So, cleaning is a terrible pain, and no one enjoys it, but in reality, it is not that hard! if you really think about the cleaning, there is nothing about it that is that difficult, except perhaps the issues that come with particularly bad limescale and burnt on oven grease. You will no doubt find that these things can be avoided through a simple set of rules to follow when approaching the cleaning that reduce those elements of the tasks at hand that make it such a pain. Let’s have a think about what those elements are. Boredom comes with the length and tedious nature of the cleaning, as well as a general distaste for how much of your spare time the process takes up. The cost of cleaning materials is a real kick in the ribs when you are on the floor as well, as not only are you not enjoying cleaning, you are paying through the nose for it! There are ways in which to approach the cleaning that get rid of all of these aspects, and it only takes a little common sense to put them right.
For a start, think about why the problems that you have with the cleaning are so apparent. You may take ages to do the cleaning because there is so much dirt to get through, or because you are easily distracted. In order to reduce the amount of time that the cleaning takes, then you should reduce the amount of dirt that you need to tackle, which can be done by making the cleaning process a lot more regular. This may seem like it will only increase your problems, but if you can split the cleaning up in to tasks, then you can spread the cleaning out across the week and get it done in an easy and efficient way, every week. Fitting smaller jobs in to the times that you have between more important parts of your life, like before you leave for work, or when you have just got in, will mean that you do not interrupt your work life, nor your weekends, so the begrudging nature of cleaning will be reduced significantly. Listening to the news , music or an audio book whilst cleaning will mean that you are getting the job done whilst also enjoying being productive in another way. The aural distraction will mean that the cleaning time goes by quicker, and you will be wiser for having listened to what you did.
Look at the tools that you use, are they efficient for your cleaning? If you have a small flat with a lot of stairs, then you need a small and lightweight vacuum cleaner, not a heavy one that does not fit in to the spaces that it needs to! In most cases, the best way to ensure that you are getting the cleaning done as quickly and efficiently as possible is to invest in tools that actually help you in this task, rather than holding you back. Who hasn’t struggled with a broken dustpan in their time!? Buying durable materials and tools will also mean that you expenditure on this hellish business of cleaning is lessened, and the insult to injury that the cost if such things can be will be reduced significantly.
Getting the cleaning to be less of a nightmare is simply down to the way you approach it. A little common sense goes a long way in this game, and if you are using your brain then there is no reason for it to be a problem!
