Can You Motivate Your Family To Clean? Yes!

Anyone who gets a surprise call from a friend who says they’d like to “drop by” goes into a cleaning panic. The rush is on to quickly clear out the clutter and do a fast vacuum. Hopefully, the bathroom isn’t in too bad of a shape either. If family members are around, then they can be recruited into the fast cleanup. Of course, there wouldn’t be a need for a panic cleanup if things were already clean. To make that happen, you’ll need to motivate your family to clean. Here’s how to get it done:

Be a Good Example

By their very definition, parents lead by example. Your kid will always follow your lead and that includes with cleaning. It’s not just about keeping the kitchen clean but also you’re bedroom and bathroom. If not, then you can expect a retort along the lines of, “Why should I clean my bedroom if you’re not cleaning yours?”

Don’t Micromanage

If you have teens pitching in with the cleaning, then you don’t want to micromanage them. Give them their assignments and a deadline. Then let them carry it out. Yes, when they say the job is done you can inspect and correct but if you’re going to stand over them and watch their every move, then they’ll be asking you why aren’t you doing the cleaning.

Don’t Get Angry

There will be many times when you request something gets done and it doesn’t happen. Then you ask again. Still nothing. Now the anger is building. That is what you want to keep in check. Failure to clean should have consequences. If your teen has a list of chores tied to their allowance and the jobs don’t get done, then no allowance. The goal is to be consistent. Don’t withhold one week and then give in the next.

Start Junk Free

It will also help motivate your family to clean if they can see what a junk free house looks like. Holding onto old clothes, computers, DVD players and television sets adds to the clutter of a home. All of that needs to be hauled away in order for your cleaning to start fresh. You can turn that hauling task over to Junk King Dayton.

Dependable Junk Removal In Oakwood

Recently, a grain silo collapsed north of Oakwood in New Carlisle. The collapse spilled 10,000 tons of corn onto Ohio 571. It was a tidal wave of corn that forced roads to close for several days. Several power lines will knocked over by the force of the tumbling corn and cause outages throughout the community. Local residents describe a loud sound like thunder, lots of rumbling and then the lights went out. The Ohio Department of Transportation quickly dispatched crews to handle the cleanup efforts.
