While your house might look really good to those who visit you, maybe you realize that the real picture is that the house needs a thorough cleaning. After all, it's easy to put things out of sight in closets and laundry hampers and then just give the house a lick-and-a-promise, isn't it? Are you looking for ideas of how to get your house clean from top to bottom? If so, from making an organized cleaning and organizing plan to arranging for carpet cleaning service, here are some ideas that might help you.
Make An Organizing And Cleaning Plan
Start with the organization part of your plan. That means going through all of the closets and drawers in each room and getting rid of things you no longer want or need. Think of approaching your organization project in a room-to-room fashion. For instance, start with the bedrooms, and get rid of clothes you no longer wear. If your children are old enough to help, get them to do the same thing. When you get to the kitchen, don't forget to throw out things in the pantry and in the refrigerator that you know you won't use in preparing meals. In your family room, go through board games and puzzles that haven't been used in a very long time.
After you've gone through the house to organize each room, the next step is to clean each room thoroughly. Get your cleaning supplies ready ahead of time so you'll have everything you need. Then make a plan. For example, one day could be for the bedroom areas, another day could be for the living areas, and the third day might be saved for cleaning the kitchen and the utility room.
Arrange For Carpet Cleaning Services
Save the carpets for your last cleaning chore. After all, you don't want to dirty them while dusting and mopping after they've been cleaned, right? Think of arranging for professionals to do the carpet cleaning. By doing that, workers who have the training and the experience to deep-clean the carpets will make them look like new. Also, they'll use products that won't harm pets or children. The cleaning products will also be environment friendly.
When you arrange for the workers to clean your carpets, be very specific about when you want them to do the job. For example, if you are having a special event at your house in the early evening, you'll want the carpet cleaners to do the job in the morning hours, won't you? That will give the carpets several hours to dry. Having the carpets cleaned the day before your planned event might even be a better idea.
Consider making a plan for the carpet cleaners to return to your house periodically, say every three months. You could also schedule your big house cleaning projects at that time. That will mean that the clean house will be maintained throughout the year.
