Tackling Messes around the Home

Tackling Messes around the Home.

Maintaining a clean home all year long may take some planning and effort, especially if you find yourself short on time. Instead of letting messes build up, house cleaning can be done on a regular basis to ensure a safe and healthy environment. You can tackle dust, dirt, and clutter with just a few tools and products.

Before starting in any room, be sure that you have the necessary items on hand. A broom and dustpan, vacuum, duster, and some cleaning products will ensure a thorough job well done. Cut up old shirts to use as rags instead of going out and buying them. You can even make your own cleaning solution from a few basic ingredients, such as baking soda and vinegar.

Once you are ready to go in a specific room, start by moving large pieces of furniture and dusting surfaces. Dusting first helps to push any loose particles onto the floor and they can be collected with the vacuum. Next you can vacuum the floor and get all along the baseboards. You will be amazed at how much dust can accumulate behind and underneath of furniture.

Once vacuuming is completed, you can polish the floors if you have hardwoods. Tile and linoleum floors can be mopped up. All you need is water, soap and vinegar. Check furniture for nicks, scratches, and dents. You can polish up wooden pieces and repair any small spots. A dry and clean cloth can be used to buff up wooden furniture once the polish has dried.

The bathroom is often the least favorite room of the home to clean. Mold and mildew can grow and thrive if the room is not kept up with regularly. Start by scrubbing the shower and tub with a brush or sponge that will not scratch or damage the surface. You can use baking soda on a sponge and vinegar for that. Also you can make a vinegar and water cleaning solution for mirrors to remove any spots.

For many people, cleaning is not a pleasant chore to have to tackle very often. It is much better to clean frequently so that messes stay minimal and dirt and grime don’t accumulate.
