5 Tips for How to Keep Your House Clean
1. Floors…Twice a Week

Keeping dirt and debris off of floors, keep this stuff from building up elsewhere- on your furniture, baseboards etc. The Carpet and Rug Institutes suggests that you vacuum twice a week. Also, make sure your clean your tile, laminate, and wood at least once a week.
2. Shoes Off at the Door
Kicking off your shoes at the door prevents grass, dirt, and other debris from making its way throughout your house. This will also help your floors stay cleaner for longer.
3. Start Your Day…with Laundry.
Wanna reduce the stress that comes with mounds of dirty laundry? Start your day with a cup of coffee and a load of laundry. Just throw a load in when you wake up and dry and fold either throughout the day or when you get home from work.
4. End Your Day…with Dishes
Waking up to a pile of dirty dishes in the sink is just downright depressing. So, make sure to do your dirty dishes or throw them in the dishwasher before you go to bed. If you have time, rinse out and dry your sink to remove debris, odors and spots. Removing the spots quickly helps them from becoming stains if they set.
