Coming home to a spotless house is a wonderful feeling that we are thrilled to be able to provide to families, couples, the elderly, and busy professionals in the Chicago area. But we know life happens and soon enough that professionally cleaned home doesn’t feel quite so clean and fresh. So, how do you keep that clean feeling lasting just a little longer?

Keep your Home Clean Longer

Here are a few tips to help you keep your home clean in between visits from your professional maid cleaning service.

Organize the Clutter

Clutter is the number one culprit of a messing feeling house. If everything in your home has a designated place, it can help keep the clutter from taking over. The mail is an easy example of a simple item that can turn your clean home into a cluttered mess. Designate a special spot for your mail to go and organized it by what you need to keep and what you can throw away immediately.

Focus your efforts

We all have rooms we use more often that others that tend to get messier faster. Spend just a few minutes each day picking up these rooms so that stay neat until your next cleaning. Since your home has already been professional cleaned, you only need to maintain that clean. Here are a few examples of the more common rooms or areas that we tend to notice need attention a little more often:

  • Bathroom: A quick daily pickup of your bathroom vanity and a wipe down of the sink with an antibacterial wipe should be enough to keep your bathroom looking good until your next visit.
  • Kitchen: Don’t let the dishes pile up – clean or dirty. Make sure everyone clears their place after each meal, disposed of scraps and places their dirty dishes in the sink or dishwasher to be cleaned. Put away the leftovers and wipe down the counters and tables. Then wash and put away the dishes every day.
  • Bedrooms: Clothes can be another item that piles up and can begin to overwhelm our homes. Put clean clothes away immediately and make sure dirty clothes go straight into the hamper.

Take out the Trash

It’s more likely that things are going to pile up on your countertops if our trash and recycling bins are full. Take the trash and recycling out more frequently to help combat the cutter.

Enjoy Your Clean Home

Following these simple tips can help you enjoy your clean home longer.
