We all have different upbringings. Some of us might have had parents that put a lot of emphasis on keeping your living area tidy, while others might not have cared at all. Usually, this is something that we bring with us into our adult lives. That is why some homes will be pristine while others will be like walking through a maze. While having a lot of clutter at home might not seem like a problem to you, it could actually affect the sale of your home. How is that? When a potential buyer sees the clutter in your home, it makes your home look smaller. Having a lot of items loose in your garage can also make it look like that there isn’t enough storage in your home.

Clutter also provides an excellent hiding spot for rodents, bugs and other pests. Sometimes, an infestation can go unnoticed for a longer time than it should have.
