Helpful Ways To Keep Your Home Clean

December 16, 2023

If cleaning your home seems as though it has become a full-time job, it is time to approach the task from a different direction. Keep reading for a few helpful tips on how to tackle the dust and dirt.

Invest in an air purifier.

Contaminants are floating in the air all around you. Over time, they settle and build up with the dust in your home. Despite the presence of these unwanted harmful chemicals, you do not need to worry as you have preventative solutions available to mitigate them.

An effective way to reduce gasses and irritants in the air is by placing a high-quality air purifier in your home. It is important to do your research before investing in one to ensure you purchase the best model. Some factors to consider include the size of the room you will place it in, the cost, and whether or not the device will filter out a specific gas or irritant.

Air purifiers work by sucking air into the device where it is processed through a filter and separates the contaminants from the air. Once this process is complete, the fresh air is pushed back into the room free of the trapped gasses and dust. The entire cycle is quick and seamless, allowing you and your loved ones to breathe freely.

Create a cleaning schedule.

Cleaning can become a big job if you let it. Be proactive and take care of small and necessary tasks every day, such as keeping the kitchen clean. For bigger cleaning projects, schedule them on your calendar and treat them as appointments.

Prevent problems before they begin.

One of the biggest things you can do to keep your home clean is to leave shoes at the door. To encourage family members and houseguests to remove their shoes upon entering your home, you can do a few things to help nudge them in the right direction.

  • The first thing to do is to politely ask them to take their shoes off.

  • Always have a bench or chair that is clear of clutter for them to sit on.

  • Place a dedicated shoe tray or shelf for them to set their shoes.

  • A coat rack or closet is helpful for jackets, purses, or bags so they are not in the way while removing shoes.

  • Keep a basket of clean house slippers in a variety of sizes in the vicinity (it is helpful to purchase the sizes of your frequent visitors).

  • If utility workers are unable or disinterested in removing their shoes as sometimes happens, have a supply of disposable shoe covers nearby and ready.

By removing shoes from your home, you are also removing a host of contaminants and dirt from entering. Think about the places you go and the things you step on throughout any given day. It is always best to keep these things at the door. 

Now that you have some helpful tips on how to keep your home clean, you can breathe easier. Put on a podcast, ankle weights, and get started.
