CLEANING RESOLUTIONS FOR THE NEW YEAR
A new year can be a great year (and a clean year) if you set the right resolutions. We’ve gathered a few of our favorite tips and tricks for making your New Year’s cleaning resolutions better than ever.
Set a Cleaning Schedule
We know it feels like your to-do list is never ending. So, for the year ahead, set a schedule and stick to it. Decide what needs to be cleaned daily, weekly, and monthly and you won’t feel so overwhelmed when your to-do list piles up. Get the whole family involved! A cleaning schedule can divide the workload and make everything feel more manageable.
You can even set a schedule for your deep cleaning regimen. We recommend deep cleaning your carpet at least twice a year, but up to six times if you have pets or young children. Consistently deep cleaning your carpet will help you:
Remove dirt and stains your vacuum can’t reach
Suck up allergens that get trapped in the fibers of your carpet
Help to extend your carpet’s life by keeping it looking good longer
Help you adhere to your carpet’s warranties when you use BISSELL Advanced with Scotchgard™protector.
We don’t just mean the typical kind of organized. To really stay on top of things, you can organize in three ways:
Make Cleaning Portable
Organize your budget: Becoming more money savvy is a common New Year’s resolution. Apply this to your housekeeping budget.
Organize your routine: You can make cleaning a little easier if you make it a habit to clear clutter on a daily basis. This can be as simple as doing a quick walkthrough before bed, picking up any clutter, taking dishes to the sink or the dishwasher, and tidying up as you go.
Organize your home: Once you’ve organized your budget and your pick-up routine, you can organize your home. Does your linen closet often fall into disarray after laundry day? Is the coat closet overwhelming? Does your pantry make you crazy? Focus on the spots in your home that are most dysfunctional and use organizational tools to make them work for you.
Whether you live in an apartment or a house, cleaning can feel tiresome if you’re lugging loads of supplies around with you. Make cleaning portable by creating a cleaning caddy. A tote or carry caddy can be a great place to keep the cleaning supplies you use most often; they can also allow you to move from room to room easily.
Renting a deep cleaner from BISSELL Rental also helps make cleaning portable and saves precious storage space, too. You pick up the machine only when you need it, it’s easy to use, and you don’t need to worry about maintenance—so keeping those cleaning resolutions has never been easier.
