What inspired Cleanster's mission for spring cleaning? 

Spring marks a time of renewal and new beginnings, often symbolizing a fresh start. This season is typically associated with decluttering and cleaning. At Cleanster, we are dedicated to transforming spring cleaning into an empowering activity, recognizing that a clean and organized environment greatly benefits mental and emotional health. Our efficient and straightforward cleaning platform aims to rejuvenate your living areas, thereby minimizing stress and boosting productivity. The empowerment stems from the sense of accomplishment and serenity that comes with a spotless and organized space, which aligns with Cleanster's mission to make cleanliness attainable for all.

Top downsizing advice for a clutter-free home?

  1. Begin Simply: Tackle less complex areas first, such as a drawer filled with old letters or a cluttered shelf.
  2. Adopt the 6-Month to 1-Year Rule: If an item hasn't been used in the last six months to a year, think about donating, selling, or recycling it. Make exceptions for seasonal items and heirlooms.
  3. Sort Your Belongings: Organize your items into four groups: keep, donate, sell, and throw away.
  4. Ask for help: If you need help, don't hesitate to ask friends, family, or hire a professional from services like Cleanster.
  5. Go Digital: Reduce physical clutter by converting documents, photos, and memorabilia to digital form.
  6. Focus Room by Room: Deal with one room at a time to avoid feeling overwhelmed and to see clear progress.
  7. Apply the One-In-One-Out Rule: When a new item comes into your home, ensure an old one leaves, maintaining equilibrium and preventing clutter.
  8. Set limit: Set definite spaces or containers for your items and adhere to these limits strictly.
  9. Visualize Your Ideal Space: Maintain a clear image of your desired living space to steer your decluttering journey.
  10. Keep Up Regularly: Establish a routine for reviewing and decluttering your space to avoid future accumulation and maintain a neat, functional home.

How does Cleanster support sustainable cleaning practices? 

Through our blogs, we consistently offer education to both clients and cleaners, providing valuable information and advice on how to keep homes clean while being environmentally conscious.

Additionally, we advocate for proper recycling practices during cleaning tasks to ensure the responsible disposal of recyclable materials.

The importance of a fresh start: How does spring cleaning impact well-being? 

The importance of a fresh start, significantly impacts well-being in many aspects: 

  1. Mental Clarity and Focus: When you clear out clutter you have a clearer mind. You eliminate distractions which leads to better productivity.
  2. Decrease Stress:  A clean organized space reduces stress and creates a peaceful living space. 
  3. Physical Health: Removing dust, mold, and other allergens can improve air quality and lead to better breathing and fewer health issues.
