Spring Cleaning Checklist: Room by Room Tips for a Cleaner Home


 

Spring Cleaning Checklist

Spring cleaning has been going on for centuries. On the first warm day of the year, people would open their windows and doors, let fresh air in, and clean out the old ash and dirt from a home. Technology and spring cleaning techniques have certainly evolved, but it is still just as important to thoroughly clean your home from top to bottom at least once a year. Back in January we resolved ourselves to get more organized and keep our homes clean for the New Year. Now, spring is around the corner and some of the projects we wanted to do have fallen by the wayside. March is a great month to start working on the spring cleaning projects and our spring cleaning tips below can help.

Spring Cleaning Tips Room By Room

There are certain cleaning tasks that are universal throughout the house. These tasks include washing down walls and ceilings, cleaning windows and screens, shampooing and vacuuming rugs, along with replacing smoke alarm batteries. But each room in a spring cleaning project will also bring its own challenges and rewards. By creating a spring cleaning checklist with clear goals and strategies for the different areas of your home, you will complete your project quicker and more effectively.

Spring Cleaning Checklist

Below are some spring cleaning tips from the largest parts of your home to the smallest.

Tips for Cleaning Your Attic

Attics become a “store-all” for everything from toy collections to holiday decorations. Spring cleaning is the best time to declutter and reorganize the attic before it gets too hot and humid.

  • Sort through items in the attic and donate, sell or store the items you no longer need.
  • Sweep the floors and wipe down the corners and windows.
  • Organize the remaining items into categories, such as holiday or children’s toys.

How to Clean the Bedrooms

We spend most of our time in our home sleeping in the bedroom. Therefore, they are the most important rooms in the house to properly clean.

  • Turn over the mattresses and vacuum.
  • Clean the linens including mattress pads, blankets, sheets, comforters and pillows.
  • Replace winter blankets with summer blankets.
  • If you store items under the bed, make sure that you sort through these items before returning them back to their storage spot.
  • Dust the dressers, chests and night stands and vacuum the carpet.

Bathroom Cleaning and Organizing Tips

The bathroom might be the smallest room in the house, but it is the one that most people dread to clean! It is very important to clean the bathroom from top to bottom while cleaning and wiping down the medicine cabinet.

  • Throw away any expired cosmetics, beauty products, lotions and medicine.
  • Restock the first aid kit.
  • Scrub the shower, tub, sinks and toilet. Clean the grout in tiles if that is needed. Replace the shower curtain and liner.
  • Wash down the windows and window treatments.
  • Clean and reorganize linen closets.

Living Room Cleaning and Organization Tips

Other than the bedroom, the living room is the most “lived in” room. It is very important to give the room a good cleaning from top to bottom.

  • Dust the ceiling and all wall corners. Use vacuum attachments to get to the corners in the wall and along the baseboards.
  • Vacuum the dust and clean inside upholstered chairs and couches.
  • Clean underneath and behind couches and chairs.
  • Dust the ceiling fan.
  • Remove books and knickknacks from shelves, display cases or tables and individually clean them. Then, dust the bookshelves, accent tables and the entertainment center.

Spring Cleaning Tips for the Kitchen

The kitchen is the heart of the home. Kitchen cleaning and organization is key to keeping the home running smoothly. However there are certain tasks that should be done at least once a year during a spring cleaning project.

  • Unplug the refrigerator and dust and vacuum the refrigerator coils in the back.
  • While the refrigerator is unplugged, defrost the freezer and then wipe down the exterior and interior of the appliance.
  • Clean and organize kitchen cabinets and the pantry.
  • Throw out mismatched storage items and expired food.
  • Wipe down and clean the kitchen counters and appliances, including the microwave.

 Spring Clean Your Closets

Spring cleaning is the time to switch out winter clothes and coats for spring and summer outfits and jackets.

  • Remove all of the items from the closet.
  • Sort through the items and decide what you need to keep and what can be donated, sold or put in storage.
  • Use storage bins for items you need to access more frequently.
  • Utilize DIY storage solutions for ties, scarves, purses and shoes. These can be hung on a closet door or used to create shelving inside the closet.

If you follow your spring cleaning checklist you can go room by room and get it all done in no time. Renting a self-storage unit is a great residential storage option to store excess items after a spring cleaning or organization project. Storage World has a variety of storage unit sizes from 5×5 to 10×30 for household storage. We also sell moving and packing supplies to pack and store your items!


10 Easy Kitchen Organization Tips


How to Organize a Kitchen

 

 

 

The kitchen is the heart of the home. It is a place where everyone gathers for conversations, meals, homework and get-togethers. This is also a room that gathers clutter and can easily get “out of control” as family members deposit backpacks, purses, keys, briefcases or wallets.  All of these daily items add to what can already be a cluttered room. There are many kitchen organization ideas that can help, though, from DIY storage ideas to cleaning tips. It is important to find the right solution for your needs. Kitchen organization is a good way to kick off your spring cleaning projects and get organized for 2016.

Attack of the Kitchen Clutter

The kitchen counters and cabinets become a place where unused appliances and kitchen accessories sit and gather dust. Family members pass down pots, pans, jello molds, cake pans, storage containers and utensils which end up being placed in the back of cabinets or drawers never to be used again. Everyone has a collection of storage containers without matching lids, and utensils that are used once but never again. There are quite a lot of “amateur chefs” that require every kitchen gadget, but don’t end up using half of them. All of these items end up cluttering counters and occupying space in kitchen cabinets and pantries. Learning how to organize your kitchen is easy to do by just following the few tips listed below.

How to Organize a Kitchen

Having an organized kitchen will allow you to find the kitchen accessories or cooking utensils that you need while keeping a clean kitchen. As with any reorganization project, it is important to start with a plan. Separate your kitchen into areas, or projects, such as, the pantry, cabinets, countertops and drawers. Work on reorganizing one area at a time. Once one project is completed, move on to the next area in the room. Before starting the project, gather the cleaning and moving and packing supplies you will need to pack up these excess kitchen accessories. Below are kitchen organization tips and suggestions to keep the room clutter-free:

  1. Sort through the excess items in each area in the kitchen. Throw away expired food, broken plates, glasses, and mismatched storage containers. Examine your kitchen accessories and supplies and decide if you will use it again in the future. If the answer is no, then it is time to donate or sell the item.
  2. Keep the most essential items in the kitchen on your counters and within easy reach of your main workspace.
  3. Clean the empty cabinets and drawers and change the shelving paper before putting items back inside. Also, wash the items before putting them back in the cabinets.
  4. Categorize your kitchen cabinets and drawers into smaller groups such as baking items, special occasion dishes or everyday items. Put special occasion dishes and serving items higher up in the cabinet, since they are only used a few times a year.
  5. Utilize all of the vertical space in the kitchen and cabinets. Have a step-stool handy to reach the items that are on the higher shelves.
  6. Use kitchen drawer organizers for your cutlery and utensils.
  7. For decorative yet functional storage ideas, put spatulas and large spoons in a vase or use decorative storage containers, such as mason jars, to store dry ingredients on the countertop.
  8. When organizing a food pantry, remove all of the items in the pantry first, clean each of the shelves and the floors. Remove any item that should not be stored in the kitchen. Next, categorize the food items before you put them back on the shelves. Put the items that you will use the most on accessible shelves. Purchase organization baskets and bins to store dry goods, cereals and children’s snacks. A great tip to help prevent overbuying of food and other perishable goods is to keep a running inventory your food pantry items.
  9. Make it a daily habit to clean off the counter where bags, keys, and purses get thrown every day. Place a decorative bowl on the counter to put keys and other small objects, so you know where they are. After a week, clean through the bowl or put the items in their proper homes. Create a space in a mudroom or entryway to hang backpacks and briefcases.
  10. To keep your kitchen organized, clean up the dishes after every meal. Put them away in their proper cabinets. Do not let mail pile up on the counter. Sort through mail every day and put catalogs and magazines in the recycle bin right away if you do not plan on reading them.

Store Excess Kitchen Items in Self-Storage

After the organization project, you will have items that you no longer have room for in the space. Self-storage is a great solution for storing the items that you cannot part with and might have a need for in the future. Storage World offers a variety of storage unit sizes, in climate and non-climate controlled, that are perfect for any residential storage need. Ask our storage professionals what size storage unit would be the best for your storage needs.

All types of businesses, contractors or even large corporations are great matches for business storage solutions. Another type of business that can easily store items in a self-storage unit are restaurants or caterers.

Most restaurants and catering businesses run out of storage room very quickly. They need to have a place to store their extra furniture, supplies, dishes, glassware and holiday displays. A self-storage unit is the easiest and most convenient solution for restaurant owners and catering businesses to store the items that they don’t have room for at their business location. Below is a collection of simple tips for how to do this effectively.

Restaurant Equipment Self-Storage Tips

Restaurants can use a self-storage unit to store excess equipment, chairs, tables or supplies including dishes, flatware and cutlery. Restaurants can also store excess pots, pans, dishes and other restaurant equipment and appliances. A simple storage tip is to make sure that the dishes and glassware are wrapped and packed properly to prevent breakage during transit. A self-storage unit is also ideal to store a restaurant’s outdoor patio furniture during the colder months. When storing patio furniture, stack the chairs in order to utilize all the vertical room in the storage unit.

For any business, but more so for those who need restaurant equipment and catering storage, it is important to keep a running inventory list in the storage unit as well as at your business of the items that you have in storage.

Catering Supplies Self-Storage Tips

Self-storage is great storage solution for catering businesses, especially those that work out of their home. Caterers can use a number of different self-storage unit sizes to store excess equipment and supplies they do not have the room for.

During the “off-season”, caterers and party planners need a place to store their furniture, chairs, tables, decorations, dishes, glassware, silverware, serving utensils, pots, pans, and linens. It is more convenient to store these items together in a secured self-storage unit than inside the catering truck. Caterers can rent a storage unit that is central to their business and events to make it easier to pick up their catering supplies when they are needed.

Appliance Moving and Storage Tips


 

How to Prepare and Move Kitchen Appliances.

The hardest items to prepare for storage or moving in the home are appliances such as refrigerators, stoves, microwaves and dishwashers. If you are moving appliances to a new home or to a storage unit, it is very important to properly prepare the appliances, so they can be easily set-up and used again in the future. Appliances can be either placed first or last on a moving truck depending on which items are needed to be moved set-up first into the new home.

How to Prepare and Move Kitchen Appliances

Check manufacturer’s instructions for specific storage/moving information for each appliance before you start the packing process. For any appliance, the most important thing that has to be done before moving is to do a thorough cleaning, which includes removing all food and cleaning the appliance inside and out. By following the moving appliance and storage tips below, you can easily get your new kitchen running in no time.

Preparing for Moving a Refrigerator

  • Defrost refrigerator and freezer at least 3 days before moving.
  • Drain icemakers and water supplies and allow them to thoroughly dry.
  • Thoroughly clean the inside of the refrigerator. Remove the trays and drawers from the refrigerator and clean with a mild detergent.
  • After unplugging, dust or vacuum the coils on the outside of the refrigerator.
  • Wrap the refrigerator in blankets and place upright on a moving dolly. Do not move a refrigerator on its side as it could cause damage to the refrigeration coils.
  • Tape the doors shut while in transit. When it is placed in a storage unit, remove the tape and leave the door slightly ajar to prevent moisture build-up.

Tips for Moving a Gas or Electric Stove

  • Before cleaning, remove any pans (broiler pans) from the inside of the stove. Then, clean the stove inside and out.
  • If you are moving a gas stove, have a professional turn off the gas and disengage the piping. Then, have the professional set up the stove in your new home.
  • Electric stoves can just be unplugged when they are ready to be moved.
  • Tape down the knobs and the plug on the stove to prevent them from becoming loose in transit.
  • Wrap the stove in a moving blanket for extra protection from dents and scratches.

Moving a Dishwasher

  • Run an empty dishwasher one last time before preparing to move.
  • Unplug and thoroughly clean the dishwasher. Let the dishwasher air dry for at least 24 hours before moving.
  • Disconnect and clean the dishwasher hoses. Once these are dry, wrap them in towels or newsprint and place inside the dishwasher for future access.
  • Tape the cord onto the side of the dishwasher and wrap in blankets for transport.

How to Move a Microwave

  • Remove and clean the glass turntable from the microwave and then clean the microwave inside and out. A tip for hard to remove stains is to place a damp sponge with vinegar in the microwave oven and run for a minute. This will help loosen the food particles inside the microwave allowing for easier cleaning.
  • Place the microwave in its original packaging whenever possible. If the original packaging is not available, the microwave can be moved and stored in a very sturdy cardboard box. Make sure to add lots of filler material (newsprint, bubble wrap, or linens) for extra protection.
  • Tape the glass door shut during transport with the cords taped on the side of the appliance.

Self storage is a great solution for short-term and long-term appliance storage. By properly preparing them for moving or storage, you will be able to keep the items in good working order when you need them. Storage World has a variety of storage unit sizes to fit every household storage need. Stop by our three Atlanta self storage locations to find out more information about our climate controlled storage units, state-of-the-art secure storage systems and our easily accessible storage units.

 


Getting Organized in the New Year


Home Organization Ideas

 

Every year, people make resolutions to get healthy, lose weight, get more organized and save money. According to a recent survey by Statistic Brain, the second most popular New Year’s resolution for 2015 was to get organized! January is a good time to begin creating goals to get your home organized for the New Year. After the chaos of the holiday season, putting away holiday decorations is a great start to getting the house back in order.

Initiate Home Organization Ideas

One of the challenges of starting an organization project is finding motivation. To kick off your home organization and stay on track for 2016, follow these three simple steps listed below.

  1. Start with a goal in mind for your organizing and decluttering project. Use photos of organized rooms for inspiration.
  2. After you decide on your goal, create a list of what you need to do, what moving or packing supplies and what storage solutions, such as shelving, bins or baskets, you will need for your project.
  3. Split up the decluttering projects into smaller tasks, which will be then be easier to accomplish. Consider breaking down your decluttering project into rooms, it can help make the task less daunting.

Tips for How to DeClutter and Organize Your Home<

After preparing for the home organization project, the next step is to jump right into work. Each room that you work on will have different organization requirements. The goal is to take your time, remove what you will no longer use and stick to your task! Below are six tips for how to declutter and organize your home and tips for keeping it organized going forward:

  1. The first step of any reorganization project is to remove all items from the room (or area) that you want to reorganize.
  2. Once you have removed the items and cleared out the room, then it is time to sort the items into the following piles (or boxes): keep in the room, store, donate, sell or throw away. This is the hardest step to any home organization project as we can be very emotionally attached to our things; which in turn causes more clutter to gather in our homes.
  3. Rent a storage unit for items that you can’t part with, but no longer have a place for in the newly organized room.
  4. Donate the items that you don’t need any more to organizations that could use them. Donate books to a library or school. Donate clothing to local shelters and donations centers, such as the Salvation Army or Goodwill.
  5. Once, you have created a clutter free environment, it is important to keep it organized going forward by doing daily cleaning, such as cleaning the kitchen or putting away toys in their proper location. If your home becomes cluttered again, start the project all over.
  6. Sort your mail right away. Place magazines and catalogs that you won’t read directly into the recycle bin and place bills and other mail that have to be answered in a specially designated spot.

With proper planning and a goal in mind, you can declutter and reorganize your home and keep it organized going into the New Year. Storage World has a variety of storage options, including climate and non-climate controlled, available for every storage need from storing holiday decorations, unused exercise equipment, family heirlooms or toy collections.


Holiday Self Storage Solutions


 

Holiday Storage IdeasThanksgiving weekend started the official start to the holiday season.  We have been inundated with commercials and news stories for big deals on electronics, computers and Christmas gift ideas for the family and friends since the beginning of November.  We have survived “Black Friday” and bought gifts online during “Cyber Monday“.  Now we need a place to store everything that we bought until it is ready to be wrapped and placed under the Christmas tree.
