Review Your Snag Report
A home inspection report can be very telling and informative. If you had one done when you first moved in, it may be time to bring it back out. There is most likely a list of items that you should address now or in the near future. It will not only notify you of each defect, but also the extent and nature of each. Examine what’s on it, and then make a list of what you want to and need to do, putting the items in priority order. Make a budget to determine what you can do yourself and which projects will require hiring help. Following through on these suggestions will benefit you because it will most likely improve your situation.
Observe & Make To-Do Lists
Another way to keep your home in good condition is to simply observe it and make note of areas that need improvement. Examine your surroundings to determine what requires your attention or bothers you the most. Make to-do lists of what to do first and foremost to get organized. Now is also a good time to create a seasonal checklist so you know what you need to work on at different times of the year. Determine which tasks must be completed immediately and which can wait until another time to avoid feeling overwhelmed.
KEEP KITCHEN COUNTERS CLEAN
Throughout the day, keep your kitchen counters clear of all unnecessary clutter. Resist the urge to use your countertops or tables as a drop-off location for magazines, mail, keys, and other items. Make sure your counters are fully functional for cooking and only keep items that are used on a daily basis on them.
LOAD THE DISHWASHER
Make it a habit to load the dishwasher with dishes and pans as soon as you finish eating. Don’t wait for them to pile up; even if you don’t have enough dishes to run the dishwasher, taking that small step will help to keep your kitchen looking clean. When it’s full, you can turn it on and start washing the dishes.
Maintain Cleanliness & Declutter
If you want to keep your home in good shape and condition, do a deep clean every now and then. Maintain regular cleanliness by following a cleaning routine and schedule. Assign chores to your family members and get everyone involved in order to keep your home clean and orderly. Declutter and get rid of anything you no longer need or that is taking up space. Your goal is to make your home look more organized and tidier while also making room for what you enjoy doing. It is critical to keep dust and dirt under control and not to allow it to accumulate over time. Not only will your home look better, but everyone in your family will be healthier as well.
WIPE YOUR WINDOWS CLEAN
When cleaning your windows, use a streak-free glass cleaner, but don’t use too much. You can also clean with a sponge, paper towels, or a squeegee and one part hot water to one part distilled vinegar. When using a squeegee, dampen it first, then clean from top to bottom, wiping the edge of the squeegee after each stroke. Safeguarding your window with wire mesh is as important as cleaning it, as it is the primary source for insects and mosquitoes to come into your home, and always keep an insect repellent at home.
You now have practical methods and advice for keeping your home in good condition. It will take time, attention, and extra effort on your part, but you will soon have a more beautiful and organized home to show off and enjoy.
