How To Keep Your Home Spotless Between Visits From Your Cleaner

It’s all well and good having a spotlessly clean home on those days when your cleaning company visits, but what about the days in between? While the obvious solution would be to hire a cleaner to come every day of the year, the average homeowner can’t afford to do that. 

Fortunately, there are a few simple and quick ways to help keep that clean and tidy home-feel, every day of the year, and here are some of them:

Start by prioritizing a daily cleaning routine

You won’t need to do much between visits from your cleaner, but you will need to do something, and it’s best to try and do these simple tasks every day for the best effects:

  • Sweep or vacuum high traffic areas
  • Wipe down all frequently touched surfaces
  • Wipe the sink and clean the toilet 
  • De-clutter before bedtime

Just by keeping on top of smaller cleaning tasks, you can hang on to that ‘just-cleaned’ home feel, for longer.

Use the right tools for the right jobs

By using products that professional cleaners use, such as those listed below, you can minimize your cleaning efforts while getting the job done well:

  • Microfiber cloths

Great at trapping dust and dirt particles, these cloths prevent you from spreading grime around as you clean, and can be used on a variety of surfaces

  • Robot vacuum

Highly popular nowadays and highly effective, these smart little robotic vacuums can trundle their way around your home, picking up dirt and dust, without you having to lift a finger; program it to clean as little or as often as you like

  • Steam cleaner

These are fantastic for sanitizing and deeply cleaning a range of surfaces, from upholstery to floors and countertops, and what’s even better is that they require no use of harsh or toxic chemicals

  • HEP filter air purifier

Help keep the air inside your home pure and a pleasure to breathe, with a purifier to catch particles of dust and allergens

Keep clutter to a minimum

As well as making cleaning your home more time consuming (for you and your cleaning service), clutter gathers dust and looks unsightly. With a little effort, you can declutter for a tidier, cleaner home using these tips:

  • Declutter one room at a time

Don’t overwhelm yourself if your home has a lot of clutter; go through each room of your home slowly, one by one. 

  • Give everything a home

For all of the items you want to keep, try to ensure that they each have a proper place to go; bins and baskets are great for this, and are easy for kids to use, too.

  • Assess on a monthly basis

Devote a few minutes every month to assessing your belongings and getting rid of items you no longer want or need.

Set up zones for cleaning

By organizing your cleaning tasks, you can tackle them in a more efficient manner. For example, you could 

Set Up Cleaning Zones

Organizing your cleaning tasks into zones can make the process more efficient and manageable. Depending on how much cleaning is required, you can dedicate 20 minutes to a different room of your home every day. If minimal cleaning is required, you may be able to zip through your entire home in half an hour and get it all clean and tidy. 

Ultimately, cleaning services exist to get your home clean and tidy and make your life easier, so if they’re good at what they do and you hire them to come and clean often enough, you shouldn’t find yourself needing to do too much housework in between their visits.
