With the new year comes New Year’s resolutions. Determined Americans across the country are resolving to be more fit, financially-responsible and tidier in the new year. Unfortunately, according to U.S. News & World Report, 80 percent of New Year’s resolutions fail by February! This epidemic failure rate most often stems from unrealistic goals or lack of planning. Fortunately, we’ve got some tips on how you can keep your resolution to maintain a nice, clean home.

It’s a Lifestyle Change

The first step in succeeding with any New Year’s resolution is to get in the proper mindset. Regardless of your goal, it’s important to think of the necessary changes as a new lifestyle. This is much easier to do if the change is realistic. In terms of maintaining a clean house, it’s impractical to set the goal of cleaning every inch of your home on a daily basis. Instead, think of it as turning over a new leaf. Incorporate regular cleanings into your daily life, but do so at a reasonable rate.

Never Underestimate the Power of a Good Game Plan

Next, develop a plan to maintain your clean house. You’ll find regular maintenance is much easier than letting your home get overwhelmingly dirty and then attempting to do periodic deep cleans. Instead, set aside time every week in your schedule to do maintenance tasks. Depending on the size of your home and your lifestyle, it may be a good idea to set aside an additional one weekend per month to tackle and deep-clean different sections of your house. Sectioning off your home can make the process of maintaining order seem much less overwhelming.

Don’t Be Afraid to Ask for Help

Finally, you may realize your lifestyle and busy schedule do not leave time for you to clean regularly. Don’t worry - all is not lost! Sometimes, it’s best to call in the professionals for help. In addition to hiring a maid or employing a gardener, you can also schedule a window cleaner.

Clean windows are visible from the inside and outside of your home – meaning it impacts both you and your neighbors. You will be amazed at the difference clean windows can make in your daily life. No more fingerprints, dirt or grime blocking sunshine and your view of the outside world. Unfortunately, cleaning windows properly can be a difficult and time-consuming task if you are inexperienced or lack the proper tools.
