Have you been trying to keep your home clean, but it just won’t cooperate? Plenty of homeowners across the United States (and, indeed, around the world) struggle with this problem. Why won’t my home stay clean? Maybe you aren’t using the right Top Notch Cleaning Habits.

It can be frustrating when, twelve hours after leaving your sparkling kitchen, you return to piled-up dishes, dirt, grime, and bacteria. Or when you’ve finally finished reorganizing your living room, only to find toys, blankets, pillows, and carpet stains less than a week later.

Here are eight Top Notch Cleaning Habits that will stop messes before they start:

1. Stop taking “no” for an answer.

Do you feel like the only person in your household that cares about keeping your home clean? Do you constantly find yourself doing the dishes, vacuuming, and cleaning messes without recognition, appreciation, or assistance? You aren’t alone. In many households, a single man or woman is held responsible for tidying the home.

Keep your home cleaner longer by resisting the word “no.” Require your children and your spouse (or your roommates) to complete certain chores. Come up with reasonable repercussions. It might help to complete a roommate contract, even with family members. Divide responsibilities and conquer them together. You’ll find this process eliminates a significant amount of pressure from your day-to-day life.

2. Invest in professional steam cleaning.

It can be difficult to picture your home without messes of any kind – but that’s exactly what professional steam cleaning can accomplish. Hire a local team that you trust. When the team leaves, have your family take stock of the changes within your household. Does your carpet feel more comfortable? Is your hardwood floor shining? Remember that, if you maintain your home properly, the “sparkle” will stick around for months.

3. Take stock of your assets and responsibilities.

If you aren’t sure where to begin when it comes to cleaning your home, start by writing a list. What cleaners, vacuums, and other assets do you have? Pair those assets with responsibilities, such as hardwood floor cleaning, carpet cleaning, window washing, or dusting. It helps to create a list for each room in your home. Write down what needs to be cleaned, how often it needs to be cleaned, and who is responsible for each task. Post this list somewhere public, such as your fridge or a kitchen cabinet.

4. Take a vacation.

Sometimes, the state of our home can be overwhelming, especially if there is plenty of work to be done. Consider hiring a team of professional steam cleaners to give your home a fresh feel while you take a small vacation. Even if you only escape your home for a weekend, it can be enough to give you a new outlook on cleanliness. Often, we just need a breath of fresh air to clear our minds and make everything whole again.

5. Ask an expert.

Are you still struggling to keep your home clean, even after using Top Notch Cleaning Habits? Consider meeting with an expert. This could be the head of a local steam cleaning business. It could also be a home economics teacher or a friend who has a particularly clean home. Choose someone you trust and ask the tough questions. Namely: Why aren’t my methods working?

6. Take before and after photographs of your home.

This is the simplest way to ensure your home is cleaned properly. Just after a professional steam cleaning, take photos of your spotless home. You’ll be able to reflect on these photos to determine whether or not a cleaning task was completed properly.

7. Ask visitors for their opinions and advice.

If you aren’t sure what cleaning methods are working and what cleaning methods are failing, consider asking your visitors, neighbors, family members, or friends for their opinion when they visit. Friends and family have a tendency to be overly honest. They might not say what you want to hear, but they’ll certainly make the picture clearer for you.

8. Never stop improving.

The home cleaning process (and Top Notch Cleaning Habits) is all about improvement. While this doesn’t mean you should constantly worry about making your home bigger, better, and brighter, it does mean you should always be looking for ways to make the cleaning process easier and more efficient. Don’t add more items to clean. Eliminate unnecessary items, then add new methods to your madness.

 Jen and team were so great to work with. We had a hard task at hand removing adhesive residue from residential hard wood floors. We couldn’t find anyone else up for the task and NYC Steam Cleaning got the job done. Highly recommend this service and team for any floor, carpet, rug, upholstery cleaning needs.

5 star experience. I recently got a puppy who turned my new couch into her personal bathroom. I did a google search and found NYC steam cleaning. Luckily, I was able to make an appointment for the next day with this company. The entire cleaning took about 1 hour. My couch is brand new again, thank you!!

 I have hired them two times and have been highly pleased. Our pet was not very nice to this carpet and they were capable to get it clean. They also did my upholstery and the whole thing looks great. Their service charges are very rational and the workers have arrived within few minutes.
