House cleaning in stages
House cleaning is really more about lifestyle than it is about chores. The best example is usually a military family. On average, military families move every 2.5 years. Every family member from Papa Bear on down to the youngest toddler develops a keen awareness of what is in the home because they know that they will be packing it up in the near future. Hence, the family develops lifestyles in which useless items, as well as items that are used less; are given away or purged from the household inventory. This means that there is less opportunity for clutter, making the home easier to clean. For the majority of us, the recent holiday season probably added numerous new items to our home, and suddenly we are aware of spaces that are cluttered, or what we affectionately call, “bird nests.”
These little clutter zones in the home are the impetus behind our New Year’s resolution to keep a clean home. Once we start the project, we quickly find out that this is a daunting and time consuming task. This will help some homeowners to realize that they need the services of a maid service. Remember when we said that house cleaning is more about lifestyle that it is chores? Consider the following tips that can help you keep your house cleaning easier.
Cull the clutter
For most of us, the holiday season means new toys, clothes, shoes, and books. In addition to gift items, many people went out and stocked up on new holiday decorations at fire sale prices. Look around, the possibility is great that every room is a bit cluttered, and most of the storage spaces are overflowing and unorganized. Culling the clutter means that you make a conscious effort that when a new item received, two old items have to go. By implementing this rule, you will be surprised how quickly you will eliminate unnecessary clutter, while donating your unwanted items to families in need. You should take the same approach with holiday decorations. Be sure to donate any decorations that you did not use this year, and throw away any decorations that are worn out by years of use.
Divide and conquer
If you plan on cleaning you home yourself, divide it into sections that will turn your giant sized project into manageable tasks. Start by cleaning one room at a time. Use the same organization tactics in every room. Consider three easy steps.
- Label – put rarely used items in boxes or bins and label them accordingly so that the items are easy to find when you need them.
- Donate – You are guaranteed to find some things that are no longer useful, set these items aside and take them directly to a donation station.
- Throw away – Get rid of items that are no longer useful to anyone. If you longer need something, or if it no longer works, get rid of it.
Sometimes it helps to have an objective and professional hand to help through the process. Consider retaining the services of one of the house cleaning services in the Charlotte area.
