A clean home is a happy home. Though cleaning is not considered by many to be "fun," finding a daily, weekly, and monthly routine to clean your home will be of great benefit to all who step inside. Plus, once you've cleaned the things you set out to, sitting down and relaxing will be much more rewarding. Though there are many "right ways" to clean a house, today we are going to share our house cleaning tips on what we have found to work the best and what things you should avoid when creating your cleaning routine.
Because living areas such as the living room, family room, and den are rooms in the house where people frequently congregate, they often end up being some of the messiest rooms of the home.
Spend time each day tidying up to keep the room looking welcoming to family members and guests.
Vacuuming regularly to keep dirt and crumbs under control, especially after a large gathering, game night, or movie night that involved popcorn and other treats. Vacuuming regularly or directly after noticing crumbs will also keep them from spreading to other rooms of the house.
In addition to vacuuming the floors, don't forget to vacuum the couches! They are likely to catch much more popcorn that you are aware of.
If your upholstery or carpets have taken a downhill turn, make sure to call our Zerorez team and set up a time for them to come out and give your surfaces that much needed professional upholstery or carpet cleaning before it's too late and they need replacing.
Don't stop at simply tidying up! There is more to do!
Don't sweep things under the sofa, brush crumbs onto the floor without vacuuming, or shove things in the closet. Taking the time to do it right will be worth it in the long run.
Don't forget to vacuum curtains, dust bookshelves, and clean other things that are not commonly touched every once in a while.
Don't vacuum and dust after! Doing that will reverse the work you've already done. Always dust before vacuuming.
Like the living areas, your home's kitchen is a major activity hub that often experiences way more messes, spills, and accidents than other areas in the home.
Do the dishes directly after every meal. When you do the dishes right away, they are 10 times easier to clean, plus you are free of the stress that comes with chores and to-do lists piling up.
If you use a dishwasher, rinse all that you can off the dish before putting it in the dishwasher. That way your dishes will come out sparkling clean.
If your tile or wood floors seem to never restore their shine no matter how much mopping you do, call and set up a time for our Zerorez team to come and assess how we can give your floors a new life.
Don't let spills sit and get sticky! Clean them up right away.
Don't forget to read the label. When using household cleaners, especially disinfectants, the label will tell you how long it needs to sit on the surface in order to work properly.
Because we spend so much time in our beds and bedrooms they are prone to collecting nasties and getting dirty quickly.
Washing and changing your sheets should be a weekly ritual. Use the hottest water temperature the sheet's fabric will allow helping disinfect and remove all buildup.
If the carpet in your bedrooms is looking a little dull and flattened by foot traffic, the Zerorez carpet cleaning process will bring them back to life. Plus, our cleaning process is safe for kids and pets.
Don't skip the pillowcases. If you don't have enough time to wash all the sheets every week, at least wash pillowcases to prevent getting breakouts.
Don't allow for food to be eaten in bedrooms. This will help prevent carpets from getting dirtier even faster.
