Easy Ways to Keep Your Home Neat and Tidy

August 3, 2017

Cleaning is definitely not everyone’s cup of tea! However, living in a messy home can cause unnecessary anxiety. Here are some low-stress cleaning steps from Fresh Tech Maid, house cleaning Arlington Heights, that you can take throughout the week to ensure that you keep your home neat, and that it stays fresh and clean every day. One of the keys to being motivated for cleaning is to spread the work out over the whole week, and not consolidate it all to Sunday afternoon! Below are seven chores from your Arlington Heights maid service (one for each day of the week!) that you can do to keep your home neat and tidy.


The start of the week is the best time for laundry duty! Laundry is really a never-ending chore, and it can seem like an overwhelming task if you have a full house. Instead of doing a load of laundry every day, try doing several loads on Monday morning! This is a great way to start the week off fresh, and it can be nice to relax and get into a cycle routine for the day. While the clothes are washing or drying, take time to go through the mail, organize a desk drawer, or clean out a closet!   


Make Tuesdays your dusting day! Many people like to concentrate on one room at a time when they are cleaning, but it can actually be easier to conquer the entire house on a task-by-task basis. Go through your home and dust all of the surfaces every Tuesday and you will truly feel accomplished!


After dusting comes the floor cleaning. This task is a bit more arduous which makes it good for the middle of the week, which is why we are suggesting Wednesday. You may want to break up this chore over a two-day period, so Wednesday could be reserved just for vacuuming.


If Wednesday is for vacuuming, than Thursday is for mopping! Conquer all of your wet-floor surfaces on Thursdays like the kitchen and bathrooms. You’ll feel so much better when your floors are vacuumed and mopped.


If you have pets in the house, you know that they need a lot of attention! Besides the daily feeding and walking, most pets need to be kept clean just like people do. If you get your pet professionally groomed, you could schedule these appointments for Fridays. Otherwise, take your Friday to give your pet a bath, a good brushing, a run at the park, or cage cleaning.


The weekend is the best time to run all of your errands. If you’re like most people, you don’t have to work and your family is home to help you! This could include errands like going to the post office, the bank, or picking up some household items you have been putting off. It’s also a good day to purchase whatever cleaning supplies you might need for the week ahead.   


Sunday is an excellent day for meal prep! This includes grocery shopping for the week, as well as planning out the meals you want to make during the upcoming week in advance. Some people even cook on Sundays and prepare their meals for the entire week! There’s nothing better than opening the freezer and seeing plenty of meals that simply need to be defrosted!

We hope that these tips from Fresh Tech Maid, house cleaning services Arlington Heights, will help you keep your home neat and tidy during the week without getting overwhelmed!
