Keeping your house clean is something which requires time, but most of all, it requires will and organizational skills. There are simple ways to create good habits and turn your Vancouver apartment cleaning from a headache into just another item of your daily list. Here are some tips to help you in that quest.

Make your bed daily

The habit of making your bed after getting out of it every morning can be useful in several different ways. First of all, it makes your room look more tidy and organized after just a couple minutes of effort. It also helps you notice all the other areas of the house which need cleaning. And probably the most important part – it helps you start your day effectively, which can help you be more productive throughout the day.

Clean after meals

Eating can create a big mess if you don’t take regular steps to prevent it. You will have dirty dishes and cutlery after each meal, with crumbs lurking under them and on the kitchen carpet. If you clean your dishes immediately after eating, you will need less time than if you create a whole pile in the sink. Pick up the crumbs from the kitchen table and wipe it to remove any possible stain as soon as possible.


A clutter will bother you and hamper your Vancouver apartment cleaning process no matter where it’s located. There are many areas where this can happen, so start by creating a list of locations which need decluttering. If you do this studiously, it will decrease your overall cleaning time in the long run. This is especially true for all countertops in the kitchen and bathroom, which require regular cleaning and dusting.


Do a load of laundry

Doing laundry regularly can really help you in the long run. As the pile of dirty clothes just gets bigger every day, it is best not to leave it too long. A daily load is a much better option that spending the entire weekend sorting out everything that needs to be washed. Start by preparing hampers for different types of laundry and washing a load every day if necessary, setting your washing machine to your preferred time.

Clean on the go

The biggest part of planning your cleaning activities is the regularity. However, since even regular swipe of the house can be tedious, there are small steps to help you along the way. Try to putt all things where they belong and to put away things as you go.

Putting the dirty plates and glasses directly in the sink makes it easier to clean them right away or, if you have a dishwasher, put the directly in it. When taking off your clothes, put the clean ones back on the hangers or shelves and throw the dirty ones in the hampers or straight in your laundry machine.
