It is fair to say that the vast majority of people do not enjoy cleaning. In fact Mrs MMM is the President of the Cleaning Avoidance Political Party. She absolutely hates cleaning house and will take any opportunity to put her feet up and ignore the situation at hand.
Most cleaning tasks are not altogether pleasant or enjoyable, but if your distaste for cleaning stems from being just a little bit lazy (like Mrs MMM), fear not as there are many things you can do to make cleaning easier and your home spotless.
1. Get help from professionals
The very best tip for people who despise cleaning is to have professional cleaners, such as Absolute Domestics , in to do it for you. Professional cleaners know how to clean a home thoroughly and efficiently, and will leave your home hygienically clean and looking amazing.
Many domestic cleaning services are surprisingly affordable and represent excellent value for money when you consider the time and effort it would take you to do the same work. It is also true to say that many people are so busy and time-poor, they simply cannot spare the time to clean their home from top to bottom as often as they should.
2. Clean in short bursts
If you are tackling the cleaning yourself, and putting off doing so, it is best not to try to do everything all at once. Who really wants to spend hours cleaning a whole house or apartment? Instead, take on your cleaning jobs in shorter spurts – perhaps by cleaning for a short period of time every few days.
It is one thing to say you will do this, but quite another to put it into action. A good way to address this is to draw up a cleaning schedule that specifies what you want to clean and when you will do it.
3. Get good storage
It is much easier to cope with a mess if you have somewhere to put it. Having some practical, stylish storage solutions for each room offers a great way to keep things organised and out of the way. Many different types of storage suit this purpose, including wicker baskets, antique boxes, ottomans that include storage space, shelving and modular systems. With plentiful and appropriate storage options available, you will soon realise how much easier it is to keep your home neat and tidy.
4. Say goodbye to clutter
If you really want to maintain a clean and neat home, you need to reduce the amount of clutter that you gather and keep. By going through all of your things (including clothing, knickknacks and kitchenware), you can throw away, recycle, donate or perhaps even sell things that you no longer want or need.
With less items around your house, there will be less dusting to do and less mess on display. Added to this, all homes look better when items are not competing for space and cluttering up surfaces.
5. Focus on ‘busy’ areas
If you have no time or inclination to clean your whole home, pay most attention to high-traffic areas, and the areas where guests are most likely to be. Generally, this means that the bathroom, living area, dining room and entry way should get the most comprehensive cleaning treatment.
Very few people really love cleaning, but if you are someone who is a little lazy when it comes to getting your home spick and span, use these tips to have the greatest cleaning impact with minimal effort.
