Moving can seem like an endless process but once you get everything out of their boxes and into place, the feeling is glorious. There is nothing more satisfying than having a new space that is neat and organized after a big residential move. Augusta Movers has a few tips to help you keep your home in order well after your relocation.
Take it Slow
Not everyone is naturally organized and for many the organizing process takes some effort. Instead of getting stressed trying to make your home look like a magazine in one day, start off small. Make a habit of washing dishes after every meal or doing your laundry on a schedule. You can even set a day for deep cleaning to help keep your space in pristine condition.
Leave the Mess at the Door
Your shoes are one of the most common ways to track dirt and debris into your home. Over time this can leave your space soiled and unsightly. Instead, make a habit of taking your shoes off right inside your door and storing them out of sight.
Ditch the Clutter
Clutter is the way of life for most people in the developed world but it doesn’t have to be. Instead of buying every new item that hits the market, check your current stash to see if you already have something that will handle the same job. You should also declutter your home seasonally to get rid of things that you no longer need or use.
Start the Day Right
Once you get up and get yourself ready for the day, you should take a few moments to tidy your bedroom. Making your beds and organizing your bedroom space will leave you a fresh room to come home to after a long day at work.
Fresh Air, Fresh Mind
Cleaning your home helps to remove bacteria and grime, but you should also pay attention to indoor pollution as well. Chemicals from cleaning solvents, dust, and allergens can trigger allergies and invite sickness. Take time to open your windows to allow in fresh air and sunlight daily. Indoor plants and air purifiers are another way to help keep the air in your home fresh and clean all year long.
Deep Cleaning & Washing
You should always wipe down your surfaces at least once a week, but most people forget about fabrics. Rugs, pillow covers, blankets, and carpets also need to be cleaned on a routine basis. Remove washable items and have them laundered at least once every two weeks. Your rugs and carpets should be vacuumed at least once every three days. A seasonal or bi-annual professional deep cleaning is a good idea for rugs, carpets, and other upholstery.
Clean Cooking Space
One of the most straightforward ways to keep your kitchen in order is to put things away directly after use. This will cut down on clutter and keep your kitchen clean at the same time. If needed, as more storage if you find yourself lacking space.
