s how to handle them with ease:

Handling Large Items: Enlist the help of friends or family to move and maneuver heavier objects. Always lift with your legs, not your back, and use moving straps or sliders to protect yourself and your floors.

The Benefits of a Roll-Off Dumpster: For significant decluttering projects, consider renting a roll-off dumpster. It’s a convenient way to dispose of large amounts of waste without multiple trips to the dump or overstuffing your regular waste bins.
