Getting Your Home Into Ship Shape
2021 is likely to see more and more of us spending more and more time in our homes. Why? Well the 2020 coronavirus and Covid-19 pandemic is ongoing and many of us are following scientific and government advice to stay home and away from others as much as possible. Hopefully, this doesn’t continue for much longer, but for now, we are likely to get familiar with our own four walls for a little longer. Now, if you’re going to be spending more time at home, it’s a good idea to focus a little more on it. Deep cleaning and organisation can make the space much nicer to spend time in and could completely improve your experience. Here are a few tips and tricks that will help you to get your living space into ship shape as easily as possible!
Keep On Top of Your Day to Day Chores
The first step you need to take when it comes to getting your home into good shape is keeping on top of your day to day chores. These are things that you need to keep up with on a daily basis to prevent an excessive build up of dirt. Tasks to keep on top of include:
- Wiping down surfaces
- Cleaning the toilet
There are deep cleaning tasks you should undertake on a more occasional basis too. Some examples include:
- Carpet cleaning
- Wiping down skirting boards
- Beating rugs
- Dusting hard to reach places
Call In Professional Help Where Necessary
Sometimes, there are tasks that you can’t safely or effectively carry out yourself. For these, it’s a good idea to call in the professionals. They’ll have the necessary equipment, training and expertise to complete the job to a high standard. Some good examples of tasks you might want to get a professional to complete include professional pressure washing services, professional window cleaning and more.
Complete More Niche Tasks
There are a number of tasks that need to be carried out in your home, but that many of us forget and neglect, as they aren’t on our usual list of chores, or even online deep clean guides. Make sure to pay attention to every area of your home and add the lesser seen to areas to your ultimate cleaning list. One area that is often neglected, for example, is cleaning the shower curtain. A lot of people assume that this keeps itself clean, as it has clean water running down it each day. But the reality is that it often remains damp and can become a breeding ground for bacteria. This issue is resolved by simply removing the curtain from the shower rail and adding it to the washing machine on a warm wash, adding some detergent. Sometimes, niche tasks really are as simple as that!
While it may take a little time and effort, you can make your home sparkling clean and an enjoyable space to spend time in. Hopefully, some of the above suggestions can help you to get on the right track!
