The baseboards in your home provide an additional layer of decoration, design and comfort. Baseboards make a room feel complete and can also pop with the right color combinations. Baseboards come in a variety of different sizes, patterns and thickness, making it easy to find a baseboard that goes along with the décor of your home. Just like everything else in your house, baseboards can collect a great deal of dust, dirt and grime if they are not regularly cleaned. Dust can accumulate quickly on the tops of baseboards, making a dull, gray color appear and your home looking not too tidy.

Cleaning Baseboards & Trim

Baseboards also take a hit from scuff marks, spills, accidents and pets too. Cleaning baseboards may seem like a simple task of just wiping down, but there are a few tips you should consider before you give yourself a knee ache from cleaning baseboards all day long. While no one will probably ever walk into your home and compliment you on how wonderfully clean your baseboards are, your guests will notice a dusty dirty baseboard, which will leave an impression that your home is not a clean one.

How to Keep Dust Build Up of Baseboards

Homes that have children and pets should allow a great deal of time to designate for baseboard cleaning. Dust and hair gravitate to the edges of a room and latch onto baseboards, creating a layer on the surface of the baseboards. Properly removing this dust and hair from every baseboard in every room will take time, so be prepared to spend an entire Saturday, if not more, getting your baseboards cleaned properly. A home that is heavily occupied should take on the chore of baseboard cleaning at least once every week. This will ensure that your baseboards are free from dust and hair that piles onto the surface of your baseboards over a short period of time.

Schedule Daily House Cleaning For The Week: This is a great way to get to each of the chores that need to be done in your home on a regular basis. Making a schedule is a great way to set up what days you are going to tackle jobs like laundry, dusting, bathrooms and kitchens. All the major tasks will be taken care of throughout the week and that will be good enough to get you to the following week.
Get Dressed For Housekeeping: This may seem silly but it is a great way to feel ready to start the chores. If you get ready in your regular everyday clothes you may be inclined to forfeit the chores so that you don’t make a mess of your outfit. You should start off the chores by getting out your apron and gloves and changing into clothes that are best suited to cleaning. You can also tie back your hair if it is long and gets in the way.
Organize and Invest In House Cleaning Supplies: If you have all the proper tools to do the cleaning in your home and it is organized neatly, it becomes easier to do. Be sure to replace any cleaners or tools as they run out or break. Have in your arsenal the cleaners that work best for the surfaces in your home and the tools that are used in each room. You can have them organized in a tote that can be kept in that particular room or area.
Stay On Task With Your Maid Services: The best way to keep motivated to clean is to schedule the time out just like you would if you had an appointment with a doctor. Set some time each day that is sufficient to the chores that are scheduled. Make sure you don’t have any distractions like TV shows, phone calls or friends stopping by. Once you start stay on task until you are done. Then you can move on to your day and enjoy.
Hire A Professional House Cleaning Company: The best way to keep your home clean is to hire a professional cleaning company to get the main cleaning done. You can keep the house kept up easier if the main work is done for you.

Quick Clean Up Tips for the Arrival of Unexpected Guests

For a quick clean-up when you have guests show up unexpectedly, keep a smaller sized laundry basket close at hand, pass it along to your spouse and have him go through the family room and kitchen collecting clutter such as shoes, magazines, clothes, books and toys while you momentarily detain your guests in the entryway. Have your spouse place the basket out of sight in a closet until your guests have left and the coast is clear.

Good Emergency Gift Ideas

If you have been caught without a gift to give a family member or friend you know the feeling of embarrassment that comes with the realization that you have forgotten something important. We are all guilty of forgetting a birthday or other special occasion and the best way to deal with an important occasion that has slipped your mind is to have an emergency gift supply. Include gifts that can be given to either a male or female adult family member or friend, such as picture frames, wine, candy, stationery, pen sets and candles. Don’t forget the kids. DIY craft sets make a great gift and be customized for either a boy or a girl. Keep an assortment of gift bags and cards in your supply so you are can package a gift a moment’s notice.
