Do you ever think of your upcoming clean day with dread and little to no excitement? Don’t worry, as most people do. Ensuring your living space is clean is beneficial to your health and the value of your home. But wouldn’t it be great if your clean day was a little less stressful? Well, here are few tips you can use to make cleaning your home less stressful but efficient.
- Put cleaning systems in place
Cleaning your home is a great initiative, but what usually makes it a daunting task is not knowing where to start! To get the most out of your cleaning day, you need to put cleaning systems or plans in place. There are several ways you can achieve this. On the one hand, you can create a cleaning schedule for your cleaning day to ensure that all the areas you had to clean are dazzling. On the other hand, you can create a cleaning routine. In this case, you would put in place a system that requires a little cleaning every day to prevent a buildup of cleaning tasks you may not be able to handle. This is especially important for busy people who may not get a lot of time to have a cleaning day to deal with the mess generated during the week.
- Dust around your home and clean furniture fabric
Although it may not seem like it, dust settles on your surfaces more often than you would think. This can be detrimental to your health and that of your family. To make sure your home is safe and clean, dust your surfaces and your furniture regularly. Before you start dusting, ensure your fan is turned off. This would prevent the dust particles from spreading even further. When dusting, place your focus on the shelves, tables, countertops, and the tops of your other furniture. For your couches, beds, and pillows, you can get rid of dust by giving the covers a good wash and replacing them with new ones regularly.
- Disinfect surfaces
Now that you know your home constantly harbors harmful germs and bacteria (as the recent Coronavirus pandemic has shown), it is essential to disinfect your home. From your countertops and light switches to doorknobs and TV remotes, take the time to go through your home disinfecting surfaces that are prone to transfer germs and other unseen yet harmful agents. If you are worried about exposing your family to toxic chemicals by disinfecting regularly, you can use homemade disinfectants, which are just as effective.
- Focus on your tubs, sinks, and toilets
As you can imagine, your tubs, sinks, and toilets are exposed to so much dirt. This means they are likely to contain harmful germs and other agents such as mold and mildew – all of which are detrimental to your health. To ensure you keep a clean, safe, and sparkling home, you must ensure that you clean your bathrooms and kitchens (areas with these three items) thoroughly. But, how can you do this efficiently? You can spray cleaner in your bathroom tubs, sinks, and toilets. Leave it to sit in for a short time to dissolve stains and other agents. While you wait, you can clean your kitchen sink and microwave. Once you are done, you can return to your bathroom and scrub away the detergent. However, there may be some agents you may not be able to get rid of, such as mold and mildew. If you notice a significant amount of mold in these areas, be sure to contact a mold removal services expert to handle your mold problems professionally and ensure you have a safe and mold-free home.
- Clean as you go
Everybody wishes cleaning was as easy and relaxing as the Disney princesses make it seem. However, many have admitted that they find cleaning to be a therapeutic and relaxing activity. For many others, this activity does scream “fun.” Regardless of how you feel, you need to ensure your home is clean. So, instead of waiting for dirt and mess to pile up, why not clean as you go? Adopting such an attitude is an efficient way of keeping your house clean without worrying about tackling all the mess at once. Here are a few ways to do this: clean up areas immediately after you are done using them, ensure that there is a place for everything, hang up your clothes or put them in the laundry basket at the end of the day, or teach your children how to put their toys away.
