Home Safety: How Cleaning Makes a Difference


How safe is your home? When you ask a question like that, most people talk about the locks they have on their doors or how recently they changed their fire detectors. How often do you think of house cleaning  as an important step in house safety?

The answer is probably not too often, but keeping the house clean yourself or with the help of a maid service can actually improve the safety and health of you and your family.

Falls, Trips, and Your Not-So-Funny Bone

A room full of clutter, boxes, or displaced furniture is a skinned knee or sore elbow waiting to happen. The more clutter you have, the less floor space, and that makes you more likely to trip or fall over things in your home.

If you’ve ever accidentally hit your funny bone or knee on your desk, cabinet, or other object, you know how much it hurts, and no one wants that discomfort.

How to Enjoy House Cleaning

If you are a reluctant housekeeper, you might dread that list of chores you know is waiting for you. While hiring a maid service is really helpful at cutting down on that list, there will always be those household tasks you’ll have to do There’s got to be a way to make house cleaning just a little less boring, right?

Here’s a few ideas for making the time you spend cleaning a little more enjoyable:

Mix the things you hate to do with the things you like to do. There’s always that one chore or two you absolutely can’t stand, but there’s probably a few you like, too. Folding laundry and sweeping are tasks I don’t mind, but dusting and vacuuming stinks!

It’s a natural tendency to put off the things you don’t like to do, but then you just end up with a bunch of chores you hate to do, and you might not get everything finished. Instead, stick something you like to do between a few of the tasks you’d rather skip.

House Cleaning Manassas

A made bed pulls an entire bedroom together, bringing the attention right where you want it to be. Depending on how you want your bedroom to look and feel, there are some great tips for making your bed look as beautiful as it is comfortable.

The best maid services make the bed for you while cleaning, but how can you keep that fresh look all the time? Here are some ideas!

>> Pull the fitted sheet tight. Are you a toss-and-turner, or do you sleep with one? If you do, this is especially important for you. When you put your fitted sheet on, make sure you pull those corners down tight and tuck them under the mattress.

Small Steps to Keeping Your Bathroom Clean

BathroomYour bathroom might be one of the most used rooms in your home, but is probably also the one hardest to keep clean. With so many people and so many purposes for one room, keeping up with everything might seem overwhelming. Good cleaning services can clean and disinfect your bathroom, but there are some steps you can take to keep it looking great between cleanings.

When it comes to general housekeeping we all tend to overlook one area of our home--the closet. That is the space where we usually cram all the items we aren't sure about. Then we can never find what we are looking for and we think to ourselves "this closet is a disaster." You can transform all your closets into sleek, well organized areas. Before you start clearing each closet, set your mind on what you are using each one for like clothes and accessories, a linen closet, or extra storage space.
