The best cleaning tips to get your 2024 started.
With the new year upon us, it's the perfect time to give your living space a fresh start. Cleaning your surroundings not only creates a welcoming atmosphere but also promotes positive energy and productivity. So, let's dive into some cleaning tips that will help you kickstart 2024 on the right foot!
1. Declutter and organise
Start by going through each room and decluttering your belongings. Get rid of any items including clothes, anything in wardrobes, closets and drawers that you no longer use or need. Organise your belongings by category and find appropriate storage solutions to keep everything in order.
We highly recommend eco-friendly solutions for unwanted items such as recycling or donating to charity.
2. Deep clean the kitchen
Start the new year with a deep clean of your whole property, however we emphasise the kitchen as it’s usually the heart of the home, so it's essential to give it extra attention. Start by emptying out your cabinets and clean them thoroughly. Wipe down the countertops, appliances, and backsplash. Don't forget to scrub the oven, microwave, and refrigerator. A clean kitchen not only improves hygiene but will inspire you to cook more nutritious meals.
Get your oven and kitchen professionally deep cleaned if possible.
3. Refresh your bathroom
A clean and well-maintained bathroom is crucial for your well-being. Start by thoroughly scrubbing the tiles, grout, and shower/bathtub. Replace old shower curtains or wash them if reusable. Unclog drains and clean the toilet thoroughly. Add some scented candles or plants to create a soothing ambiance.
4. Clean your bedroom
Your bedroom should be a sanctuary for rest and relaxation. Wash your bedding, including sheets, pillowcases, and duvet covers. Dust all surfaces, including furniture, shelves, and baseboards. Vacuum or mop the floors. Consider rearranging your furniture to create a refreshing change. Having your mattress cleaned is a great way to remove bacteria and keep your mattress lasting longer.
5. Tackle the unforgotten spots
Pay extra attention to those often forgotten places, like the tops of ceiling fans, air vents, and behind large appliances. Dust and wipe down these areas to get rid of accumulated dirt and dust. It'll improve your indoor air quality and make your home feel cleaner. We recommend deep cleaning services by experienced cleaners who know what to look for.
6. Create a cleaning schedule
To maintain a clean and organised home throughout the year, create a cleaning schedule. Break down tasks into daily, weekly, and monthly chores and get everyone in the household involved. This way, you won't be overwhelmed with cleaning and can enjoy a tidy space consistently.
Don't have enough time? Book a cleaner to come around once every week.
7. Don't forget about outside spaces
Extend your cleaning efforts to your outdoor areas as well. Clean your external windows, patio, deck, or balcony, and dust off the furniture. Sweep away any leaves or debris accumulated around the house. A clean exterior will enhance your curb appeal and make your home feel more inviting.
Try having your exterior pressure cleaned at least once a year.
Remember, cleaning is not just a physical task; it can also be a therapeutic experience. Use this opportunity to reflect on your goals and aspirations for the new year while creating a clean and organised environment. By kickstarting 2024 with these cleaning tips, you'll set the stage for a productive and fulfilling year ahead.
