Handy Tips to get Your Kids To Clean Their Rooms

Trying to entice, force or demand that our kids clean and tidy their bedrooms is an age-old problem that just about everyone has to deal with at some point. While some kids are clean and tidy by nature, for the majority the thought of having to tidy their room or, heaven forbid, actually do some dusting and vacuuming, is akin to asking them to go to the dentist and have their teeth drilled without anaesthetic.

Kid Vacuuming a Capet

So what are some ways children and teenagers can be encouraged to clean their rooms?


This one’s a bit tongue in cheek, but bribery can work to a point. Offering money or favours in return for your kids performing a task they should do anyway could just create a precedent where they expect to be rewarded every time they do something, or every time you ask them to do something. This tactic can work, but only use it sparingly.

Post a Cleaning Schedule In Their Room

This will at least serve as a reminder. Don’t make the schedule intense. Have something like make the bed every day, put dirty clothes in the laundry hamper daily, dust and vacuum once every two weeks, tidy the room once a week. They may not stick to the cleaning schedule, but with it in full view they may at least feel inspired to tidy up more regularly.

Set a Good Example

There is little point demanding our children be clean and tidy if we aren’t. If they see you cleaning routinely and keeping your own bedroom in tip top shape especially, at least they will know you are leading by example and you can actually speak with real authority when you demand they do the same.

Do Chores Together

The first few times help them clean their rooms so they experience a sense of teamwork and know what’s expected of them when you ask them to perform the task in future. Most importantly, praise them for a job well done. We all respond to positive words like this, so don’t forget to offer praise on their cleaning efforts. This will also help to instil a sense of pride in your child. Hopefully they will become quite proud of their cleaning efforts, as well as their clean and tidy bedrooms.

Cull Items With a Passion

The less clutter there is in your kids’ rooms, the easier it will be to keep them clean and tidy. While they might whine and moan when you want to toss out old, broken toys and the like, do it anyway. Cleaning their bedroom will seem way less daunting if there is very little clutter around. Plus, the room will remain tidier for the lack of possessions.

Call In Professional Cleaners Regularly

Even if you do have a good routine in place and the kids are learning to keep their rooms in order, it’s still a good idea to call in a professional cleaning service for a really thorough clean every so often.

Whether you need professional cleaners to come to your home for regular cleaning, carpet cleaning, perhaps a bond clean, or your office needs a thorough going over, you want to make sure the cleaners you call in to do the job are both experienced and thorough. Not all cleaning companies are created equal and not everyone who calls themselves a cleaner takes enough pride in their work to produce excellent and consistent results.

Let’s look at a few things you can do to ensure you choose the right cleaning company.

Cleaning Windows

Experience and Expertise

Everyone has to start somewhere, but if you want results, you don’t want to hire a cleaner who has only just started; not unless they have years of experience behind them prior to commencing business. You want a cleaning company that has the experience in the facets of cleaning that you require, and you also want to know they have the expertise to produce quality results.

Do Your Research

In order to be able to determine if a cleaning company can deliver on the points above, you need to research them. Find a company in your area, study their website, determine what experience they have and what tasks they specialise in. A good idea then is to search the internet for genuine testimonials and reviews from satisfied customers.

Carpet Cleaning

Carpet cleaning really is an art in itself when it comes to the cleaning trade. Carpets are expensive, so you don’t want to hire fly-by-night cowboy carpet cleaners. You want to source a cleaning business you can trust to do the job properly; a business you can rely on. If carpets are not cleaned by someone who knows what they are doing and only uses the best equipment and cleaning products, the carpets could end up looking worse than they were before being cleaned.

At New Life Cleaning on the Sunshine Coast, while we are a full-service cleaning company, our speciality is quality carpet cleaning. Customer satisfaction is what our business prides itself on, so you can be guaranteed we will do superb work every time.
