4 Tips for Maintaining a Clean Home, Tuscarora, Maryland

Professional maid services save time and hassle, allowing you to enjoy a clean and healthy home without spending hours scrubbing and dusting. When you’re in between appointments, you may notice that dust and grime accumulate in some places. There are some habits you can maintain to keep your home clean as you wait for the experts. To help you keep your house spotless, here are some ways to prevent excessive dirt buildup.

How to Clean Your Home in Between Maid Service Visits

1. Sort the Mail

Papers and documents tend to attract dust. To prevent this and stay organized, place small baskets in your foyer to deal with your mail so it doesn’t pile up on tables and chairs. Label one basket as “Junk Mail” and another as “Important Mail” so you can quickly distinguish bills from store discounts you may not need.

2. Wipe Down the Kitchen After Use

To prevent accumulation, wipe your countertops, stove range, and sink after cooking. Use a mixture of equal parts of white vinegar and water to remove grime and smells. Wiping down your kitchen regularly also eliminates crumbs that attract pests.

3. Prevent Pet Shedding

Prevent pet fur and hair from coating rugs, carpets, upholstery, and bedding by using the brush attachment on your vacuum. You should also wash blankets, throws, and sheets weekly to remove human and animal dead skin cells that accumulate in these. Brush your pets every day to detangle their coat, which will reduce shedding.

4. Keep the Bathroom Fresh

Bathrooms can become dirty with only a few uses. To prevent virus-causing bacteria from accumulating, keep a spray bottle with a vinegar-water mixture in the room. You can use this to wipe your vanity, tiled floors, and toilet. Not only will this help you avoid the common cold, but it will also ensure your bathroom always smells fresh.
