The Busy Traveler’s Guide to Keeping Their Home Together

  • Busy travelers need to keep their homes clean, too

With Memorial Day Weekend coming up, many people are going to find their minds drifting away. The unofficial start to summer, this is often one of the busiest travel weekends of the year. And as any busy traveler or weekend warrior will tell you? When you’re off on your latest adventure — whether canoeing in the Northwest, whisking through Europe by train, or relaxing by an aqua blue ocean with a tropical drink in hand — the very last thing you want to be thinking about is coming back to a messy home!

This is your time to soak up the sun – so let us handle the cleaning before, during, and after your trip!

As numerous studies have shown, there are many proven benefits to getting away from it all, if even for a few days. There’s nothing like a vacation to help you relax, unwind, and come back with a more productive mindset. With the busy schedule you have, managing a job, family, and keeping your home together, you deserve a break. And if you’re bringing the whole family along, the benefits of travel are even better. A little time away from home can help you and yours get some much-needed bonding time, and bring the family closer together.

Of course, though, being a busy traveler can still bring some stress. Whether you’re traveling for work or you’re focused on enjoying your time away, it’s still easy to find yourself worrying about your home staying clean and organized when you’re on the go.

Often, in the busy flurry of packing, organizing, and rushing out the door, many of us leave our homes in disarray. And when you get back? Well, that mess is still going to be sitting there, waiting for you — and seriously harshing your vacation vibes, right when you should be settling back into the swing of things.

So what’s the best way to keep your life at home together while you’re off reaping all the rewards from your adventure? For the busy traveler who wants to really relish their time away, here are a few ways you can keep your home together:

Stay Organized Before and After You Go

Every frequent flyer has a list of things to do before they head out the door. In addition to your vacation packing checklist, you may also want to create a personal home cleaning and organizational checklist. What absolutely needs tending to before you leave? Are there are any maintenance or upkeep tasks that need to be done while you’re away? And what responsibilities or chores do you know you want to come home to?

Our philosophy? The cleaner you get your space ahead of time, the easier it will be to get your packing done, keep your home organized, and – best of all – feel less stressed during your trip and once you return. Not only will you have a lighter load before leaving, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that while you’re away, your home is organized and together. And when you return from your getaway? You may already feel overwhelmed by the task of unpacking or getting back to work. There’s no need to add cleaning to that list. Instead, you’ll return from your trip to find an immaculate space waiting for you.

Super Busy Traveler? Keep Your Space Clean And Tidy Between Trips

If you’re a business traveler who’s often on the road (or the rails, or the sky), or if you’re an adventure junkie who finds themselves away from home more often than not, it’s important to make sure your space is always clean, functional, and ready for your return.

Are you the kind of person who returns with your bags and belongings and, before you know it, you’re already off again? This process can be stressful if you don’t have time to unpack and put everything in its place. The more your focus on keeping your home cleaned before you leave, the more you get to enjoy it when you are home.

Regular assistance from a professional cleaning service can help you keep your space clean and welcoming. If you sublet or rent out your space as a vacation rental listing while you’re on the move, a professional crew can also make sure you’re getting the most out of your investment. One more tip? If you’re a true travel and adventure seeker, you may want to keep a designated space for some of your gear, like your garage or attic. Take care to keep these storage spaces tidy, so you never have to struggle before your next trip!

Keep Up With the Day to Day While Away

Ever come home from a pleasant and relaxing vacation to a mind-numbing stack of mail, or an inbox full of unopened messages? We feel your pain!

It’s easy to forget about the minor things when you’re solely focused on your next adventure. But it’s a rude awakening when you get back home.

Before you go, take a few simple steps to help streamline your enjoyment while you’re away, and make the transition easier when you get back home. As an example? Have a plan for tending to that incoming mail, like contacting a neighbor or friend to keep the mailbox empty and gather your mail in one place. You might rope this same friend into watering the plants, and keeping an eye on your home’s security while you’re away. Even small steps like these can help keep everything in flow and well organized, making it easier to step back into everyday life when you get back home.
