A few tips from Houseproud for cleaning your home with kids
Sunday, April 25, 2010
If you are parents you know how difficult it can be be to keep a clean house. It is a fact that kids are messy and they usually know that Mum or Dad will take care of the mess they make. As kids grow older they learn to be more careful and take better care of their room and your home in general. But until they are old enough where they can do this it is the parent's responsibility to have a clean house. There are a few ways that parents can use to help them keep their house clean, no matter how messy their kids are.
One useful way to keep a home with kids clean is to ensure the kids understand that they have to pick up after themselves, especially after they have finished eating or playing. Kids should be taught this from a very young age and there will be consequences if they do not pick up after themselves. As parents you do have to remember that most kids are naturally messy and you will have to remind them, to pick up their toys, clothes, and dishes. It will eventually become a habit with them and it will mean reminding them over and over but it will eventually stick in their minds and become a habit. Many parents do not have patience to do this but when it finally sinks in it is well worth it. Learning this young will make picking up after themselves something that will stick with them for their whole life. So teach your kids when they are young to pick up after themselves and it will make having a cleaner Sydney house much easier.
Sometimes parents that have younger children find that they do not have a lot of time to keep a clean house. Raising kids is touch and it takes up a lot of your time. One of our customers Mary from Bella Vista told us that it has changed her life having a Houseproud Cleaner for her Bella Vista home. A friend suggested it might be a good idea, while her kids are very young, to hire a regular Bella Vista home cleaner to come in to clean once a week. This has reduced her stress and given her more time to spend with her family, she feels she is being a nice Mum and wife instead of behaving cranky and resentful.
We also recommend that when you walk around your Sydney house always make it a habit to stop in every room and straighten it up a little when passing through. This does not take a lot of time and it will make your Sydney home look better. Keep things from building up in rooms, such as dirty laundry, toys around the home, and dishes. By tackling these problems a little bit at a time you will have a cleaner home. Eventually the job will get done and you do not need to block out hours at a time to complete the tasks, which can take away from the most important time spent, which is with your kids while they are young.
