How to Clean a Basement Easily?
f you are like most people out there, you hoard junk in your basement. Basements in most homes seem to get abused by the things that we don’t want, yet don’t want to throw out. The basement of your house, whether it’s finished or not, shouldn’t be a glorified landfill. It should be a place where you and your family can hang out. It can even be a great place for your kids to set up shop with their toys, and video games, so they can have their time away from you just like you need your time away from them. It’s time to get your space back, and free your mind and your basement of all that unnecessary junk, and all that clutter. Ready for that long-awaited basement cleanout? Here are some tips to get started and take over your space.
What is your goal with this basement cleaning? Do you want to turn it into a playroom for the kids? Want to empty basement to make more room? Simply need to clean the dirt and dust, get rid of mold? Whatever it is, defining your goal(s) will help you to decide where to start and what to do next.
Asses the Clutter and Categorize
Don’t just start randomly digging into your basement. First, assess the clutter and see what type of items you have. Depending on what your goal is and the amount of junk to be removed, start categorizing the items. For example, things to donate, recycle, sell, keep, and trash. You can make an extra category for the items you’re not sure about yet.
Gather the Tools You Will Need
You will need some tools and products to clean the basement. This will depend on what needs to be done but just grab anything you will use so that they’re ready and within your reach. Also, make sure you are dressed properly to protect yourself such as using gloves and a face mask where needed. We’d recommend using eco-friendly cleaning products if possible.
Make a Checklist and Schedule
If your basement is too big and highly cluttered, create a checklist for each task or things you need to do and schedule them realistically. Accept the fact that years of junk won’t be gone in a day and overwhelming yourself will lead to frustration and you will likely quit. For example, if you have large, bulky items such as old furniture or sports equipment taking up much of the space, consider starting with those. You will feel accomplished and liberated once those items are removed and when you realize how much more space you have. This will help you keep going and motivate you.
Organize the Items You Want to Keep
Once you categorized everything and remove all but the ones you decided to keep, now it is time to start organizing them. Shelving can help both saving space and properly organizing your belongings. You can label your stuff and shelves so that you will know where it is next time when you’re looking for a certain thing. Similarly, you can use containers or storage boxes and then place them on the shelves. This way you can protect them from moisture, dust, and potential flooding.
Hire a Junk Removal Company
If you have too many things to be hauled, not sure how to recycle or where to donate, consider hiring a professional junk removal company and have them do the basement cleanout and all heavy lifting for you.
