3 Areas You're Probably Forgetting to Clean
Check these nooks and schedule a general cleaning as soon as possible
Familiar with those scenes showing homeowners cleaning only the visible areas at home then sweeping dust under the carpet? Some may find it funny and amusing, but keep in mind that you shouldn't do this at home!
It's important to dedicate more time to cleaning common areas like the kitchen and bathroom but you shouldn't neglect the other space that we don't use often. See the three spaces below and make sure that you clean and organize them today:
Storage room or bodega
Most of us are guilty of dumping items that we no longer use and broken furniture inside the storage room. What if you suddenly need to get something important from the room—like your Christmas tree and holiday decorations? Are you ready to face the clutter? Avoid bigger problems by keeping the space organized at all times. This will make it easier for you to look and get whatever you need.
Keep your belongings in place by using boxes and plastic containers. You may stack these pieces against the wall or use a shelf as seen in the photo. Place the heavy items at the bottom and the lightweight pieces on the topmost tier.
The garage is more than just a space where we park and fix our cars. When maximized properly, it can also function as an extra storage nook. See if there are items that can be discarded—these may include old tools and boxes. Achieve order in the area by installing wall-mounted storage and open shelves.
Since you will be needing a lot of tools in the garage, it's also a good idea to invest in hangers, hooks, and various organizers.
Awkward nooks and crannies
Do you make it a point to clean and remove dust from awkward niches at home? If you're using these as storage spots, make sure that it's free from dirt and dust. Consider turning it into permanent storage space by installing shelves or placing baskets where you can keep reading materials and other must-haves.
