Sometimes cleaning your home, even if you do it thoroughly and take your time over it, is not enough to make it feel clean. It might look clean, but that’s not always the most important element – you need it to feel clean as well. Luckily, there are plenty of hints and tips on offer to give you this fresh, clean feeling any time you want – read on to find out what some of them are.
Use Flower and Living Plants
If you add a bouquet of flowers in a vase on a table or windowsill, or you have some vibrant green plants – perhaps with an added splash of color from its own flowers – in the corner of a room or by a doorway, you can instantly brighten up and freshen up any area of your home. Use them all over the place, and everywhere will feel fresh, light, and lively.
The light, floral scent that many of these plants and flowers will give off will add to the feeling of cleanliness and freshness in your home, and they simply make the whole house look more comfortable and cozier too. It is why real estate agents tend to stage houses using plenty of fresh flowers and greenery.
Clean Your Carpets
Your carpets are one of the dirtiest areas of your home, and no matter how often (or not) you vacuum them, they are still going to accumulate plenty of dirt, dust, and debris. The best way to get them truly clean is to have a professional carry out steam carpet cleaning London. You’ll be amazed at how fresh your entire home feels once this task is carried out.
Steam cleaning the carpet will remove any ground in dirt, leaving your home much healthier and cleaner overall. It may also be able to remove stains, even those you thought were there to stay like coffee or red wine. So not only will your home feel cleaner, it will look cleaner and tidier too.
Remove Your Clutter
It doesn’t matter how much hard work you put into cleaning your home if it is full of clutter; it is never going to seem as fresh and lovely as it could do. Plus, having lots of ‘stuff’ around just means there is more to clean.
To get the great, fresh feeling you are looking for, you need to declutter. That means removing anything you don’t need. You can find a new, much neater place for it in your home if you want to. Otherwise, you could try selling it online, holding a garage sale, or donating it to charity. If the items you are decluttering are no good to anyone, you will need to take them to the dump. The end result will be a much fresher, tidier, cleaner home.
Change the Smell
One of the keys to freshness at home is the smell. If your home smells wonderful, it will feel fresher, especially if the scent is citrus or another vibrant fragrance. To do this is a simple thing; simply invest in a diffuser; you can find cheap ones and more expensive ones, and there is sure to be one to suit your budget.
Using a diffuser in your home for just 30 minutes a day will make it smell absolutely delightful and feel incredibly fresh.
