When you are trying to make your home appeal more or you want to keep your sense of sanity when the children are running around, it's so easy for them to undo your handiwork, especially when it comes to keeping the property clean! You might spend a lot of time dusting and vacuuming, but if you are trying to make your home free from mud and dirt, here are a few things you should consider.
Leave Your Shoes at the Door
It sounds obvious, but this simple rule will keep a lot of dirt from being dragged into your hallway. To make things easier in terms of cleaning, the hallway should be made of tiles. There are some great suppliers like Tilemall that offer very stylish tiles. When mud gets beyond a doormat, tiles are easier to clean, and what's more, they add a lot more in terms of aesthetics.
Clean Your Vents
When your heater or air conditioning comes on, the dust that settles on the vents can get blown into the air and distributed around the home. Cleaning your vents on a regular basis, by either having an HVAC contractor clean them or changing the air filters on a regular basis can make sure they run efficiently, but will also trap air particles before they get blown around the home.
The Benefits of a Doormat
While a doormat is fantastic on the inside, you really need to have one outside as well. What's more, you need to make sure that they are on the outside of every entrance to your home. But you also need to make sure that they are clean. Doormats are one of those things that we continue to neglect, so vacuuming on both sides of the door actually ensures that you are doing your best to keep dirt away from the home.
Think About How Often You Leave Your Windows Open
So many of us like to get the windows open so fresh air can come in, which is fantastic, but if you are in an area with numerous particles like pollen or even if you live in an urban area you've got to think about these little issues that can create dirt. One of the best things for you to do is to look at the windows of your property. If you can see a slight layer of dirt or you have to clean them regularly, this is a sure-fire sign that you will have a lot of problems when it comes to dirt within the home.
Run the Kitchen Fan
If you like to fry food, running the kitchen exhaust fan will trap grease particles and stop them from being deposited on surfaces.
It is a big pain when we're doing our best to keep mud and dirt away from our homes. While there are many benefits of having a bit of mud and dirt in your life, especially to your immune system, if you really fed up with dirt being brought in all of the time, there are some great things you can do.
