Are you ready to reclaim valuable square footage in your home? Whether you’re in need of a more organized storage area or you have dreams of a new living space, your basement is full of potential. If it’s also full of unused items and clutter, however, your first order of business is sorting and clearing to make space for executing your plans.
Getting Your Cleaning Project Started
The longest journeys begin with a single step, and your basement project is no exception.
Start in one area, and don’t move on to another until everything is separated into three categories: things you want to keep, things fit for donation, and items to be discarded. For each item you plan to keep, make a mental note about where it will belong in your home. If you don’t have an immediate use for something, or at least an idea of where it can be placed to avoid adding to clutter in the main areas of your home, consider donating or discarding.
If you’re like most people, a substantial percentage of the things in your basement are damaged or not operating properly. You’ve stored them in the basement with plans of restoring them to their former glory, but never got around to doing the work.
Commit to repairing these items and get them out of your basement. The longer they gather dust, the less likely you are to give them the attention they need. Items with sentimental value may be worth saving, but there’s no shame in discarding a broken, unusable item to which you’re not even emotionally attached.
Much of your basement clutter is also likely to be in good, serviceable condition. Clothing your family has outgrown or that’s no longer in style, old household items you’ve upgraded and not discarded, and other serviceable items should be donated, if possible. Give those items a new chance at life while helping someone less fortunate and reclaim your space. Everyone wins!
Streamlining the Process with Basement Cleaning Services
Separating all the items in your basement into three piles is only part of the job. Once you’ve separated the things you’d like to donate from the things that should really be discarded, it’s time to track down the relevant services and drop-off centers.
Electronics require specific attention in terms of recycling and disposal due to the potential for hazardous materials. This means you’ll need to find specialized drop-off centers for your electronic waste, along with donation centers for the items with remaining useful life. This is where working with a professional service can make all the difference.
