The summer months are here, and for many, it’s not all fun and games. In many parts of the country, temperatures can get not only uncomfortably high but also dangerous.

Since everyone has been spending more time at home lately, it only makes sense that the clutter lying around everywhere has been bothering you. There may be too many trinkets lying around on the bookshelf, or maybe your garage is full of boxes and you’ve even forgotten what’s in them!

Cleaning has become a positive cultural practice with seasonal implications. It’s common to hear someone you know (or maybe even yourself!) talking about how they are going to do a big summer house cleanup. The concept of these big seasonal cleanups is inherently tiring. It implies a full day or even a couple of days or excruciatingly intense cleaning and organization of your home’s different parts and rooms. This will be daunting for most people, especially those with 9 to five jobs, which can lead to disorganizing habits generated by the mere idea of beginning or even preparing to do a cleaning of this sort.

This has given the term ‘makeover’ something of a harsh connotation as if to have a makeover you have needed one for a while.
