Cleaning Out Our Bucks County Homes
Cleaning out our homes during the pandemic
Like many of us, you may have started out the pandemic doing nothing for weeks and feeling paralyzed while stuck at home. And then, as the days turned into weeks and the weeks into months, people began to realize that they had to do something within the confines of their home. Many sought to reorganize, declutter and create separate spaces within their house that they had not needed pre-pandemic.
Whether being at home has made you realize you have saved everything you have ever owned or you have simply outgrown your home for the needs you have now, organizing our homes has never been more important. During this time, amid stay-at-home orders and social distancing guidelines, our options for getting rid of things are limited. Yard sales are risky and some municipalities have limited bulk trash collection. Some charity donation drop-off centers are being specific about what they will take while others remain closed altogether.
Some people feel like nesting and are painting and rearranging everything. Others feel claustrophobic. Many have figured out they need more elbow room. Many people have had to create a home office out of a room they had used for storage. They didn’t want their stuff to spill out into the rest of the home or show up on their Zoom call so they were forced to clear it out.
Dumpster rental companies have seen growth during the pandemic. Many people realize a dumpster is an efficient way to dump things from garage or basement cleanouts or small DIY renovation jobs. People realize that if they can get organized, it gives them a feeling that they are more in control.
When everything is purged from your home, you can begin to see new ways to utilize the spaces. If you’ve been working from home from your dining room table, suddenly a spare bedroom that was once cluttered with junk is now a great space to great that home office you have been desperately needing. Maybe now that the basement is devoid of everything you have ever owned, it can become a movie room or hang out space for the kids.
Hiring a custom closet company may be the solution once you have cleaned out your home. Having built-ins and closets that have ample storage space for all of your needs is an excellent way to organize your home. While we are all still pretty much sheltering in place, we might as well make our homes easy to live in. If there isn’t any chaos, we will have stress less. And if we have stress less, we will be more productive and happier.
