Living with self-isolation is a challenge on all of us. We need to find ways to keep our mind active and to keep ourselves physically fit. Instead of stressing about things we can’t control, it’s time to take on projects we’ve been putting off.


One of the best ways to do that is to look at how we can improve our own space. There are probably countless projects you’ve been thinking about and many different things you could do to clean your home and make your space healthier for the whole family. Here are 5 ways to keep your home clean during self-isolation.


Time to Declutter

The average family has a lot of stuff these days. We accumulate things over time and it’s sometimes hard to let go of them. That can lead to a lot of clutter over the years. With so much more time on our hands, it’s a great time to reevaluate what we really need and what are the things we can live without.

Now is a perfect time to declutter. For anyone wondering what you can do with everything you want to throw out now that so many places are closed – you can still have your waste removed safely and without taking unnecessary risks.

A great way to do this is to rent a dumpster that can be delivered right to your driveway. You can safely throw away your old clutter without leaving your home and the dumpster can be delivered to you without any physical contact.

Transform Your Garage

Clearing out the home isn’t the only thing you can do to declutter while in self-isolation. Another great idea is to clear out that garage as well. Most of us store a lot of things there over the years and this is the perfect time to decide what should stay and what should go. It can be done right after that home declutter so you can take advantage of that dumpster that’s already sitting in your driveway!

Make that Spare Room an Office

It’s not uncommon to have a spare room that doesn’t get a lot of use. Now is the perfect time to make that room an office with so many people working from home. If you need a new desk you can order one to be delivered online, or you may have something unused around the house that will suit the purpose. That’s the best option and it may even free up some room elsewhere in the house.


Clean Up Your Backyard

Just because you’re outdoors doesn’t mean germs aren’t present. In fact, with the extra time we have at our homes, this is the best time to organize and possibly upgrade our backyards.

If you have an outdoor kitchen, make sure to regularly sanitize it with every use.


A Deep Clean of the Home

Last, but not least, this is a great time to do a deep clean of your home. Get out the glass cleaner, the furniture polish and the carpet deodorizer.  Not only will your home smell better, but it will also be a cleaner, germ-free environment for you and your family.
