7 TIPS TO KEEP A CLEAN ENVIRONMENT IN YOUR HOME

keep a clean environment

It’s great to rely on a cleaning service like X-Act Care LLC, but what happens if you have weekly cleaning services and by the middle of the week your home needs a token of appreciation? Maintaining your home clean while having some routines on place will have an impact on your lifestyle. Once you get in the routine of following some of these tips daily you probably won’t have to clean every room every week. Don’t feel like you need to be the one to perform them all, either: get kids involved in the habit of doing a little for the house every day and they’ll grow to adults who know how to keep a clean home, too.

1. Make your bed

As the most visible surface in the bedroom, an unmade bed makes the whole room look messy. When it comes to making your bed, make sure you have all those wrinkles straighten before they become permanent! So go ahead: Put some order into your sleepiness by giving yourself plenty of room at night. Make your bed, and you’ll be able to relax easier. A neat room shows that all the clutter has been cleaned up for an evening’s worth of relaxation!

If tucking in sheets isn’t your thing, switch to a duvet with a removable cover that you can launder each week — you must pull it up and, boom, your bed’s tidy.

2. Empty the dishwasher each morning

The best way to avoid having a stack of dirty dishes by your sink is simple: empty the dishwasher every morning.  If you’ve ever timed yourself doing this, then know that it only takes 5 minutes at most! Emptying the dishwasher can be a daunting task. It’s not just about loading the right things into it, but also making sure everything dish, container, glass, and silverware get clean and dry enough to avoid mold or bacteria growth! Do yourself (and your family) a favor- empty out every cupboard before you start each morning so there are no surprises once lunch time rolls around.

3. Clean up after each meal or snack

Clean up after each meal or snack: whether you’re eating at the kitchen table, in front of the TV, or on your laptop in bed, make sure to take a moment to gather your trash and wipe down any surfaces that may have been splattered. This also goes for pet food and water dishes: rinse and refill them as necessary and take a moment to sweep or vacuum up any stray kibble or water. Since you already emptied your dishwasher, make sure you clean up after each meal or snack by loading the dishwasher and wiping down any counters with a homemade all-purpose cleaner.

4. Do a load of laundry daily

Developing a daily laundry habit is game-changing. Just pop a load in before heading to work then transfer it to the dryer when you get home. Fold as soon as the buzzer goes off and — this is the important part — put the clean clothes away.

start your day by loading the washer with yesterday’s clothes – this way you won’t have anything building up over time. If you can, try to remember to start your dryer before you head out for the day so that clothes can be folded and put away as soon as you get home.

5. Sort and recycle paper ASAP

Keep papers from piling up on the kitchen island and dining table by dealing with the mail when you walk in the door. Run junk mail through the shredder, then put bills and letters in a mail sorter or inbox to deal with on bill-paying day.

6. Use floor mats

use a rug at the front door to help collect dirt and debris before it has a chance to make its way inside, and place mats in high-traffic areas (like the kitchen and bathroom) to trap moisture and gunk. Clean them regularly – at least every other week – so they can do their job properly. Even if you can’t train your family not to wear shoes in the house (which really reduces household dust), you can keep most of the dirt out by placing floor mats both inside and outside of each exterior door. Vacuum or shake them outside every few days.

7. Run an auto vacuum cleaner nightly

Brooms and dustpans are a hassle. Use a multi-surface vacuum cleaner each night to go over the kitchen floor. It’s easy enough to turn it on and let it do its job.

Performing these tips to keeping a clean house takes only a few minutes a day, but they’ll keep your home looking continually clean no matter how busy life gets.
