Ensuring That Your House Is Always Looking Its Best21Jul 2014
Whether you are looking at the house in terms of it representing you, or you just want to live in a place that is always clean and tidy, the presentation of your home is important. Aside from the safety aspect of cleaning regularly to avoid any germs being an issue, there is the fact that psychologically, the brain reacts much better to a clean environment. Perhaps it is evolution telling us that chaotic living arrangements will lead to illness through dirt and the like, but it may in fact just be the case that a tidy place is much easier to relax in, as the fact of having to clean up is no longer lingering in the back of your mind! There are many tips on how you can keep your home looking its best without breaking too much of a sweat, and having a look over the following will hopefully help you work out your own routines for ensuring that the house is always looking as great as it should do!- Factor the tidiness and cleanliness of the house in to everything that you do, and you will find that it becomes second nature. Whilst you may be in a rush trying on outfits for a night out, throwing the clothes on the floor each time you discard one is only going to make things a pain the next day. It takes about three seconds longer to hang it back up, or put it in a drawer, so get in to the habit of doing so. If you apply this regularly enough, then you will likely find that it becomes the natural way that you do things, and that attitude may well spread to other parts of the house in your life.- If you are at all worried about the cleanliness of the kitchen then you can start applying the clothing principal to the way that you use the kitchen, and all other rooms in the house of course. You will find that wiping any mess up as soon as you have made it, and cleaning as you go about the cooking will ensure that at the end of the process you don’t have a mammoth job on your hands in terms of cleaning the place up! Of course you will have to do regular work in terms of cleaning the house, but if you are keeping the general level of cleanliness up, the work will be less frequent and a lot easier!- Regular small bursts of cleaning are a lot better than long days of it every couple of weeks, so try to factor a few little jobs around the house in to the working day. You will likely find that it becomes second nature to push the vacuum around the living room after breakfast on a Wednesday, and once you stop noticing it as being a hassle, the whole house work saga will no longer be the pain in the neck that it was. You will be able to relax on weekends, rather than panicking about getting the cleaning done well!- If you are seriously pushed for time, then a similar effect can be had from getting a cleaner in for a couple of hours each week. Most cleaners charge about ten pounds and hour, and spending twenty quid each week can be the perfect way to ensure that your cleaning workload is low, but that your house looks incredible at all times. It’s worth a try at least!
