Find a Place to Set Up Shop

The first step in organizing your home office is finding a space that you are comfortable with. This may seem obvious, but many people have their office at their kitchen table or living room floor because they never found time to set up an official workspace.

Where you work is the most important part of your daily work routine. It can be easy to get distracted while working in your home, but if you have an office space where you can focus, you’ll be able to get more done during the day.

Utilize Office Materials

Clean Up Clutter

Clean up clutter as soon as possible— clear off surfaces, use storage bins or boxes under furniture, recycle paper items that are outdated or unnecessary. A messy space means a chaotic mind, which won’t help you with work at all!

Keep Home Clean

Sometimes the best way to keep your home office organized is to ensure the rest of your home is clean. From air duct cleaning to attic or crawl space cleaning, a polished home helps clear the mind of clutter.

How To Tell If Water Damage is Old or New


Water damage can happen to anyone. A leaky pipe, your water heater bursting, or even your sprinkler system could be the culprit. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to tell how long you have been dealing with this type of issue. But, we have some helpful tips to help you determine just how long you have had this problem on your hands!

Standing Water

Many signs can help you figure out whether water has been leaking for a long time or just recently began to leak. Notice standing water on the floor around any of your appliances such as an oven, dishwasher, washing machine, or dryer? This could be an indication that there was previous damage here before.

Foul Odor

If you notice any foul odors coming from your basement or other areas where there might be water leaks, you probably have a water damage problem on your hands. Not only that but if it has had time to sit and permeate enough to cause a stench, then it’s been there for quite some time.

Noticeable Dips Throughout Your Home

A noticeable dip in your flooring or ceiling is a clear sign of water damage— and one that has had plenty of time to do tons of damage. This dip may seem like it would be obvious, but it’s pretty easy for spots like this to go unnoticed. Keep an eye out for these bubbles after big rainstorms or near appliances.

Fading Water Spots

Sometimes you notice problem areas when it’s too late! For example, if you see water spots in different places around your home that seem to be fading, then the damage came and left a mark that is now in the process of dissolving— but it’s long from being over.

Secret Spots Scary Critters Like to Hide in Your Home


You know the old saying, "out of sight, out of mind," well that doesn't work with creepy crawlers! Bugs can get into areas of your home that you'd never expect and often right under your nose. Here are some spots that these pesky pests like to hide in your home:

Behind and Under Furniture

Areas like underneath cushions on couches or chairs and more make for the perfect spot for bugs to get comfortable. Throughout various kinds of furniture, there are little areas that are just right for hiding out. You'll know if you have an issue if there have been multiple instances of seeing bugs on or around your furniture!

Behind Photos

Have you checked behind the pictures on your walls? Well, unfortunately, these are some prime spots that bugs like to hide. They will often try to find places where the homeowner can't see them because it makes it easier for them to stay hidden from predators and sneak up on their prey without being seen. And most homeowners, honestly, don't move the photo frames on their walls much!

In Your Air Ducts

Air ducts are some of the top spots for bugs to get into and make a home of. They are one of the best places because they have so many cracks, holes, and nooks for insects to fit in. Air ducts are also often located near other parts of your house with lots of openings or drafts, like windows or vents.

And if you believe your air ducts have an infestation or haven't been cleaned in a while, the team here at Greenpro Cleaning and Restoration is here to help.

How to Make The Most of Small Living Spaces


Tips And Tricks To Make The Most Of Small Living Spaces

It is easy to feel overwhelmed when living in a small space. One of the biggest challenges of these living situations is figuring out how to fit everything you need in the available area without making it look chaotic.

If you live in a small space and accumulating objects is one of your hobbies, here are some tips and tricks to help you optimize your place! 

Be Resourceful

If space is limited and you are looking for solutions to make your home a more efficiently organized place, be resourceful.

Look for pieces of furniture that can serve multiple purposes; chairs can become side tables, sofas can double as guest beds, and storage cubes will easily transform into extra seats when company comes over.

Decorate Wisely

If you want to make a room look bigger, invest in a few mirrors; your space will immediately feel larger and airier.

When possible, opt for neutral colors and add texture with decorative objects to keep the space from looking flat; this will trick the eye into thinking the room looks more spacious.

Choose functional furniture; extra storage under beds or built-in nooks on the side of a table are great ways to add storage and save space.

Use All Available Space

Using space efficiently doesn't have to be difficult. If you look around, you will find out that even the more unusual spots can provide extra storage for lighting, decoration, and other essentials.

Every inch and corner counts in a small house. Take advantage of any architectural oddities to turn your space into an efficiently organized area. A windowsill, for example, can be the ideal spot to display your books and plants. Make the most of your furniture by using the space between the top of a shelf and the ceiling to hold groceries or storage baskets. Additionally, install some removable hooks on your doors; you will be able to hang a wide variety of objects. Think jewelry, towels, bags, or cleaning supplies!

Remember, you don't have to display all your belongings; it will only make the rooms feel smaller and overwhelming.
