Taking care of your home to make sure it is clean, tidy, and free of clutter, can be a huge selling point while you are getting ready to move. In fact, a nice looking, clean, staged home actually sells 73% faster on average. Everyone wants to move into a home that has been kept in great condition, and keeping your home clean can help prove this point. If you aren’t moving any time in the near future, home organization also helps to reduce daily stress and increases relaxation by making life easier and more efficient.
Try out these tips below to help keep your home looking clean and organized:
1. Set Aside Time to Tidy Every Day Letting small tasks build up overtime eventually becomes a little overwhelming. When it gets to this stage, it’s hard to set so much time aside to get the job done properly. That’s why it is so important to stay on top of these small tasks. Spending the last 10 minutes of every day picking up toys and putting away dishes will help maintain cleanliness in the home. There’s nothing worse than going to bed knowing that the house is a disaster, and there’s nothing better than waking up to a fresh start. You can make this technique easier by getting the whole family involved.
2. Do a Weekly Deep Clean In addition, to a quick ‘tidy-up’ every day, sometimes the house requires a cleaning session that goes a little deeper. How often, and for how long you do a deep clean, is totally up to you. However, I recommend choosing a specific time each week so that this habit stays consistent. Spending one hour every Saturday morning works best for me. All you have to do is choose a room in the house, (or even a section of the room) to purge through items and clean the nooks and crannies. Keep items you use, and get rid of the things that you don’t use or need.
3. Utilize Wall and Ceiling Space The main reason homeowners sometimes struggle organizing their things is because they feel like they don’t have enough storage room. A simple solution for this problem is to put your wall and ceiling space to good use. Storing items in these areas will triple your storage space. It will take a little bit of extra time up front to set it all up, but it’s well worth it in the long run. A few hooks and racks can go a long way. These three tips are sure to make a big impact on your home organization routine. Not only does it show that you care for your home during times of resale, but it also helps build good habits.
