How to Keep a Home Clean with Kids

Jun 22, 2017

If you have kids, you already know how tough it is to keep your home spotless 24/7. As soon as one mess is cleaned up, there always seems to be another one waiting for you. Here are some tips for keeping your home clean while keeping your sanity as well!

How to keep a home clean with kids

Organize your Home

If things around your home don’t have a specific place they are kept, they will almost always end up somewhere they don’t belong. Buy baskets, shelving, or cabinets specifically for toys and add labels so your older children fully understand what goes where.

Downsize your Stuff

Toys and other items that keep your children occupied and entertained can very easily build up over the years. Try to go through their belongings at least once or twice a year, and help promote a healthier environment by passing older toys and clothes to friends or family members with small children.

Recruit some Help

There are plenty of easy tasks that kids of all ages can help with around the house. Recruit them to make beds, dust furniture (that they can reach!), and put their toys away in their respective drawers or cabinets. If you have trouble getting them to help, create a chore chart and reward them with a special treat or new toy when they complete their tasks!

Enforce the Rules

Keeping the house clean sometimes requires regular effort from your little ones. Making a rule that one mess or bunch of toys must be cleaned up before moving onto another will keep you from having to spend your days endlessly cleaning up one mess after another.

Replace your Flooring

If you have a lot of carpeted floors, you know they are practically magnets for dirt, mud, dust, grime, and spills. Consider replacing carpet in places like the playroom and mudroom with tile or vinyl flooring. These types of floors are much easier to clean, and don’t require time-consuming floor deep cleaning treatments in order to get them spotless.

"WOW, WOW, WOW. I don't know what else to say. With two dogs and a 2 year old running around the house, our carpets and furniture need cleaning on a regular basis. It's nice to know that all I need to do is pick up the phone and I have no more worries. In this day and age, it is a very pleasant surprise to come across a company who will do what they say they will do when they say they will do it and with very little supervision. Kudos to Kent Clean!!! Thanks Larry!"
