If you are like most of us, the hustle and bustle of everyday life can sometimes make it difficult to keep a home clean and tidy. The addition of kids and pets can make it seem like a never ending task. Piles of laundry, dirty dishes and shoes by the door can make any home feel cluttered in a matter of minutes. Check out the tips below from the team at Destin Premier.
1. Cut the Paper: everyday we get junk mail, coupons and flyers among many other things. These mailings along with notes and random pieces of paper can very quickly pile up. While it might seem easy to just add them all to a growing mountain, try and deal with these things on a daily basis. Throw away the junk and only keep what you will absolutely need or use. Sign up for paperless billing to cut down even more on unnecessary mail.
2. Cut Back Entryway Chaos: The entrance to a home can quickly become chaotic no matter how big or small it may be. With a collection of shoes, jackets and bags to name a few. If you don’t have a closet then hooks and a shoe rack can come in handy. Get your family used to hanging their belongings up and taking their shoes off at the door. This will help cut down your cleaning time without all the dirt being tracked all over the house.
3. Wipe down one area a day: spread out the housework over the week as opposed to tackling all of it in one day. Take 10 to 15 minutes a day to wipe down kitchen counters or bathroom sinks. On a different day vacuum the main areas of the home while leaving the toilet scrubbing for another time.
4. Get your carpets cleaned: although vacuuming weekly is a good way to keep your carpets cleaned, once a carpet has one too many stain spots or discoloration, it’s best to call the professionals. Don’t forget that a professional carpet cleaning should be done at least once a year to help extend the life of your carpet.
While keeping a home clean takes work, a little effort each day will save time overall. Don’t let cleaning take up your weekend and tackle it day by day. When you’re ready to have your carpets professionally cleaned give Destin Premier a call. We will get your carpets looking brand new again in no time.
