From sand to pets and everything in between, keeping your home clean in the summer may seem like an impossible task. Especially when kids and other family members are home more often, or if you feel like you have an endless stream of house guests. Our tips for keeping your home clean in the summer will keep you sane and enjoying the warm months, too.
4 Summer Cleaning Tips
- Start from the bottom and work your way up. Dust, dirt, debris, sand and general yuckiness will succumb to gravity and find their way onto your floor. So when in doubt or when you have limited time but feel you need to do something, concentrate on the floor. Sweep, vacuum and mop to keep the dirt manageable.
- Focus on the bathroom. The time spent in this room may go up with post-beach and sports showers and the natural moisture boosting humidity. Always use the vent fan and crack a window if you have one in the bathroom. This is the perfect time for mold to grow and it doesn’t take long. Regular cleanings will help you keep an eye out.
- Little things can make a big difference. Like a few minutes of dusting a day can add up to your entire home dusted by the end of the week. Or picking up toys at the end of the night can make a clean start to the next morning. Trying to pick up after yourself and your family will make spaces seem bigger and cleaner. And make the bed! A made up bed automatically makes a bedroom look tidier and more put together.
- Create your own space. Create a space that is like your time out, and the space that you strive to always keep clean and clutter-free. When things feel like they are piling up, retreat here and feel like at least one area is clean and taken care of!
