It’s a new year. It’s time to take inventory on everything that has accumulated in your home over the past twelve months. Things can start piling up quickly, so the start of the year is a good time to think about rubbish removal in Trenton, ON.
As you begin this process, think about the various areas of your home that should be purged. Go ahead and dig deep. Don’t let this be a single trip to the curb with your two trash cans. Give yourself a fresh start to the year with a complete overhaul of your living space. Get rid of anything you haven’t used in the past year—this should be a massive home cleanout. To make it simpler and more efficient, rent a large dumpster or bin where you can easily toss everything. It will also free you from the burden of disposal.
Start at the top, and work your way down.
Attic: This space may be a scary adventure for some to explore. Many of us never even venture into our attic. What lurks there? Are there boxes or other materials sitting there, inviting pests to make nests? Will you ever actually need any of it? If you’re honest, probably not. Throw it out!
Closets: Hopefully, you aren’t to the point of slamming the closet door quickly so nothing falls out. Even so, these small spaces can cram quickly. What’s hiding on those high shelves that you should get rid of? You’d be surprised how much more organized your closet can be if you simply throw away the stuff you don’t use.
Kitchen cabinets: Are you hanging on to cracked, chipped, or discolored dishes simply because they match a set? Are they actually usable? Perhaps it’s time to thin out your dishes and save only the ones you aren’t embarrassed to use when company arrives.
Garage: Imagine being able to park the car in there! If you are shuffling around boxes that you haven’t opened in at least a year, it’s probably time to shuffle them out the door. This is also the place where unused toys often go to gather dust. Soccer balls, hockey sticks, old baseball gloves—the sports that have been abandoned or outgrown—sit and wait for someone to pick them up and play. If you know no one ever will, get rid of them.
Basement: This space will probably be the hardest to tackle. Often, our basements become storage facilities where possessions go to become antiques. The project may seem overwhelming at the start, but the reward will be worth it. Clearing out everything you no longer need will increase your storage space for the items you keep, help you stay more organized, and possibly help prevent pest invasion. If your underground quarters are like many basements, they may have seen water seepage during the past 12 months. A thorough purging will help reveal any leaks, rid you of damaged items ruined by water, and stop the growth of mold.
Once you complete this purging, your home may feel like new. You will have room for all the gifts you got for Christmas. You can pull the car in from the snow. You’ll feel the weight of all the accumulated stuff lifted, allowing you to head into 2016 with a clean slate.
