Spring into Action for a Fresh Start!

4/25/2018 (Permalink)

Spring is here...so is annual cleaning time!

Spring is here and with it the sense of a fresh start. We bought a new home in August and I’m committed to enjoying my new environment which includes keeping clutter to a minimum and cleanliness at a premium. I do believe we all need a safe haven. Some place we know is always there as a retreat, or a comfort or a place to call ours. For me, if that space feels restful and clean, I’m at peace. Being in the emergency restoration business (I work for SERVPRO of Downtown Long Beach/Signal Hill), I see a lot of unstable, unsanitary situations so having a serene spot at the end of the day to come home to is especially important to me.

So I’m on a quest – a mission to have a place for everything/everything in its place; a path to cleanliness so my home is always welcoming myself and guests, and a commitment to maintenance so I’m living in a safe and healthy space.

Where to start in my new home? I’ve gotten pretty organized and I’ve cleared out the knicks that lost their knack (Check out Donna Garlough’s book: Your Home Your Style. A teaser “Rethink declutter… Don’t feel like you have to get rid of stuff just to have less stuff; get rid of it so you have the right stuff”). So now I’m tackling some key maintenance items. I figure if I set up a schedule, once upon each Spring, I’ll be stepping in the right direction on my path.

I noticed a grimy oven when we moved in that can’t be denied. I love my refrigerator, dishwasher and washer/dryer and want them to last forever- how can I help?! We finally have an air conditioning system but I’m clueless about what to do to keep it humming along. So those, along with a couple others make my list.

In my next post I’ll include more information for cleaning or maintenance suggestions for each item. In the meantime, if we can help you with your bigger cleanup or restoration needs due to fire, water, mold or biohazard damages, please give SERVPRO Downtown Long Beach/Signal Hill a call (562-591-1788)

Happy Spring!
