Keeping Your Burbank Rental Home Tidy All Year Round

Young woman vacuuming the living room at home.Maintaining the cleanliness of your rental home in Burbank all year can be hard for tenants. However, this problem can be turned into a manageable routine with a few simple and practical tips from the cleaning pros at Molly Maid. If you have the proper tools and know-how, you have the power to make your home tidier and cleaner all year round without getting too stressed out!

1. Declutter various rooms often

One of the important steps you can do to keep a house neat and tidy is to declutter each room frequently. The expert recommends using a cleaning chart or schedule to keep you on track and to always follow the same procedures to ensure that everything is put in its proper place.

This could require sorting items into ‘keep,’ ‘donate,’ and ‘throw-away’ piles and seeking storage solutions for things that you want to keep but don’t use frequently.

An ideal approach to reduce clutter is to organize clothes, shoes, and gear by season and put away what you’re not using right now in an attic or basement. For example, during the summer, you could store your winter coats, boots, and heavy blankets. In the winter, you could store your summer clothes and beach gear.

2. Break up the workload

A further helpful trick is to divide your large cleaning tasks into smaller ones that you can handle better. Molly Maid offers the ‘divide and conquer’ approach, in which you commence with the front of the house and clean a different room each day of the week.

For example, clean the living room every Monday, the kitchen every Tuesday, and so on. In this approach, you won’t be overwhelmed by cleaning the whole house all at once.

By dividing your cleaning tasks into daily, weekly, and monthly errands, you can make your house cleaning more efficient and faster. This strategy not only helps you maintain a clean and tidy home but also gives you more time to do other things. So, get going and start crossing things off your list!

3. Prevent dust from collecting

Also, cleaning experts say to do it smarter instead of harder. This entails coming up with efficient ways to clean that save you time and effort. One example is keeping your home free of dust, which can seem like an impossible task, but there are things you can do to slow the accumulation down.

One way to help trap dust and keep dust off your furniture is by changing your furnace’s air filter more often. Furthermore, as a bonus, using dryer sheets to wipe down window blinds and baseboards will help repel dust and leave an inviting fragrance behind.

4. Don’t forget the details

In the same way, cleaning glass and mirrors with newspapers compared to paper towels saves time and effort. Since newspapers leave no streaks or lint behind, they shine much faster. And the secret to getting your stainless steel appliances spotless? A microfiber cloth with a tiny amount of baby oil. The oil removes all smudges and leaves a smooth, even surface behind.

Generally, flooring is cleaned before a tenant moves in, but having it professionally cleaned at least once a year keeps it in a decent state and keeps the home looking and smelling its best. Learning the techniques of the trade can help make your cleaning tasks go faster, leaving you more time for additional activities.
