It’s very difficult to keep your home clean on a consistent basis. If you are looking to improve the maintenance of your home, then you are going to need to put a system into place. Here are 3 ways to make that happen:
Breakdown Daily, Weekly, Monthly Tasks
The most well maintained homes remain that way because there is a system in place to keep everything looking and running great. To make the most of your home maintenance program, you need to create a set of daily, weekly, and monthly tasks. Having a schedule will help make sure that you don’t miss any tasks; and will keep you organized in the long run.
Make A Supply Run At The Start Of Every Month
If you’re not someone who naturally loves to clean, then it can be very easy to come up with excuses for not getting the job done. The excuse that comes up most often is the lack of cleaning supplies. If you don’t have the tools to do the job, then why should you even bother?
To take away this excuse, you will need to set aside time on the first day of every month to go out and stock up on cleaning supplies. It would be ideal to make an inventory of the supplies that you need to keep things clean, and then run an “inventory check” on the last day of every month as well. You might as well save money while you’re at it!
Split Duties When Possible
Trying to keep a house clean on your own should be right up there with defusing bombs in terms of the stress induced. If you live with family or roommates, then you need to split your home maintenance duties amongst everyone. Doing so will make things easier on you; but more importantly it will prevent resentment from building within the household.
