3 Steps to a Cleaner Home

Keeping your home clean is a never-ending chore, sometimes it can be overwhelming. It is much easier if you have a schedule that includes preventative maintenance. By planning ahead and spreading the tasks throughout the week, you will notice you aren’t stuck all weekend trying to catch up with house cleaning chores.

Here are a few suggestions:diy cleaning house tips carpet cleaning ottawa kemptville

  1. Keep the dirt outside

By having a quality mat outside your entry doors, this encourages people to shake the dust off their shoes before entering your house. You can also put a small sign kindly asking visitors to take off their shoes.

  1. Stop the stacking

It doesn’t take long before dishes in the kitchen start stacking up in the sink and on the counters. Make it a habit to clean and put away immediately all the dishes that were used. The chore is a lot easier if it is done right away because the dishes clean off easier and you’re not stuck cleaning a big stack.

  1. Team effort

It can be a challenge, especially when everyone has a different schedule (work, school, soccer practice, etc.). But if everyone takes a few minutes in the morning (make their bed, clean up after themselves, tidy up their rooms) the house will be much cleaner for the day and you get to come home to a clean house. Also, set time aside every week where the whole family does a “speed clean” where everyone works together for a short period of time to put away items laying around, vacuum, dust, etc.
