How To Maintain A Clean House

Posted on: 7 September 2017

Now that summer is winding down and kids are back in school, you might be focused on getting your house thoroughly clean and keeping it that way. From setting up a schedule to arranging for carpet cleaning, here are some ideas that might help you to maintain a clean home.

Create A Schedule - Start with the major cleaning and then set up days for each chore.

  • Can you thoroughly clean your house in a few hours or in one day? Perhaps you realize that you'll need to allow several days to do the job right.
  • Either way, mark the cleaning days on your calendar so that you won't schedule anything else for that time.
  • After the complete job has been completed, you'll be ready for the maintenance part of house cleaning.
  • For example, set aside about thirty minutes each day to do your cleaning. Mondays could be the days you spiffy up bathrooms, Tuesdays could be kitchen duty, and so on.

​Hire Professionals - Be realistic about the jobs that would be better done by a professional.

  • Consider hiring professionals that do dry carpet cleaning. Of course, you could rent the equipment to do the job yourself. However, by hiring professionals, you'll have the assurance that they are using state-of-the-art equipment and the best chemicals to do the job.
  • The same people who clean your carpets might also be available to clean your tile floors. If you decide to hire them, you'll probably be amazed at how clean the grout between your tiles will look.
  • If you have hard-to-reach windows, think about hiring professionals to clean them. That will be more affordable than a trip to the emergency room if you have a bad fall!
  • Think about scheduling professionals to clean your carpets and your windows on a periodic basis. By doing so, not only will you maintain the clean room you have achieved, but you might even save money on a package deal.

After your house is thoroughly clean, think about using one day a week to maintain the cleanliness you established. Get your family to help you, too. For example, use Saturday mornings to go through your own bedrooms to declutter, dust and change bed linens and towels. Also, think about giving each family member a specific job on Saturday mornings. For instance, one child can take out all the trash and pt it in a master garbage bin while another child is dusting the furniture.
