Cleaning your house can feel like a drag and is likely the last thing you want to be doing after a long day’s work. But there are plenty of daily habits you can create to get little things done around the house that can have a significant impact on creating and maintaining a healthy home environment. Keep your house looking and smelling fresh with these 9 cleaning habits. No need to do them all at once; choosing just one or two to get started can make all the difference. 

1. Regular Vacuuming and Carpet Cleaning

Make vacuuming part of your daily and weekly routine. High foot traffic areas should be vacuumed more frequently than those areas with minimal foot traffic. Regular vacuuming not only prevents the buildup of dirt, dust, and debris on your carpet it helps to keep your floors looking clean. Regular vacuuming also helps improve the air quality in your home. 

Annual carpet cleanings by a professional cleaner will also help prolong your carpet’s lifespan and give it a deeper clean than what a commercial vacuum can do. A professional cleaner, like TruRinse, has the technology and approach to lift dirt, allergens, and debris out of the deep fibers of your carpet. We also have powerful, all natural cleaning solutions that don’t use harsh chemicals to give your carpet a more robust and fresh clean.

 

2. Remove your Shoes at the Door

Have you ever considered the amount of dirt, debris, and your shoes come into contact with while walking around outside? Now imagine all of that taking up residence in the dark and warm fibers of your carpet. Leaving your shoes at the door will help reduce the amount of buildup in your carpets. 

Practice the habit of leaving your shoes at the door as you first walk-in. Explore the concept of creating a “landing strip” just inside your door for everything to land when you first arrive home and see how you could fit that practice into your daily routine. 

 

3. Take Care of Spills as They Happen

Don’t wait to take care of spills later. Time is crucial when dealing with a spill. React fast but with precision and clarity. Don’t grab the first thing you can find and start cleaning. Properly handling the clean-up of a spill is equally as important as fast you react. Be familiar with manufacturer recommendations for cleaning your carpet and the appropriate way to apply treatment. Spills can lead to spots and stains on your carpet which can damage your carpet. 

Make a habit of having clean paper or cloth towels handy, preferably white, to make the process of cleaning a spill quicker and easier. Remember, don’t rub or scrub; you want to blot a spill and work from the outside inward to avoid creating a larger problem.  

 

4. Wipe Down Your Tile and Grout 

Tile and grout, just like carpet, collect lots of dirt, specifically in areas that collect lots of moisture. Keeping tile and grout clean and dry in your bathroom or kitchen, will help prevent the growth of mold.

It is recommended that you regularly clean your kitchen counters, floors, bathrooms, and anywhere else you have tile and grout in your home. Hiring a tile and grout cleaning specialist, such as a TruRinse technician, at least once annually, is highly recommended. 

 

5. Wash the Dishes and Clean Your Sink

A sink full of dirty dishes is sure to dampen any mood. A dirty sink full of dishes is not only a sore sight, but if not cleaned regularly, can cause clogged drains, which can lead to stagnant water collecting in the pipes, musty odors, and mold. 

This is a task that, with a few extra minutes each day, can be handled quickly. Start a daily habit of loading the dishwasher after dinner and rinsing out the sink. If you don’t have a dishwasher, invest in a sturdy dish drying rack and wash your dishes after each meal. It doesn’t take a long as you think! This will prevent the buildup of a bigger mess and leave the kitchen looking and smelling clean at the end of each day. Don’t forget to replace your cleaning sponges regularly. 

 

6. Wipe Down Counter Space Daily

Dirty sinks and counter spaces are a breeding ground. Most people use countertops for meal prep, clearing out grocery bags, and depositing things such as mail, purses, household objects, or other kitchen appliances. 

Wiping down counter space is a simple task, but an important one. A clean kitchen and bathroom space can really improve the cleanliness of your household. Add a simple habit of putting things away and wiping things down as you go during the day. You can help prevent the further spread by keeping the counters wiped down after daily use.  

 

7. Sweep the Kitchen Floor

Cleaning off your countertops and sweeping your kitchen floor go hand in hand. Like all surfaces, including your carpet, your floors collect all the dirt, debris, and you bring from outside. 

When floors are not swept and cleaned, dust, debris, and build-up, which cause a variety of adverse health effects. Dirty floors can also invite unwanted critters into your home. If you haven’t deep cleaned them in a while, you can give them a good mop or give TruRinse a call if you have tile flooring.  

 

8. Upholstery Cleaning 

Want to improve the look and feel of your home? Why not give your upholstery a good cleaning? Our professional upholstery cleaning services can put new life to your favorite sitting chair or couch. TruRinse uses only the highest quality non-chemical cleaning treatments and revolutionary systems, removing residue, dirt, soil, and anything else that makes your upholstery dirty. 

Having clean furniture can make your environment more welcoming, and comfortable. When we spend more time inside during the winter, we encourage you to get them cleaned at the beginning of each fall, so that way you are ready to be in your house and enjoy the comfort of your home.

9. Schedule a Professional Cleaning

Some chores are best left to the professionals. If you are ready to give your home a refreshing deep clean, book an appointment with a TruRinse technician today. We can help breathe new life into your home! 

We guarantee you will be amazed and you can count on us to be upfront with our pricing without any extra hidden fees.

This is the second time... we’ve hired this company and they’ve gone above and beyond both times. We had Andrew clean our carpets today and he was so positive, professional, attentive, and generous. The carpets look amazing. He was able to get crushed slime out of our master bedroom carpet and toddler urine out of my daughter’s bedroom. 😂 You would never know how much my kids abuse these carpets based on these “after” pictures. Thank you, Andrew and the TruRinse team who set up the appointment and communicated so clearly. I will continue to recommend you to everyone I know and will be reaching out in the future for another cleaning! Also, I REALLY appreciate the very clean, fragrance free, natural salt product you use! It cleans so well without any of the junk!!! 👏👏👏read more

Oh my word these guys... are awesome! I heard about them from a friend who does daycare and decided to give them a try (i have used other in the past, usually disappointing-zerorez was sadly the worst)... I asked for the same technician she used (Jacob) just to be on the safe side, but was assured all their technicians are great ;).... these guys were kind, professional, fast and my carpets look BEAUTUFUL! After a huge Easter party, we had silly putty, baby food pouch splatter, throw up etc, i mean my carpet was rough! So got i called the next day lol! They were able to come out when i needed and really did a fabulous job! Thankyou sooo much!!! Supernice that they cared they did their job they didn't add any extra fees, not for anybof those spots, nothing! Way to run a good business!:)read more
