Maintain the no-shoe rule

If you want to avoid bringing dirt from outdoors, one crucial practice is to establish and enforce a no-shoe rule at home. Almost every household has this in place, but it’s getting enlisted for those who are unaware of its significance in keeping your house clean. As a tip, keep a shoe rack by the front door where you keep your shoes when you get back from town. If you find it difficult to go barefooted, always maintain a separate clean slipper just for inside-house use and avoid using it in the restrooms. 

Wipe off your counters and tables after each meal

Aside from cleaning the dishes and cutlery, you should remember to wipe down the tables and countertops. This way, you can feel tidier all the time. It is also essential you disinfect your countertops and tables on a regular basis,so feel free to consider this.

Practice regular dishwashing, and sink cleaning

Try not to leave your dishes to be washed the next day. It is not a pleasant way to begin the day if you have to handle the mess that you left overnight. It is also advisable to keep utensils inside the cabinet when it is dry to avoid damage and germ growth. So make it a priority to wash your cooking utensils immediately after cooking and put them away. In addition, your kitchen sink is where you wash your dishes and clean up spills. However, how frequently do you clean this area? Kitchen sinks should be washed on a regular basis since studies show that they harbour more germs than toilet sinks.

Clean your hot tub regularly

Your hot tub is another area that needs constant cleaning and maintenance. To avoid complications like skin rashes and other skin infections, make it a priority to get it cleaned and water chemicals checked regularly. It is advised you contact hot tub maintenance service experts to perform this task for you. 

Create a weekly and monthly cleaning schedule

Make a cleaning schedule and split the tasks you will need to undertake weekly and monthly. If you maintain a regular cleaning timetable, you will not need to perform deep cleaning. This is also beneficial for individuals who have housekeepers. They can complete the task using this technique. For a weekly timetable, they can dust, organize and arrange one room at a time, pay special attention to bathrooms, hot tubs, kitchen and so on. For a monthly calendar, they can check all appliances and furniture, wash carpets, wipe down walls and so on.
