If you are looking for some tips on how to keep your Home nice and clean… these 5 things people with super clean homes do every day will give you a really good start!
Everyone has that one friend whose home is always pristine. Whether they live by themselves or have a large family, they have a magic touch that banishes clutter. You can tap into that magic without disrupting your lifestyle by reading about five things people with super clean homes do every day. Add these tips to your routine and you won’t have to look at piles of unsightly clutter until you’re free on the weekends.
1. Leave Their Shoes by the Door
After getting home from work or running errands, take your shoes off right inside your front door. Tracking them through the house covers your floors in bacteria and viruses that you stepped in while away from home. You’ll also notice more dirt buildup from the shoe-borne dust and debris. Ask your guests to do the same. Research shows that 50% of Americans don’t ask guests to remove their shoes at the front door, contributing to the mess they want to avoid.
2. Watch for Carpet Stains
Some carpet stains happen instantly, like if you knock a soda can over while eating a meal on the couch. Others occur over time. Keep an eye out for stains as you walk through your home. Your carpets will likely grow darker where there’s more foot traffic or where your pets relax.
People with super clean homes watch for carpet stains every day so they can schedule cleanings as needed. The professional equipment lifts stains easily and removes any mold growth that could make their home smell bad or become an unhealthy environment.
3. Put Money in Savings
Whenever possible, put a few dollars aside in a savings account or a piggy bank. When something breaks or needs replacing, you’ll have an emergency fund to quickly take care of the problem and make your home clean again.
Stains on the walls might require a new coat of paint. You could find loose carpet fibers that come apart from wear and tear and leave holes in your carpet. Even something simple like replacing your air filters will keep dust and pathogens out of your home and make it noticeably cleaner if you have an emergency fund.
4. Clean as They Go
Rushing through a list of chores on the weekend makes your home look more organized, but only once a week. People with super clean homes pick things up and wipe surfaces down as they go through their daily routine. Pick up toys when walking through the living room and sanitize commonly shared surfaces like faucets and door handles. Your home will look and feel cleaner every day with only a minimal amount of effort.
5. Make Their Bed Every Morning
Clutter becomes a problem when the sight of it overtakes your home. Take care of this problem by making your bed every morning. Even if a pile of dirty laundry still sits in the corner of your room, straightening the blankets and pillows will make any bedroom more organized. It’s much easier to make your home cleaner when visual sources of clutter, like an unmade bed, don’t cause extra stress.
Clean Your Home Every Day
These are five things people with super clean homes do every day and they’re easy to add to your routine. Small efforts like picking up toys, watching for carpet stains and wiping shared surfaces will improve the condition of your home and erase the anxiety that comes from a messy environment.
