4 Tips for a Clean Home All School Year

Shoes Come Off at the Door

Establishing some ground rules will help ensure that your family is all on the same page when it comes to keeping a clean house. A rule that we have always found to be helpful was that of taking off shoes at the door. This eliminates dirt, germs, and other nasties from being tracked into your home, keeping your carpet looking cleaner for longer. Keep a mat by each door to make this task quick and easy for all family members.

Clean Hands for a Clean Home

If you are a parent, then you know all too well how quickly sickness can spread at the beginning of the school year when kids are reintroduced to all the new germs and viruses all over again. Being diligent about washing hands can help eliminate the transfer of germs and bacteria and it is wise for everyone to do this as soon as they get home from school. You can do the same when you get home from work to set a good example and writing a note on the mirror can help remind everyone of this rule.

Prioritize Cleaning Tasks

You know how it is at work — when everything is a priority, nothing is a priority. The same can be said for keeping a clean house, which is why we always recommend prioritizing and delegating your cleaning tasks. Call a family meeting to determine the most important cleaning tasks, how often they should be done, and who will do them. Follow this up by creating a schedule and keep it somewhere that is easy to reference at all times.

Consider Calling In for Backup

All things considered, you have your hands full during the school year between sports practices, school programs, and other commitments. The last thing you want to do is clean your home at the end of a long day or week. Hiring an experienced Spokane Valley house cleaning company can help simplify your life, letting you check one more thing off of your to-do list in the summer. Imagine coming home to a clean house without even having to lift a finger — it doesn’t get any easier or more convenient than that!
