Spring is here at last, and with it, comes the season of spring cleaning! Spring cleaning is a long standing tradition that aligns itself with the freshness of the spring season; new life is everywhere in the natural world, so why not give new life to your home too?
However, our lavish ideas of beautiful spring cleaning can soon be squashed by the reality of busy life. Now that the world seems to be finally opening back up due to the rollout of coronavirus vaccinations, we are going to be busier than ever in summer 2021 – so how can you keep the place spotless during this crazy time?
Here are 3 efficient spring cleaning tips for busy homeowners!
1. Compartmentalise Your Chores
One thing that makes cleaning less efficient is doing things in an illogical order. When you are trying to rush something, it can sometimes only make things take longer because you aren’t thinking clearly.
So instead of doing your cleaning in a scattered, erratic way, make sure you compartmentalise. If you are cleaning the kitchen, for example, clean the whole thing, working your way from top to bottom, before moving onto the next room. You will be amazed at how much faster you get your chores done when you do them room by room, rather than running around the house doing the things you remember first!
Additionally, some people find it helpful to make lists when they are cleaning.
2. Let Your Tools Do The Work
One sure-fire way of saving time on cleaning as a busy person is to let your tools do most of the work. Nowadays you can access cleaning tools that are automated, essentially taking some of the pressure off you and giving you more time to relax.
One of these tools is a robot vacuum. Using sensors, a robotic vacuum travels around your home, sucking up any dust or debris on the floor it covers. All you need to do is sit back and let technology do its work!
3. Tidying Comes Before A Successful Clean
If you are always tripping up on things while trying to spring clean, you’re doing it all wrong! In order to successfully clean your home to make it spotless and beautiful, you need to first go through an effective, comprehensive tidying method.
We all have certain ways of tidying that we probably don’t realise are patterns, often passed down to us by our parents. However, questioning your method of tidying, and allowing yourself to learn a more efficient way, can be highly beneficial. Try using Marie Kondo’s tidying method, in which she declutters her home by questioning whether certain items still bring her joy. This is a great way to make sure you aren’t holding onto unnecessary objects in your home.
Once you have done a successful tidy, you can move onto the cleaning part – and you’ll be happy to hear, it’s much quicker once there’s less clutter in the way!
Overall, cleaning your home can be a pain if you are a busy person. Use this blog to help you crack your spring cleaning this year!0
