House cleaning is a demanding task that needs to be done. It’s not something many people enjoy but it can be less demanding if you have organization and maintenance. You need to do it frequently to avoid having to deal with dirty surfaces and items, and, most of all, to have a healthy home – it takes very little to do the domestic cleaning, and the results are always big benefits which you should await and look forward to.
If you maintain the cleanliness of your home, it won’t get out of hand. Just clean up as soon as you have a chance. Do the kitchen cleaning after dinner. Quickly clean up the bathroom after you get ready in the morning of before you go to bed at night. Straighten up your living room before bed. Do upholstery cleaning if there are any after dinner stains on the sofa or any of the chairs. Don’t fool yourself – there might be more than you thought. Have your family help too. Give the kids chores so you aren’t as overwhelmed. Make sure you have plenty of good cleaners and cleaning supplies on hand so you have what you need. Maybe even keep some of the same house cleaners in stock in different places of the house, such as upstairs and downstairs. That way you don’t have to carry all the cleaning supplies to everywhere in the house.
Organization is also key is keeping your home clean. If you are very busy and just can’t find the time to clean each week, hire a cleaning service. They should do a good quality job too.
If you want to clean on your own, designate cleaning tasks to each day of the week. For example, you could clean the kitchen on Mondays. Clean bathrooms on Tuesdays. Tackle cleaning the bedrooms on Wednesdays and the living room on Thursdays. Friday could be laundry day or you could clean whatever didn’t get done earlier in the week. Then you have Saturday too, but try to rest on Sunday if possible.
Just make a plan and work at something each day. Write down your plan and put somewhere where you and everyone in the house will see it and know what’s needs to be done each day.
If you have an organised cleaning schedule, getting the job done will be a little bit easier. You get to reap all the rewards from that as soon as you wake up the next day and you take in a deep breath that shows you just what a good job you did with the domestic cleaning. Be proud of yourself – a little effort and a bit of planning goes a long way to make a healthy home.
