Keep Your Home Clean With These 5 Effective Strategies

The following contribution is from another author.

The home is often the space you spend most of your time in. So naturally, it’s essential to keep it clean and tidy, but sometimes this can be a difficult task. Luckily, many different strategies will help you maintain high hygiene standards and make your house cleaner than ever before!

Rid Your House of Pests

Pests are a nuisance and can also spread disease. Some of the most common pests in homes include ants, cockroaches, mites, and rodents such as mice or rats.

First off, get rid of any food sources for these pesky critters by storing your food properly in airtight containers. Keep all surfaces clean to prevent nesting insects from encountering crumbs that may be left behind on tabletops or countertops after cleaning up a meal. You should also seal cracks where they could find their way inside (and potentially create nests) and keep clutter at bay, so there is no place for them to hide out when not looking for food/water sources from you! Do this regularly, so it becomes a habit.

When looking for ways to prevent insects like ants or cockroaches from entering your home, remember that they get attracted by foods (sweets/grease) and water. So, make sure you put away all of these after cooking in airtight containers, cleaning spills, and fix any leaky taps immediately. Try out natural remedies like vinegar & bicarbonate soda mixtures to deter pests instead of using chemical pesticides, which may also repel other animals (such as pets). If there is an infestation already – get pest control service ASAP before the problem gets worse!

Declutter Periodically

Decluttering means removing items you don’t need or use. You can declutter periodically by removing clutter at least once per year, but the more often you do it, the better. Also, make sure to go through your stuff after moving into a new home or apartment and when preparing for spring cleaning.

You can declutter by selling items you don’t want, donating them to charity, or just putting the important things to you into storage. Put aside a specific time each day for decluttering, so it doesn’t feel like an overwhelming task.

Every two weeks, clean your home from top to bottom and even do some deep cleaning in places where dirt is most likely accumulated, such as bathrooms and kitchens. Prioritize areas of your house based on how often you use them; move through rooms in order from most-used to least-used. This way, when it’s time for spring cleaning, everything will be nice and fresh!

Clean Your House Daily With a Thorough Clean at Least Biweekly

Cleaning your house daily is the best way to maintain high hygiene standards. It would help if you used a thorough clean at least every two weeks for deep cleaning.

When you do this, ensure that you clean all surfaces thoroughly with disinfectants or other fluids, and pay extra attention to things like sinks and door handles where germs can collect easily. A good analogy is washing your hands after using public transport; it’s not enough to wipe them on your shirt!

Use Experts To Clean the Hard-To-Reach Areas

You can also hire a maid service to clean your windows, cobwebs in the attic, and other hard-to-reach spaces. With their expertise, you don’t have to worry about missing any spots or causing damage while reaching these difficult areas yourself.


In conclusion, there are many ways to keep your home clean and maintain good hygiene standards. Keep the clutter away, clean daily with a thorough clean at least biweekly, rid yourself of pests, and use experts when you need help with hard-to-reach areas. With these strategies in place, you can feel confident that your house is always ready for guests and family members alike!
