If you want to keep your home cleaner than ever in 2017, we’ve got a few tips that will help you do just that.
Firstly, getting rid of things you don’t use anymore will make it so much easier to keep things tidy. What haven’t you used in a while? If you are struggling to find space for the things you do use every day (shoes, coats, the TV remote) have a think about what’s taking up storage space. Maybe a trip to the tip is in order, or you have some stuff that could be better used by someone else. This article describes some of the best techniques you can use to get rid of clutter in the home.
After you’ve done that, it’s time to better organise everything that survived the purge. Using various storage solutions to ensure that your possessions all have a proper place to live can make keeping things out the way so much easier. Having a rack or basket for shoes stops them getting kicked all over the hallway, and having a proper place to store the bits and bobs that clutter up furniture, tables and usable space makes these places easier to keep clean.
Once you’ve completed this part of the process, keeping your cleaning regime consistent should be a lot easier, which is important, because consistency is absolutely essential when it comes to turning new behaviours into a habit. Once you’ve been sticking to a cleaning schedule for a couple of weeks, you’ll soon find you do it on auto pilot. We’re not saying it will ever be super fun, but keeping on top of general cleanliness makes life much easier in the long run. A regular hoover or sweep of the relevant floor types will help reduce serious dirt building up and help extend the lifespan of your possessions and furnishings, but you should also consider getting professional help to make sure your carpets and upholstery stay in top shape for longer.
If you simply don’t have time to keep on top of the cleaning, we also offer a domestic cleaning service. If you want to extend the life and protect the investment you’ve made in your furniture and carpets, we can help with that too. Give us a call today and our friendly team will be happy to help!
