Maintaining the whole house clean can be a real task for anyone. We all feel much better when we are in a clean house then when there is stuff scattered around us in a dusty room, right? Furthermore, we feel much better when we are in a house that is clean – we are motivated and happy. If tidiness and health are the first two reasons why we should maintain our homes, our mental well-being doesn’t fall too much behind. We understand that this is an integral part of our daily activities, and we search for the best practical ways to implement changes in our cleaning skills.
When you try one method of cleaning and feel exhausted, you will lose the will to do it in the same way again if you didn’t get the results you wanted. But luckily there are several cleaning methods and we can choose the one according to our own liking. We offer you several suggestions on house cleaning and maintenance and hopefully, you will find these helpful. You don’t need to apply all the methods which we will mention further in the article, and you just have to recognize the best one for your needs.
Firstly, invest in gadgets that will make the whole process much more comfortable. This will not cost you a fortune, but it will make your cleaning much easier. Start with one room to test how much time and energy you invested in the process. I have tried that, and it has been my method of cleaning that fits my lifestyle. The first time it took me 25-30 minutes for only one room, now when I have new gadgets to help me and shortcuts where to clean, it takes me 10-15min for a room. Thankfully I just have three rooms to maintain.
Secondly, time matters. Sure, general overhauls are a must every few months, but maintaining your home should take about 15-20min for each room you clean. Here, we are talking about common cleans that occur every second/third day. Definitely, don’t forget to check out Household Hacks and find what you need. An old sock with vinegar to clean your blinds, kosher salt and lemons to freshen your chopping boards or lemon to control that stench from your garbage, are all simple and easy ways to clean. These are simple, but the most useful.
If you have guests coming soon and you don’t have enough time to clean the whole house, focus on preparing one room (living room) for them. As with the other rooms in the home, try opening the windows. That is how you can be ready for guests in just under 10 minutes. Of course, you can focus on the other rooms later on, as they need cleaning as well.
Hopefully, these tips and trips will help you the next time you start cleaning your home. Don’t forget to use any tool at your disposal to make this process as easy as possible.
