Tips for Keeping Your Home Clean This Summer

June 30, 2021

While summer is always a fun season, you’ll likely find yourself having to clean more, or have your professional cleaners pay more frequent visits to your home. This is because people are often in and out of the house during summer, tracking in dirt and other debris. Summer also brings about new allergens that could find their way into your home, including pollen. Properly cleaning your home will help prevent allergies or other issues from affecting you and your loved ones. Follow the tips below to ensure your home stays clean this summer.

Make cleaning a routine

It’s easy to forget to clean your home, especially when you’ve got a lot going during the summer. Creating a schedule will help you develop a cleaning routine, so you never forget to clean things up. Start by making a list of all the tasks you’ll need to complete. After that, decide on how often to clean certain areas of the house. For example, your bathroom might need cleaning every day, while the bedroom only needs cleaning once a week. As mentioned above, you’ll probably want to clean more in the summer than you do in winter or fall.

Once you’ve got a cleaning schedule in place, do your best to stick to it. A clean home helps facilitate a restful mind, so it’s important to keep this cleaning schedule.

Remove clutter

Not only does clutter take up too much useful space in your home, but it can also collect plenty of dirt and dust. Go through these piles of clutter and decide what you’d actually like to keep. Once you’ve gotten rid of some clutter, you’ll be amazed by how much extra space you have. Having this extra space will make your home feel more open. It’ll also be much easier to clean all areas of your home with less clutter lying around.

Maintain all areas of your home

While you probably want to spend most your time outdoors during the summer, it’s important to spend some time cleaning all areas of your home. Your bathroom, kitchen, bedroom and all other rooms will need attention at one point. Cleaning certain rooms might involve dusting ceiling fans, cleaning air vents, vacuuming floors, sweeping and much more.

When cleaning your home, be sure to only use safe cleaning supplies and materials. You don’t want to use products that feature harsh chemicals, as they can sometimes destroy your surfaces. Not only that, but using harsh chemicals could result in serious injury.

When going to purchase cleaning materials, be sure to read the label carefully. If you’re looking for a safe an environmentally-friendly cleaning solution, consider making your own out of white vinegar, dish soap and water.

Work with a professional cleaning service

Keeping your entire home clean all summer isn’t an easy feat. And besides, you’ll probably want to spend more time with family and friends instead of cleaning. This is when it’s beneficial to bring in a professional home cleaning service. Working with professional cleaners will save plenty of time and ensure your home receives the best cleaning possible.
