When I started working at my uncle's restaurant, I knew that there were a few things I needed to adjust. First and foremost, I decided to start working on cleaning things up. It had been quite awhile since the place had been cleaned thoroughly, so I focused on sanitation and garbage removal. I hired a trash removal company to come in and remove old equipment, and then we worked on taking special care to deep clean all of the different appliances. It was amazing to see how big of a difference we were able to make. This blog is all about sanitizing your restaurant.
If the mess in your teenager's room is causing you stress, it might be time to take things into your own hands. This is particularly true if the standard requests for cleanliness have gone unheeded. Sadly, many teens view a messy room as a badge of honor, a way to prove their independence. If they can find their favorite shirt or their game system, the room isn't dirty. However, they're not the ones paying the bills. If you've had enough, here are three steps to take when dealing with a dirty room.
Schedule Daily Round-Ups
Your teen might not have a problem with their dirty room, which makes it a problem for you. You might be able to reach a healthy compromise if you schedule a daily round-up. Each night before your teen goes to bed, give them 10 minutes to tidy up their room. Provide the laundry bucket and the trash bag. Set a timer for 10 minutes. At the end of the time, your teen will need to have everything off the floor, including dirty laundry in the hamper and trash in the bag.
Plan an Intervention
If your teen doesn't like the idea of having their room cleaned by a parent, plan an intervention. Let your teen know that they have a specific number of days to get their room cleaned prior to the intervention. If the room is not clean to your standards by the scheduled day, let them know that you will be cleaning the room for them, which means they might not know where everything is when you're done.
Rent a Dumpster
If your teen's room looks like a hoarder lives there, and you can't see the floor, it might be time to bring in the big guns – a dumpster. Arrange to have a dumpster delivered to your home and let your teen know that they will be using the dumpster to empty out the room and get it clean. An added bonus of renting a dumpster is that you'll be able to use it to clean other areas of the house that might need your attention – such as the yard or garage.
If you can't seem to get your teen to keep their room clean – and it's bordering on a health hazard – you don't have to settle for the dirty mess. Use the tips described above to help get your teen motivated enough to keep their room clean. Contact a business, such as ESP Dumpsters & Waste Services, for more information.Share
