Basement Cleanouts: How to Benefit from Clutter Control
Why clearing out your basement can be life-changing
Basements are low-traffic, out-of the-way areas of homes that are incredibly easy to use as storage. It’s even easier to let the things you store down there to fill the basement to capacity. Over time, the sentimental items, old furniture, and other random objects tend to pile up, turning the basement into a disorganized catch-all space for items that have no place in other rooms in your house. This results in damaged or lost possessions and a missed opportunity for a space that could be better utilized. Here are some of the benefits of basement cleanouts.
Pest Control and Prevention
Because clutter invites pests, removing it is a great way to keep critters out of your home. Spiders and mice seek out the quiet areas of a home to create their nests, making cluttered basements a perfect hiding spot. Silverfish feed on starchy paper products, putting your treasured family photo albums at risk.
Peace of Mind
Weeding through old things and tossing what you no longer want or need helps you better protect those precious, sentimental items you want to hold onto forever. Buy waterproof storage containers for these items. Then look into donating, recycling, or throwing out any not-so-precious belongings that are just taking up space.
Benefit Yourself and Others
One person’s trash is another person’s treasure. When sorting through your old, unwanted items, there’s bound to be a pile afterward that you know would be of use to someone else. By selling your stuff online or donating it to people in need, you’re either putting extra cash in your pocket or helping out a fellow human. It’s a win-win.
