How to keep your home clean (for working moms)

Let’s face it; a clean home is a happy home. Unfortunately, finding the time for cleaning duties isn’t always easy when you’re already juggling a career, parenting, and other life commitments.

Nonetheless, with a dedicated plan of action that is tailored to working moms by your side, it is possible to stay on top of the situation.

Incorporate the following tips and strategies into your cleaning activities, and you won’t go far wrong.

#1. Focus On Prevention

Prevention is the best form of protection for your property, not least when thinking about the prospect of keeping it clean.

Insisting on a few simple house rules can make all the difference, starting with the idea of taking shoes off at the door. This instantly prevents mud and debris being trod into carpets and fabrics.

Other house rules include always putting plates in the dishwasher, emptying the bins when required, and tidying up clothes rather than leaving them on the floor.

Kids can help with the various chores around the home, especially when you use age-appropriate jobs and implement reward systems for extra encouragement. While they’re helping out, you’ll be able to dedicate more time to those cleaning duties too.

Aside from knowing that the kids are actually supporting your bid to keep the home tidy (rather than messing it up while you’re in the middle of cleaning), it also saves time. In turn, you’ll have a better chance of enjoying more time together as a family.

#4. Utilize Tech Gadgets

They say that cheaters never work out, but an exception can be made for cleaning duties. Automated technology can completely transform your approach to home cleaning, making life a lot easier.
