Of course we all take pride in our homes, we are all more than happy to have people over and to shoe them just how wonderful our house is. The thing is that this feeling we have that our house is great and that it looks amazing, that feeling is just in our heads! We like the place because we got used to it and to be honest, your friends keep coming over because they kind of got used to you. They would never have the heart to tell you that your house is not an MTV worthy crib.
Well, we don’t know you so well, so we are going to tell you. It may be time to make some changes around the house. We know you think that your home is spotless and that there’s nothing anyone could ever complain about. We are sorry to break it to you, but you are viewing things with owner goggles.
If you have rooms in your house that you exclusively use for storage (apart from the attic or the den), if you often stumble on things you actually forgot you had and if you never ever under no circumstances are willing to throw anything away, then you surely have a problem, and your house definitely needs a makeover.
If any of the things we said before are true, then you should definitely start some spring cleaning (even if it’s in the middle of the summer). These techniques learned below are shared from Nettoyage De Tapis SOS.
First thing you need to do is to throw things away. In order to do this, you only need to ask yourself one simple question. One question and all the junk will go flying out. The question is: “Have I used this in the past year?” If the answer is “No, no I haven’t used it!”, you throw it away. No matter if it’s clothes, action figures, notebooks or old ironing boards, you throw those things away.
If you had needed all of those things, you would have definitely used them at least one in the last year. And now that your house is a bit less crowded, you can even repurpose some rooms. Vacuum, dust off the furniture, bring in a pool table and now you become the cool friend, not the creepy hoarder.
It is highly important to have a aired out, not cluttered house, because it means that you are a very neat and clean person. Piles and piles of useless junk would have never described you as a neat person. Now you house is cleaner, better lit and, probably the most important thing is that your house is now a lot healthier. Just when you think of all that dust that you were breathing in, it makes you want to have taken this decision sooner. Well, better late than never!
