Half term is great, the kids are around, the weather’s picking up and it offers a brief reprieve from exams (if the kids at that age)
But with even more to do, and even less time to do it, it’s easy to slip behind on the house work. Many people find that they may be asking themselves a simple question:
Should I hire a cleaner?
Of course, there is no single answer to this. You’ll have to think about what you want for your home. so here are a few things to consider, based on our years of experience in the London home cleaning business. We find that there are many different ways in which we can help you keep on top of your home, from one off “spring cleans” to regular domestic house work – and even doing the ironing while we’re at it. So even if you aren’t sure you want to go in for the full works, give us a ring to see if we can help you with just the bits you need.
How often should I hoover?
One of the most frequently needed, and frequently overlooked is a good, thorough vacuum clean. While different floors and homes need different levels of care, the floor is always where a fair amount of dust, dirt and general detritus end up. In most cases, we’d suggest you have a whip round with the hoover once a week. Even if you take your shoes off inside. There are all kinds of other sources of unpleasant particles – did you know that dust is made up of dead skin? It’s important to keep on top of this job because otherwise it can get worse than you’d think.
With carpets, the dirt and dust gets trodden deep into the pile of the carpet, beyond the reach of normal domestic cleaning equipment. In this situation you might need us to bring out the more powerful kit we use for our domestic carpet cleaning service. Even on hard floors, where there isn’t the option for it to absorb, the dust and dirt just sits on top. Waiting to be stirred back into the air where it can cause trouble for those who suffer from asthma and allergies.
How can I keep my house clean?
In our experience, it’s much easier to keep your home clean if you start with it clean. Once the problems have piled up, from tidying the toys away to keeping the bathroom under control, it’s easy to become blind to mess. With the rushing to and fro that inevitably takes up most of the day, it’s rather tough to motivate one’s self to deal with the clutter which hasn’t been doing any hard for the last few weeks it’s been sitting there. But once you get back on top of things it’s much easier to keep on top of them. The odd mess or mislaid items suddenly stick out like a sore thumb, meaning the minimal effort of a single small job is actually worth while. Rather than having to face up to an avalanche of cleaning.
