With Coronavirus keeping us all indoors, everyone has a bit more time on their hands. Having a clean home is more important now than it has ever been.
By spending so much time in your home, you might start to notice every little fault. Every stain, every bit of clutter and every odd smell will suddenly become very apparent to you.
If you’re looking for something to do that is both productive and helpful, you might consider developing new habits to keep your house neat and spotless.
As such, we have come up with four tips you can practice to have a neater, clean home.
1) Purge the clutter
The first thing you should do if you have a messy or cluttered house is get rid of unused items. These take up vital space.
It has been said that we only use 20% of the stuff we own and 80% of the stuff we own is either unused or kept for purely sentimental reasons.
You don’t need to get rid of every bit of the remaining 80%, but you should definitely start from there.
2) A place for everything
One of the main reasons people have clutter is that they just leave things around the house and never bother to put them anywhere.
You might leave your shoes on the ground somewhere or leave cups in the lounge room or just put books down wherever you were reading them, never to be picked up again.
If that’s the case, then you should make sure you have a place for all these items. Get a shoe rack, make cupboard space dedicated to cups and get new bookshelves to put all your books in.
Once you make this space, dedicate yourself to always putting these items in their correct spot.
3) Get proactive
Another big reason people have messy or dirty houses is that they allow problems to get too large.
Often, the grass gets too long to mow or there’s too much grime in your shower to bother cleaning or a mess is simply too time-consuming to clean up, so we simply will not do it.
That’s why it’s so important to get proactive and address these problems before they start.
Mow your grass before it gets too long and spray shower cleaner every few days to stop grime from building up.
Although it can be annoying at first, building these good habits up will help you stop problems before they start.
4) Annual pest inspections
Another important reason to keep your home clean is to prevent pests.
Where mess resides, pests generally follow. This is because they are attracted to the small, dark places that mess creates. Likewise, they are also attracted to our food mess.
By following these tips and booking your annual pest inspection, you can have a clean home in no time.
