With Hari Raya just less than a month away, it is time to start preparing your home for the festive season. We know that it can be tricky trying to keep up with all the house cleaning chores and working/studying at the same time, especially during the fasting month. So, if you are tight on time, here are three useful tips to get your home ready for Hari Raya this year!
Start decluttering your home
During the Hari Raya period, most of us will invite our family members and close friends to our home to celebrate and feast together. This is why it is key to have your home look clean and presentable so that when your guests visit your home, they will have a pleasant experience.
If you have limited time, you should gather your family members and start tackling common areas such as the living room and kitchen first. Start throwing away items and food products that have expired or are not in good condition. If you have a corner where you tend to pile up various things and clothes, you should also declutter them. If you have items that are still in good condition but you find no use for them or are unable to fit into them, consider donating them to various charities as a way to declutter and help someone in need at the same time!
Seek professional help
Really busy (or too lazy) to do the cleaning yourself? Don’t fret. You can always seek professional help. There are many part-time cleaners that you can engage in Malaysia who can help you with your home spring cleaning at a time that fits your schedule. Just check out companies such as Maideasy, Kilat Kilat etc., who will provide professionally trained housekeepers at an affordable cost, starting from just RM30-60/ hour. If you are new to these cleaning services, it might be a good time to try them during the festive seasons.
Explore self-storage to enjoy extra space at home
Living in a small space or finding ways to maximise your home space? Why not try renting a self-storage unit? This way, you can store your family and personal items and enjoy extra space at home! By renting a self-storage unit at self-storage facilities such as Extra Space Asia Self-Storage, you will also enjoy 24 hours access to your items where you can store and retrieve your items any time, any day. These storage units will also come in handy after the festive season as you can use them to store your personal collection or even festive-related items and big bulky belongings that are hardly used.
The best part about renting a self-storage unit at Extra Space Asia is that you are only paying for the storage space you rent, and the storage duration is also flexible as you can rent from as short as 14 days to as long as you need! At Extra Space Asia, we offer both lockers and walk-in units, which you can choose to rent according to your storage needs.
