1. Use Welcome and Walk-Off Mats
When entering the house take the time to wipe off the bottom of shoes on a quality door mat. Try to get one that is of a high quality like a duro turf mat. These mats not only wipe off the dirt and debris but also hold the dirt inside. You would be amazed at how much difference a higher quality door mat will make in keeping floors and carpets clean.

2. Try Not to Let Things Pile Up
Nothing is worse than taking on a cleaning project that seems to have grown over a few days. Just like grass grows faster after a heavy rain, so too do dishes and clothes multiply if ignored over many days.
It's much easier to wash a small load daily (or every other day) than it is to wash a mountain of clothes that has grown due to a week or two of neglect. This is also true of dishes.
In my house we have an electric dishwasher (I am sure to do as well) but my wife and I almost always clean dishes by hand if the meal we prepared was small. After dinner we do the washing together and it only takes about 5 minutes. The kitchen is always clean using this approach.
3. Get Everyone Involved in the Cleaning Projects
Cleaning can be fun and we had contests with actual prizes as we worked together. Use you imagination and get the whole clan involved. The despair will be a joy!
Of course when you have deep cleaning projects like carpet, upholstery, and tile that needs to be cleaned ... call me.
