Are you keen about decorating your home? It’s great if you are, but decoration remains incomplete without cleanliness.
That’s right, guys. It does not matter how well decorated your house is, it’s not going to look appealing if your house isn’t clean. Not to mention, an unclean environment is also bad for your hygiene.
To help you fix this issue, here I have compiled a list of some effective hygiene tips to maintain cleanliness at your home. Have a look:
Declutter Your Space
The first step is to declutter your space. It is especially important if you have little kids at home as they’re a pro at making a mess. They keep throwing their toys here and there and at the end of the day, your house looks no less than a fish market.
If that’s the case, decluttering is the key. I know resetting the toys won’t help permanently as they’ll throw them again the next day. Hence, you need to keep the toys and other things that clutter your house in a confined space.
Regular vacuum cleaning is crucial if you want to ensure optimum cleanliness. People often make the mistake of skipping a day or two as they believe it won’t make a difference when in reality, it does.
Dirt is one of the most stubborn things ever. Do you ever come across those sticky pale patches on the floor, the walls, or the countertops? They are a result of the dirt and grease that’s left for a day or two.
Hence, regular vacuuming is a must. It goes for everything, from floors to the walls, ceilings, furniture, shelves, and cupboards. For this, I suggest you get yourself a dual-functioned vacuum cleaner to vacuum and mop at the same time.
Check the Ducts and Air Vents
The ducts and air vents are always at work and it’s mainly the reason they collect most of the dirt that comes into your house. Regardless of that, whenever cleaning the house, two things most people forget are air vents and ducts.
The collection of dirt in the air vents and ducts not only affect their functioning but also disturbs the ventilation in your house. If you want to avoid suffocation and humidity, you must check the ducts and air vents in your house every week.
Empty the Bins
Dustbins are home to various bugs and rodents. They are probably the most unhygienic in every household. Thus, they need to be emptied everyday. Whether they’re half full, please make sure to empty them.
Also, ask your helper to wash the dustbin whenever s/he empties it. It’s a mandatory step that people often miss. Lots of bacteria and pathogens are present in the dustbins and emptying it won’t affect them. Therefore, washing the dustbin is essential here.
Keep the Bugs Away
As I mentioned earlier, bugs and rodents are often attracted to garbage bins, but that’s not all. They make home in your house for plenty of other reasons, too. If you don’t mop regularly, it will attract bugs and rodents, too.
What makes the story sob is the fact that once a bug or rodent comes into your house, it’s very difficult to get rid of it. It holds especially true for the flying insects. Hence, you need to ensure that you get the pesticides sprayed in your house every month.
Animals like insects and mice bring along a number of zoonotic diseases with them. Sometimes, these diseases can be life threatening; therefore, it isn’t something that you can take lightly.
Clean Your Bathrooms
Your bathroom is an extremely dangerous place when it comes to catching an infection. Why? Because they remain unclean even after you clean them. However, it doesn’t mean that you can skip a day or two for cleaning the bathroom.
In fact, it’s an area that requires regular deep cleaning. That’s true, guys. If it takes you 10 minutes to clean your bedroom, you must take out 20 minutes everyday to clean the bathroom. Yes, double the time!
The idea is to ensure optimum cleanliness and great hygiene. And whenever one speaks of hygiene, the bathroom is something that cannot be neglected. From the countertop to the loo and shower cubicle, everything needs to be cleaned separately using high-quality antibacterial cleaning products.
Keep it Pleasant
Last but not least, you must ensure to create a pleasant environment. Once you’re done with all the steps mentioned above, you can move towards working on the ambiance. One thing that’s most important when speaking of ambiance is the scent of your home.
In order to make your house smell pleasant, I would recommend investing in high-grade air-freshening products. Remember to spray your house twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening. It will make your house more welcoming and comfortable.
The Final Word…
Cleaning your house and maintaining good hygiene are two things of utmost importance. First, it’s great for your health and secondly, it helps the house speak for itself. A clean house is certainly more welcoming and attractive compared to places that are cluttered and have a pungent odor. The reality is nobody wants to visit such places.
Follow the tips and tricks mentioned above to ensure that your house remains clean and hygienically safe and please don’t forget to invest in high-quality cleaning products. I wish you all the best, my friends! Have a wonderful day ahead.
