Clear out what you no longer need
There’s no point cleaning things that you no longer want or need. Unwanted clutter simply takes up space in your home and makes it look untidy – even if everything is clean. Declutter your home room by room, and either sell, donate or recycle anything you no longer need. It’ll make a big difference to maintaining your home going forward and will be the perfect way to start off the New Year.
Invest in items that are easier to clean
If you struggle to keep your home clean, you’ll want to identify what’s stopping you. More often than not, it’s things like the colour or shape of your furniture that’s the problem. Flooring can also require a lot of maintenance, and if you have light-coloured carpets you might find that you struggle to maintain their pristine appearance. Switching to furniture that’s easier to clean and engineered timber floor boards will cut down the amount of time it takes to get your home in tip top shape. Make life easier for yourself with a lower maintenance home!
Write a daily checklist
Instead of saving up all of your cleaning jobs for the weekend, spend time each day ticking off things from your home cleaning checklist to make light work of cleaning. You could tackle each room one day at a time or focus on short, simple tasks that keep your home clean when carried out regularly. 30 minutes a day can make all the difference, so why not start this new habit next year?
Try new products and ideas
How often do you try new cleaning products? Many people tend to stick to what they know, which means you could be missing out on the latest wonder products that can halve your cleaning time and deliver better results. Take a look at the latest home cleaning hacks and find ways to cut down your cleaning time to leave your home sparkling without the effort.
Unless you enjoy cleaning, it can be a dreaded chore – but it’s something that has to be done for you to maintain your home. Be smarter in 2019 by overhauling your approach to cleaning and look forward to a gleaming new home all-year round. It takes 30 days to make something a habit, so starting a new routine on January 1st could have you become a home cleaning guru before the first month is even over!
