How to Maintain a Clean Home

  • Maintaining a clean home is often easier said than done. Our daily lives are hectic enough without worrying when you will regularly clean your home. We at 1st Choice Storage gathered some tips to help you in maintaining a clean home so you aren’t left with a huge mess to clean up at the end of the week.
  • Clean Throughout the Day
  • The best way to maintain a clean home is by cleaning as you are going about your normal routine. If you get into the habit of immediately putting things back where they belong after you use them, then you save yourself the time and effort of having to clean it up later. For the chores that you don’t often get to, set aside 15 minutes a day to clean a specific area of the house. This way you aren’t overwhelmed with the amount that needs to be cleaned.
  • Never End your Day with a Dirty Kitchen
  • The one room in your house that can easily get out of control is your kitchen. With the amount of meals you need to prepare and cook in your kitchen on a daily basis you are bound to create some clutter. Use the “clean as you go method” to stay on top of your mess. Always start your day with an empty dishwasher so you can fill it as you use dishes throughout the day. When you are preparing to go to bed, empty out the sink and start the dishwasher. You can wipe down counters and sweep the floor while you cook to save time.
  • Designate a “To Storage” Box
  • While you are cleaning your home take note of the items you use most often. Are there items being stored in your various cupboards and drawers that aren’t being used? Place these items in a “to storage” box that you can keep in your closet or garage. When the box is full you can pack up the items and send them to your storage unit at 1st Choice Storage in Miami. This will open up the storage space you need in your home that will help you in keeping it clean and organized.  
  • The more organized your home is and free of the items you just don’t use every day, the easier it will be to maintain a clean home. You can rest easy knowing your items are safe in your storage unit at 1st Choice Storage in Miami. Call us today to learn more about our facility.
