We’re off to an interesting start this season.
With the impending news about Coronavirus combined with the start of spring allergies, it can be assumed that now is the time to take your health more seriously.
While we should always be washing our hands, covering our coughs, and being aware of our overall personal hygiene, staying healthy starts at home. It’s important to take a look at your current living situation and make strides to stay healthy within your own personal space.
We spend a majority of our time at home, so it is crucial to make sure your home is a clean, healthy place to be. As a professional organizing company, we have found that cluttered homes are typically dirty, which may as a result lead to illness.
Think about it; if there are newspapers piled on countertops, do you think those countertops have been cleaned lately? If there are dusty cardboard boxes strewn across your living room, do you think that floor has been swept in the past few weeks? The more we accumulate clutter, the more we collect unsanitary living spaces, and the more we increase our chances of getting sick.
Take the first stride today and avoid getting sick this spring by organizing your home today. Here are some tips on how you can avoid getting sick this spring:
1. Sanitize Your Most-Used Surfaces
Wipe down door knobs, light switches, kitchen appliance doors, and any space you can see that is constantly being touched. By cleaning these surfaces daily, you will limit the amount of germs that are starting to spread in your home.
2. Wipe Down Countertops
Take the time to go through those old papers, Tupperware, and books that have accumulated on your countertops. The dust is most likely adding to your allergies, and it will be best to toss out anything you no longer need in this space so 1) you can actually use your countertops and 2) they can be clean when you do so.
3. Take The Time To Organize Your Home
Organizing and cleaning are two different animals, however, they go hand-in-hand. In order to clean a space, you have to be able to see your space in order to do so. For example, you can’t clean that bookshelf in your office if there are knick-knacks, piles of books, articles, and picture frames covering every shelf.
By removing your item, evaluating what you want to keep and what you want to toss, and then cleaning the space before you restructure, you can incorporate both organizing and cleaning together. Instead of haphazardly wiping down the space AROUND your clutter, focus on dismantling the clutter, and then sanitizing the space.
