The first thing that we need to be clear about is what does optimal state term really mean? To put it simply, it is a kind of a state that any home is supposed to be between two spring cleanings. Two thorough spring cleanings, that is. We all know how our homes look and feel fresh and clean upon having one and the idea is to keep it in such state, as much as possible, as long as possible, so that every spring cleaning that follows becomes an ordinary cleaning task, quick and easy, instead of being such a hard work it currently is. Here is how to make all this happen and have a constantly truly healthy living environment.
Keeping your home clean and healthy is one of the key features in order for it to be in an optimal state. The only way to do this is to organize all cleaning tasks into daily ones and do them without ever skipping a single one. For example, you vacuum on Saturdays, dust on Sundays, do the dishes at 8:00 PM and do the laundry on Thursday afternoon and ironing on Friday evening while watching your favorite TV show. It may seem programmed, but you will soon become aware of how functional and time saving it really is, as well as how much this precise schedule facilitates your efforts to have everything inside you home the way you want it and the way it should be.
Do not wait for those small repairs to escalate into something serious that requires substantial budget and effort. For example, if you cook a lot and spend plenty of time in the bathroom too, there are chances that condensation and moisture problems will occur. Act promptly, just like you should when there is a small leak in your faucets or a hole in the roof. Remember, the smaller the problem, the easier the solution and all it requires is regular maintenance.
Holding on to things you rarely use very often leads to having a storage unit instead of a home. Therefore, declutter your home, and repeat it regularly. Get rid of things that you do not use or wear at least once a year. If there are things you simply cannot say farewell to despite the fact that you will never use them, out of legacy and good memories reasons, the best thing to do is to get a container shelter and use it as a dedicated place for all the things you don’t use frequently, such as tools, different, memorabilia and clothing items.
An optimal state is not just about physical condition of your home. The atmosphere it radiates is as much important as a clean and well organized space is. Therefore, enrich it with things you like and surround yourself with people and items you love. Let the sunlight in as much as possible, air the rooms regularly and get those works of art you always wanted and hang them on the walls. Organize friends and family gatherings more often, it is scientifically proven that sharing your thoughts will improve your mood, and in return all the tasks and requirements listed above will be met with less effort.
As you can see, keeping a house in optimal state is an ongoing and time consuming task. However, it is much more effective and productive than annual cleaning sessions, not to mention that they will make your home look and feel as one throughout the year, not just a couple of weeks after big cleanings. It is well worth it.
