9 Tips To Make Cleaning Your Home So Much Easier

If you’re looking for ways to make home cleaning easier, then this blog post is for you.

I’m discussing everything from non-porous flooring and carpet-like tiles to getting rid of wall-to-wall carpeting.  

If you need help cleaning your home faster, then read on!

1. Replace Various Items

Sometimes, no matter how much effort you put into cleaning something, it just isn’t enough. Besides, you can buy all the latest and best cleaning equipment from various stores, but nothing will eliminate that stubborn stain. 

Solution? You can replace various appliances with new ones. If something is too old, it may have stains which have been accumulating for the past years, pretty challenging to clean. So instead, opt for installing new items. For instance, you may want to consider replacing old windows, buying a new dish cleaner, or a new gutter installation to ease cleaning your home!

 

2. Use Non-Porous Flooring

Use non-porous flooring to lessen the cleaning burden. Carpet and area rugs will eventually accumulate dirt, bacteria, dust mites, pet dander, human skin cells, all of which can worsen allergies and trigger asthma or other respiratory problems for people with sensitivities. 

Floor tiles are a great solution. They’re easier to clean than carpet and come in many different styles like porcelain tile that mimic natural stone while still having low maintenance properties like easy installation and minimal grout lines, so spills don’t show easily! 

Hardwood floors are another option, but beware when there are children around because this floor is more challenging to maintain due to scratches from shoes. It also requires specific care, like a monthly cleaning with mineral oil.

Porous flooring, like shag carpeting, is one of the worst offenders when it comes to collecting dirt and dust. Opt for a non-porous floor such as tile or hardwood instead.

3. Opt for Carpet-Like Tiles Instead of a Wall-to-Wall Carpet

If you have a wall-to-wall carpet in your home, it can be difficult and time-consuming to vacuum. It is also easy for dirt or spills to get stuck in the rug’s fibers, making them more challenging to clean than tile floors. 

Carpet tiles are an excellent alternative option because they’re easier on your back during vacuuming. In addition, if something does spill, then it’s only one square that needs cleaning instead of a whole room full of carpeting.

Carpet-like tiles are easy to maintain and come in a variety of colors. They also provide good insulation against noise. So, if you like the look and feel of carpet but not the task of vacuuming it every day or two, carpet-like tile is an excellent alternative for your home.

4. Use Easy-to-Clean Finishes on the Walls

You can lessen the burden of cleaning your home by using easy-to-clean finishes on the walls. 

One great example of this, which most people have used many times in their homes, is a paint coated with an additional layer made out of rubber or vinyl as waterproofing protection for the surface behind it. 

This coating helps protect against stains and makes cleaning up easier after any accidents, such as spills from messy toddlers! Not only does this type of finish make clean-up so much more straightforward, but it will save you time because there’s no need to scrub at grease spots or wipe down dusty surfaces – just a quick sweep with a wet sponge or cloth. Should do most jobs!

 

5. Choose Stain-Resistant Upholstery Fabric

Consider choosing stain-resistant upholstery fabric when purchasing furniture. This will make it easier to clean and maintain a home with an active family or lifestyle, such as pets or children. 

The use of either leather or cloth on the furniture is optional; however, stains are more easily removable from these materials than vinyl which scratch and wear away over time, exposing the foam padding underneath that cannot get cleaned. 

Stain-resistant fabrics range in price significantly but can offer tremendous savings considering how often people need to replace their current furnishings due to age-related damage (such as scratches) and accidental spills.

6. Opt for Sleek Slipcovers for the Couch

The couch is one of the dirtiest places in your home. Fortunately, you can use some tips to keep it clean. Opt for sleek slipcovers rather than upholstery fabric and sheets that will collect dust and pet hair over time.

Replace them regularly, so they remain fresh-looking. Thirdly, add a contrasting border or trim to make the slipcover more attractive when new (and less noticeable as you use it). If you choose to use upholstery fabric, opt for durable materials like wool or cotton that are easy to clean and maintain with vacuum cleaners and spot-cleaning techniques, such as blotting the stain with a cloth dipped in cool water.

7. Install Casters on Your Furniture 

Casters are a great way to move around furniture and make it easy to change the layout of your room. They also make it possible for people with limited mobility, like those who use wheelchairs or walkers, to access all home areas without lifting heavy objects. 

In addition, casters can get installed on most shelving units, so you have more options when storing things in tight spaces.

8. Choose Furniture with Storage

If you’re like many homeowners or apartment renters, storage space is a precious commodity. It seems that no matter how much you try, you do not have room for all of our items! Organized closets with shelving systems will help solve this problem while adding an aesthetically pleasing touch to any space that they occupy.

9. Downsize on Your Home When Possible

I know how hard it is to downsize your belongings and get rid of things you’ve grown attache to, but trust me it’s necessary!

Consider downsizing as an option before making any significant decisions on what renovations should occur in your home. It could save time and money in the long run!

The sooner you can implement these tips into your home, the easier your home will be to clean!
