Quickest way To Keep A House Clean 

How do I keep my home clean from all the mess my kids and pets are making?

We all know how lovely it feels to come home to a clean home, especially a freshly vacuumed carpet underneath your toes, realistically that very rarely happens for us parents. So what can we do to make the home feel fresher in the shortest time?

The best item in the home to begin with is undoubtedly your vacuum cleaner: By using it regularly on the carpet and all hard floors, the vacuum cleaner will cover more surface area in the shortest possible time-frame. When you’re cleaning the beds give the mattresses a quick vacuum too, you will find all-sorts of food related items and also pet hairs on the mattresses and this will prevent bed-bugs. Bed Bugs thrive on food debris and dander from dogs and will become a problem if the mattress isn’t vacuumed regularly.

Vacuuming the home a minimum of 2-3 times per week will massively improve the overall cleanliness of your home in no time at all, to get the best results do a walk over the entire home prior to vacuuming, pick up all toys and general clutter that doesn’t need to be on the floors. By doing this you will be making sure that small toys dont get stuck in the vacuum hose!

Before settling your kids down for the night have a walk around the whole house for’ 10 minutes with your children in tow, if your children are over the age of 5, they should be Absolutely fine, trust me, this is an excellent age for them to begin helping. Let them pick up all the toys and other stuff they have left out and you’ll be surprised by how much this simple chore will help you keep on top of things, this routine will eventually teach the kids to make less mess as they play. Children are far more clever than we give them credit for and they will quickly understand that trashing the house comes with a bed-time routine and that bed-time routine becomes quicker the tidier they’re.

So, what vacuum cleaner would we recommend you buy if you had children and pets: I am going to recommend two vacuum cleaners to you and no we’re not being paid to advertise them, we have used both these vacuum cleaners in 2022 and would highly recommend both.
