Summer is heating up on the East Coast, and so are the interiors of our homes. As you lower the air conditioning to combat the June heat, consider the small but important steps you can take to make summer cleaning so much easier. Discover four ways to maintain a tidy home all season long!
Enforcing a “shoes off” policy at home is a no-brainer when it rains, but this simple step can save you hours of vacuuming and scrubbing. The weather is nice, which means your family is going to spend it outdoors in the grass, dirt, and sand. Whether you live with one partner or several young children, footprints can quickly wreak havoc on carpets and floors. Designate an area for shoes, and enforce this rule throughout the summer.
Leftover spaghetti and old banana peels are much more pungent in the warmer months. Even if you have the air conditioning cranked down to 60 degrees, the summer sun can quickly spoil food in the trash. Rather than taking the trash out once a week, make a habit of taking it out twice a week. Taking out the trash more than normal can reduce smells in the kitchen and create a more enjoyable living experience.
Thanks to the sun, dust is more noticeable during the summertime. Some areas may have gone unnoticed during the winter, which means it’s time to dust them now. Pick a day when your home is filled with natural light, and tackle your home from the top down. Finish the job by vacuuming the carpets and floors.
The air conditioning might feel nice, but it’s important to open the windows once in awhile to ventilate your home. This is especially important in the bathroom, where mold and mildew can easily grow. If you don’t have a window in your bathroom, ensure that the room is properly and professionally ventilated.
