5 Back To School House Cleaning Tips

The kids are going back to school, and now’s a great time to get your home back into shape! We at Paragon Cleaners have listed some common areas of homes that aren’t as often cleaned, and ways the kids can get in on all the cleaning action.

Check out our back to school cleaning tips below.

Donate Any Outgrown Clothes

Sit down with your kids and examine every piece of clothing they own. If you notice any pieces they have either outgrown or never wear, donate them to your local homeless shelter if they are wearable pieces of clothing. You can even check out your own closet and do the same. Now you and your kids have more storage space for clothing you actually wear, as well as a lighter laundry load.

Establish A Shoe Area

As we enter different seasons, the flooring in your home can get damaged due to outdoor dirt and debris being tracked around the home. Take a few minutes with your kids to set up a designated shoe area. You can even get creative and make a shoe sign. If you have tile or hardwood flooring, run a rug along the floor of the shoe area. This rug will collect all the dirt from the shoes in your shoe area.

Make Chores Fun with Chore Time

If you make cleaning the house fun, more kids wouldn’t be so hesitant to help clean! Establish a cleaning routine – this includes setting up a clean up time, making a list of everything that needs to be done, and your creative way of getting everyone involved in cleaning. Here’s an idea: you can write each chore on a piece of paper, slip it in a jar, and get the kids to draw their own chores. Turn it up a notch with some groovy tunes! Cleaning in a quiet house isn’t fun.

Soak The Dishes

Before you serve dinner, fill up your kitchen sink with hot soapy water. Have everyone scrape any excess food into the garbage, then place their plate in the sink to soak once they are done eating. The idea here is to make sure you don’t have a pile of dirty dishes on the counter to tend to once everyone is done eating. Since the dishes are already in the water, you finish cleaning the kitchen a little quicker.

Baby Steps Can Go A Long Way

Most of the tips listed here are simple and fun to get the whole family involved in.

With everyone working as one, you can enjoy the upcoming school year in a home that’s now easier to keep in mint condition.

But we understand that schedules are busy, and most of us could always use the occasional boost in keeping our homes in the best shape. Not to mention, a good professional cleaning service. Whether you need a deep cleaning or scheduled weekly, biweekly, or monthly cleaning, Paragon is at your service.
