Something about a fresh and clean space makes hanging out there more fun. Your mind can focus on the company at hand instead of getting distracted by some icky smell or the sight of clutter.
As summer approaches, perhaps you can use some helpful tips to keep your home fresh and cleaner.
Professional Pest Control
Nothing will ruin your home’s sense of order and cleanliness in quite the way a pest infestation does. You can Google pest control near me and hope to stumble upon a great company, but there are a few signs that separate one exterminator from another.
The leading pest control experts use very strong chemicals that kill pests ruthlessly, but they’ll always be friendly to pets and the environment. Don’t use a pest control company unless they use chemicals approved by Health Canada.
Local, family-owned businesses tend to have the friendliest technicians because everyone in the company works together, and these close, friendly personal relationships often trickle down to the customer. They also offer Home Protection Plans so you can proactively prevent a pest infestation from occurring rather than end one swiftly after they’ve already breached the gates.
Fresh Air Matters
A room with fresh air feels cleaner than one without it. You don’t want the odour of musty, stale garbage, so take out recyclables, trash, and compost regularly.
If it’s nice outside, open some windows and the breeze in! You can also choose an aroma for your space by using candles, potpourri, a diffuser, or even incense.
When cooking, especially if you’re grilling meat on the stovetop, be sure to use your range hood vent and open every window.
Maintain Habits and Structure While Storing
It’s not a bad idea to get in the habit of always storing things in the same place. It will make your home feel organized when you know where things are and make it feel cleaner.
For example, keep your keys on a hook or a dish by the door. Install a rod from which to hang pots and pans. Keep your remotes on the same part of the table. Your home will feel cleaner and more orderly when you don’t have to think about where things are.
The Occasional Deep Clean
There’s a difference between caressing your floors with a Swiffer and moving the couch away from the wall to get at the dust trapped behind it. Cleaning the dust trapped in hidden recesses of the room or deep in your couch’s fabric is an excellent way to make the room feel warmer and more welcoming.
You and your guests will probably sneeze less and breathe easier with fewer allergens in the room.
Cleaning your home is all about enjoying where you live and promoting good health. There’s a relationship between the nature of your surroundings and how you feel day to day, so keep these tips in mind, and your home will provide more joy for you, your family and your friends.As an Amazon Associate, Icy Canada earns from qualifying purchases.
