Why Summer Is the Best Time to Declutter

When spring ends in Medina, OH, the summer begins and brings plenty of sunshine and blue skies to our area. If you didn’t have the time or lacked the motivation to spring-clean in April and May, it’s time to take advantage of the longer days in summer. Storage Zone has a few reasons why summer is actually the best time for spring cleaning for those who still have chores to do.

3 Reasons to Spring Clean in the Summer

There’s more time in the day.

Summer has longer days, giving you enough time to take care of things around the house. Even if you get home at 5 p.m., you still have three or four hours of daylight left each day during the workweek. The weekends give you up to 15 hours of daylight each day, so you’ll have plenty of time and light to handle those spring cleaning chores.

The weather makes for perfect cleaning.

Blue skies and bright sunshine will lift your mood and make it easy to get motivated. Good weather is the key to cleaning the house. You can open the windows and let the breeze come in and air out your home. You also won’t have to deal with those chilly springtime winds when moving all the clutter to storage units nearby.

The kids can pitch in.

The kids don’t have school in the summertime, so you’ll have more hands to help clean the house. Give each of your children a specific chore to complete within the week. If you don’t have children, ask a friend for help. Most people have more free time in the summer, so don’t be afraid to put your friends to work when they stop by for a chat. They can also help when it’s time to move your clutter into self storage.

Self Storage for Summertime Cleaning

Though it’s called spring cleaning, you don’t have to clean your home in the springtime. In fact, you can do it in the summer and throughout the year to keep your home neat and organized. After you’ve decluttered each room, bring everything to our storage units in Medina, OH. We have extra space for keeping your belongings stored away until you’re ready to host a mid-summer yard sale or move things back to your home.
