How To Maintain A Clean House

Arthur Menard

When it comes to keeping your house clean, do you feel like you're running in circles? You might feel that it's a never-ending chore. While it's true that there is always work to be done in a house, having a system that makes the job quick and efficient might help you to get the house clean and to maintain the job you've done.

Don't Work By Yourself - Whether you have one small child, a teenager, or many children, they should understand that being part of a family also means that you pitch in to help. In fact, even little children can do important jobs. Have a family meeting where you establish the fact that you are serious about getting the house clean and about everybody helping to maintain it. ​

  • Everybody should be in charge of putting away his or her belongings. For example, little kids who plan with tiny plastic building pieces should know that, once they're finished playing, the pieces go into a container and get put on a particular shelf. Remember the adage your mother used to repeat? There is a place for everything and everything should be in its place! At the risk of sounding just like your mother, teach your kids that same expression.
  • Help everybody in the family know that the more stuff you have, the more stuff you have to take care of. So, as family members are cleaning their own areas, it might be helpful to encourage them to give things to charity or to put them aside to be sold later at a yard sale.
  • Make sure there are plenty of caddies with cleaning rags and other cleaning products so that they will be easily accessible.

Get Organized - Set a schedule of things that will be done on certain days.

  • Mondays are great for doing laundry and getting bathrooms and bedrooms clean and orderly.
  • Tuesdays might be the right day for dusting and vacuuming.
  • Wednesdays could be the day you spiffy up the kitchen.
  • Thursdays and Fridays are just for checking out last minute chores that didn't get done.
  • Saturdays and Sundays are now free days because you did everything else early in the week.

Know Your Limits - Of course, low windows and mirrors are easy to clean. However, if you have high windows or huge windows, it is a really good idea to hire professionals to do the job. Paying somebody to do high windows is certainly less expensive than a trip to the emergency room! Professionals like Elite Clean Up will have the right equipment to access hard-to-reach places and they will leave you with windows that are sparkling and clean. The products they'll use are friendly to the environment, too. Consider setting up a service where the cleaners come to your house monthly or at least every few months to keep your windows looking beautiful.

Consider keeping a chore chart of extra things that need to be done. This would be a great way for your kids to make extra spending money.

When my wife and I were shopping for our first house a couple of years ago, one of the things that we were sure to pay a lot of attention to was the windows. Windows play an important role in the amount of energy your home uses to stay cool in the summer and warm during the winter. Window technology has come a long way in the last couple of decades and having the right windows can save you money on your monthly energy bills. This blog is here to enlighten you on what's out there and what's best for you and your home.
