Motivate Your Family To Help With Cleaning

Every family has a “boss.” That is the person that keeps things running and makes sure everyone gets what they need to make it through the day. The boss is also in charge of restocking and cleaning. Unfortunately, the boss can often feel like they’re doing everything by themselves without any help. Does that sound familiar? As boss of your family, it is time to get them to pitch in and that begins with motivation. Here’s how to pull it off.

Don’t Micromanage

The task is to clean the tub. You assign that task to your partner or a teen. If the result is a clean tub, then you’ve succeeded. It doesn’t matter how they get there as long as they do. In other words, your family doesn’t need to clean with the same method as you clean as long as the cleaning gets done. You only need to step in if the result isn’t achieved. Before that, let them succeed or fail on their own.

Provide Details

This might seem counterintuitive to avoiding micromanaging but providing details of a task isn’t the same as looking over someone’s shoulder and correcting them at every turn. Consider doing the laundry. This is a task you’ve got down but it might be a first for your teen. Inform them the basics of separating colors and what settings to put the washer/dryer on. It might help to have a laminated checklist posted by the washer.

Have Consequences

If you allow someone to keep stuff in your garage for free, then you can change the terms six months later and start charging storage fees. The same principle applies with motivating your family to help clean. They have to be made aware of the consequences. If it means no TV until the job is done, then state that up front. Remember that not every consequence has to be tied to a punishment. It can also be a reward. A clean house means a trip to the mall.

Great Junk Removal Service For Gotha

A lot of homes and businesses around Gotha were hard hit in the wake of Hurricane Irma. It has taken months to get things back to normal. In some cases, the cleanup effort continues. Once folks took care of their own property, they began to reach out to help neighbors and businesses. That’s what happened at the Nehrling Gardens. They sustained extensive damage during Hurricane Irma. According to supervisors of the garden, they “lost four major oak trees, one huge magnolia tree, several historic palms and up to a dozen other important trees. Half of the bamboo trees snapped off, and many of the new plantings were crushed by falling limbs.” Surprisingly the original home built in the 1880s withstood the storm with minimal damage. The call went out for help and Gotha residents responded.
