When there’s a baby in the house, it’s more important to take care of things. Keeping things clean is crucial for health of both body and mind. Raising babies in a clean environment will ingrain the habit of keeping things clean for them and when they’re older they won’t be able to stand having things dirty, which is a good thing!
We owe it to our kids to maintain kitchen cleanliness, bathroom cleanliness, as well as the cleanliness of all the other things we don’t usually think of like the gutters, the roof shingles, the windows, the carpets, and, yes, the ceilings!
So it’s no wonder why stressed mothers love to clean. Having things clean feels great! So for all those things we don’t usually think of, what’s good advice for keeping them clean?
Tips for roof cleaning:
If you don’t have the means or the time to get a ladder and clean your own roof, and if you’re a mother and your partner is too busy, too, then consider hiring professionals to clean your roof. My friend in Victoria BC, for example, highly recommends https://greatervictoriaroofcleaning.com/ for all roof, gutter and window cleaning services. Hiring professionals can be more affordable than one might expect. And this is something you don’t want to neglect, as not removing moss from your roof or leaves from your gutters can cause serious problems to your house down the road.
Tips for carpet cleaning:
Here at Mothers Choice Birth we love giving advice to mothers who need it. Unless you have a carpet cleaning machine around the house, using other means on your own just won’t do. Unless you want to, there’s no reason to use a rag to clean the carpet. So once again we recommend you get some professional help to keep your carpets nice and clean around the house.
And just like for roof cleaning, there’s always a chance to ask around for help. Maybe an uncle is willing to clean your roof, or maybe a neighbor has a carpet cleaner you can borrow. So ask around for help before you spend money hiring professionals!
If you’re worried about your kids getting their new school clothes ready, then there isn’t a better excuse to clean like mad! Mothers cleaning the house is a beautiful thing, and when you have spare time, a glass of wine, some good music, there isn’t a more fun thing to do.
We’d love to share cleaning tips for mothers that you might have. Feel free to contact us and share and have the chance to be featured in your own blog post. But we recommend using the time it takes to email us to clean if your house really needs it. We all don’t have a lot of time, and we don’t wish to use yours. So just know the importance of a clean house for raising children and know that if your house is clean there’s one more reason why everyone should be calling you a great mother!
