Simple Tips to a Clean and Organized Home
With the fast paced nature of life in the 21st century, it’s easy for one to find themselves in the living room surrounded by clutter at the end of the week. This is especially common after moving to a new house. After all, it’s hard enough that one has to work a full-time job, run their homes and unpack boxes without having to think about the stress of organizing the home. Organizing a home is something that is absolutely necessary for peace of mind, relaxation, less stress and very much worth the time as well as energy that you put into it.
In addition, it requires little effort to maintain, and the reward for doing so is beyond monumental! If you don’t get what we are talking about, imagine a scenario…
You have to look for your misplaced keys every morning for 10 minutes. This would translate to better than 60 hours in a year, meaning that you spend almost three days every year just looking for keys!
Being a proactive homeowner and ensuring that your home stays organized is the best way to ensure that you will not lose your sanity and that other members of the household will enjoy the benefits of a structured home. Below we take a look at a few simple tips for clean and organized home.
- A basket by the stairs ensures that someone heading upstairs can pick something that needs to be on the other floor
- Extra bags for trashcans and wastebaskets in the containers helps eliminate the need to store them separately and having to run to and from rooms to get extra bags
- Ensure that in every closet there is a laundry basket
- Hooks on entryways and hallways are a great way to keep things like backpacks, coats, and others off the floor
- Labels are a great way to keep your house organized and they also allow you to access what you need faster
- The countertop in your bathroom can be kept clear by buying shower caddy organizers and keeping everything under the sink. A small magnetic strip under the bathroom counter is a great way to store stuff like tweezers.
- Designate an area near the door where you can store anything you need before you leave the house. This can range from a standalone wardrobe for shoes and coats to a shelf for smaller things like keys.
- A designated area for storing your bills and other important documents can help keep the kitchen and countertops from getting overrun by mail
- This has circulated around the Internet for a while, but it’s brilliant… amazing uses for a Bulldog Clip

“During the month of May I was in a whirlwind of trouble. I had the sale of my fathers house, moving him up to Levittown and getting house ready for settlement deal with. My father is not in good shape and my sisters and I were the ones to deal with the whole mess. On top of that I have severe medical issues myself and settlement came right smack dab in the middle of me getting chemo. I called executive Maids once I realized that I was running out of time and wasn’t going to be able to do any of the cleaning that was necessary. Two days before settlement I called them up knowing that I was probably too late. That they must already be too busy. To my delighted surprise Executive maid did make for my fathers house on such short notice. They sent 3 professional cleaners and they came in and got busy immediately and I didn’t have do a thing! I couldn’t believe how fast the girls took care of the job. It was like they attacked the job. When they were done I felt I got so much more than I thought I did, the place was spotless in less than 3 hours. The biggest thing executive maids did for me was remove the stress. I saw within 10 minutes that the girls had things completely under control and I could relax, the job WAS going to get done. I felt a weight lift off my shoulders. It was worth 5 times what we paid them. Another striking thing about the company was the positive attitude that they had while dealing with a frantic, stressed out customer that they had never heard from before. I would recommend this cleaning company to anyone. You will find they do a more thorough job than we ever could and you’ll find hiring them is the best move you made. Thanks executive maids, you truly eased my m at a terribly hectic time.” Move out Cleaning for parent’s home 5/2013.

How do you pick the right cleaning services from all the cleaning companies you find when searching online?
Doing research on anything takes time and patience. Selecting the best cleaning company in Philadelphia also takes some work. When you do a Google search, the first listings you see are paid results. Everything on the right hand column is also a paid result. After the paid listings, you usually see a Google Maps listing for relevant house cleaning services in the area you live.
So How Do You Choose the Right Cleaning Company to Service Your Home?
The large commercial cleaning companies have the funds to pay for consistent paid search results. Most of the large maid service companies are franchised. There are so many cleaning companies offering cleaning services in Philadelphia and so many that are start-up that are here today and gone tomorrow. The problem here is discerning the right and best company to employ for all your cleaning needs. What are some of the indicators of best cleaning companies? Well, if you are about to hire maids to keep your home spotlessly clean, look for cleaning companies that meet the following thresholds.
Price. Sometimes a budget will force you to choose the lesser expensive company. That said, sometimes, we get what we pay for, as the saying goes. There are many instances where a higher price gets you a better service or product. There are many variables used by cleaning companies to determine the price of a cleaning. Compare prices and services from different cleaning companies.
Privately owned. Best cleaning companies are those that are privately owned. Trust me, hiring a franchised cleaning company can leave you with the worst experience for maid services. If you’re a Philadelphia resident, consider hiring best cleaning services from privately owned companies like Executive Maids. As a matter of fact, private is the way to go since these cleaning companies take personal interests in all their clients cleaning services so as to build on their business and reputation.
Fully insured and bonded maids. Consider all the financial implications in case of any mishaps during a cleaning when choosing cleaning companies for your household. Besides, the legitimate cleaning companies are those with fully bonded and insured maids. It’s too risky to hire uninsured cleaning companies or maids. So folks, if a cleaning company is not willing to show you a certificate of liability, workers compensation and a bond insurance, then you have no business hiring their cleaning services.
Equipment and products. Very few cleaning companies come fully armed with all the cleaning equipment and products. The best cleaning services for you as a resident of Philadelphia or its surrounding counties are those that come with their own equipment and products for the job. Purchasing some cleaning equipment and products can be financially draining. To make sure you are covered for that, why not go for cleaning companies that come fully prepared for the job? Nonetheless, if you would prefer the maids using your own products, Executive Maids is the best cleaning company since apart from having all their cleaning teams fully equipped, they also allow their clients to provide cleaning products. However, the client should give guideline on the use of the products.
Long history. Executive Maids has been cleaning houses in Philadelphia since 1993! Cleaning services from highly experienced maids are always the best. Always go for a cleaning company that has been in this business for a long time. If the company has been in existence for just a few months, do not expect any quality services from them.
Make a phone call. It only takes a few minutes to make a call and get a feel for the company by the representative who speaks with you. A good company knows that customer service is key to its success. This will be indicated by the person that answers your call.
So, Philly…these and of course other factors can be pointers to the best cleaning services. Executive Maids’ reputation as the best cleaning service in Philadelphia has seen them claim Best of Philly Award more than once!

Housekeepers carry out light tasks often while cleaning companies offer a more thorough cleaning service.
