Back-to-School Home Cleaning Tips

Start the Season Right With Tri-County Chem-Dry

As summer winds down and the new school year approaches, homes across Kings, Tulare, and Fresno Counties resonate with excitement and anticipation. It’s not just the season for new school supplies and meeting old friends; it’s also a fantastic time to refresh and reorganize our living spaces. Here are five essential cleaning tips to help you transition into the academic year with ease, plus a bonus tip on how Tri-County Chem-Dry can lighten the load for you.

1. Entryway Elegance

Every home’s entryway is a bustling hub during the school season, seeing a daily parade of shoes, backpacks, and jackets. To keep this space inviting and clutter-free, start with a designated drop zone. Install a stylish yet functional shoe rack or tray where kids can immediately place their footwear.

Adjacent to this, consider wall-mounted organizers or baskets to hold backpacks and outerwear. This systematic approach ensures a smooth morning rush and an equally efficient evening return.

2. Stellar Study Spaces

With the importance of homework and projects, a dedicated study space is crucial. Begin by decluttering, keeping the essentials, and storing away distractions. Next, think of natural light; position the desk close to a window if possible.

A well-lit, clutter-free study environment promotes concentration and reduces strain. For those late-night study sessions, invest in a good-quality desk lamp with adjustable brightness.

3. Lunchbox Central

Dedicate a small section of your kitchen for lunch preparations. Here, use labeled bins or drawers to store lunchbox containers, wraps, water bottles, and reusable cutlery.

Adjacent to this, create a snack station. Fill clear containers with healthy snack choices, allowing kids to quickly see and select their preferred snack. This organization not only speeds up morning routines but also encourages healthy eating habits.

4. Blissful Bedrooms

The bedroom is a sanctuary for rest, especially after a long school day. Start with a simple declutter, removing items that aren’t necessary. Create a dedicated space for school materials and books.

Promote a daily routine: perhaps a quick tidy-up before bedtime, ensuring clothes are in the hamper, books are on the shelf, and toys are stored away. This routine fosters responsibility and ensures a serene environment for sleep.

5. Play Area Perfection

Whether it’s a corner of the living room or a dedicated room, play areas should be inviting and orderly. Rotate toys to keep the play experience fresh and minimize clutter. Organize toys in labeled bins or baskets, encouraging children to return items after use.

Encourage a playtime routine: before moving to a new activity or toy, the previous one should be packed away. This not only keeps the area tidy but also instills a sense of discipline in young minds.
