3 Easy Tasks To Maintain That Freshly Cleaned Look In Your Home Until Your Next Cleaning Service Appointment

If you're a homeowner who has cleaning services visit on a regular (but not daily) basis, you're all too familiar with the slow creep of dust and mess that seems to take over your home in the days in between cleaning service visits. But you don't have to live with that new dust, nor do you have to give your home a full cleaning every day to keep that freshly cleaned look. Here are three daily tasks that will help keep your home looking good until the next time the cleaners come over.

Quick Dusting and Vacuuming

Dust, pet hair, pollen, and other similar substances are what really make your home look unclean even if everything is put away properly. Every day, take a few minutes and give surfaces a swipe with an antistatic cloth. You don't have to go for detail dusting -- just run the cloth over open surfaces like tables, TV tops, desks, and so on.

Also give the major traffic areas on the carpets a quick run-through with a vacuum cleaner. Again, you don't have to move furniture and vacuum in the corners -- just get the main open areas looking good. Not only will that pick up dust, but the tracks from the vacuum add to the impression that your home is spotless. If you leave the dusting for every once in a while instead of daily, you're going to have an ever-growing layer of dust over everything that will make dusting more of a chore.

Wipe Down the Kitchen Sink and Counters

Water droplets and errant food splatters can make an otherwise tidy kitchen look bad even if the droplets are minuscule. And if you have a stainless steel sink, scale from your water supply can also mar the kitchen's looks. At the end of each meal, quickly wipe down the sink and counter and ensure the dishes are put away. While these sound like chores everyone should already be doing, not everyone does them. Start doing them yourself, and you'll see how much better the kitchen looks.

Fold/Hang All Towels Neatly

After wiping things down and after bathing, be sure all towels -- hand, bath, dish, all of them -- are neatly folded and hung properly. Don't leave the towels stuffed behind the towel rack or wrinkled up, and try not to leave them so they're folded unevenly. You don't have to be distressingly precise, but make them look like they were new, clean towels just placed on the rack, which will help with the overall impression of cleanliness. If the towel is wet and you want to leave it fully unfolded to dry, ensure it's hung up neatly and evenly.

All together these tasks should take very little time. If you'd like more suggestions for how to keep that clean look, or if you'd rather increase the number of times a cleaning service comes by, contact the one you're using or others in the area.
