Why does my Place Look Messy when I Clean so Much?

Cleaning the house is a chore that no many of us like doing. Nevertheless, we have to do it. I have a friend that complains about how she cleans her place of frequently and it always looks messy. I came up with these questions to ask her or anyone in this situation.

  • How big is your house?
  • Are the walls and floors clean?
  • Are the colors of walls and floors light?
  • How many people live in the house?
  • Is your house organized? No shoes, no cloths, and no toys lying around?
  • How many kids do you have?

Answering these questions provides with an idea about the reason as to why a house or apartment that is cleaned frequently looks like it’s not.

Big houses help with the view of empty spaces. Where there is lots of furniture, paintings, ornaments, it can seem to us that the place is not clean. Clean, light floors and walls will also help to see the house cleaner.

When 5 or more people in a house it is impossible not to have objects out of places, and that certainly will give a no clean appearance. Kids, especially if they started to walk and even until they become adults, tend to leave things all over the place, more often if they have not been properly trained.

Even though small houses are easier to clean, they are more inclined to give the impression that they are not clean because things seem to be one on top of the other. To avoid similar situations it is good to buy small furniture, keep things in closets and in the predetermine places.

In regards to how many people are living in a place, the best option to maintain an organized space is assign drawers and closets to put personal things, they will be responsible for their objects to be at their assigned spot.

One thing to keep in mind is how you deal with a dirty house. We cannot be slaves to the day-to-day chores. Yes we have to do the dishes and clean and iron but we cannot let our days and plans be consumed by these menial tasks. We are only to do them to keep a sense of hygiene and well-being, never to battle all the dirt and mess there ever was.
