The rainy season has finally arrived to cool the remnants of the harmattan and dry air. It’s refreshing to have a wet and cool environment as we humans like comfort a lot. But for homeowners, the rainy season causes inconveniences especially with mud all around. It is even a greater challenge to those who have kids because this means more dirtiness for rainy days. That is why we’ve decided to give tips on how to keep your home clean even in the rainy season.
- Keep your shoe rack near the door/entrance
Shoes, slippers, sandals and general footwears are the major causes of dirt in the house. The mud and dirt from outside comes in through footwears. That is why you should ensure that the shoe rack is by the entrance so that your family members can put it off as they come in. Also, all wet bags, umbrellas and coats should be hanged outside before they come in.
- Ensure You Have a thick foot mat.
There are variants of foot mats, some are thick while some are thin. Ensure that you have a thick rug-type foot mat at the enterance. This will keep legs dry enough to limit dirt coming into the house. Also, ensure to dust and clean the foot mats often.
Spilled water, milk or any form of liquid can cause a large amount of dirt when stepped on. It can also make your home accident -prone. Avoid using carpets in this season as they are hard to clean when wet.
Since most of the time your doors and windows are closed during the rainy days, your house can get damp with molds growing causing a foul odor. You can air the room every now and then to avoid the stale, damp air from accumulating and use air deodorizers to tone the stench down.
- Use disinfectants while cleaning the floor
Since the sun might be absent for a while, some bacteria grows well in wet conditions. It is therefore advisable to clean your floor with disinfectants always to ensure safety.
- Maintain a clean bathroom
Since you can’t dry clothes outside or wash things outside, most people resort to using their bathrooms thereby making it the dirtiest part of the house. You may clean your bathroom regularly or every after use to make sure the dirt doesn’t stay on the floor or bathroom walls. A clean floor also dries up easily compared if there’s dirt lodged at the corners of your bathroom tiles.
- Check your drainage system
A blocked drainage can even add more problems to the lineup of cleaning tasks you need to do. Keep it free from any clogs so flood water can easily pass through the pipes. This will also prevent flooding in your area.
- Schedule a weekly general cleaning
One of the best ways to ensure that the entire house is absolutely clean is to schedule a weekly general cleaning. As there is so much to do, you can contract a cleaning professional to help with this.
