Out of all the rooms in your house, your bedroom represents probably the single place where you can relax, be intimate, or watch Netflix, relax, and then be intimate. (And not necessarily in that order, either.)
Anyway, because of this property of bedrooms, making sure it’s always in a spic ‘n’ span condition is an important prerequisite for having a leisurely time when you get there after a hard day of work.
Now, cleaning your bedroom is not nuclear physics, so you shouldn’t worry too much about getting something wrong. What you should care about, though, is neglecting to clean it regularly, which can make the clothes pile up, the floors can get horribly dirty, and the air is also going to suffer as a result. (That’s the ‘quality of air’, of course. Not just ‘air’ as a substance.)
In this article, we’re going to offer you some suggestions that you can make into rules for cleaning your bedrooms quickly and easily. You can make a sort of a checklist out of it if you find it easier to follow that way.
Right then folks, without further ado, here’s the deal.
Most Important Rules for Cleaning Your Bedroom
Take Out the Trash
As you already know, taking out the trash is the most important aspect of cleaning something up.
Whether it’s taking care of your kitchen, ensuring your garage doesn’t reek of spilled oil and other liquids, gathering the remnants of what was once a bag of chips or some other container or an object you no longer need and discarding it is what cleaning is all about.
Now, why would your bedroom be any different?
So, if you’ve allowed the trash to pile up in your bedroom and you haven’t taken it out for a while, chat it up, buy it a drink, see what happens…
Nah, we’re joking of course – gathering it up, take it out, and proceed to the next step.
Amass Your Laundry Pile
Another series of objects that can assume the shape of a small hillock and that often assumes the appearance of a pile of trash – would be your laundry pile.
Laundry is probably the second most ‘pileable’ stack of objects in your bedroom, so making sure you fold it and throw it in the washing machine once it gets proper high (or, ideally – before that) would be of utmost importance for not only keeping your bedroom clean, but also declutter it, too.
Laundry piles aren’t that difficult to take care of, as long as you remember what needs to be thrown into the washing machine, and what are the clothing items you’ve freshly taken out of it, but forgot to fold. If you can’t remember – there’s always the age-aulde smell test. (It ain’t the fanciest way of sorting through laundry, but it does work, and you’ve sort of brought it on yourself.)
Clean Your Carpets
If the air is stale in your room and your socks are getting dirty seemingly out of nowhere, chances are – it’s your carpet and you need to take care of it.
Now, there is a number of ways you can make this happen.
For example, the easiest thing to do if you have a vacuum cleaner would be to simply zoom about with a vacuum cleaner for a while and so pick up the dirt and dust on the carpets quickly and easily. On the other hand, if you can’t do it on your own, or you don’t have the time, you can always hire a team providing domestic carpet cleaning services to do it for you.
One of the best ways to ensure you’re be able using the majority of your free space for a good purpose would be to get rid of as much unnecessary clutter as possible.
This includes old notebooks you aren’t using anymore, the regular trash, as well as some of the pieces of furniture that doesn’t serve any purpose anymore. For example, an old fauteuil that you don’t sit in, but has been there for years for no real reason should definitely go.
In general, avoid filling in space with stuff just for the sake of making your room seem more well-rounded and full. It’s better to have a half-empty room for a while and gradually figure out what you need than to clutter it with any old rubbish just because you can’t stand to dwell in a room that’s not filled with items.
All things considered, cleaning up your bedroom doesn’t have to be a difficult task if you have patience and you’re willing to invest a tiny bit of effort now and then. More often than not, it is as simple as taking out the trash or folding your laundry. Throw in an occasional vacuuming session, throw out the old stuff you no longer use, and Bob’s your uncle.
