As we ease into the weekend following the Fourth of July festivities, it’s time to think about the ways that we can maintain an organized home throughout the summer. This can be difficult to achieve as we head off to summer vacations and various seasonal events. You can always call a professional cleaning service like Misty Clean to help you keep your home sparkling. In the meantime, get your house in order with these five housecleaning tasks!
Clear it Out
If you have young children, a great way to encourage them to clean is to hold a garage sale! Garage sales give you the opportunity to clear your home of unwanted clutter, and it’s also a great chance to teach your kids about the nuances of commerce. If you don’t want to hold a garage sale, consider donating your unwanted items to the Goodwill or a local charity.
After a garage sale or large donation, it’s a good idea to reorganize everything that’s still left. In regards to toys, try to keep them all in one large bin to maximize organization and efficiency. It will also make the cleanup process much easier for your kids!
Experts recommend dusting once a month, at minimum, so now is a good time to get that task out of the way. Use a duster or microfiber towel to clean mirrors, artwork, bookshelves, lighting fixtures, and more!
Whether you have a deck, patio, or back porch, remember to clean it at least once a month. Outdoor furniture needs to be maintained to prevent mold and mildew. Pavers, composite decking, and wood decking should be swept. If your Fourth of July guests spilled a beverage on your deck or patio, scrub the stain out with soap and water.
Do your part in maintaining an eco-friendly household and save energy whenever possible. If you leave for the day (or vacation) set your air conditioning to a higher temperature. Run your ceiling fans all day to improve airflow and reduce air conditioning use.
