“Tips To Keep A Clean Home As A Busy Parent” is a collaborative post.
Being a parent can be tough, and one of the main responsibilities that come with owning a home is to keep it clean. Now doing that as a parent can be difficult, especially when your attention is required elsewhere. So with that in mind, here are a few tips that help keep your home clean as a busy parent.
Tips To Keep A Clean Home As A Busy Parent
Schedule In One Room At A Time
Just like you would for anything in life, book in a time and day to tackle each room, one at a time. To take on the whole property no matter if it’s an apartment or house, will seem impossible to do. So doing it one room at a time is much more realistic.
You might not have a lot of time to spare, so ensure you’ve set a certain amount of time for each room. Then plan ahead and create a to-do list so that you know exactly what you’re cleaning instead of aimlessly cleaning around a room. That’s likely to take longer and it also means you probably won’t get everything done. Taking it a room at a time will stop you feeling like you’re rushing and putting pressure on yourself.
Get A Professional Cleaner In
It might not be something you have all the time, but it will certainly help on the odd occasion when life gets too busy. Hiring a professional cleaner is handy for when you need an extra helping hand. Depending on how often you want them in for, it could simply be once a fortnight or once a month to do a proper deep clean of the property.
You want to think about your schedule and fitting the cleaner into that, especially if you want to be in when the cleaner arrives. There may come a time when you can give the cleaner their own set of keys and then you might not need to plan ahead so much. However, if it’s just going to be on the odd occasion, it’s best to know your routine and schedule for the next month at least as cleaners can tend to get booked up quite quickly.
Look online for recommendations and use a reputable site that’s known for having excellent cleaners on their books. Ensure you’ve got all the relevant cleaning products stocked too and that you consider getting a professional cleaning for your rugs from places like the Devine #1 Rug Clean Service.
Practise Cleaning Up After Yourselves
The main reason why the home gets dirty is that we often leave things out. And that’s when a mess happens because we’re not cleaning up after ourselves. Think about everyone in the household and who might not be cleaning up after themselves. Perhaps it’s all of you? Depending on who’s the culprit, it’s important to practise cleaning up after yourself and having respect for your space.
Everyone needs to realize that you’re all sharing something together and so it’s important that everyone’s doing their bit in order to keep it clean at all times. Get the whole family involved when it comes to cleaning because it’s not fair for just one member of the household to be responsible for the cleaning in the home. You can give everyone a different task to do so that they understand the importance of keeping everything clean.
Keep Your Home Free Of Clutter
Keeping your home clean is one thing, but keeping your home free of clutter is also important, and one that can make your home feel messy, even if it isn’t. Clutter can take up a lot of space in your home, and it’s not going to make you feel fantastic when you come home after a long day. Clearing the clutter is important, and so it’s good to do a regular decluttering of your home every so often. Be brutal with what you’re throwing out and ensure that everything has now got a home. If it hasn’t, buy more storage or throw it.
Use Robotic Cleaners
And finally, robotic cleaners are certainly more popular in the home. These cleaners work on cleaning the floor automatically and go around every little space within the home to help keep it clean. They can run by themselves and can self-charge themselves too.
Keeping a clean home is tough as a busy parent, but with these tips, you should certainly see a difference in your home, whether it’s bringing in a professional cleaner or letting the robotic cleaners do the work for you.
