Calgarians are choosing condominiums as their preferred place of living because of their space, light, and contemporary aesthetic. But moving into a new condo doesn’t stop old, messy habits from continuing. Lots of Albertans struggle to keep their homes as clean as they want, so the spring is the perfect time to change that. Here are some great goals to set for yourself in the new decade, that will help you keep your condo sparkling.
Commit to Getting Motivated
We often end up skipping this step when making resolutions and forget why we’re struggling to stay as tidy as we’d like—most Albertans do not enjoy cleaning. When crafting a New Year’s resolution, it’s important to not just tackle the symptoms of the problem. The symptom is the mess; the problem is that you don’t like or don’t have time to properly clean your condo. Therefore, you need to commit to what will get you motivated. How will you reward yourself for a job well done? Inviting a friend over for dinner can be a great motivator for getting down to cleaning business before they arrive!
Tidy Every Day
We know this sounds so simple and rarely ever is, but tidying up a little every day greatly changes your cleaning success rate. Living in a condo that’s all yours, there’s a big difference between cleaning and decluttering. If you never get around to decluttering, you’ll never get the full clean you want. You don’t need to do this all at once, but start looking around and pay attention to items you might not really need. Having less stuff makes it a lot easier to have a neat condo! Make sure you know exactly where you’re putting your coat and bag when you get home, so they don’t end up on the floor.
Make a Specialized Checklist
Most checklists online will reference some cleaning tasks to take care of in your apartment, but they aren’t specific enough. Before you make a manageable and achievable New Year’s resolution, you need to know exactly what must be done. Answer questions like: what kind of flooring do you have and what’s the best way to clean it? How often do your appliances need to be cleaned? What kind of care does your heating and cooling system need? If you’re struggling to complete a list, a professional cleaner can determine what areas need the most attention.
