With the lovely summer weather and the extra time we are all spending at home, now is the perfect time to undertake a deep clean and tackle all the jobs you have been putting off.
While we're all confined to the comfort of our homes, we are quickly discovering that there is only so much TV one can watch, so why not give the interior of your home a facelift with some summer cleaning.
Here are some some tips on getting your home in top shape during the lockdown, and for many months to come.
First task the cleaning schedule should be deciding what stays and what goes in the skip (and yes, now is a good time to hire a skip ). Decluttering enables you to clean more efficiently as there are no obstacles hindering your path. Decluttering is also good for your mind as clutter in a room sends signals to your brain that you have not done any work, creating stress. Every piece of clutter is a decision deferred, so for the sake of your home and your health, declutter.
2 From the top
When it comes to cleaning, the golden rule is to start from the top and work your way to the bottom. It may be simple advice but when it comes to dusting, gravity has a huge part to play so as you clean your ceiling, dust will fall to the floor.
3 Remember protection
Obviously with the rigorous cleaning that you will be undertaking, dust and other allergens will be kicked up. If you suffer from allergies or are using heavy-duty cleaners, be sure to read the labels. Remember to wear masks, rubber gloves, and even a hairnet to try to help stop skin irritation and allergic reactions.
So there you have it. Get cleaning.
