Nothing destroys peace in your house (and your mind) more than a significant amount of clutter.
The items that accumulate over time, which you no longer find a use for, do not only create a mess but also puts a serious dent in the orderliness of your household.
Every scheduled deep-clean should also involve clearing out the clutter and putting it into its proper place, whether in a new spot within the house where they can still be useful or donate to a neighbour or community organisation that might need them.
If they are of no use to other and you’re resolved that they will have to be placed in the waste bin, there’s only one way to go. That’s to contact an experienced and efficient recycling centre with expertise in maximising the value of household clutter and lessening its impact on the environment.

How to tackle the clutter per room
Decluttering becomes easier when you do it phase by phase. Start on the worst spots that quickly make the entire room look chaotic. In the kitchen, that spot is the counter; in the bedroom, it’s the bed. Clearing out those key spots with items that are not supposed to be there and replacing them in their proper places or the trash will give your room a new refreshing appeal.
After working out the key spots, walk around the rest of the room, and with a trash bag in one hand, place the unwanted items into the bag. You can sort those items out later when you are done cleaning the rest of the house.
What are the items you must get rid of? It is those items you don’t need in your life that you have outgrown or no longer need. Decluttering means getting rid of items you told yourself you were saving for later use, but have not been used for a long time and probably never will.
For example, if you have outgrown a number of clothing items in your closet, but you keep them stored away with hopes that you will one day be able to fit back into them, you’ll find that it’s often best to clear the closet out and donate the clothes.
It’s a shame to leave them in the wardrobe collecting dusts and at the mercy of moths.
Keep the house tidy and clean
After getting rid of the clutter, it’s time to take care of the other part of cleaning the house: scrubbing, washing surfaces and removing dirt, dust, and grime build-up.
When you have already cleared out the unnecessary items, you will have a clear view of the space and storage within your home. Use the correct cleaning products (we recommend using eco friendly cleaning products), dilution and cleaning techniques to keep your home looking, feeling, and smelling fresh.
It feels great to keep the home clean and clutter-free. Cleaning is like therapy. As you take care of your trash, you also declutter your mind. That’s a great reason to do a deep-cleaning as often as possible.
