7 New Year’s Resolutions for a Happier, Healthier Home in 2022

Clean and Tidy White and Beige Living Room

We are entering the time of the year when most people begin giving up on their New Year’s resolutions. Perhaps work schedules and daily life are getting in the way of your fitness plans for the year, or maybe your family obligations are distracting you from all those books you planned to read. Personal resolutions are at times hard to keep but setting up some feasible New Year’s resolutions for your home can help you streamline your life and have a happier and healthier household in 2022! Check out these seven ideas to get you started.

Declutter and Donate

Right now, is the perfect time to look through everything you own and do some downsizing. Start with your most-used spaces first and go through every item, setting anything you don’t think you need aside. You will be left with fewer items and more space. And all the items you will not be using can be taken to a donation center.


Prepare for Emergencies

Make sure this year is safe for you and your family by doing some due diligence at the start of the year. For example, make sure your carbon dioxide and smoke alarms have new batteries and are working properly. Also, ensure you have at least one fire extinguisher in your home. And make sure you own an emergency kit containing all the essentials like water, food, and flashlights.


Organize, Organize, Organize

After you’ve rid your home of all items that you haven’t been using, it’s time to organize. Coming up with an organization system and sticking to it throughout the year can help your household stay cleaner and your daily life be more efficient. Go through all cabinets and drawers, especially ones in the kitchen and bathroom, and come up with a system for sorting items, so they’re readily available for you to find when you need them. It’s also a good idea to have a dedicated space in the house where things like Wi-Fi passwords and other important information are written down.


Rearrange Furniture

Rearranging your bedroom furniture can elevate your mood and improve space, but it can also allow you to perform a deep cleaning of the area. Capitalize on this opportunity and hire a professional cleaning crew to thoroughly clean places previously covered by furniture. This will help enhance any room’s appearance and provide a cleaner and healthier home for you and your loved ones.


Clean Neglected Areas 

At the beginning of the year, taking the time to check on neglected areas like the tops of shelving units and backs of appliances can help you ensure your home is dirt and mold-free. Doing a deep clean like this at the start of each year can reduce griminess and bacteria overgrowth and get rid of any stale smells. Getting a maid service like Immaculate Clean to perform a deep clean and sanitize your house is best because then you’ll know the clean-up has been done by experts in the field.


Don’t Forget Your Appliances 

Having a happy and healthy home involves paying attention to places that are not visible. For example, it’s important to clean out your dryer’s duct and the filter in your dishwasher. Doing a pre-emptive clean-up can help you ensure all appliance parts are functioning properly. It can also help you avoid dangerous situations like fires started by lint in the dryer’s duct.


Stick to a Schedule

One of the best things you can do for your household moving forward is coming up with a regular cleaning schedule and sticking to it. For example, should the garage be swept once a month or the couch vacuumed weekly? Discussing these cleaning habits with your family can help ensure your home stays clean and healthy throughout the year. Short on time? Not to worry! Professional cleaning companies like Immaculate Clean can expertly perform regular home cleanings for you.
