Now that the year 2020 is officially upon us, there are all sorts of New Year’s resolutions that many people have likely made by this time, with one of the more common and popular involving something about the home.

Here are three of the most useful New Year’s resolutions for your own home that you can consider making note of.

Weekly Cleaning Routine

Consider establishing a weekly cleaning system as a way to help with keeping your home clean on a regular basis. For instance, place your dirty dishes in the dishwasher every night, place your dirty clothes in the hamper, and put all misplaced items in their correct locations. Additionally, each week, focus on one specific type of cleaning at a time, as this will make everything go faster.

Substance Testing

Ensure that your home is as safe and sound as possible. More specifically, take the time to check your home for dangerous substances such as radon and carbon monoxide. Test kits for both of these substances can be obtained from your local hardware store for approximately $20 and $40, respectively.

Declutter Your Home

Take the time to declutter your home and get rid of items that you don’t use or wear. Throw these items away or donate them to charity if they are able to be, as other people who live in your area of residence will likely be able to make good use of them in their own homes. Not only will you be doing a good deed, but you will also be working to make your home much safer.
