From family, friends or relatives visiting, to Saturday barbecue, or to your kids’ playtime in your house, everything should be ready and cleaned.

To make things a little easier on your part, we have 5 tips to help you keep your house in its best condition this time of year.

1.      Organise Your Wardrobe

Organising your wardrobe should be the first step to organizing the rest of your home. You should get rid of all those unused clothing and accessories. Your wardrobe will look even more appealing, you’ll be able to find something great to wear without hours of searching.

 2.      Caring tips for your Wooden Floors

The best way to keep your wooden floors at their best is to avoid over-sanding.

To reduce the chance of marks and grooves that need to be sanded use:

  • Mats and rugs on entrances of your house and busy areas reduces sand particles from entering your house
  • Place trivets or saucers under plants bases to prevent sand or soil from touching your floor surface
  • Use of furniture protectors can avoid scratches and marks
  • Damp-mopping once a week ( or as needed) with water only keeps your wooden floor’s shine

3.      Reorganize your bookshelves

  • Sort all your books in the bookshelves according to sizes and subjects.
  • Arrange books in a vertically or horizontally rhythmic pattern. This will give a unique look on your bookshelves and can become a feature.
  • Pack into boxes and store any books that you have outgrown (particularly children’s books) or just don’t use anymore.
  • Remove any clutter

4.      Cleaning your Carpet

To keep your carpets looking at their best, a nice suggestion from Country Life Carpet Care will come very handy:  “Take off shoes when you get home, but leave the socks on because walking around with bare feet leaves marks of body oils that attract dirt.”

Vacuuming once a week, more often in traffic areas as needed also ensures your carpet look nice and clean. Get your carpets professionally cleaned once or twice a year, but once you see your carpets are dirty, call Country Life Carpet Care, for fast and professional carpet cleaning.

5.      Caring for Your Tile flooring

Cleaning your bathroom, kitchen and room tiles with a cleaner that has “neutral pH” on it ensures good quality tile floors after the session. You can also mix your own home-made tile cleaner by adding 1/2 cup baking soda in 2 litres water. Mix it well. Apply the liquid solution on your tile flooring using a clean mop and mop off.
