Cleaning Chores That Make a Difference
Avoiding certain cleaning chores is perfectly natural, even more so if you have so many things on your plate already. The depressing weather, the crazy work schedule, fighting the flu, wanting to have as much time as possible with your loved ones. The list goes on.
And when you finally find the time to devote yourself to the cleaning of your home, you simply don’t feel like picking up a mop.
We’ve all been there.
You may feel overwhelmed by all the cleaning that needs to be done. But start with these 4 things and before you know it you will see the difference!
- Dusting the walls and furniture
While the effects on health come first, let’s be honest, a dust-free home simply looks lovelier. Dusting every surface and object in your home will take time, so focus on areas which collect a lot of dust but are easy to reach.
Walls don’t have to look like they’re covered in dust to actually be dusty. Give your walls a quick once-over and once you start having a coughing fit you’ll realize how much dust you’ve collected!
For furniture, it is better to use dampened microfiber cloths for a more thorough clean. But you can also use a feather duster if you’re ready for some more coughing.
- Cleaning the hallways and other places
Cleaning can be time-consuming when it comes to hard-to-reach areas or pieces of furniture such as sofas. For a weekly clean it’s useful to focus on more commonly used areas.
Hallways, passageways, and staircases get dirty faster than the other areas because of all the movement, so cleaning is a must. Luckily, these places are rarely cluttered with objects so some basic dusting and mopping shouldn’t take a lot of time.
- Vacuuming the rugs
Sitting areas and rugs, in particular, should be your next target. Don’t vacuum using quick back-and-forth motions! It may seem faster, but it’s less efficient. Move slowly, vacuuming strip by strip, and once you’ve covered the whole surface start from the opposite direction.
Vacuuming can be somewhat more challenging if you have pets, but worry not! A well-positioned squeaky toy will keep your companion occupied and less afraid of the big vacuum monster.
- Cleaning the throws
No one wants to spend time vacuuming the sofas, but that’s where the throws come in!
Throws are great when you want to personalize your sofa a bit, and also keep it as new as possible, but because of that, it tends to get dirty quickly. A quick hand wash of the throws will take care of any stains and spills and you’ll get that fresh look in no time!
It goes without saying that these chores are not enough and that the more thorough the cleaning the more time-consuming it is. You don’t need to do it on your own, though.
