Now we don’t want this to become just another goal that is never achieved. That is why there are a few ways you can improve the cleanliness of your home in addition to hiring a professional cleaning service. The key to achieving all goals is to break it down into steps that are realistic. When you can take it step-by-step, then the goal seems more achievable and you are less likely to feel overwhelmed. Here are a few tips that can help you maintain a clean environment.

Slow and Steady

If you have a large space to tackle, the best thing to do is finish one task at a time. Even if you have hired professional cleaners, you can develop habits that will help you maintain a clean space during the in between. You can identify one thing at a time, such as unloading the dishwasher or doing the laundry, and complete that in a day. The next day, you can perform the same task if needed or move on to another. As long as you are trying to clean one area per day, then the task will feel less like a burden and more like a habit.

Don’t Become a Hoarder

As someone who takes anything and everything that is free, I have learned that before just taking something I should consider whether it will be useful to me or not. If you want to keep organized, sometimes you just have to say no. Try not to keep things unless you need them. You can also start to toss items you have been holding on to that are broken or you no longer use.

Start with What You See

If you do not know where to start, then the easiest thing is to start with what you see. For example, if you’ve been tripping over the shoes in the doorway, then put them back in your closet. If there are dirty dishes in the sink, clean them before organizing the rest of your cabinets. By starting with the most apparent messes, you will be able to see your progress. Coming across an empty sink will motivate you to continue your path to a cleaner space.

Find the Time

One of the biggest excuses for not accomplishing your goals is that you simply have no time. At least, you don’t think that you do. This is especially true when it comes to cleaning, as it typically gets put on the back-burner as people just accept the mess around them. The truth is that you will never just have the time, you have to make it. Luckily, you can adjust the amount of time you decide to clean so it does not need to impact your entire routine. If you take five minutes to put your clothes away, then at least you will have finished something. Focusing on smaller things and utilizing shorter amounts of time will help you achieve larger goals as time goes on.

So let’s get 2017 off to a clean start!

In addition to the small things you can do to keep your space clean, you can hire professional cleaning services to help you keep your resolution. Involving other people with the same goal will help to keep you accountable. Also, if you do happen to fall behind on cleaning, they are always there to give you a fresh start!
