Moving into a new home is an exciting prospect, but if you let cleaning slip through your fingers early on, you might be disappointed later when you struggle to manage your space. From Daybreak Living, here are our three best home maintenance and cleaning habits to get into when you buy a home in Daybreak Utah.

Staying on Top of Cleaning When You Buy a Home in Daybreak, Utah

Clean As You Go

For many of us, cleaning can seem like an overwhelming task. Especially if you’ve just upgraded to one of our Daybreak, Utah homes, you may not be used to taking care of your new space.

A good way to ward off the anxiety and inertia that can sometimes accompany big messes that need to be cleaned up, avoid these big messes in the first place by cleaning as you go about your day. After you’re done getting ready in the morning, take five minutes to put any hygiene products back where they go and give the sink a quick wipe. When you’re done working at your desk, put away any office supplies you used before you move on to doing something else. At the end of a meal, put the dishes right into the dishwasher rather than leaving them to pile up in the sink. It’s much easier to get into the habit of adding five to 10 minutes of cleanup time to your daily activities than it is to wait until a room looks like a disaster.

Keep Clutter Under Control

The more excess “stuff” you have, the harder it is to keep your home clean. If you find your home cluttered with items that don’t really have a natural place or purpose, this is a sign that you maybe don’t need those items. Plus, having those additional loose items will make cleaning less rewarding. If at the end of tidying up your bedroom you still have a bunch of stuff left out that doesn’t have anywhere to go, the result won’t be as satisfying. Worse, if you have too much clutter piling up between tidying sessions, it’ll make the prospect of cleaning much more daunting.

Luckily, there are some solutions to excess clutter, even for those of us who love to shop. Create a rule for yourself that for everything you bring home, you’ll donate, sell, or toss something in your home that you’re not using.

Get Creative with Storage

If your problem is more a lack of storage space than an excess of unnecessary items, the solution is to get creative with storage. Plastic bins can slide under the bed and hold seasonal clothing, over-the-door organizers can keep beauty and/or office supplies organized, and hooks and mail sorters can keep mail, keys, sunglasses, and other odds and ends under control. Investing in storage solutions will be worth it in the long run.

Maintaining Your New Property in Daybreak, Utah
