Embrace Technology

In today’s technologically advanced world, it would be silly to not utilize the technologies available to us when it comes to home care.

With the rise in the use or cordless vacuum cleaners, keeping your flooring and carpets clean is a breeze. Forget fiddling with finicky cords and hefty machines – the cordless vacuum cleaner allows you to clean each room in your home in under a few minutes.

Delegate, Delegate, Delegate!

If you live in a home with more than one occupant, now is the perfect time to come up with a delegation schedule. If you have children, delegate them to do simple chores such as dusting tables and cabinets. Other simple tasks that the little ones can help with are drying the dishes, organizing drawers and unloading the washing machine. Adults in the home can be delegated to do certain tasks on each day such as taking the bins out, folding laundry and doing the dishes. As they say, teamwork makes the dreamwork, so delegate away!

Multitasking Is Your Friend

Are you struggling to find time to sit back, relax and watch a TV show when there are a million chores yet to be done? This is where multitasking comes in. Why not watch TV and iron at the same time? Or perhaps put on your favorite podcast in the background whilst doing the dishes? Multitasking a fun activity with a rather mundane one is one of the best ways to ensure that you’re not missing out on anything for the day whilst at the same time ensuring that you’re on top of your housework at all times.

Don’t Let The Mess Pile Up

One of the things people, unfortunately, tend to do is letting messes pile up. Avoid this from happening by ensuring that you’re doing a little bit of homecare each and every day. Instead of letting the dishes pile up over a week and toiling over them for an hour, create habits in which you wash and store your dishes as soon as you are done with them. This often will take only 10 minutes of your time versus having to spend hours on a task on a Friday night when you should be kicking back and relaxing. The same goes for laundry and general mess/clutter.

Engage in Nightly Reset

Last but not least, engaging in a nightly reset of your home is very helpful in ensuring that things are in their assigned spaces. Before heading to bed, we recommend doing a quick walk around the house to make sure that everything is back in its place. Ensure remotes are in their holders, dishes are in the sink and that toys are kept away. This will often only take about 10 minutes of your time and will ensure that you wake to a tidy and neat house to start your day off right.

Homecare doesn’t have to be a stressful or lengthy task that you abhor. We hope that these 5 handy tips have given you some inspiration when it comes to staying on top of home care.
