Cleaning and Maintenance Home Organization

Back-to-School Cleaning Tips

The mad rush for back-to-school has begun! Now is the time to get the routine down and your home organized, with everything in place.

When kids start back to school, they bring home papers, books, dirty clothes, coats, bags, dirty shoes and more. It’s important to keep things organized or the “homework gets lost” and the dog might get blamed!

The other thing that kids bring home from school is germs! By staying organized and putting everything in its place when they get home, the germs will hopefully stay contained in one area. (We can only hope!)

Shoes: When kids get home, have them take off their shoes in the garage, at the door, or in the mudroom. Leave them there until the next day. It makes it easy to keep dirt off the floor if the shoes are in one place, and it makes it faster to find their shoes the next morning.

Backpacks/Gym Bags: All the kid’s backpacks need to have one destination. They need to take it straight to their room to do the homework later, or leave it by their shoes so they won’t forget to grab it in the morning.

Papers: When they get home from school is a good time to ask for their papers. If you can’t get to it right away, then be sure to ask for the papers during homework time.

Books: Books need to stay in the same space where the backpacks are. If they do their homework in their room, the bookbags need to be in the same place at all times, so that nothing is forgotten in the morning. Wherever the books go, the entire bookbag needs to follow.

Pens/Pencils/Crayons/Markers: There are so many writing utensils for school and for special projects. We recommend keeping a large basket of these items, so that they stay together, but use gallon storage bags for the colored pencils, crayons, and markers to keep them separated.

Craft Supplies: If you have young children in elementary school or middle school, we suggest keeping the craft supplies in a rolling cart that can be moved from room to room. When they are done using it, they can roll it away and store it in the closet. A rolling cart will be really handy to store (or hide) the craft supplies, which can get messy!

Sports Clothing: The clothes from sporting events and practices can get out of hand! There are so many pieces that go with a uniform. We suggest that they change out of their dirty uniform in the bathroom, where they will shower before bed. All of the clothing items will be together in one place (and not scattered all over the home) and that makes it easy to scoop up and wash before the next game.

Sports Items: the sports items need to be brought inside to the garage, or stay in the car for eth next trip. Often times kids will forget to take their sports items and accessories (glove, hat, pads, etc.) This seems to be the worst part of getting them to the game or practice, is running down all the things they are supposed to bring! Designate a place for everything from day one, and don’t change it. Everyone in the family needs to know that spot that you store it in, and enlist the younger kids to help you remember.

House Cleaning: When kids go back to school, back to sports and music lessons, and back to a busy social life, the house can get messy, fast. Basic house cleaning tends to get forgotten and they will build up.

If you need help with the house cleaning, call us! Beyond expectations does cleaning in the areas of Brunswick, St. Simons, Sea Island, Jekyll Island.

If you need house cleaning once a month, weekly, or bi-weekly, Call us today. We would love to help you get more out of life. Just leave the cleaning to us!

5 Benefits of Hiring Professional Cleaning Companies Instead of Independent Cleaners

When it comes to keeping your home clean, there are two main options: hiring a professional cleaning company or an independent cleaner. While both options will get the job done, there are several benefits to choosing a professional cleaning companies instead of independent cleaners. In this blog post, we’ll explore five major benefits of hiring a cleaning company that make it the superior choice.

1) Insured and Bonded

Cleaning companies understand the importance of being protected and doing business with a trustworthy cleaning service. We are fully insured and bonded, so you can rest easy knowing that your property is protected in the event of any unexpected damages.

2) Background Checks

Professional cleaning companies understand how important it is to trust those you allow inside your home. That’s why we make sure our cleaners are trustworthy by carefully vetting them with background checks and reference checks before we take them on as employees.

Independent cleaners, on the other hand, will leave the burden of determining their integrity and credibility to you.

3) Trained and Efficient

When you hire a cleaning company, you can rest assured that their team of cleaners are both trained and efficient. We select experienced professionals and train them further to ensure that they meet the highest quality standards.

4) Reliability

Cleaning companies also understand that your time is valuable and we strive to be dependable and consistent. Unlike independent cleaners, we have a team of cleaners and a backup system in place, so if your regular cleaner gets sick or can’t make it to your scheduled appointment, another member of our team will be there to clean your home.

5) Customized and Flexible Service

With professional cleaning companies, you can feel free to customize your cleaning. We offer weekly, bi-weekly, and monthly cleanings as well as standard cleaning, deluxe deep cleaning, and periodic or add-on tasks.

Also, professional cleaning companies can provide as many people as necessary to complete your home or office cleaning quickly and efficiently. Our experienced teams are trained to work together and get the job done right.

We understand that you don’t want to waste your valuable time waiting for one independent cleaner to finish the job. Independent cleaners can be in your home or office for 2 hours or more and it still might not be thoroughly cleaned.

6) No Tax Worries

When you hire an independent cleaner, the government may determine that you are the cleaner’s employer and expect you to withhold and pay taxes for them. Professional cleaning companies, on the other hand, pay taxes for their employees, leaving you with one less thing to worry about.

7) Easily Dispute Issues

The buffer of having an office to call about cleaning issues (price, quality of work, etc.) makes it less stressful for customers and more effective for dealing with problems. Professional cleaning companies have managerial staff to provide much more efficient dispute resolution than an individual cleaning service. With an independent cleaner, any issues have to be discussed directly with your cleaner, which can be hard for customers and may even risk the cleaner not showing up for future appointments.

6 Reasons to Keep Your Bedroom Clean

Your bedroom should be the cleanest room in your house, which means you should take proper steps to ensure that it stays that way. If you let your bedroom get messy and disorganized, you’ll find yourself stressed out, depressed, and even less motivated to clean up the rest of your house later on. Here are six reasons from Beyond Expectations, sharing why keeping your bedroom clean should be a priority in your life and how you can do it effectively and efficiently every day!

1) Sleep Better

When you leave clothes, shoes, and other items in our bedroom, you are not optimizing your space. And if your bedroom isn’t clean and organized it can actually have a negative impact on your mood and sleep. A messy bedroom makes you less likely to want to sleep there, reducing the time and quality of the sleep you get each night. You may even feel anxious because of the clutter. This is not optimal for better sleep.

A simple daily habit like keeping your bedroom clean can do wonders for helping you get a good night’s rest. Not only does being more organized help us feel more prepared and confident in our day-to-day lives, but it can also have an immediate impact on our health and happiness levels (and thus, our overall ability to cope with stress). Set some time aside to clean your bedroom each day, little by little. This will be worth it when you can come home, relax, and rest well in your bed!

2) Declutter

A cluttered bedroom is distracting and can throw off your focus, especially if you work from home. Furthermore, when your bedroom is cluttered or dirty it’s likely your whole house is too. This not only affects you but other members of your household as well. Bedrooms are intimate spaces; they should be private, clean, and free from clutter.

Minimize clutter! Donate or resell any old clothes that do not fit, are not your style, and so on. This also applies to other items you may have grown out of in your bedroom, such as decor, equipment for sports and hobbies, and so on.

3) Boost Productivity

Clean rooms are shown to heighten productivity as they heighten concentration and creativity. Get more in less time by keeping your bedroom clean! You will be able to find exactly what you need when you need it, which is great when you are getting ready, running late, and so on. You will no longer have to rummage through and look for the items you need to be productive. You will also feel less anxious about the mess if there is not one. Hence, you can focus on your 2023 goals and be more productive!

4) Save Time and Money

If you want to save time and money make sure your bedroom is always clean and tidy. You’ll be able to find what you need quickly, which will save you time in the morning when it comes to getting ready for work or school. You’ll also be able to find things like your wallet or keys, which reduces frustration and ensures you will get where you need to be on time!

Additionally, keeping your bedroom neat and organized will help save you money because you won’t have to replace items as often. For example, not losing your phone charger, favorite t-shirt, and so on will save you money since you will not have to buy another one of what you already had (but lost).

5) Prevent Illness

Regularly washing your bedsheets, vacuuming your room, and so on can help prevent dust, debris, hair, sweat, and so on from accumulating and impacting your health and wellness, too. Prevent illnesses and enjoy the several benefits of a good night’s rest by prioritizing cleanliness in the bedroom.

6) Wake Up on the Right Side of the Bed

Wake up, make your bed, and pick up after yourself! This will allow you to wake up on the right side of the bed and set a positive tone for the rest of your day. It will impact your mood, the quality of your work, and even your interactions with others. You are bound to take your quality of life to the next level in 2023 if you prioritize a clean bedroom and better sleep!

7 Tips to Keep Your Living Room Clean in 2023

The living room is one of the most important rooms in your home. It’s where guests will first enter, and it’s where you can relax with your friends or family after a long day at work. In essence, it is where most of your memories are made and laughs are shared. Hence, it’s extra important to keep your living room clean and organized so that it inspires relaxation and good vibes. Here are 7 simple ways to keep your living room clean and tidy in 2023.

1) Get rid of anything that stinks.

First things first – get rid of anything that stinks! There may be a few things around your living room that smell pretty bad. Old trash, worn rugs, dirty clothes, food remains – all of these can pile up and start smelling pretty badly after a while.

If you have more than one garbage can in your home, make sure they’re all cleaned out at least once a week. Also, try to opt for garbage cans with lids. Add fresheners or even a couple drops of essential oils at the bottom of the garbage can bag. This will keep foul odors from dispersing in your home.

Additionally, it’s important to clean up spills immediately; when liquids sit for too long, they can seep into rugs and carpets or cause permanent damage to floors. These spills can also contribute to odor in the long term, so be on the lookout and be proactive!

2) Designate and design.

The best way to keep your living room clean is to have designated space for items and design your space in a functional but fashionable way. For instance, keep all of your electronics and wires in one place, books on a shelf, and house plants on side tables or near windows. Decide where you want everything to go and then be sure to put it back.

Having designated space for items can make a big difference. It’s easy to lose things when they’re scattered around a room, and if you need something specific but can’t find it, chances are it will cause frustration. Like your TV remote!

Designating areas for items gives them an obvious place to go, making them easier to store and access. Plus, your living will look and feel much better!

3) Adopt the “one in, one out” rule.

Some people have a hard time letting go of an item that they’ve grown attached to. But rather than allowing sentimental attachments over discarding items to keep your living room from staying clean, remember why and how they came into your life in the first place.

In most cases, you will find your living room feeling a lot less cluttered if you approach it with a philosophy of one in, one out. That is, for every new item you bring into your living room (whether it be a decoration or furniture), an old item should likely be removed from that space.

This rule can be applied to all sorts of things—books, clothing, decor, etc.—and will help keep your home from getting too cluttered. It can even apply in reverse. For example, for every candle you use up and throw out, you can buy just one more! You might not feel the need to apply this rule quite yet; however, once you do, it can hold you accountable in your efforts of organizing the living room.

4) Use baskets or bins.

Baskets and bins are great for keeping things in their place. Because they come in so many sizes, colors, and textures, they can also double as decor.

So, rather than leaving books, magazines and newspapers lying around, tuck them into baskets. You can get a set of baskets or bins, and then use them to organize different items that often are laying around your living room.

This is especially great if you have kids or pets, because then you can put their colorful toys all in one corner of the living room. This allows them to join in on family time and play in the common space, but also makes cleaning up after much easier!

5) Set aside time each day to clear clutter.

Schedule time for you to clean and organize your living room each day. This can be as little as 5 minutes or as much as 30, depending on your lifestyle and how often your space gets cluttered. But by setting aside some time each day to clear clutter, you’ll prevent it from piling up and making a bigger mess than necessary.

You might find that having an empty and organized space makes it easier to stay organized throughout the rest of your home. And if you do end up with extra time at one point during your cleaning session, perhaps see if there are any other areas in need of attention.

Consider setting an alert on your phone to remind you when it’s time to clean. You can also make cleaning part of your evening routine, so that you can sleep without a worry and wake up in a clean home. Moreover, if you don’t have the time to clean your home, then it might be a good idea to contact a professional cleaning service, like Beyond Expectations, to help!

6) Donate what you don’t use.

There’s a good chance that you have at least one item in your home that hasn’t been used in quite some time. Maybe it was something you purchased on a whim and never used, or maybe you received it as a gift and simply don’t like it. Take an inventory of your items, find those things you don’t use anymore and donate them. Not only will donating them benefit someone else, but it will make room for things that you actually need and make your living space more functional.. It might be hard to part with certain items at first. But remember: If you haven’t touched it in months, chances are you won’t miss it.

It’s easy to hold onto things out of a fear that you may need them someday, but let go of these possessions and clear some room for newer items. Having fewer possessions allows you to maintain your home more easily. If you have too many belongings, they can make it harder for you to keep your living room clean and organized. Aim for simplicity by donating those unused items.

7) Schedule regular cleanings with your partner, family members or roommates.

Having a set schedule and making cleaning an expected, regular occurrence will keep your living room from piling up with clutter. Plus, sharing cleaning duties with others is a great way to spend time together while getting chores done. Even cleaning is more fun (and faster) when everyone does it together!

Contact Us!

Finally, trust the professionals and contact us! Our residential cleaners know exactly how to treat your home, as they are well trained and specialize in their cleaning roles. We will help you maintain cleanliness in your living room, as well as the rest of your home. With less time doing chores, you’ll have more time to enjoy and make those memories!

New Year, New Goals & A Clean Home

With the New Year comes a chance to start fresh and improve upon yourself in every aspect of your life, including your home, routine, and even your health. The new year also gives you the opportunity to set goals and make plans to achieve them; here are some tips from Beyond Expectations on how to clean your home and develop the habit of maintaining cleanliness, as you work to achieve your New Year’s resolutions!

Start with a clean slate

It’s a new year and time for a fresh start. You can’t get started with all the new goals you want to do if your house is still in the mess it was last week. So let’s clean up! Before we get started, take a deep breath and focus on what you’re doing this time around to create habits that will stick with you in the long-term. These are going to be different than what you’ve done before because now it’s all about changing your mindset from one of ‘clean’ being a chore to something that feels good, like taking care of yourself. When you feel refreshed and good about yourself, other things will fall into place much more easily. Focus on mindfulness and energize yourself!

Set your goals

What are your goals for the new year? Maybe you want to learn a new skill, start a new business, or get in shape. Whatever your goals are, it’s important to write them down and log them in a journal. Put sticky notes on your mirror or around your room. These reminders will be great motivation throughout the day! This will help you stay on track and accountable. Plus, telling someone else about your goals will help keep you motivated. Find an accountability partner and work together to motivate each other.

Declutter your home

One way to start the year off right is by decluttering your home and getting organized. This will help you feel more relaxed and in control of your life. Plus, it will be easier to focus on achieve your goals if your environment is clean and orderly. Here are some tips to help you get started:

1. Start with one section or room at a time. Don’t try to do everything at once or you’ll get overwhelmed.
2. Cleaning does not have to be a daunting task that takes up your whole weekend. Set a timer for 15-20 minutes whenever you get a chance and see how much you can get done in that short amount of time.
3. Some great places to start are the kitchen cabinets, refrigerators, and pantries. Throw out any expired produce and snacks that are no longer edible, to prevent bacteria and mold from growing in these spaces. Similarly, you can dispose of any cosmetics, cleaning products, and so on that may be in your bathroom or storage space.
4. Another place where clutter piles up is desks, shelves, and even the dining tables. Find a new place for your mail and loose leaf papers. Organize any valuables, and so on!
5. Finally, the closet. Donate any clothes that no longer fit you to a local charity organization. You can support orphanages, domestic violence and homeless centers, and so on. Find a cause that resonates with you!

Once you have assessed your space and decluttered, it will be easier to organize and maintain cleanliness!

Create an organizing system

One way to help you achieve your goals is to create an organizing system. This can be as simple as creating a list of things you need to do each day or setting up a specific place for all your important papers.

An organizing system can help you in many ways. It can save you time by helping you find things quickly, it can reduce stress by making it easier for you to stay on top of things, and it can help you be more productive overall.

Here are some tips for creating an organizing system that is personalized and will work for you:

1. Keep it simple. The more complicated your system is, the less likely you are to stick with it.
2. Make it flexible. As your life changes, so should your system.
3. Use something tangible for your system. For example, some people like Google calendars (the app), or a written calendar. Some people like using spreadsheets like Excel and trackers. Others like to keep it old school with a paper to-do list. Nothing beats the satisfaction of crossing off the task when you are done!

Focus on consistency and accountability

One way to help motivate ourselves is by setting smaller goals that lead up to our main goal. This emphasizes consistency and accountability, which are both essential for forming habits until they feel like second nature to us. Start somewhere and take baby steps to get closer and closer to where you want to be. Try not to miss a single day and hold yourself accountable. Self discipline is a key, but you can also find a support group or accountability partner. Confiding in someone and having their support can also go a long way!

Encourage and reward yourself

The New Year is a great time to start fresh and set some new goals. But it can be tough to stay on track. That’s why it’s important to encourage and reward yourself along the way. Set up small goals and small rewards, as well as larger goals and larger rewards. Treating yourself as the months pass and having something to look forward to, like a spa day or buying a new book will allow you to stick to your goals with extra conviction and motivation. Plus, you will be able to reinvest in yourself and your hobbies!

How to Do a Post-Holiday Home Refresh in 7 Easy Steps

The holidays are over and it’s time for a post-holiday home refresh! Once the decorations have been taken down, the house will probably look a little bare. With a little effort, you can easily give your home a post-holiday clean-up and a fresh start in the New Year. In this blog post, we’ll show you how to do a post-holiday home refresh in 7 easy steps. From decluttering to cleaning and organizing, we’ll guide you through the process and have you feeling like you’re living in a brand-new home.

1) Take down all holiday decor

The first step in this process is taking down all of your holiday decors. This post-holiday cleaning may take some time and effort, but it will give you a chance to get rid of any decorations that are no longer needed or wanted.

Start by taking down your tree, lights, garland, and other decorations. As you go, make sure to check for any items that need to be replaced or repaired before being put away. Don’t forget to vacuum up any fallen pine needles and, if applicable, make sure to clean out your fireplace as well.

2) Organize and declutter

One of the most important tasks you’ll need to do is organize and declutter your space. This can help you to create a calming and inviting atmosphere in your home and make it easier to find items that you need.

– To get started, go through one room at a time and sort through your belongings. Group similar items that need to be relocated into categories, such as kitchen items, clothing, books, toys, etc.

– As you go, decide which items to keep and which to get rid of. It’s okay to let go of things that don’t bring you joy or serve a purpose anymore. Consider donating them or selling them online if they are still in good condition.

– Invest in organizational tools and storage solutions. Baskets and bins can help you store items neatly and easily. Use labels to make sure you can find what you need quickly. Check out this Better Homes & Gardens article for examples of this clutter-reducing technique.

– Make use of vertical space. Wall shelves, over-the-door racks, and hanging organizers can free up floor space and help maximize storage potential.

– Keep only what you need in each room. Don’t forget to declutter drawers, closets, and cabinets too!

3) Rearrange your furniture

One way to give your home a major makeover without spending any money is to rearrange your furniture. Rearranging furniture can be a daunting task, but by taking it one step at a time you can have your space looking new and improved in no time.

– Start with the Big Pieces – Begin by moving the large pieces of furniture such as couches, beds, and tables. This will give you a good idea of how the room will look with different configurations.

– Create Focal Points – Think about what you want to be the focal point of the room and arrange furniture around it. This could be a fireplace, television, window, or art piece.

– Use Storage Solutions – Consider incorporating storage solutions into your arrangement. Bookshelves and cabinets can provide functional storage solutions that look stylish too!

– Let There Be Light – Take advantage of natural lighting when rearranging furniture. Move pieces away from windows to allow sunlight to fill the room.

4) Update your bedding and towels

Refreshing your bedding and towels is an easy way to make your bedroom or bathroom feel new again.

Consider replacing old and tired bedding with a new set in colors that match the season. If you’re tight on budget, try refreshing your existing bedding by adding some throw pillows or a cozy throw blanket for a whole new look.

In addition to replacing bedding, take a look at your towels. Replacing old and worn towels with new ones can help bring life back into your bathroom. Choose bright and cheery colors to add some warmth and brightness to the room. And if you don’t have a lot of money to spend on new towels, you can always opt for an inexpensive bath mat to refresh the look of the space.

5) Paint or add new wall art

Another way to really make your home feel refreshed is to paint your walls or add some new wall art. You can use this opportunity to give your home a whole new look or just add a few touches here and there.

If you want to take on a bigger project, consider painting one or more accent walls in your home. This is an easy way to give your home a facelift, and it can be completed relatively quickly depending on the size of the space. Plus, you can choose from a wide variety of colors to create the exact look you want for your home.

If you don’t want to go through the hassle of painting your walls, you can also make changes to your wall art. You can find pieces of art to fit any budget, and it’s easy to switch out pieces over time to give your space a constantly evolving look. Plus, you can find artwork that complements the other elements in your room and adds interest to the space. Here’s a helpful YouTube video that shares the easiest way to choose and decide where to hang your wall art.

6) Accessorize with fresh flowers or plants

Adding some fresh flowers or plants will not only provide a beautiful aesthetic to any room but will also bring in some much-needed natural energy.

Fresh flowers are an inexpensive way to brighten up any area. They can be used as the perfect accent to any style of décor. Whether you go for something more classic like a bouquet of roses, or something more modern like succulents, adding the right kind of floral arrangement can really pull a room together.

Plants are another great way to add some life to your post-holiday home cleaning. Not only do they look aesthetically pleasing, but they also offer numerous health benefits. Studies have shown that indoor plants can reduce stress, boost mood and purify the air we breathe. Check out this YouTube video of the best, easy-care indoor plants.
