Does life ever get so busy for you that you find it difficult, or just flat out impossible, to keep up with the maintenance of your home? Everyone has been in this position and knows exactly what it feels like when the clutter piles up and you feel as if you are drowning in it! Even though “life” happens for everyone, it is important for your overall mental health to keep your home is clean as possible, so you feel less stressed when you return home from work each day! But, how exactly do you keep up home maintenance with such a busy schedule? Here are some tips on some of the big things relating to home maintenance that you should keep an eye on before it builds up out of control:
- Dusting. To keep up with the dust buildup, try to incorporate 10-15 minutes of dusting several different rooms every few days, rather than once every few months. The more you dust, the easier it will be for you physically. Not to mention, it will immensely help anyone who suffers from allergies in your home!
- Keep an eye on the exterior. Watch the exterior of your home for any painting, trimming or window touch-ups that need to be made. It is important to watch so that if you notice anything that needs a little bit of fixing, it can be done on a much smaller (and less expensive!) scale. Do not wait until all your windows need full replacements, or your entire home needs fresh painting!
- Maintain your heater and air conditioner. When it comes to your heater and air conditioner, it is important that you maintain them and ensure that they are clean and working properly on a regular basis. If you do not keep up, it may cause pollution in the home or an unexpected breakdown which is not only inconvenient but also extremely expensive!
