In an effort to strengthen their campaign for creating happier, healthier homes across America, Address Our Mess has released a helpful tool on their official website entitled 3 Decluttering Tips.
With the meteoric rise of hoarding cases across the nation, Address Our Mess is created a clutter cleaning campaign; calling all property owners with clutter issues to action. People struggling with clutter can stop hoarding tendencies in their tracks by taking the time to learn three important tips.
First, dedicating fifteen minutes every day to decluttering is the key to success. Those with large amounts of clutter in their home or business may fear spending too much valuable time on cleaning their clutter, therefore postponing the project indefinitely. By committing just 15 minutes per day on one space, the mess will disappear in no time.
An important factor to remember during these crucial 15 minutes is to stay focused on one area at a time. Keep it fun by cleaning with a partner or listening to music while working. Don’t overdo it. Once the 15 minutes are up, simply return to the project tomorrow ready to tackle the next 15 minutes. By setting reasonable goals, the clutter will be cleaned in a reasonable amount of time.
The next step in the Decluttering Process is to stop taking new items into the home or office. It is important for those suffering with extreme amounts of clutter to learn to value the items they already have as opposed to accumulating more. It is about quality, not quantity. Possessions will deteriorate in value the deeper buried and piled beneath other items they become, resulting in the eventual need of a professional clutter cleaning service to help out.
Treating new items like rewards is also a helpful tool. Instead of regularly acquiring new things for no particular reason, rewarding oneself for hard work and determination is a fun and efficient way to limit intake.
The final step of Address Our Mess’ Decluttering Tips is adopting the act of charitable donation. Hardworking volunteers are in constant need of providing those less fortunate with usable items. In many cases, items causing clutter in people’s homes are in great condition. They just don’t get used often enough to be worth keeping around. By donating these items to reputable charities, people looking to declutter their home can find peace of mind in knowing their old possessions are helping others in desperate need.
With over twenty years of experience serving their community, Address Our Mess’ technicians and project managers regularly publish valuable clutter cleaning tips and advice.
