Tips for Keeping Clean in-between Professional Cleans with Minimal Effort
Here at HouseProud, we love to keep your home sparkling. Our house cleaning services are available whenever you need them, but we understand that you don’t want us hanging around every day. So then, how do you keep your walls and floors manageable between visits? Here are a few suggestions that might help.
You might have noticed that when your house is messy, it will look dirty even if all your surfaces are spotless. Your brain somehow equates untidiness with a lack of cleanliness, so keep things in their place and your house will seem far more hygienic.
It can be hard to keep things tidy when you have little ones in the house, so make it a game. When their toys start to fill every free space, give them a challenge. Ask who can put their toys away the fastest, and offer a small reward for it. Ideally, you should use a gold star rather than an actual bribe, or you might end up with kids that deliberately mess up for goodies.
Make sure you have plenty of attractive storage options. Kids can have toy boxes and hampers placed strategically around the home. If you can, get mobile storage that they can move from room to room. After all, if they’re playing during the day, you probably want them where you can keep an eye on them.
Get them colourful toy trolleys that they can bring from their rooms and take back at bedtime. You might also have designated toy corners in your living areas, and you can use boxes that match the general décor. Adults need storage too, so have some bookshelves and knick-knack baskets for storing random items.
In your bathrooms, you can use plastic containers and pretty wicker accessories to keep your lotions and potions. Put them in one place rather than piling them on counters and sinks, since this quickly develops into clutter.
Get rid of empty cans and bottles. If you have a lot of bathroom paraphernalia, consider installing a small bathroom shelf. Once the surfaces are empty, wipe them with warm soapy water to get rid of soap suds and accumulated dust.
Your kitchen can be another draining disaster area. There are two kinds of kitchen managers. Some wash dishes as soon as they are used. Others let the dishes pile up and do them in stacks. While it’s tempting to follow the latter approach, it quickly leads to a messy kitchen, and that easily spills over to the rest of the house.
For your own peace of mind, get into the habit of having a clean sink. Try clearing dishes immediately after meals. After washing, wipe the counters and leave everything dry. The pleasant feeling of a fresh kitchen sink will inspire you to keep it that way, and you’ll soon find yourself tidying the rest of the house as well.
With these mini-cleaning tasks handled, you’ll find yourself relaxed and free to do other tasks. Then, once a week, you can call in a professional home carpet cleaner, for example, to handle the heavier chores. Give us a call on 1300 880 198 and we’ll give you a free, no-obligation quote for all forms of domestic hygiene.
