Declutter Home - Interiors Advice - Pikalily Blog

Maintaining a clean and tidy home is essential for a healthy and comfortable living environment. A cluttered and messy family home can be overwhelming, cause stress, and even negatively impact one’s mental health. On the other hand, a clean and organized home provides a sense of calm and can help improve overall well-being.

In this post, we will discuss some tips and tricks to help keep your home clean and tidy and also include some tips for maintaining a clean and sparkling pool.

Here are some tips for keeping your home clean and tidy:

1.   Establish a cleaning routine

Having a routine is vital to keeping a clean home. You can start by creating a weekly cleaning schedule that covers tasks like dusting, vacuuming, and mopping. You can also assign tasks to specific days of the week so that you remember to do them.

For example, you can dedicate Monday to dusting, Tuesday to vacuuming, and so on. By establishing a routine, you’ll find it easier to keep your home clean and tidy and avoid feeling overwhelmed by the amount of work needed.

2. Declutter regularly

Clutter can quickly accumulate and cause chaos in a home. To avoid this, make sure to declutter regularly. This can involve getting rid of items you no longer use or need, organizing your belongings, and putting things in their proper place.

By decluttering your home regularly, you’ll free up space, reduce stress, and make it easier to keep your home clean and tidy.

3. Clean as you go

Another way to keep your home clean and tidy is to clean as you go. This means taking care of messes and cleaning up spills and accidents as they happen rather than letting them sit and accumulate.

This approach is constructive in the kitchen, where spills and messes can quickly get out of hand. Cleaning up messes right away will save time and effort in the long run and keep your home looking its best.

4. Keep your pool clean (if you have one)

To keep your pool clean, it’s essential to establish a regular maintenance routine. This might include tasks like skimming the surface of the water to remove debris, vacuuming the pool to remove dirt and debris from the bottom, and checking and adjusting the chemical levels in the water.

Regularly performing these tasks will help keep your pool clean and healthy and avoid more serious problems. If you are unsure how to best maintain your pool clean, invest in pool cleaners.

5. Keep cleaning supplies close at hand

Cleaning supplies readily available make it easier to keep your home clean and tidy. Keep a basket of cleaning supplies in a convenient location, such as under the kitchen sink, so you can quickly grab what you need when it’s time to clean.

This way, you won’t waste time searching for supplies when needed, and you’ll be more likely to clean up messes as soon as they happen.

6. Make use of storage solutions

Proper storage solutions can help keep your home organized and reduce clutter. Consider investing in storage containers, baskets, and shelves to help keep your belongings tidy and organized.

Using these storage solutions, you’ll have a place for everything and be able to quickly and easily put things away when you’re finished.
