If keeping a tidy home during the summer seems like an impossible task, rest assured knowing it doesn't have to be hard. Use these tips to keep your home clean this season.



Tips for a Clean Home This Summer Break

With the kids home all summer, it may seem impossible to expect to have a clean home. Luckily, keeping a clean home during the summer doesn't have to be hard. There are simple changes you can make to your schedule to ensure your home stays spotless. Check out these tips from Fairbanks Cleanpro to keep your home looking its best.

Keep a Cleaning Schedule

A cleaning schedule is a great tool that can help you keep track of all the cleaning you have to do while also helping you divide it among the time you have reserved for cleaning daily, weekly, and even monthly. If you don't have one already, now is the perfect time to create a schedule you can follow easily. If you already have one, you may notice that seasonal changes, such as the kids being home for summer break, can cause issues for your schedule. Instead of giving up on a cleaning schedule altogether, adapt it to the season for an easier time.

Involve the Entire Family

Although having the kids home for summer can mean more opportunities for a messy home, it also means more hands that can help out around the house. Create a chore chart for your children that will make it easy for them to remember their responsibilities. Each child should have daily chores they can take care of, such as making their bed, tidying their room, and picking up their toys after playtime. They can also have rotating chores, such as washing the dishes, doing laundry, and taking out the trash. Although these are small things, they will certainly help lighten your load.

Keep the Outdoors, Outdoors

If your children love to spend time outdoors, this is great! Just be sure they keep the outdoors where they belong, outdoors. Otherwise, they may be dragging in dirt, mud, and other elements that can cause damage to your carpets and upholstery. Teach them to clean their shoes off using the mats you have at your entryways. Take this one step further and prove them with indoor shoes they can change into before stepping on your carpet. Provide them with a changing area in the entryway to make this easier and less of a chore. If you have a pet that likes to play outdoors with them, teach your children to clean off the pet's paws and coat before it rolls around your carpet. Get your carpets professionally cleaned this summer for an even cleaner home.

Organize Big Cleaning Days

If you don't have a lot of time that you can dedicate to cleaning during the week, reserve some time every weekend that you and your family can dedicate to getting the house spotless. Turn this into a fun, weekly event you can all do together. Play some music, take snack breaks together, and find ways to make it more fun. You can work together on one room at a time or split up and each take care of a separate space. Place a checklist on the fridge where you can all check off items as you go.

Get out of the House

Spending time at the local park, the neighborhood pool, or at museums means your home will have a better chance of staying clean. Since no one will be home, there will be no one making a mess indoors. Not only will your home be cleaner, you will also be spending quality time with your kids and taking advantage of the great summer weather.

Make Time to Declutter

If you're out of closet space in your home, chances are you've accumulated tons of stuff over the years that you don't need and can get rid of. Instead of just stuffing more things in your closet and hoping the doors still close, set aside a day to declutter the closets, drawers, and cabinets in your home. Take everything out and make piles of the things you still need, those that can be donated, and those that can be tossed out. Be honest as you do this. There are probably things you didn't even know you still had and didn't miss, which means you won't miss them if you donate them.
