We all love the feel and smell of a clean space. It creates a sense of well-being and the space tend to feel light and airy. If the space is big, it appears bigger; and if the space is small, it seems roomier.
A clean space is neater and more organized, which allows you to find items faster. Additionally, when a space is clean it tends to carry less germs, thus making it safe for everyone in it.
A clean space is enjoyable for as long as it remains that way, and most of us would like to extend the duration. Here are some easy tips you can use to keep your space clean, for longer.
Tidy Up After Yourself
Practice putting away dishes or other items right after you use them. Delaying this process usually cause tasks to accumulate and before you know it, your space is untidy or dirty.
Clean up spills and messes as soon as they occur, especially on carpets and rugs. Small spills can eventually ruin the appearance of your carpet, and end up difficult to remove later.
Not only is clutter unattractive, it’s unsafe for those around. People can slip and fall over small items on the ground, for example.
Practice to put away items that are not being used at the moment. This will keep your space tidy and more organised.
Getting small boxes or space organisers are good ways to keep your space decluttered. Some also come in a variety of attractive colours and designs that can complement any decor.
Dirt-Proof Your Space
Invest in fabrics and surfaces that are easy to clean or maintain. Hardwood floors are easier to clean than carpet, and tiles clean up faster than surfaces that tend to trap dirt. Some fabrics, such as jersey, attract lint and dirt like their lives depend on it, so you definitely want to avoid adding those to your decor. Opt for fabrics and surfaces that wipe clean with soap and water.
Invest in Good Cleansers
We all try to find ways to cut costs and save money where we can. However, it’s possible to be ‘penny wise and pound foolish’, as the saying goes.
We don’t recommend that you scrimp on your cleaning products, for the simple reason that mediocre products can leave your space less clean, they cause build-up over time, and they sometimes contain harsh chemicals that damage your belongings.
If your budget refuses to allow for good commercial cleansers, try making a home-made cleanser with vinegar and water. This solution can clean tiles and similar surfaces by killing germs and removing odour.
These easy tips are sure ways that you can maintain a clean space for longer. Do a light dusting once a week to freshen the space and remove any build-up. We also recommend that you get a professional clean every now and then, to remove stubborn stains and hard-to-reach debris.
